Subject: CRN symposium of ICC 2014 Extended deadline to 7 October. 5 days left

IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC 2014)
The Centrepoint of Digital Economy

16 - 20 June 2014, Sydney, Australia
Cognitive Radio and Networks Symposium (CRN)
The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) will be held in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia between 16 and 20 June 2014. The theme of this flagship conference of IEEE Communications Society for 2014 is ?Communications: The Centrepoint of Digital Economy.? The conference will feature a comprehensive technical program including twelve Symposia and a number of Tutorials and Workshops. IEEE ICC 2014 will also include an attractive expo program including keynote speakers, and Industry Forum & Exhibitions (IF&E). We invite you to submit your original technical papers, industry forum, workshop, and tutorial proposals to this event. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ICC 2014 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®. Full details of submission procedures are available at http://www.ieee-icc.org/2014.
Scope and Topics of Interest:

The Cognitive Radio and Networks (CRN) Symposium will focus on the emerging cognitive radio communications and networking technologies, which aim at mitigating the spectrum underutilization problem in wireless accessing networks, improving the interoperability and coexistence among different wireless/wired & mobile communications systems, and making the future generation radio devices/systems autonomous and self-reconfigurable. The goal of this symposium is to bring together and disseminate the state-of-the-art research contributions that address the various aspects of analysis, optimization, design, implementation, and application of cognitive radio communications and networking technologies.

To ensure complete coverage of the advances in this field, the Cognitive Radio and Networks Symposium solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:

- Spectrum sensing, measurements and statistical modeling of spectrum usage
- Distributed cooperative spectrum sensing and multiuser access
- Dynamic spectrum accessing and sharing in unlicensed bands
- Waveform design, modulation, interference aggregation and mitigation for cognitive radio networks
- Cognitive medium access control (MAC), interference management, handoff and routing protocols
- Resource allocation for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)-based cognitive radio communications
- Distributed adaptation and optimization methods for cognitive radio networks
- Cross-layer optimization of cognitive radio networks
- Ranging and localization in cognitive radio networks
- Radio environment mapping for cognitive radio networks
- Architectures and building blocks of cognitive radio networks
- Energy-efficient environment-friendly cognitive radio communications and networking (green cognitive radio)
- Cognitive intelligent techniques (e.g., machine learning, transfer learning, information-theoretic learning, bio-inspired intelligence)
- Self-configuration, interoperability and co-existence issues
- Security and robustness of cognitive spectrum-agile networks
- Applications and services based on cognitive radio networks (e.g., cognitive networking in TV whitespace, cognitive femtocell & small cell networks, public safety networks, and vehicular networks)
- Cognitive radio standards, test-beds, simulation tools, hardware prototypes and implementation
- Regulatory policies and their interactions with communications and networking
- Economic aspects of spectrum sharing (e.g., pricing, auction) in cognitive radio networks
- Other challenges and issues in designing cognitive radios and networks
