CALL FOR PAPERS
First International Workshop on “Cognitive Radios and Networks for Spectrum Coexistence of Satellite and Terrestrial Systems” (CogRaN-Sat)

https://sites.google.com/site/cogransat2015/

https://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=18661&track=66249

In conjunction with the IEEE ICC 2015, 8-12 June 2015, London, UK

Aims and Scope
Cognitive radio systems pose some of the most important challenges in the ICT world in terms of tackling spectrum scarcity and enabling ubiquitous broadband access. Although their application in terrestrial context has been studied in depth in the last years, their applications in satellite or hybrid satellite/terrestrial environments is still largely unexplored due to technical and regulatory issues. More specifically, in the technical domain, the wide coverage areas enabled through satellite communications limit the flexibility of spatially reusing the spectrum in conjunction with terrestrial systems. Furthermore, from a regulatory perspective, the heterogeneous adoption of terrestrial spectrum directives by national authorities complicates the coexistence of terrestrial deployments with internationally operating satellite systems. In this direction, a holistic techno-regulatory approach is needed in order to set the foundations for engineering and deploying cognitive syst!
ems that enable the coexistence of satellite and terrestrial services.
The First International Workshop on “Cognitive Radios and Networks for Spectrum Coexistence of Satellite and Terrestrial Systems” (CogRaN-Sat) will be held in conjunction with IEEE ICC 2015. CogRaN-Sat provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present their latest research findings in cognitive radio and networking technologies with a particular attention to satellite communications.
In this workshop, we explore fundamental questions regarding the modern approach to cognitive radio networks, taking into account the advantages of modern communication systems and architectures.

Areas of Interest
The areas of interest for the Workshop on “Cognitive Radios and Networks for Spectrum Coexistence of Satellite and Terrestrial Systems” (CogRaN-Sat) include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Spectrum awareness techniques such as sensing and databases
* Cognitive Radio Reconfiguration techniques
* Spectrum management policy and strategy for cognitive networks
* Cognitive MAC protocols
* Hybrid Satellite Communications
* Heterogeneous networking
* Software Defined Cognitive Radio Platforms
* Cognitive Communication Security
* MAC/Network protocols
* Physical layer techniques
* Data base systems
* Dynamic Carrier Allocation techniques
* Cognitive Beamforming techniques
* Localization techniques
* Regulatory aspects
* Standardization aspects
* Demo and field trials
The purpose of this workshop is to stimulate the study of new solutions for cognitive radio techniques in satellite environments.

Submission Guidelines
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers—up to 6 pages of length, using the EDAS link: https://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=18661&track=66249.
All papers selected for publication will included in the IEEE ICC 2015 proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore/IEEE Digital Library.

Important Dates
Paper Submission Deadline: 31 January 2015 (FINAL)
Paper Acceptance Notification: 14 February 2015
Camera-ready Paper Submissions: 28 February 2015
Workshop: 8 or 12 June 2015 (TBD)
