*IEEE DySPAN 2017*
6-9 March 2017
Baltimore, MD, USA

Since its first edition in 2005, IEEE DySPAN has grown to become the
flagship international conference that addresses innovative approaches to
radio spectrum access and management.  The unique blend of technology and
policy topics, focusing on the development, deployment, and regulation of
dynamic spectrum access networks, as well as special efforts to bring the
policy and technology communities together in a single event, are
trademarks of IEEE DySPAN that have led to significant insights and broader
impact on the field.

For 2017, IEEE DySPAN comes back where it all began - Baltimore, Maryland,
USA.  The conference promises to bring an exciting research program and
unique forum for practitioners, researchers, and policymakers.  The setting
will provide cultural experiences, restaurants to satisfy every palate,
family-friendly museums, and exciting nightlife.


IEEE DySPAN 2017 will be based on two main tracks, technical and policy,
and two accompanying tracks, demonstration and posters. All papers will
follow a double-blind review process. Accepted papers will be captured in
the conference proceedings and IEEE eXplore.


The Technology Program Committee invites papers on the following topics:

   - Dynamic spectrum access for extremely high-frequency (mmWave) spectrum
   - Spectrum management for the Internet of Things
   - Licensed Shared Access and secondary use of government spectrum bands
   - Pricing and access rules for secondary spectrum
   - RF energy harvesting in dynamic spectrum access regimes
   - Low-power dynamic spectrum access
   - Long-term experimental results of dynamic spectrum access systems
   - Robust simulation methods and validation models of dynamic spectrum
   access systems
   - Dynamic spectrum access for underserved regions

The Policy Program Committee invites papers that can help inform policy
makers on topics of current interest, including:

   - With the rapid evolution of 4G and emergence of 5G systems, regulatory
   agencies might have difficulty keeping up with technological change. Given
   the speed of technological change, what are the opportunities and
   challenges associated with market and regulatory approaches to spectrum
   allocation, spectrum management, and/or spectrum sharing?
   - What particular spectrum management policies and tools are needed by
   and appropriate for planning or implementing emerging 5G systems? Are the
   particular challenges and/or opportunities associated with implementing 5G
   in particular spectrum bands?
   - As spectrum sharing moves from theory to practice, how do we address
   the challenges of monitoring, enforcing, and implementing of spectrum
   access systems and policies?
   - Many of the practical spectrum sharing systems involve commercial
   sharing of government spectrum (in the US).  What frameworks are
   appropriate for bidirectional sharing (i.e., government access to
   commercial spectrum bands?  What are the opportunities and challenges?
   - One of the foundations of spectrum policy is to foster more efficient
   use of spectrum.  How can efficiency be defined and measured to enable
   policymakers to benchmark their progress toward this goal?
   - What are the opportunities and challenges of first responder
   communications or public safety mobile broadband (e.g. FirstNet) deployment
   (a major US based policy initiative for first responder communications)?
   - What are the challenges related to making spectrum sharing both
   spectrally and economically efficient?

*Paper Submission Format:*

Authors will need to following IEEE conference style papers. Details about
the format can be found here:

Technical and policy paper should not exceed 8 pages, while demo and poster
papers should not exceed 2 pages.

To submit your paper: link to EDAS to be provided.

Review Process (Technical, Policy, Demo and Poster Papers):

For the first time in IEEE DySPAN history, papers submitted to
IEEE DySPAN 2017 will follow a *double-blind review process*. This means
that authors of the submitted papers will need to remove all information
revealing their identity (this includes author names, affiliations, and
references to sponsoring agencies).

Also, for the first time in IEEE DySPAN history, an opportunity will be
given to the authors to respond to reviewer comments before the technical
program committee will make a final decision regarding acceptance.

*Important Dates*

*Paper submission deadline*: October 1, 2016
*Rebuttal phase*: December 12-14, 2016
*Notification of acceptance*: January 15, 2017
