(link) The International Symposium on Wireless and Pervasive Computing has issued a call for papers. Related topics include cognitive radio and cooperative communications. It’ll be held from Feb 11-13, 2009 in Melbourne, Australia. Papers are due October 12.

(link) The schedule for the next SDRF meeting / workshop is now posted. The focus of the workshop is “Government and Industry R&D Agendas for Next Generation Radio Technologies” (read as cognitive radio) and Bill Lehr (MIT) will give a talk on “Building the Ecosystem for Commercial Cognitive Radio”. Interestingly, the agenda page (pdf) lists meeting times for a white space task group. (Other than an agreement that it would be a good idea, it hasn’t actually gotten off the ground yet.)

(link) White Space Tests at the DNC and RNC conventions?

(link) The WaPo has a nice article (from yesterday) overviewing the current round of testing. Interestingly, only the Motorola device is aided by geolocation – something I expect to eventually be a requirement. (The WaPo sometimes requires a login, if you’re asked for one, try these.)
