1 st Workshop on New Applications and Performance of Cognitive Radio and Resource-aware
Communication Networks in conjunction with IEEE IPCCC 2010

Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, December 9 th -11 th 2010,

The recent ruling by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opening up portions of the TV bands, also known as TV White Spaces (TVWS), for opportunistic transmission has spurred significant interest in the academia and industry to develop theory, prototypes and standards that leverage this new spectrum opportunity. Cognitive Radio (CR) is an enabling technology that will allow adapting the radio’s operating characteristics to the real-time conditions of the environment and make effective use of the TVWS while protecting incumbents. Similarly, devices that make optimal use of energy availability, computation ability, transmission power, and other network resources to enable new and innovative application scenarios merit the attention of the community. As an example, energy efficient “green” communications may be realized by regulating transmit power and identifying frequencies with greater propagation distances. Similarly, wireless devices for electric utility metering and medical implantable sensors may identify and adapt the functioning of the physical, link, and network layer protocols for enhanced coverage, more robust and collision-free operation. Such novel applications require re-visiting several classical networking paradigms of spectrum-agile communication, energy-efficient communication, node mobility, and merging inter-disciplinary research from a practical viewpoint.

This workshop will focus on key research challenges related to resource-aware communication networks, including the dynamic spectrum access paradigm, cognitive radio networks, sensor and mobile ad hoc networks, and it is intended to be a forum for collaboration across multiple communities, ranging from academic to government to industry. Original papers are invited on protocol/algorithm design, experimental results, analytical modeling covering but not limited to following topics:

Paper submission

Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. Paper length should not exceed 8 pages formatted in IEEE conference style, including the abstract, figures and references. Papers should be submitted in pdf format through the EDAS paper submission. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one author of accepted papers is required to register at the full registration rate.
