On behalf of the Technical Program Committee, I warmly welcome you to Las Vegas for an exciting technical program offered
by the 2013 IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC).
Overlapping the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), IEEE CCNC was specifically organized by the IEEE
Communications Society (ComSoc) to drive the development of global consumer electronics technologies that will one day
provide access to information anytime, anywhere, regardless of time or location. The conference enjoys strong support and
participation from the consumer electronics industry and provides a mutually beneficial mix of academic and industrial
This year, we have expanded the technical scopes of IEEE CCNC to include 13 sessions. They are:
We are pleased to report a strong technical program with exceptional quality. The IEEE CCNC 2013 main program received 313 submissions. Lead by 18
Vice TPC Chairs, 402 reviewers were recruited to provide a rigorous double-blind review. On average, each paper received 3 independent reviews (910
reviews total). These reviews served as the basis to select 95 papers for presentation (30% acceptance rate). In addition, 47 papers have been selected
to present in the work-in-progress session.
During the main conference (January 12-14, 2013, Saturday to Monday), IEEE CCNC 2013 will start with a keynote talk delivered by a world class
scientist/practitioner. After that, the accepted papers will be presented in four parallel sessions. One oral session will be presented in the morning, and
two additional oral sessions will be presented in the afternoon. A panel on Home Energy Management Networking will be presented in the afternoon of
Saturday, January 12, 2013. We have designed the program considering the diversified background of IEEE CCNC audience, so that you can always find
a high quality talk of your interest at any given time, be it a high quality paper presentation or a panel. In addition, a one hour demo session will be held
each afternoon after lunch to showcase a selection of exciting leading edge consumer communication demos, some of which will be presented at the
Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at IEEE booth. The paper in the Work-In-Progress program will be presented on Monday, January 14, 2013.
One unique feature of IEEE CCNC 2013 is that the audience will be invited to vote for the best paper award and best student paper award of IEEE CCNC
2013. Each registered attendee will receive a voting sheet. Their votes will be combined with votes from an on-site award committee to determine the
awards of IEEE CCNC 2013, which will be announced at the banquet.
IEEE CCNC 2013 will offer five tutorials shared by world experts. IEEE CCNC 2013 will also present four workshops (15 accepted papers in total), which are:
I am excited that we will hold the first Grand Challenge at IEEE CCNC, which is going to be a very special live event, Mobile Code Jam, where researchers
and students present their creative ideas and programming skills in developing innovative and socially valuable mobile apps while competing for cash
prizes at IEEE CCNC 2013.
All this would not have been possible without the tremendous efforts of volunteers organizing the technical tracks, workshops, tutorials, panels and
demos; and the many TPC members and reviewers that provide the input for the papers at IEEE CCNC 2013. Most notably, I would like to thank the TPC

A very special thanks goes to the Conference General Chair, Eunsoo Shim, Samsung, for his leadership and the Steering Committee Chair: Rob Fish for
his support of the organization committee to make IEEE CCNC 2013 a success. I would also like to express sincere thanks and gratitude to Diane Williams,
who as the Conference Manager has done a tremendous detailed job supporting the conference as a whole. Finally, I would also like to thank our patrons:
Samsung, Harmon and Microsoft at Diamond level, and TNO, Quby, Ether Trust and Aniketos at Demo level.
I hope that you will enjoy our high-quality technical program; and will take advantage of the opportunities to learn about the latest research findings and
the state-of-the-art consumer communications and networking technologies. Hopefully, you will have a chance to see old friends and make new ones;
and will have an opportunity to discuss exciting new ideas with your colleagues. Please also enjoy the excellent food and shows in the evening in the
special city of Las Vegas!
