SRIF 2013 - Second Workshop of Software Radio Implementation Forum

Date2013-08-12 - 2013-08-16


VenueHong kong, Hong Kong SAR Hong Kong SAR



Topics/Call fo Papers

The forum is intended for academic and industrial practitioners and researchers who develop software radio platforms and who implement innovative wireless systems on software radio platforms to (i) demonstrate feasibility; and (ii) identify new critical problems that demand research attention.
Although the idea of Software Defined Radio (SDR) was conceived 20 years ago, it remains today one of the most vigorous and growing research areas in wireless communications. On the one hand, the cost of radio components, chipset, and platforms with programmable features is now almost within reach of integration into consumer products. On the other hand, the very definition of Software Defined Radio has been significantly extended since its inception: from “just” reshaping of PHY waveforms to full reconfiguration of the whole protocol stack as well as virtualization of PHY/MAC/access functionalities. There has also been increased interest to explore ways to describe the radio behavior through application programming interfaces and languages independent of the underlying platform.
SRIF 2013 aims to bring together practitioners and researchers of software-defined radio in academia and industry to share the latest development, experiences, and insights, in this exciting area. Through the exchange, the workshop aims to encourage and engender lively collaborations between academia and industry. In particular, the workshop aims to (i) reach out to industrial participants to share their best practices; and (ii) expose the state-of-the-art wireless research based on SDR to industrial participants in order to seek feedback.
Toward that end, we invite participants from the industry and academia to submit papers, demonstrations, and posters in all areas related to software radio platforms and system prototypes on them.
Although this workshop has an emphasis on implementations, not all submissions need to have the systems realized. New ideas that challenge the existing SDR methodologies and paradigms are especially welcome.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
New hardware and software architectures for software radio platforms
New programming model of SDR
New PHY and MAC primitives and abstractions
Prototypes of novel wireless systems on SDR
State-of-the-art performance of wireless systems on SDR
New applications of SDR (e.g., security, localization, RFID, biomedical applications, etc.)
Theory versus practice (e.g., comparison of what is achievable in theory and what has been achieved in practice)
New ideas that challenge the existing practice
WLAN and LTE cellular networks with SDR
Prototypes and implementations on platforms other than SDR
