IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference
9-12 January 2021 // Virtual Conference

Call for Tutorials

 

IEEE CCNC 2021 invites proposals for half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours) tutorials that are scheduled to take place on the first and last day of the conference (9 and 12 January, 2021). As part of the technical program of the conference, the tutorial will be on-line (details of the format will be provided as we approach the dates of the conference). Tutorials are open to all registered conference attendees at no extra charge.

We seek proposals across a wide range of topics and levels—ranging from fundamentals to the latest advances in hot topic areas. Examples include AI-based networking, testbed and platforms for testing future wireless systems, energy harvesting and transfer, aerial and robotic-based networks, open-source 5 and 6G networking, and security and privacy in all areas of consumer communications and networking.

Proposal Format

Each tutorial proposal must contain the following:

  • Title
  • Names and Affiliations of Speakers
  • Abstract (one or two paragraphs)
  • Intended Audience (one paragraph): Describe the background that attendees should have. Tutorials may range from introductory to the field for attendees new to a topic, to advanced (for experts).
  • Description: A statement (no more than 2 pages) providing the relevance of the tutorial topic and a comprehensive outline of the tutorial content.
  • Materials: A description (one or two paragraphs) of materials to be provided to attendees through the conference website, such as slides, annotated bibliography, code snippets, etc. NOTE: the materials themselves do not need to be provided in the proposal.
  • Bio-sketches: A half-page bio-sketch of each tutorial presenter.

Selection

All tutorial proposals must be sent to the Chairs, and will be peer reviewed. The Tutorial Chairs will make a final selection of tutorials to ensure variety and relevance to the conference attendees and to best 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 IEEE CCNC 2021. Tutorial material must be emailed to the conference organizers at least 14 days before the presentation date.
All questions concerning tutorial proposals should be submitted to the Tutorial Chairs.
