4th IEEE International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2018) will be held as Special Session Workshop “Smart Spectrum Utilization Based on Spectrum Measurement and Statistical Modeling” in IEEE WCNC 2018, Barcelona, Spain, on April 15-18, 2018


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 for an improved spectrum efficiency.

IEEE WCNC 2018 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. The technical discussion will be focused on wireless network technology based on spectrum measurements, spectrum utilization modeling, and their applications for dynamic spectrum access.
