            2nd IEEE International Workshop on Cognitive
                                  Radio Networks

Workshop Theme

Cognitive radio networks are intelligent networks that can automatically sense the environment and adapt the communication parameters accordingly. These types of networks have applications in dynamic spectrum access, co-existence of different wireless networks, interference management, etc. They are touted to drive the next generation of devices,protocols and applications. Clearly, the cognitive radio network paradigm poses many new technical challenges in protocol design, power efficiency, spectrum management, spectrum detection, environment awareness, new distributed algorithm design, distributed spectrum measurements, QoS guarantees, and security. Overcoming these issues becomes even more challenging due to non-uniform spectrum and other radio resource allocation policies, economic considerations, the inherent transmission impairments of wireless links, and user mobility.

Topics of Interests
Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of cognitive radio
networks are solicited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
● Spectrum etiquette and dynamic spectrum sharing techniques
● Fundamental performance limits of cognitive radio communications
● Wideband sensing and multiband agile wireless networks
● Platforms for the support of adaptive, spectrum agile, and cognitive networks
ىى (e.g., software defined radios, reconfigurable radios)
● Cognitive protocols and algorithms from PHY to Application layers
● Interference measurements and metrics
● Cross-layer cognitive algorithms
● QoS provisioning in adaptive, spectrum agile, and cognitive networks
● Interoperability, interference and co-existence of dissimilar wireless networks
● Simulation of cognitive wireless networks
●ىSupport for multimedia applications
●ىSecurity issues
●ىSpectrumى policy reform issues
●ىEconomics of spectrum policy reform
