Cognitive Radio (CR) is emerging as one of the key technologies to
solve the problem of spectrum scarcity faced by current wireless
systems. A CR network aims to support highly reconfigurable devices
that are capable of sensing the current environment, and adapting the
transmission parameters to the specific scenarios, also based on the
Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of the applications.
The potential deployment of CR networks has been further augmented
through various standardization activities supported by the IEEE
(e.g. IEEE 802.22, IEEE 802.16h, IEEE 802.11y), and directives of
spectrum regulatory agencies (e.g. the FCC in US).
These efforts have opened portions of the spectrum for opportunistic
spectrum access and laid down rules for sharing the spectrum so that
general purpose networks as well as communication in critical
scenarios, like vehicular networks, public safety networks, emergency
networks are supported.
However, to fully realize the potential of CR networks, there is a
need to draw the attention of the research community for developing
advanced, context-based and innovative methodologies, techniques and
algorithms possibly inspired by multi-disciplinary research fields,
including current results from inter-disciplinary research (e.g.
machine learning, game theory, evolutionary & bio-inspired computing,
complex adaptive systems and exascale networks, cooperative systems,
opportunistic networks, etc.)

The objective of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and
researchers from both academia and industry in order to have a forum
for discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in
both the methodological and algorithmic aspects and the novel
applications of cognitive radio networking .
In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in
topics of interest including, but not limited to, the following:

- Algorithms and protocols for self-configuring CR networks
- Centralized/Distributed algorithms for CR network management
- Centralized/Distributed algorithms for Radio Resource Management in
CR networks
- Cooperative and non-cooperative techniques for spectrum management
and access
- CR enhanced vehicular networks
- CR for emergency and public safety applications
- CR for wireless medical networks
- CR implementations and test-beds
- CR in whitespaces and LTE networks
- CR networks for smart grid applications
- CR for Internet of Things and smart spaces
- Cognitive Machine-to-machine (CM2M) communication
- Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) and Management in vehicular environments
- Emergent behavior of CR systems
- Environmental and context-based factors exploitation in CR systems
- Game theoretical analysis of CR networks
- Multi-disciplinary approaches and solutions for novel CR methodologies
- Machine learning techniques for CR networks
- Mobile Cognitive Radio Ad Hoc Networks
- Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of CR technologies and CR networks
- New paradigms for CR systems
- Novel Applications of CR technology
- Protocol stack adaptation and Cross-layering in CR systems
- Security and safety aspects of CR systems
- Space-Time spectrum information sharing and RF DB integration in CR systems
- Spectrum sensing and spectrum sharing techniques
- Swarm Intelligence and biological-inspired networking for CR networks

Paper Registration Deadline: February 20, 2013 (mandatory)
Paper Submission Deadline: February 28, 2013
Notification Deadline: March 25, 2013
Camera Ready Due: April 8, 2013
Workshop Date: June 4, 2013

Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently
under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited
to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to
the template format. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are
available at:

The paper submission is now open on EDAS:

Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by
IEEE. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital
Library (IEEEXplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM.
Acceptance rate in the first (2012) edition was 30%.
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and
present his/her work at the workshop. There will be no separate
registration for workshop, but one single registration will cover both
conference and workshops participation.
For the registration fees and payments, please read the instructions
contained at the WoWMoM 2013 Webpage.

IEEE TCSIM will sponsor the IEEE CORAL 2013 Best Student Paper Award!

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for journal
publication on a fast track issue of the Elsevier's Pervasive and
Mobile Computing (PMC) Journal (IF 2012: 1.250).
