Cognitive 2014: The fourth workshop on Cognitive-Inspired Networks, Systems and Applications

Shanghai, China, October 10 - 12, 2014


Cognitive radio (CR) technologies have substantially improved the wireless communications performances, in a cost-effective way, by exploiting the underutilized licensed bands. However, there are several issues that still need to be addressed to take full advantages of the CR. Cognitive-workshop 2014 is to promote research works in the emerging cognitive-inspired fields to address the existing challenges including dynamic spectrum access, cognitive radio network design and optimization, software-defined and flexible radio architectures, multi-channel multi-user modeling, collaborative communications, cross layer design, routing method. In addition, cognitive computational modeling and theory from machines, e.g., expert systems, behavior recognitions, dynamical systems, and 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 2014 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2014 and Big Data Summit. Both of the events are co-sponsored by a several CR related industry companies.


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

· CR for satellite and deep-space communication 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 for CR

· Directional antenna design and networking for CR

· Asynchronous signal sensing in CR

· Cognitive channel / interference modeling

· Hardware prototypes for cognitive radio

· LPD/LPI/resiliency/routing/data security

· Policy based cognitive radio control for CR

· Dynamic systems and Bayesian modeling for CR

· Machine & human behavior recognitions and network data analysis

· Cognitive computational modeling and theory

· Expert systems for CR

Technical Program Committee

Shared with CyberC 2014



Authors are invited to submit original technical papers to by selecting “Cognitive 2014”.

Electronic submission to with title of "Cognitive 2014 Submission" is also accepted.

Please DO NOT submit both ways.


Manuscript Guidelines

All submitted manuscripts should be prepared as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). For more information please see Outgoing/proceedings/. 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.

Manuscript submission procedure is available over the Web at We encourage you to use EDAS online submission by selecting “Cognitive 2014”. If you have troubles in using the Web submission, you can also submit your paper to or contact us. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.

Submitted manuscripts have to present the original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.


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.



Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL. 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 after the conference.
