On behalf of the IEEE CCNC 2013 Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Tenth
Annual IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference.
This year’s IEEE CCNC follows its well-recognized tradition of combining theory and practice by bringing
together academia and industry in the key future growth area of consumer communications – which, as
all of us witness every day, is reshaping the consumer landscape, from social networking and mobile
commerce, to entertainment and education. In spite of the tough economic times over the last few
years, IEEE CCNC has continued to receive a great number of submissions, allowing us to compile a
comprehensive program with many excellent contributions and with numerous distinguished industry
experts offering keynotes, workshops and tutorials for our participants.
Reflecting the mix of academia and industry, with many IEEE CCNC participants also visiting CES, this year we continue our
integration with CES: the first day of IEEE CCNC overlaps with the final day of CES, a move we hope simplifies participation of CES
attendees in the tutorials and workshops.
IEEE CCNC 2013 emphasizes the future direction of the evolution of the consumer communications: convergence of communications
and computing enhancing and creating new possibilities of consumer communications and applications. To accommodate the fast
evolution, the technical tracks got overhauled and expanded in a great extent, now covering from wireless communications to green
communications to intelligent computing. This change lets IEEE CCNC cover what really matters to consumers. But also by
choosing targeted topics for our four workshops that explore novel directions and offer a forum for recent research results. Our five
tutorials capture the key topics of today’s and tomorrow’s consumer communications and networking. The IEEE CCNC program is
completed by an industry panel looking at the enabling technologies and opportunities in smart home energy management. IEEE
CCNC thus continues to recognize the need for an exchange across layers, businesses, and academia/industry and provides a
premier venue meeting this demand!
We are proud to welcome four high-caliber distinguished speakers from academia and industry who will be sharing their
perspectives with us. For the opening keynote on Saturday morning, we are very pleased to present Dr. Donald L. Schilling, Life
Fellow of the IEEE and Chairman of LINEX Technologies. On Saturday evening, we are honored to present our second keynote
speaker, Dr. Kilsu Eo, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics and Vice Chairman of Korea Embedded Software Industry
Council. On Sunday morning, we are very pleased to present our third keynote speaker from Microsoft. Finally, we are happy to
announce our fourth keynote, scheduled for Sunday evening, will be given by Dr. I.P. Park, Executive Vice President and CTO of HAR-
MAN International.
We are confident that you will find a multitude of stimulating presentations in the technical sessions for which we want to thank Jin
Li for putting together an extremely strong set of papers across all topics relevant to consumer communications. Jin’s introduction
on the following pages will provide you with further guidance where to set your sights on. The regular sessions are augmented by
work-in-progress-style short papers. This year’s IEEE CCNC will continue the past success of live demonstrations, emphasizing its
practical side. We are happy to offer two demonstration sessions, these follow the lunch break on Saturday and Sunday.
It is exciting to hold the first Grand Challenge in IEEE CCNC, which is going to be a very special live event, Mobile Code Jam, this
year where researchers and students present their creative ideas and programming skills in developing innovative and socially
valuable mobile apps while competing for cash prizes.
Following the popularity of the previous years, we again offer complimentary tutorials to all attendees. IEEE CCNC 2013 features five
tutorials on a broad set of topics, from advances in home networking standardization to vehicular networking. Please check the
variety of offerings. The tutorials will be taking place on Friday and Monday.
Finally, I want to extend my thanks to the people who are truly responsible for making this conference a success through their
generous contributions of time and energy. My thanks to: Jin Li, Technical Program Chair; Cheng Huang, Grand Challenge Chair;
Stan Moyer, Industry Session Chair; Frank den Hartog and Venkatesh Prasad, Demo Co-Chairs; Alexandros G. Dimakis, Workshop
Chair; Sudipta Sengupta, Tutorial Chair; Alex Gelman, Publicity Chair; Rob Fish, Patron Chair; Henry Holtzman, Best Paper Award
Chair; Bruce Worthman, Treasurer; Heather Sweeney, Marketing; and finally special thanks to Diane Williams, who as ComSoc
Project Manager did – once more – a tremendous job of pulling everything together.
We are looking forward to exciting event and hope that you will find IEEE CCNC 2013 to be enjoyable and a great place to discuss
and network.
