Reconnect the World, Reconnect to CCNC
19th IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC) 
Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2022 (IN-PERSON)

The IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC), sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, is a major annual international conference. Taking advantage of its co-location with the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is the world's largest trade show on consumer technology, CCNC is organized to help the consumer electronics industry drive the advancement of the numerous wireless and wireline communications technologies that will one day provide on-demand access to both entertainment and information anytime, anywhere, regardless of time or location. This includes a detailed analysis of nearly every technological area ranging from cognitive and peer-to-peer networking to the designer services and tools used to ensure ease-of-use, security and stunning interactivity.

The conference will present the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of large scale experimentation, home/consumer networking, efficient wireless spectrum use, enabling technologies, and novel applications and services. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, special sessions, industry track sessions, tutorials, and demonstration sessions.

In addition, IEEE CCNC 2022 is proud to announce three distinguished keynote speakers: Prof. Mehdi Bennis, Head of the Intelligent Connectivity and Networks/Systems Group (ICON), University of Oulu, Finland, Prof. Yingying (Jennifer) Chen, Associate Director of the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), Rutgers University, USA, and Dr. Sunghyun Choi, Senior Vice President and Head of the Advanced Communications Research Center at Samsung Research.

As a concrete sign of return to a new normalcy, we are pleased to announce that the conference will be held in-person in Las Vegas, USA. Like pre-Covid conferences, authors of accepted papers are required to register for the conference at the full (non-student, member or non-member) rate, and the paper must be presented in-person by one of the authors of that paper. Special provisions, such as the possibility to upload pre-recorded videos of their presentations or to present their works via Zoom, will apply to authors unable to leave their countries of origin/to enter the US or to travel in general, due to Covid-19 restrictions or to well-documented health reasons.
