IEEE DySPAN symposium to explore next-gen wireless systems

September 9, 2008

The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) will host the International Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN) symposium Oct. 14-17, in Chicago, at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel.

Since its launch in 2005, DySPAN has emerged as a pre-eminent event for expanding the understanding of complex next-generation wireless systems and the efficient use of the RF spectrum. This includes the advancement of cutting-edge technical and multidisciplinary research as well as the practical applications related to commercial smart radio system technologies.

This year, more than 300 economists, engineers, network architects, researchers and scholars from the United States, Europe and Asia are expected to discuss the decentralized access of the radio spectrum, its operation in wider bandwidths and the ability to process large amounts of information while making intelligent decisions. The event also will highlight the ways in which international regulators can capitalize on these advances to increase spectrum use and foster future wireless communications and networks.
