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

This is a call for proposals to demonstrate systems, prototypes, critical
technology components and algorithms at IEEE DySPAN 2017, which will be
held in Baltimore, MD, USA, 6 – 9 March 2017.

Similar to IEEE DySPAN in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015,
IEEE DySPAN 2017 will provide the opportunity to conduct live
demonstrations of dynamic spectrum systems. The event will offer an
invaluable opportunity to demonstrate and interact with other world-leading
researchers in the field of dynamic spectrum access.

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 IEEE DySPAN 2017
Demonstration Committee will evaluate the proposals based on the three
- Technical Significance: how important and novel is the demonstration to
the community.
- Demonstration Maturity: the demonstration must be mature enough “to leave
the lab.” Demonstrations involving RF transmissions must include a priori
or in situ risk mitigation measures to ensure regulatory compliance and
coexistence with other spectrum users.
- Demonstration Supportability: how the intended demonstration will fit to
the IEEE DySPAN program, and will it be possible to conduct such
demonstration given regulatory and physical constraints, e.g., space and
time span.

All proposal submissions shall attach a maximum 2-page paper, which
describes to the general audience the purposes and functionalities of the
developed demonstrator. Papers from accepted demonstrations will be
included in the IEEE DySPAN 2017 proceedings and included in the IEEE
Xplore database. External reviewers appointed to IEEE DySPAN 2017
Demonstration Track will review the accompanying 2-page description papers
to ensure quality and fairness. Review results will have influence on the
final decision of the Demonstration Committee. Visit to
submit a paper.

During IEEE DySPAN 2017, a Best Demo Award will be given to the best
university team and best industry team participating in the Demonstration
Track. All demos will be evaluated based on visitors’ votes (gathered
during the conference) and the Award Committee, which will be introduced
during the conference venue.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE DySPAN 2017 Conference Proceedings
and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register
for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper
must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the
TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance
of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.
Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final
IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  For authors with
multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3
papers.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE DySPAN
2017 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

*Important Dates*

*17 December 2016*: Complete proposal form (submit directly to IEEE DySPAN
demo Chairs) and 2-page demonstration paper (submit to )
*15 January 2017*: Notification of demonstration proposal acceptance

*Regulations and Transportation*

Regulatory licenses will be negotiated and procured by the demonstration
committee based on submitted system capabilities. It is therefore necessary
to have knowledge of all possible frequency ranges a device is capable of
using, as certain frequencies are restricted for experimental use in
Sweden. It is the responsibility of each demonstration participant to
secure shipping and handling of their equipment to and from the
demonstration site.

*Other points to take note*

Moving large amounts of electronics through an airport (especially customs)
is going to take time. Consider using airfreight for transferring
equipment. Otherwise, prepare well in advance and be sure to have all
supporting documentation on hand.
It is also advised that participants consider insurance for any hardware
during the symposium and shipping process.
