ICCCN is one of the leading international conferences for presenting novel ideas and fundamental advances in the fields of computer communications and networks. ICCCN serves to foster communication among researchers and practitioners with a common interest in improving computer communications and networking through scientific and technological innovation.

The primary focus of the ICCCN 2017 conference is on new and original research results in the areas of design, implementation, and applications of computer communications and networks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cognitive, Cellular and Mobile Networks (CCM)
  • Communication Architecture, Algorithms, Modeling and Evaluation (CAAME)
  • Data Centers and Big Data Computing (DCBC)
  • Green Networking and Sustainable Computing (GREEN)
  • Grid, Cloud, Internet and Middleware Computing and Communication (GCIM)
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Multimedia and Real-Time Networking (MRN)
  • Security, Privacy, and Trust (SPT)
  • Sensor/Embedded Networks and Pervasive Computing (SNPC)
  • Software Defined Networks and Network Testing and Deployment (SDN)
  • Social Networks and Computing (SNC)
  • Wireless LAN, Ad Hoc, and Mesh Networks (WAM)
  • Hot Topics in Networking (HOT)

Instructions for Authors:
Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EasyChair ( as PDF files (formatted for 8.5×11-inch paper).

Each full registration covers up to two conference papers authored by the registered author.Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.

ICCCN 2017 workshops are exciting forums to present, discuss, and formulate specialized topics and emerging hot research topics (new areas, new problems or new methods). The workshops offer a perspective distinct from and complementary to the research themes of the main conference. Workshop papers should be no longer than 6 pages with up to two extra pages given the authors are willing to pay extra page charge (manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in total). The detailed info can be found in the workshop Call for Papers (or visit For any questions or additional information, please contact the Workshop, General, or TPC Chairs listed below.

Call for Poster Papers:
The 26th International Conference on Computer Communication and Networks (ICCCN 2017) provides an opportunity to present in-progress work in the fields of computer communications and networks. Topics of interest are the same as the research topics in the ICCCN’17 conference Call for Papers. Early implementations, prototypes, work-in-progress systems/applications as well as commercial products that are related to the topics are welcome. Presenting a poster is an effective way to obtain early and valuable feedback from a knowledgeable crowd at the conference.

Poster Paper Submission:
Posters must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font). Each poster submission must be no longer than 2 pages including all figures/tables and references. Poster papers should be submitted to In the submission form, select the Posters Track.
