IEEE International Workshop on Cloud-assisted Context-Aware Networks and Cognitive Networks 2015 (IEEE CCAN-2015in conjunction with IEEE CCNC 2015 
January 9 – 12, 2015, Las Vegas, Nevada USA


Future generation wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically based on their operating situation. With the emergence of software defined networks, context awareness and dynamic adaptive services and application are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, services, and applications to user's context change. In addition, context awareness, with the help of software defined and cognitive systems, allows customization of operating parameters of devices, users, applications, and networks based on the current context. Such systems are playing an increasingly prevalent and important role in this electronic era such as healthcare, manufacturing, civil infrastructure, aerospace, entertainment, transportation and many automated physical systems. Cloud has infinite resources for computing for context-aware cognitive networks.  Cloud-assisted will not only enhance performance of context-aware cognitive networks itself but also process, analyze and manage big data efficiently.  

The IEEE CCAN-2015 will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government and industries to exchange ideas, present new results and provide future visions on these topics. Original technical papers on the advances in Cloud-assisted Context-Aware and Cognitive Networks  as well as those that describe practical deployment and implementation experiences are solicited for presentation and publication.
