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.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

- Cognitive radio network protocols, algorithms, architecture
- Reliability, efficiency and routing issues of context-aware systems
- Communication and Networking for Cyber-Physical Systems
- Cognitive and context-aware computing
- Smart protocols and algorithms
- Formal methods of context-awareness and cognitive networks
- Context-aware communications, routing, and networking
- Cognitive sensor network
- Network economics and game-theoretic approaches
- Context-aware information retrieval
- Machine learning for cognitive networks
- Context-aware and cognitive services and advertising
- Context-awareness in portable devices and mobile users
- Context-awareness in cyber-physical systems
- Context aware and cognitive vehicular and transportation systems
- Context-aware and cognitive green communications and networking
- Context-aware and cognitive network security approaches
- Context-awareness in the Internet of Things
- Context-aware cloud computing, storage and networking
- Context-aware and cognitive networks for cyber physical systems
- Context-awareness in wireless/wired networks
- Context-awareness in multimedia content distribution
- Context-aware communications services and applications
- Context-aware social networks
- Standardization and regulations for context-aware cognitive networking
- Biologically-inspired cognitive and context-aware networking
