IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference
(Held in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show, January 8-11, 2013)


General Call for Tutorials

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 CES (the world’s largest tradeshow on consumer technology), CCNC is organized with the objective of bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry working in all areas of consumer technologies. CCNC 2013 will feature high quality keynotes, plenary talks, panels and tutorials.

The CCNC 2013 organizing committee invites proposals for tutorials, which are to take place January 11th and 14th, 2013.  In a change from previous years, the tutorials will be open to all registered conference attendees without an additional tutorial charge. We seek proposals across a wide range of topics and levels—ranging from fundamentals to the latest advances in hot topic areas. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Mobile Devices, Platforms, & Communications
• Social Networking/Media, & Crowd Sourcing
• Wireless Networking
• Peer-to-Peer Networking & Cloud-based Content Distribution
• Multimedia Networking, Services, & Applications
• Smart Spaces & Sensor Networks
• Security, Content Protection & DRM
• Vehicular Networks • Green Communications & Computation
• eHealth, Ambient Assisted Living
• Telepresence & Tele-robotics
• Intelligent & Emotion-oriented Computing
• 3D Imaging, Processing, Communications & Display
• Innovative Multimedia Systems & Consumer Electronics
• Information Integration & Analytics
• Experiences with innovative applications.
Proposal Format: Tutorials are half day (3 hours) in length, to be scheduled on January 11 or January 14, 2013. Each tutorial proposal must contain the following:
1. Title
2. Names and Affiliations  of Speakers
3. Abstract (one or two paragraphs)
4. Intended Audience (one paragraph): Describe the background assumed of tutorial attendees. Tutorials may range from basic for attendees new to the field to advanced topics for experts.
5. Description:  A statement (no more than 3 pages) giving clear motivation/justification for the topic to be presented at CCNC and a comprehensive outline of the proposed content. 
6. Materials: A description (one or two paragraphs) of materials to be provided to attendees on the conference website – course slides, annotated bibliography, code snippets etc. NOTE: the materials themselves do not need to be provided in the proposal.
7. Bio-sketches: A half-page bio-sketch of each tutorial presenter must also be included.

Selection: All tutorial proposals will first receive peer review. Then, from the pool of proposal deemed of the highest quality, the chairs will make the final selection of tutorials to present the greatest variety to conference attendees and to fit the conference schedule.

Upon Acceptance: Speakers for all accepted tutorials will be required to sign a commitment to present at the conference within 14 days of notification. Tutorial topics and their presenters will be featured on the CCNC 2013 website before the paper submission deadline.

Conference registration fees will be waived for speakers at accepted tutorials – up to three speakers for half day tutorials.  The complimentary registration cannot be used to cover any papers accepted in the main program or workshops (that is, having a tutorial does not eliminate the need to have at least one paid registration for each paper at CCNC 2013). Materials for the tutorial must be emailed at least 14 days before the presentation date.

Proposal Submission: Tutorial proposals must be in PDF format and submitted via email to the Tutorial Chair, Sudipta Sengupta, at Any questions should also be addressed to the Tutorial Chair.
