CDS 2017: The 5th IEEE International COMPSAC Workshop on Consumer Devices and Systems

Paper submission site

Workshop Organizers:
Yasuo Okabe, Kyoto University, Japan (
Yoshia Saito, Iwate Prefectural University, Japan (
Atsushi Tagami, KDDI R&D Laboratories, Inc., Japan (

Goal of the Workshop:
The aim of this workshop is to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art, research and development in the area of consumer devices and systems, and to promote the study of both fundamental and practical aspects of such devices and systems. The workshop addresses researchers from different disciplines in academia and industry, as well as practitioners, who share interests in consumer devices and systems. The focus will be on novel consumer devices and systems, experiences drawn from development of such devices and systems, and emerging technologies for such devices and systems.

Workshop Theme:
Consumer devices and systems have been smarter than before rapidly. Such devices include AV devices, home appliances, mobile phones, home gateways, healthcare devices, wearable devices, robots, drones, and other devices so called IoT (Internet of Things). Such devices have computing and communication functions, and communicate with each other. Networks for consumer devices are also emerging rapidly. However, such networks suffer from incompatibility in many cases. Integrated architecture, protocols and middleware for consumer networks are required for advanced consumer systems, which include home energy management systems (HEMS), digital healthcare, home security, home entertainment, social network service, smart service for the handicapped, and so on. Recently, much attention has been paid to smart home and smart city, and cloud computing supports such applications. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and engineers to present research results in this area

Scope of the Workshop:
Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of consumer devices and systems will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome:

  • Smart Consumer Devices (e.g. Smart Phone, Smart TV, Home GW, Wearable Device)
  • Novel Architecture, Protocols and Middleware for Consumer Networks
  • Novel Systems and Applications for Consumer Devices
  • Smart Home and Smart City
  • Energy Management (e.g. HEMS/BEMS, Smart Grid)
  • Security, Privacy and Management Issues for Consumer Devices, Systems and Services
  • M2M Communications for Consumer Devices and Networks
  • Social Network Services for Consumer Devices
  • Emerging Technologies for Consumer Devices and Systems (e.g. Cloud Computing)
