2nd International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS)
in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2016

April 3, 2016, Doha, Qatar



An essential feature of future wireless communications is efficient,
flexible and dynamic spectrum utilization. A wireless network taking
advantage of spectrum measurements is a new, promising approach among
conventional dynamic spectrum access techniques capable of delivering
such smart spectrum utilization. By analyzing real world spectrum
utilization, it is possible to obtain information on the actual
spectrum usage statistics which can be used to develop spectrum usage
models that can enhance the performance of estimating and predicting
the spectrum status, as well as improving spectrum resource management,
sharing and allocation.

IEEE WCNC 2016 International Workshop on Smart Spectrum aims to bring
together researchers, industry practitioners as well as members of
standardization bodies and government to meet and exchange ideas on
recent research and future directions for smart spectrum utilization.
The technical discussion will be focused on wireless network technology
based on spectrum measurements, spectrum utilization modeling, and their
applications for dynamic spectrum access.

Best papers will be included (in extended version) in a journal
special issue to be published by Hindawi in the Mobile Information
Systems journal (“Special Issue on Smart Spectrum Technologies for
Mobile Information Systems”) in July 2016 (tentative).


The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Spectrum measurement techniques (wideband, long term, and wide
area measurements)
- Spectrum measurement campaigns and system prototyping
- Sensor networks for spectrum measurement
- Spectrum utilization database techniques
- Multidimensional spectrum utilization models
- Statistical modeling of radio environment
- Radio propagation modeling for spectrum sharing
- Cognitive radio networks and dynamic spectrum access
- Spectrum sensing techniques based on statistical modeling
- MAC layer access protocol design based on statistical modeling


Authors should follow the WCNC submission guidelines available at
when preparing their contributions. Maximum paper length is 6 pages
including figures, tables and references.
Papers should be submitted via EDAS conference management system:
