The demand for networked consumer systems and devices is large and growing rapidly. At home, in a car, at work or at play, consumers want transparent networking for their systems and devices that they rely on for entertainment, information, and communications. Such networking 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 strengths and special challenges to overcome. This in turn has defined the scope of consumer networking to range from body 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 systems and devices to seamlessly interact with the Internet and wireless systems such as WiFi, 3G, and future 4G networks. And this is just the beginning!

"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 areas of consumer networking, enabling technologies such as middleware and multimedia, and novel applications and services. CCNC 2005 will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, technology application panels, tutorials, and poster/demo sessions.

Please see the Conference Program page for updated conference program information.

On Thursday, 6 January 2005, a Workshop on Digital Rights Management Impact on Consumer Communications will be held from 12:15pm-5:15pm. This half-day workshop on Digital Rights Management Impact on Consumer Communications addresses problems faced by rights holders (who seek to protect their intellectual property rights) and by end consumers (who seek to protect their privacy and to preserve access they now enjoy in traditional media under).
