Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC)
The Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC) of the IEEE Computer Society (CS) promotes activities, offers the information exchange, and stimulates the growth of those systems that integrate communications features with computer systems. While the focus on this integration is laid on both wired and wireless communications (in terms of protocols, applications, and interfaces), the system's view point addresses layer 1 and 2 aspects (including energy savings and technology). The TCCC also aims at fostering the spread and application of communication technologies in various application domains, which have not been exploiting the full potential of communication technology on a daily basis yet. Those include a.o. healthcare, automotive, supply chain, and retailing applications.
The TCCC sponsors not only the traditional series of local and metropolitan area networks, but it sponsors world-wide applicable communication protocols and systems, all the way up to layer 4 plus dedicated application support. On an annual basis, TCCC sponsors several conferences and workshops, including its flagship conference, the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN). In the past a number of different conferences and workshops has been sponsored, such as the IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols, the IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications, and the IEEE Symposium on a World of Wireless, Mobile and Multimedia. For upcoming conferences sponsored by the TCCC please refer to the "Recent News" section below.
Questions and comments about the committee can be directed to the current TCCC Chair Nils Aschenbruck, University of Osnabrück, Germany who followed since October 1, 2013 the Past Chair Prof. Dr. Burkhard Stiller, CSG@IFI, University of Zurich, Switzerland.
Please take note of the fact that there is another TCCC established, which is the IEEE ComSoc TCCC (Communications Society), accessible at the URL:http://committees.comsoc.org/tccc/.
