Call for Demonstrations - General Information

IEEE DySPAN 2012 will provide the opportunity to conduct live demonstrations of dynamic spectrum access systems. The event will offer an invaluable opportunity to demonstrate and interact with other world-leading researchers in the field of dynamic spectrum access. Apart from demonstrations performed by participating groups, IEEE DySPAN 2012 will create a unique opportunity to conduct experiments. These include (but are not limited to) spectral occupancy measurements and co-existence and system interaction measurements.

Call for Papers and Submission Requirements

To participate in the demonstration and experimentation activities, candidates shall complete the demonstration form to provide a description of the planned demonstration and/or experimentation. The proposals will be evaluated by the IEEE DySPAN 2012 demonstration committee based on the three criteria:
  • Technical Significance: how important and novel is the demonstration to the community.
  • Demonstration Maturity: how mature "to leave the lab" is the demonstration, and if RF transmissions is involved, are a priori or in situ risk mitigation measures to ensure regulatory compliance and coexistence with other spectrum users are included.
  • Demonstration Supportability: how the intended demonstration will fit to the IEEE DySPAN programme, and will it be possible to conduct such demonstration given regulatory and physical constraints.
Submission Requirements

While the submission details are being finalized, the general submission process will be as follows (please check back on this page for updates):

Prospective demonstration developers will be asked to submit a filled indetailed demonstration proposal form, as well as short paper describing to the general audience the purposes and functionalities of the developed demonstrator. The papers from accepted demonstrations will be included in the IEEE DySPAN 2012 proceedings and in the IEEE Xplore database. The accompanying short description papers (max. 2 pages in IEEE format) will be reviewed by selected Technical Programme Committee members of IEEE DySPAN to ensure quality and fairness. Review results will have influence on the final decision of the Demonstration Committee.

Demonstrations that are accepted to the conference have the requirement that at least one participant have a full conference registration.

Submission Process: Please direct any questions about the demonstration session or submissions to George Nychis <> and Przemyslaw Pawelczak <>.
