[DMANET] CFP: IEEE SDRANCAN-2015 with IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, San Diego, CA, USA, Dec 6 - 10, 2015.


*IEEE International Workshop on Advances in Software Defined Radio Access
Networks and Context-aware Cognitive Networks 2015 (IEEE SDRANCAN-2015)*
in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, San Diego, CA, USA, Dec 6 - 10,

Future generation wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how
they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered
automatically based on their operating situations. With the emergence of
Software Defined Access Networks and Context-Aware Cognitive Networks
(SDRANCAN), wireless users could get seamless wireless connectivity and
services regardless of the frequency bands that they are using as a
backhaul. Context-Aware cognitive networks provides dynamic adaptive
services and applications for wireless users through automatic
configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services based
on the users? contexts. We believe that this workshop is important for
future wireless networks and will help to bridge the gap between
traditional wireless networks and future wireless networks through both
software defined access networks and context-aware cognitive networks.

SDRANCAN-2015 will serve as a forum for researchers from academia,
government and industries to exchange ideas, present new results and
provide future visions on these topics. Original technical papers on the
advances in Software Defined Access Networks and Context-Aware Cognitive
Networks as well as those that describe practical deployment and
implementation experiences are solicited for presentation and publication.


Topics of interest include but not limited to:

Fundamental limits
Network architecture
Wireless virtualization
Network virtualization
Software defined networks
Cloud-based and/or wired infrastructure
Cognitive vehicular ad hoc networks
Network visualization
Secrecy capacity and rate-equivocation of wireless channels.
Admission control in heterogeneous networks
Security and Network coding
Storage and processing
Smart protocols
Case studies and testbeds
Cognitive and context aware cyber physical systems
Mobile and vehicular networks
Data dissemination techniques in context-aware systems

The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers. All
submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six
(6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring
additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over-length page
charge if accepted)
