The workshop is intended for researchers, policy makers, and industry professionals working in the area of white space and cognitive radio network. The discussions will provide exposure to the physical layer modeling and MAC layer developments within the cognitive radio or the TV white space paradigm. The workshop will cover some fundamental as well as practical aspects of these networks.
The program consists of one overview talk, five tutorials, two industry talks, and a panel discussion on TV white space and cognitive radios. The tutorials consist of topics such as spectrum sensing and cooperative communication, control channel design issues in cognitive radio networks, medium access and QoS for secondary cognitive networks, white space enabled rural broadband, cognitive M2M, and capacity limits of interference channels in cognitive radio networks.
