Call for Workshop Proposals:

The 29th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN) will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA August 3-6, 2020. ICCCN workshops are exciting forums to present, discuss, and formulate specialized topics and emerging hot research topics (new areas, new problems or new methods). The topic of the proposed workshop should offer a perspective distinct from and complementary to the research themes of the main conference. Workshops for presenting papers from industry and papers on design and implementations of systems and services are welcome. As the ICCCN is a premier international conference in the field, a workshop at the conference will generate high visibility. Accepted and registered (and presented by one of authors) workshop papers will be published and included in the conference proceedings.


We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of research and application areas covered by the ICCCN conference. We welcome workshops on topics in network research, practice, and education. The workshop format itself should favor interaction among participants and community building. We welcome returning workshops. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


·         5G Wireless Systems

·         Edge Computing

·         Networking Architectures

·         Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Communications and Networks

·         Internet of Things

·         Big Data Networking
