Cognitive radio is a very popular topic at this software radio conference – there’s typically 20-30 papers directly on cognitive radio and everything else has a significant impact on cognitive radio implementation.

This is actually my favorite conference of the year because a) there’s a very good mix of commercial, defense, and academic publications and b) the numerous conference activities are conducive to longer discussions and I find I get the most substantive feedback on my research in the downtime between sessions at the SDR Forum than at any other conference.

In what I believe is a unique feature conferences, the SDR Forum includes a demonstration track.

I don’t know exactly what is meant by SDR 2.0 (was there an official 1.0 release? 1.1?), but then again I don’t really understand why the Web 2.0 label either.
