ICCE 2016 "Internet of Me": Next Gen of Consumer Connectivity

The International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE) is soliciting technical papers for tutorial, oral and poster presentations. ICCE is established as a prime home for emerging CE and papers reporting new developments in all areas of consumer electronics are invited, including but not limited to those listed below. This year, papers relating to all forms of consumer connectivity technologies, devices, and applications are particularly welcome.

ICCE Conference Theme - Internet of Me: Next Gen of Consumer Connectivity

ICCE has always prided itself on covering a broad spectrum of research activity relevant to Consumer Electronics and has a stronger reputation as a home for non-traditional consumer electronics. This walk through a smarter world means a call for wearable, smart home, automotive, context awareness, video and audio personalization, entertainment, wellness, connectivity, energy, cloud services, personal privacy, storage, computer vision, or sensors fusion.

All CE communities can be fitted under the theme covering from Services in the Internet of Me to Devices in the Internet of Me. As consumer electronic devices and services become more sophisticated and interconnected, new opportunities arise to leverage these platforms to provide integrated services to the end-user under a consumer-centric approach. These developments provide exciting prospects for growth in the personal consumer electronics sector for various stakeholders, both consumers and providers alike. This theme will allow us to experience at ICCE the newest technologies and trends to jump one step beyond today's Consumer Connectivity.

ICCE 2016 will start co-located and overlapping with the final day of the 2016 International CES. In this edition ICCE will program high level expertise Tutorials on emerging topics as well as Special Sessions and a set of relevant Keynote Speakers. A new category has been added to all tracks: the ‘Industrial Category’ which is mainly targeted at companies in CE related industries. Papers submitted under this category can be excluded from IEEE Xplore if the authors want to retain their copyrights. Also awards will be given to the best papers presented during the conference.

Other Activities Taking Place In and Around the Conference

2016 International CES

ICCE 2016 will start and overlap with the final day of the 2016 International CES. The program will feature a “Review of the 2016 International CES” by a number of IEEE technical experts.

Industrial Category in all Tracks

The ‘Industrial Categories’ is meant for papers that are submitted by non-academic, mainly targeted at companies in CE related industries. These type of papers are usually of more practical contents and implementation focus.Papers submitted are subject to acceptance through the regular review by the technical program committee but qualified industry reviewers will do the review for these papers.In addition, papers submitted under this category can be excluded from IEEE Xplore if the authors want to retain their copyrights.

Special Conference Sessions

ICCE has always prided itself on covering a broad spectrum of research activity relevant to Consumer Electronics. ICCE 2016 will incorporate several parallel conference tracks of Special, Invited Sessions.

Tutorials

High level tutorials on emerging technologies will be scheduled during the Conference. This edition we plan to offer a reduced set of high-level expertise tutorials (up to 4 hours each) on top emerging topics and newest trends and technologies in CE. Tutorials attendance will not have extra cost for ICCE registered attendees.

Doctoral Workshop

The Doctoral Workshop is a more interactive session than a regular conference paper presentation, with a panel of experienced mentors from academia and industry providing specific advice for improvement on the author’s paper and presentation style.
