DySPAN 2014 - The IEEE International Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN) symposium

Date2014-04-01 - 2014-04-04


VenueVirginia, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

IEEE DySPAN is the premier conference to discuss, publish and present recent advancements in Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) and Cognitive Radio, including novel approaches and technologies enabling more efficient use of the radio spectrum. There has been tremendous progress in the research, development, and regulatory acceptance of DSA in recent years and the organizers of IEEE DySPAN 2014 encourage submissions that exhibit recent success stories and research results.
In addition to the regular tracks for technology and policy papers, the special themes for 2014 are advanced spectrum engineering and regulatory approaches focusing on sharing Government spectrum (e.g.: S-band RADAR), novel spectrum sharing methods and policies, business and economic modeling studies and systems oriented research.
IEEE DySPAN 2014, like its predecessors, is a unique symposium that gathers the technology and regulatory policy communities together. In addition to program tracks for technology and policy papers, the conference will hold system demonstrations, panels, and tutorials that are tailored for special audiences such as regulators and industry. The conference will also host several keynote sessions given by leaders of the technology and policy communities.
IEEE DySPAN 2014 welcomes contributions dealing with regulatory aspects of dynamic spectrum access, theoretical studies, algorithm and protocol design for cognitive radios and networks, as well as application-oriented contributions dealing with architectures, platforms, signaling and multiple access schemes. We are particularly looking for papers reporting on systems aspects and prototypes, summaries of regulatory options and advancements, spectrum measurements and analysis of white space opportunities, and business cases for advanced spectrum engineering. We invite contributions outlining advances in self-optimization, learning, and context sensitivity of cognitive radios, and DSA concepts that consider a complete network and describe novel optimization schemes.
Best student papers will be awarded for the technical and policy tracks. These awards are sponsored by IEEE TCSIM (Technical Committee on Simulation).
The program seeks original and unpublished work not currently under review by any other technical journals/magazines/conferences, but welcomes opportunities for interdisciplinary teams to present previous policy work to the technical audience.
