Workshop Program Advances in Software Defined and Context Aware Cognitive Radio Networks

IEEE International Workshop on Advances in Software Defined and Context Aware Cognitive Radio Networks (IEEE SCAN-2017)
Monday, 1 May 2017 ● 08:45 – 17:30 ● Room: Georgia 8
Future 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 systems, dynamic adaptive services and applications are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services to user's context change. This workshop aims to provide a platform to promote the development of intelligent networks by creating intelligent framework, protocols and algorithms where researchers from academia, government and industries exchange ideas and present new results and provide future visions on the software defined and context‐aware cognitive networks.
