IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference
10–13 January 2025 // Las Vegas, NV, USA

Call for Workshop Proposal


Workshop Proposals Due: 23 June 2024
Proposal Acceptance Notification: 22 July 2024

The Organization Committee of the CCNC 2025 invites researchers, developers, and practitioners from the field of consumer communications and networking to submit workshop proposals!

Workshops provide a lively and interactive forum for discussion within areas of special interest pertinent to consumer communications and networking. Workshops aim at examining an area in a less formal, open environment for the free exchange of views, and possibly in a more focused way than in the main track of the conference itself. Workshop proposals are welcomed in all areas of consumer communications and networking.


Examples comprise (alternative and additional topics are highly welcome!):

  • Wireless Systems (WiFi 7, 6G and beyond)
  • Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence in Communications & Networking
  • Energy-aware, sustainable Consumer Networks / Green Radio
  • Resilience in Consumer Communications & Networks
  • Consumer Networks as Enabler for IoT
  • Cyber-Physical Systems based on Consumer Networking
  • Ultra-High Data-Rate and Low Latency Applications (AR/VR/xR)
  • Positioning and Sensing in 6G
  • Multiple-Drone- / UAV-Applications
  • Networking Architectures (Cloudlet and Edge Computing)
  • mmWave / THz Ultra High Frequency Communication
  • High Mobility in Consumer Communication and Networking


CCNC workshops will be organized on the first and last day of the conference
(January 10th & 13th).


The workshop organizers should submit a workshop proposal by June 23rd, 2024.
Each Workshop proposal is limited to 2-3 pages and should include:

  1. Title of workshop and proposed URL of site to host CFP, program etc.
  2. Themes of the workshop and topics of interest, and how these relate to the overall conference.
  3. Names, affiliations, and a short bio (up to 200 words) of the organizers.
  4. Brief description (up to 1 page) of research, industry, and practitioners’ topics of interest that the workshop will address, and why the workshop is of interest to the conference participants.
  5. Expected number of participants and potential program committee members.
  6. Description of the publicity plan on how to attract participants and submissions.
  7. Planned format: participant selection, timeline, type of contributions, discussions and integration of non-presenting participants:
    • Full-day workshops should aim for 8-9 accepted papers or invited technical talks. Half-day workshops should aim for 4-5 accepted papers or invited technical talks. Indicate the maximum length of the papers to be submitted.
    • If the workshop includes invited technical talks (i.e., presentation of a non-peer-reviewed paper such as a keynote speech), the proposal should include a subset of invited speakers who are willing to attend and participate if the workshop is accepted.
  8. If applicable, a description of past editions of the workshop, including location (i.e., which conference), dates, number of submitted and accepted papers, and number of attendees.
  9. A draft workshop call for papers with the names, affiliations, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of the workshop organizers.

The review criteria for workshop proposals are merit based and priority will be given to workshops with topics relevant to the conference theme. Accepted workshop papers will be published in the IEEE CCNC 2025 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

All proposals and questions should be submitted to the Workshops Co-Chairs.
