Applications of Cognitive Radio Networks: Recent Advances and Future Directions

Call for Papers

The demand of spectrum increased tremendously due to the recent advancements in wireless communication technology. This dramatic requirement of spectrum has challenged the current spectrum licensing system and inspired authorities to legalize opportunistic spectrum access. Recently, many authorities, researchers, and hardware manufacturers are working to solve this virtual scarcity issue. Cognitive radio (CR) networks are suitable in this mitigation, by utilizing licensed spectrum opportunistically. CR is rapidly proliferating into many wireless communication fields. Spectrum sensing, spectrum sharing, coexistence, spread spectrum, and MIMO techniques have become areas of concern over the past decade. More recently, many researchers are working in various application areas of cognitive radio networks (CRNs) and cognitive radio wireless sensor networks (CR-WSNs).
This special issue is mainly focused on recent advances and future direction with respect to applications of CRNs. More specifically, it is expected that the contribution of original works proposes new directions in CRNs. The submissions are intended to cover a variety of applications.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Novel applications of CRNs
  • Cognitive radio for emergency and public safety applications
  • Cognitive radio applications in healthcare
  • Learning techniques and strategies in CRNs
  • Cognitive radio in cloud computing
  • Application of cognitive radio wireless sensor networks
  • Performance analysis of a wireless sensor network-aided cognitive radio system
  • Node mobility issue in CRNs
  • Multioperator spectrum management for specific application
  • Business models for opportunistic spectrum access
  • Commercialization of CRNs and their applications
  • Standardization of CRNs and their applications
  • Regulatory aspects of CRNs and their applications
  • Green cognitive radio networks
