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

Virtual Conference

CCNC 2021 is pleased to announce following the decision to make CCNC 2021 a virtual conference we have been working hard to identify a delivery platform that will maintain the benefits of networking and interaction that make our conference such a success.

CCNC 2021 will take place using the Virtual Conference Platform Whova EMS (Event Management System), with conferencing platform Zoom. Whova, operates as both a web-application, and a mobile application. By downloading the mobile application, you will benefit most from the networking aspects of the platform, allowing you to directly interact with presenters, speakers and attendees through the application. All-conference sessions will be accessed through Whova either on the web or mobile application.

When registering for Whova it is important that you register using the same email used for your conference registration.

Delivering Your Paper Presentation at CCNC 2021

To ensure CCNC 2021 runs smoothly while maintaining levels of interactivity we will be running technical sessions as a blend of live & pre-recorded content. Each Presenter will be required to upload a pre-recorded video of their oral presentation by the 04 January 2021 (all presentation will be oral). Presenters will be expected to attend their allocated live-session where their pre-recorded video will be shown (If the presenter wishes they may present live). Following each oral presentation, a live Q&A will take place. Attendees will be requested to attend their session 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to test their microphone level and meet the session chair.

Further requirements and instructions on how to submit your video will be provided soon.

Tutorials and Workshops at CCNC 2021

One of the main benefits of attending conference tutorials and workshops is the ability to interact and ask questions of Tutorial Instructors and Workshop Presenters. For this reason, all Tutorial and Workshop sessions at CCNC 2021 will involve interactivity, with live Q&A’s and live video and/or chat-based discussions. Sessions may, in addition, use pre-recorded content dependent on the individual session.
