Cognitive Radio

Call for Paper Cognitive Workshop
Cognitive Workshop 2013
The third workshop on Cognitive-Inspired Networks, Systems and Applications
Beijing, China, Oct 10 – 12, 2013
          
        

Cognitive-workshop 2013 continues to promote research works in this emerging area of cognitive-inspired computing, networks, systems, and applications. Cognitive radio networks include many challenging issues such as dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio network design and optimization, software-defined and flexible radio architectures, channel modeling, collaborative communications, cross layer design, routing method. More than these issues, cognitive computational modeling and theory from machines to human beings in the computer networks (e.g., expert systems, behavior recognitions, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling) are also in the scope of the workshop. It solicits high quality papers that illustrate novel cognitive methods, algorithms, theoretical analysis, modeling, research results, applications, projects, surveys and industrial experiences. It will serve as a forum for researchers to present and discuss the latest research results, novel cognitive techniques, concepts and analyses.

Authors of Cognitive-workshop 2013 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2013 and Big Data Summit. Both of the events are co-sponsored by a number of industry giants.

Authors are invited to submit original technical papers covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below:
• Cognitive modeling and architecture
• Spectrum and power optimization
• Cognitive networking and security
• Cognitive ad hoc network and vehicle networks
• Dynamic radio resource management / interference coordination
• Learning/training algorithms
• Cross-layer design for cognitive networking
• Self-organized networks
• Geographical-aware network, localization, security, and applications
• Cooperative radio resource management
• Multi-antenna / multi-link transmission
• Wideband, cooperative, and compressed spectrum sensing
• OFDM/FFT/Modulation
• Directional antenna design and networks
• Coding theory/data fusion/data aggregation

Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.

Paper Acceptance
Manuscripts should present the current research in the areas identified in the call for papers. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the fields and will be judged from the aspects of problem significance, contributions, originality, correctness, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers will be accepted with Regular Papers and Short Papers with maximal 8 pages and 4 pages in the final version respectively.     

Publications
All accepted and presented papers, including the workshops’ papers, will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database. They will further arranged for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, should register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE Xplore and EI after the conference.
