What do you know about smart radio?

If you've got something to say about smart radio, then it's your lucky day. IEEE Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN) 2011 has issued a call for papers and demonstrations, with a deadline of November 15th. This event focuses on emerging wireless technology research and next-generation smart-radio systems. The group is particularly looking for papers highlighting dynamic spectrum access (DSA), cognitive radio domain topics such as advanced spectrum engineering and spectrum sharing. Organizers have a special interest in papers detailing radical optimization schemes, white space opportunities, regulatory advancements, and theoretical studies.

The DySPAN meeting takes place May 3-6, 2011 in Aachen, Germany. For anyone as ignorant as I about German geography, Aachen was formerly known by its French name of Aix-la-Chapelle. It is Germany's most westerly city and historically one of Europe's most important towns, lying near the Dutch and Belgian frontiers in a forest-ringed basin in the foothills of the Eifel and the Ardennes. Sounds great! Anyway back to the meeting… If you want to deliver a tutorial or technical paper, you can head over to www.ieee-dyspan.org for more conference information including detailed “Call for Paper” submission instructions.

Major subject areas include:

  • New spectrum measurements and sharing models
  • Architecture and platforms for dynamic spectrum access networks
  • Efficient and broadband spectrum sensing mechanisms and protocol support
  • Interference metrics and measurements
  • Radio resource management and dynamic spectrum access networks
  • Applications of DSA
  • Multiple schemes and cross-layer optimization for cognitive radio networks
  •  QoS provisioning and MAC protocol

If you're heading out to the conference or will be presenting a paper, sound off in the comments so we can be sure to look you up!
