4th IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2018)
(in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2018)

Special Session Workshop in Smart Spectrum Utilization
Based on Spectrum Measurements and Statistical Modeling

April 15-18, 2018, Barcelona, Spain



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 for an improved spectrum efficiency.

IEEE WCNC 2018 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.


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
- Advanced spectrum sensing techniques
- Advanced MAC layer protocol design


Authors should follow the WCNC submission guidelines available at
the conference website:


Papers should be submitted via the EDAS conference management system:


Paper submission: November 12, 2017 (extended - final deadline)
Notification of acceptance: December 15, 2017
Camera-ready submission: January 12, 2018
