IEEE CCNC to Run Concurrently with CES
New York, NY — The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) has issued a "Call for Papers" with a June 1, 2009 deadline for the 7th Annual IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC) to be held January 9-12, 2010 at Harrah's Las Vegas Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Conference is being held concurrently with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

IEEE CCNC is dedicated to highlighting, discussing and advancing the latest consumer communications and networking technologies, devices and services. Under the theme of "Empowering the Connected Consumer," the 2009 event drew more than 450 researchers, engineers, government officials and industry professionals who attended approximately 300 technical sessions, workshops, demonstrations and keynote addresses.

"The worldwide demand for networked consumer systems and devices is growing rapidly from consumers who want seamless and transparent access to all of their entertainment, information, and communications services," says General Co-Chair Jorg Ott of TKK in Finland. "This extends through every layer of networking, no matter if the user is at the office, home, in their car or at the store or local coffee shop."

IEEE CCNC was organized specifically to help the consumer electronics industry drive the advance 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. The conference covers nearly every area of communication technology ranging from cognitive and peer-to-peer networking to the services and tools used to ensure ease-of-use, security and stunning interactivity.
