CALL FOR PAPERS

5th IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2019)

(in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2019)

April 15, 2019, Marrakech, Morocco

AIMS AND SCOPE

—————————–

Over the last several years, wireless communication networks have faced

ever-increasing traffic demands beyond the available capacity, a problem

that is expected to worsen in the foreseeable future with the requirement

for high data-rate, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) services and the

advent of a myriad of machine-type devices interconnected through the

Internet of Things (IoT) for massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).

In order to cope with the forecasted traffic loads, an essential requirement

for future wireless communication systems beyond 5G is efficient, flexible

and dynamic spectrum utilization. Smart spectrum exploitation techniques

have been developed for WRANs in TV white spaces, LTE-LAA mobile networks

in ISM bands, CBRS radar systems, and cognitive satellite communications,

to mention just a few examples. Innovative approaches to spectrum sharing

and on-demand spectrum assignment are very hot topics for innovative and

sustainable future wireless world and continue to comprise an active field

of research in the academic and industrial communities as well as in

spectrum regulation

The 5th edition of the IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum

aims to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners as

well as members of standardization bodies and government to meet and exchange

ideas on research about smart spectrum for a sustainable future wireless

world. This workshop aims to stimulate discussion and generation of innovative

ideas for smart spectrum exploitation.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

———————————

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

– Smart spectrum solutions for eMBB and mMTC/IoT in 5G networks.

– Carrier aggregation and spectrum sharing for both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum.

– Spectrum sensing, statistical modeling and field measurements.

– Radio propagation modelling for spectrum sharing.

– Sensor networks for smart spectrum awareness.

– Interference management and avoidance techniques.

– PHY/MAC layer techniques for enhanced spectrum exploitation (MIMO, full-duplex, NOMA, etc.).

– Machine learning, deep learning and other AI techniques for smart spectrum.

– Practical applications and use cases of smart spectrum exploitation in modern systems.

– Field experiments and practical/prototype implementations.

– Regulatory framework and activities for smart spectrum exploitation.
