(Held in Conjunction with IEEE SECON 2010)
June 21, 2010,
Motivated by the skyrocketing demand for radio spectrum, facilitated by regulatory policy movements, and enabled by advances in RF technologies, there has been significant research towards developing networking technologies for white spaces -- the allocated but unutilized and under-utilized radio spectrum. One noticeable example is the recent prototype development and FCC historical rulings on white spaces in the TV bands. This workshop aims at providing a timely venue for discussing the current activities and findings in the field of cognitive radio networks, dynamic spectrum access, interference prevention, coexistence, and regulatory issues. This workshop will focus on recent advances as well as challenging papers. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
· Spectrum Sensing and Spectrum Management
· Cognitive Radio Test-Beds and Hardware Prototypes
· DSA/Cognitive Radio Standardization Activities (e.g. IEEE P1900, IEEE 802.22)
· Accreditation, Trust, & Security Mechanisms for DSA Networks
· Cross-Layer Protocol Design
· Cooperation and Game-Theoretical Protocols for Cognitive Radios
· Practical Experience and Systems Implementations
The workshop aims to serve as a discussion forum for the research community to discuss the key technical challenges in the design and implementation
of dynamic spectrum access and cognitive radio technologies. Therefore, the workshop will feature a set of invited talks from leading researchers.
Paper Submission Instructions: All paper submissions will be handled electronically via the EDAS system. The paper must be formatted according to IEEE
conference proceedings style in two-column format, with a maximum of six pages (including figures, tables, and references) using fonts of 10-point
size or greater.
Poster/Demo Submission Instructions: Submission of a demo or a poster requires a written 3-page summary describing the demo or the research results that
are to be presented. Submission should go through EDAS. The authors of the accepted posters/demos will have the option of whether to include a 3-page
summary in the workshop proceeding, which will be archived by IEEE Xplore.
