Incorporation of learning/cognitive capabilities into networks is considered to be a major step towards efficient management of increasing complexity and heterogeneity. The term cognitive networks has a broad meaning and is used here to indicate networks able to sense their context of operation, analyze, reason and plan, make a decision, and act in accordance with the decision reached, while they learn from previous experience. Cognitive networks have the ability to think, learn, remember, and adapt to changing conditions in order to achieve end-to-end goals and objectives (e.g., optimization of the overall network behavior), thus being self-aware. In general, cognitive networks may be formed as a collection of cognitive entities, which incorporate intelligent functionality, have reasoning capabilities, are characterized by autonomy, social ability, learning from experience, and adaptivity, while they interact with other components and act in a reactive/proactive way to accomplish their goals.
The current trends reveal major activity not just in the cognitive radio area, but in other relevant fields towards the integration of different techniques for the realization of completely self-aware and self-adaptive communication systems. This Special Session aims presenting the latest developments and state of the art solutions on the highly contemporary field of Cognitive Networking.

Topics of interest include (not limited to):
- Self-adaptive/organizing/managing/aware networks
- Autonomous networks
- Cooperative networks
- Cognitive radio
- Spectrum management issues
- QoS and QoE provision in cognitive networks
- Energy efficiency in cognitive networks
- Heterogeneous cognitive networks
- MAC protocols for cognitive networks
- Routing schemes for cognitive networks
- Mobility management in cognitive networks
- Resource allocation in cognitive networks
- Sensing, reasoning, decision strategies, learning schemes and policies in cognitive networks
