6th IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2020)


Over the last years, wireless communication networks have faced ever-increasing traffic demands beyond the available capacity, a problem that is expected to worsen in the foreseeable future with the requirement for high data-rate, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) services and the advent of a myriad of machine-type devices interconnected through the Internet of Things (IoT) for massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC). In order to cope with the forecasted traffic loads, an essential requirement for future wireless communication systems is efficient, flexible and dynamic spectrum utilization. Smart spectrum exploitation techniques have been developed for WRANs in TV white spaces, LTE-LAA mobile networks in ISM bands, CBRS radar systems, and cognitive satellite communications, to mention just a few examples. Spectrum sharing and on-demand spectrum assignment are very hot topics for innovative and sustainable future wireless world and continues to be an active field of research in the academic and industrial communities as well as in spectrum regulation.

The 6th edition of the IEEE WCNC International Workshop on Smart Spectrum (IWSS 2020) aims to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners as well as members of standardization bodies and government to meet and exchange ideas on research about smart spectrum for This workshop aims to stimulate discussion and generation of innovative ideas for smart spectrum exploitation.
