WS-10: Advances in Software Defined and Context Aware Cognitive Networks (SCAN)
Organizer: Danda B. Rawat (Georgia Southern University, USA) and Jaime Lloret Mauri (Universitat Politècnica València, Spain)
Future generation wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically based on their operating situation. With the emergence of Software Defined Networks (SDN), context awareness and dynamic adaptive services and application are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, services, and applications to user's context change. In addition, context awareness, with the help of software defined and cognitive systems, allows customization of operating parameters of devices, users, applications, and networks based on the current context. The IEEE SCAN-2015 serves as a forum for researchers from academia, government and industries to exchange ideas, present new results and provide future visions on these topics.
