On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the 2017 IEEE Conference on Standards for Communications & Networking (CSCN’17), going to be held in Helsinki, Finland’s capital. The dates of CSCN’17 were deliberately chosen to have the conference right after the Q3 Broadband Forum meeting that will take place in Helsinki, Finland (18– 20 Sep. 2017). IEEE CSCN 2017 will be collocated with the IEEE 5G-IoT Summit Helsinki , together forming the Helsinki5GWeek.

As in previous editions, CSCN’17 will deliver a rich technical program discussing the future of mobile communications systems, offering distinguished keynotes, panels and technical sessions. The technical sessions will consist of technical papers reviewed and selected by an international technical program committee representing both academia and industry, with a strong standardization background.

CSCN’17 will be an excellent networking and publicity event with strong presence of industry, offering the opportunity for academics and industrial people to meet and exchange ideas and information. This is indeed one of the main objectives of the conference. CSCN’17 will be also a platform for presenting and discussing standards-related topics in the areas of communications, networking, cloud computing, and related disciplines, facilitating standards development as well as cooperation among the key players.
