Cognitive computing and networking are among the fast emerging areas is modern computer communications. Dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio, and cognitive networking are among the areas of focus under cognitive computing and networking. Fast growing wireless network traffic will soon result in an increased spectrum scarcity in certain popular bands of the wireless spectrum. On the other hand, large fractions of spectral bands are underutilized or tied under high regulations resulting in very low usage. Emerging solutions in cognitive radios and dynamic spectrum access work towards effective spectrum sharing between primary and secondary users. Measuring, sharing, billing, and opportunistically utilizing available spectrum are critical needs of future cognitive radios. Commercial cognitive radios are still a few years away. Meanwhile, applying cognition across the entire protocol stack is taking the cognitive networking in an alternate, yet important, direction. Models of protocol stacks that employ graphical models have been under active research. The current state of technology reveals the infancy of cognitive networking as evidenced by the recent prototype test beds. Policy decisions, standardization processes, industry agreements are important in realizing effective solutions for cognitive computing and networking. Therefore, cognitive communications and networking is one of the key areas of research activity in communication networking in the future decade. In addition to the civilian communications, tactical communications find cognitive radios useful for operation in net-centric warfare with an additional benefit, detection evasion in hostile environments. ICNC’15 also invites research articles on the area of tactical cognitive communications and networking.
