Cognition is old concept but it is emerging as a new and promising methodology with the development of computer and ubiquitous networks. Cognitive-workshop is to promote research works in this emerging area of cognitive-inspired computing, networks, systems, and applications. Cognitive radio networks are specially focused in this workshop for many issues such as dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio network design and optimization, software-defined and flexible radio architectures, channel modeling, collaborative communications, cross layer design, routing method. Beyond these issues, cognitive computational modeling and theory from machines to human beings in the computer networks (e.g., expert systems, behavior recognitions, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling) are also in the scope of the workshop. It solicits high quality papers that illustrate novel cognitive methods, algorithms, theoretical analysis, modeling, research results, applications, projects, surveys and industrial experiences. It will serve as a forum for researchers to present and discuss the latest research results, novel cognitive techniques, concepts and analyses.

Authors are invited to submit original technical papers covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below:
• Cognitive modeling and architecture
• Dynamic radio resource management / interference coordination
• Learning/training algorithms
• Distributed algorithms for spectrum detection and cooperative spectrum sensing/fusion
• Interoperability and coexisting of wireless networks
• Cross-layer design for cognitive networking
• Self-organized networks, cognitive MAC, multicast, and routing optimization
• Cooperative radio resource management, spectrum policy, standardizations
• Multi-antenna / multi-link transmission
• Wideband, cooperative, and compressed spectrum sensing
• OFDM/FFT/Modulation
• Directional antenna design and networks
• Coding theory/data fusion/data aggregation
• Asynchronous signal sensing
• Cognitive channel / interference modeling
• Hardware prototypes for cognitive radio
• LPD/LPI/resiliency/routing/data security
• Policy based cognitive radio control
• Dynamic systems and Bayesian modeling
• Machine & human behavior recognitions and network data analysis
• Cognitive computational modeling and theory
• Expert systems

Manuscript Guidelines

Paper Submission Web: by clicking on Cognitive 2012
Paper Submission Email:

All submitted manuscripts should be prepared as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). For more information please see Outgoing/proceedings/. Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.

Manuscript submission procedure is available over the Web at We encourage you to use edas online submission by selecting “Cognitive 2012”. If you have troubles in using the Web submission, you can also submit your paper to or contact us. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.

Submitted manuscripts have to present the original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.

Paper Acceptance

Manuscripts should present the current research in the areas identified in the call for papers. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the fields and will be judged from the aspects of problem significance, contributions, originality, correctness, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers will be accepted with Regular Papers and Short Papers with maximal 8 pages and 4 pages in the final version respectively.

All accepted and presented papers, including the workshops’ papers, will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and are included in the IEEE Xplore database. They will be further arranged for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, should register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE Xplore and EI after the conference.
