demand for networked consumer systems and devices is large and growing
rapidly. At home, in a car or truck, at work or at play, Internet citizens
want transparent internetworking for the systems and devices that provide
entertainment, information, and communications. This internetworking
should be on-demand, with whomever or whatever they want, regardless
of time or location. As a result, consumer networking is gaining increasing
attention from industry spawning a range of dramatically different solutions
including wireless, wireline, and power line networked communications
environments, each with their own strength and special challenges to
overcome. This in turn has defined the scope of consumer networking,
to range from the body area networking and personal area networking
to home networking and wide area networking. In the not too distant
future, we will see Ad hoc networking augmented with sensors sharing
networked knowledge that enables devices and systems to seamlessly interact
with Internet and wide are wireless systems such as WiFi, 3G and future
4G networks. And this is just the beginning!
This phenomenon, - "Consumer Communications and Networking",
has been attracting many researchers in diverse areas from networking
to consumer electronics. This conference will present the latest approaches
and technical solutions in the area of consumer networking, enabling
technologies such as middleware and multimedia, and novel applications
and services. The conference will include a peer-reviewed program of
technical sessions, technology application panels, tutorials, and poster
sessions. CCNC 2004 provides a compelling forum for formal discussion
and socialization of many of these research challenges with seasoned
practitioners and colleagues from throughout the industry and academia.
