8th IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2023)
[in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2023]

26-29 March 2023, Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Workshop website:



Over the last years, wireless communication networks have faced ever-increasing traffic demands beyond the available capacity, a problem that is expected to worsen in the foreseeable future with the requirement for high data-rate, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) services and the advent of a myriad of machine-type devices interconnected through the Internet of Things (IoT) for massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC). In order to cope with the forecasted traffic loads, an essential requirement for future wireless communication systems is efficient, flexible and dynamic spectrum utilization. Smart spectrum exploitation techniques have been developed for WRANs in TV white spaces, 4G LTE-LAA/5G NR-U mobile networks in ISM bands, CBRS radar systems, and cognitive satellite communications, to mention just a few examples. Spectrum sharing and on-demand spectrum assignment are very hot topics for innovative and sustainable future wireless world and continues to be an active field of research in the academic and industrial communities as well as in spectrum regulation activities.

The 8th edition of the IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum aims to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners as well as members of standardization bodies and government to meet and exchange ideas on research about smart spectrum for sustainable future wireless world. This workshop aims to stimulate discussion and generation of innovative ideas for smart spectrum exploitation.


The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Smart spectrum solutions for eMBB and mMTC/IoT in 5G/6G networks.
- Dynamic spectrum sharing for carrier independent operators such as private 5G/6G, local 5G/6G, industrial 5G/6G.
- Carrier aggregation and and other multi-connectivity techniques based on spectrum sharing for both sub-6GHz, mmWave and higher spectrum.
- Spectrum sensing, statistical modeling and field measurements.
- Radio propagation modelling for spectrum sharing.
- Sensor networks for smart spectrum awareness.
- Interference management and avoidance techniques.
- PHY/MAC layer techniques for enhanced spectrum exploitation (massive MIMO, full-duplex, NOMA, etc.).
- Machine learning, deep learning and other artificial intelligence techniques for smart spectrum.
- Practical applications and use cases of smart spectrum exploitation in modern systems.
- Field experiments and practical/prototype implementations.
- Regulatory framework and activities for smart spectrum exploitation.
- Operation models and economic aspects of smart spectrum.
