Regulatory and Technological Requirements for Cognitive Radio

T 009, 28/09/2010 (11:00-12:30)

This networking session, organized by COST IC0905 TERRA and EU FP7 EUWB projects, will address regulatory stakes, socio-economic aspects, business models, technological opportunities and commercialization showstoppers of cognitive radio technologies.

Cognitive radio (CR) has the potential to become an important breakthrough in the wireless field, yet the legal and regulatory aspects concerning its introduction are far from resolved. The session will review global CR standards and issues such as deployment, co-existence with incumbent services, and the economic aspects of its regulation. The latest CR-related R&D activities (such as FP7 projects EUWB, QosMOS, CogEU, QUASAR, FARAMIR and COST Action IC0902) will be showcased and future R&D challenges for cognitive radio technologies discussed. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of multi-domain research issues required for CR development and to facilitate wider participation in new research opportunities offered by FP7 calls.

This session is quite important in order to drive the regulatory aspects related to cognitive radios. This would also allow the European bodies to lead such regulatory aspects in this field and join the forces of all the cognitive radio related EU projects.

This is a rare chance to have, in the same place, the EU projects that are currently playing an important role in

the context of cognitive radio. Gathering all the main findings and experience from such projects will help

to better focus on fundamental aspects such as standardization, deployment, regulation and future research activities.

As an attendee from Canada and a research manager

(CRC/Ottawa), I look forward to discussing the leading steps that are being by the EU in developing a cognitive radio regulatory framework. The move to ubiquitous, broadband mobile, smart cities, 4G/5G etc. is going to put an unprecedented demand on radio spectrum....a demand which CR has the potential of satisfying.

Great session! Registered to attend it.

Great Idea for s Session as there is still a lot of uncertainty in this area of R&D as well as Regulation.

If you would like to share your project or your knowledge on the topics, please send a declaration of intent to the session coordinator, Arturas MEDEISIS or me ( You will be asked to send a draft presentation

(no more than 2 slides) to the session coordinator before the session). Thank you
