International Workshop on Smart Spectrum will be organized at IEEE WCNC 2017 in San Francisco, USA on March 19-22, 2017


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. IEEE WCNC 2017 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.
