Jeff - CRT’s cofounder – started calling cognitive radio “the new MIMO” a few years ago because he thought that every conference was going to be shortly innudated with cognitive radio papers. Based on the last few days, I’ll say he’s right.
This morning, I received an email with a call for papers for ICST Qshine -the Fifth International ICST Conference on Heterogeneous Networking for Quality, Reliability, Security and Robustness. While workshop topics are still undecided, they’re explicitly requesting workshop proposals on cognitive radio and topics will likely be announced in February.
The conference will be held in Hong Kong from July 28-31, 2008 with papers are due March 10.
