Explore the Latest in Consumer Communications at IEEE CCNC 2017
Early-bird 19 December 2017 Registration Deadline Approaching
The 14 annual IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC 2017) will be in Las Vegas, Nevada from 8-11 January 2017. Held in conjunction with CES, IEEE CCNC 2017 will present the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of home networking, consumer networking, enabling technologies (such as middleware) and novel applications and services. The conference offers stimulating keynote addresses on “Trends at CES” from Brian Markwalter (CEA), "Networked Human-Robot Systems" from Katia Sycara (Carnegie Mellon University), and "5G – From Theory to Practice" from James Kimery (National Instruments). 
In addition to the amazing keynote line-up, the program features:
  • Though-provoking technical sessions on green, wireless and vehicular communications, smart spaces and IoT, cyber-physical systems, mobile networks, security, wearable devices and more.
  • Interactive demonstrations from leading communications corporations and researchers showcasing technologies enhancing smart homes, e-health, transportation safety, gaming applications, autonomous vehicles, disaster relief and emergency communications.
  • Exciting panel led by industry and academia experts on fog computing, communications, storage and control, including impact on consumer devices, networking and applications.
  • In-depth workshops covering ambient assisted living, global interoperability, game theory, accessible devices and services, homeland and Internet architecture for developing regions.
  • Hand-on tutorials detailing 5G, cellular networks, computer networking, IoT, attacks on the Smart Grid, next-gen IPTV and communication for connected cars. Complimentary tutorial included with a full registration. 
Before the conference starts, get a sneak peek at selected IEEE CCNC Demos in the IEEE booth #30546 at CES 2017!  Visit for more information about the conference and the early-bird 19 December 2017 registration deadline.

Explore the Best Readings in Device-to-Device Communications

Explore the Best Readings in Device-to-Device Communications
Device-to-device (D2D) communication has been foreseen as a key complimentary emerging technology within the 5G mobile communication paradigm, providing potential use cases such as peer-to-peer communication, cellular offloading, device-based relaying, joint reception/transmission, content sharing, proximity detection, and other proximity-related services.
In this list of Best Readings on D2D communication, we start with a list of tutorial papers, books, journal special issues, and 3GPP Technical Reports related to standardization.  We then classify the most active topics within this field into seven categories, including D2D communication design and 5G; resource allocation; neighbor, service discovery and traffic offloading; power control and mode selection; medium access control and performance analysis; security and privacy; content sharing, prototyping and application layer issues.
The Best Readings in Device-to-device covers a wide range of hot topics, encouraging innovations in this technology by assisting academic and industrial researchers in devoting their effort to highly targeted resources organized by categories.
The Best Readings in Device-to-device communications can be explored in five categories — Overviews and Tutorials, Books, Special Issues, Standardization, and Topics. 
The Topics include:
  • D2D Communication Design and 5G
  • Resource Allocation for D2D Communication
  • Neighbor Discovery, Service Discovery and Traffic Offloading
  • Power Control and Mode Selection for D2D Communication
  • Medium Access Control and Performance Analysis for D2D Communication
  • Security in D2D Communication
  • D2D Content Sharing, Prototyping and Application Layer Issues
Best Readings is a time-saving innovative vehicle and a go-to source for researchers in these emerging technologies.
