PE-CRN 2011

13 May 2011
Valencia, Spain

The Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Cognitive Radio Networks: from Theory to Reality PE-CRN 2011 is the 1st workshop focusing on the recent trend of Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) from a research topic to operational networks. This workshop is collocated with the Networking conference and sponsored by the IFIP Technical Committee on Communication Systems (TC6). The main objectives of PE-CRN 2011 are to bring together the state-of-the-art results on the performance of CRNs including both theoretical studies and test-bed experiments from both academia and industry, and to share experience in making CRNs from theory to reality

We invite original, previously unpublished research and experiment-oriented contributions in the area of CRNs. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Specific topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Modeling of dynamic spectrum access mechanisms
  • MAC protocols and performance evaluation of CRNs
  • Traffic patterns of primary users and secondary users in CRNs
  • Implementation aspects of CRNs
  • Performance of CRNs from test-beds and prototype networks
  • Spectrum utilization measurement and models
  • Spectrum sensing mechanisms
  • Radio resource management
  • QoS provisioning
  • Energy management
  • Business models and pricing
  • Policy and regulatory aspects
  • Standardization
