WS-16: Cooperative and Cognitive Networks (CoCoNet)
Organizer: Frank Fitzek (TU Dresden, Germany) Marcos Katz (University of Oulu, Finland) Qi Zhang (Aarhus University, Denmark)
The scope of the CoCoNet7 workshop is to bring together a highly qualified group of people with interest in cooperative and cognitive wireless networks. Cooperation has been identified as one of the underlying principles for future wireless communication systems. Cooperation, altruistic or non-altruistic, is the basis to break up the cellular concept and enrich it by multi hop, peer-to-peer, or cloud functionalities. The workshop will highlight the newest trends in this emerging area, complementing it with first practical implementations and demonstrations in this field. New technologies and concepts such as network coding and mobile clouds are the driving forces for cooperative and cognitive networks. Besides the technical insights, the CoCoNet workshop will serve as an active discussing and networking forum for participants. The workshop organises papers for oral presentations and papers which will be presented in poster sessions possibly accompanied with demonstrations or test-beds.
