Future generation wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically based on their operating situations. With the emergence of Software Defined Access Networks and Context-Aware Cognitive Networks (SDRANCAN), wireless users could get seamless wireless connectivity and services regardless of the frequency bands that they are using as a backhaul. Context-Aware cognitive networks  provides dynamic adaptive services and applications for wireless users through automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services based on the users’ contexts. We believe that this workshop is important for future wireless networks and will help to bridge the gap between traditional wireless networks and future wireless networks through both software defined access networks and context-aware cognitive networks. 

SDRANCAN-2015 will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government and industries to exchange ideas, present new results and provide future visions on these topics. Original technical papers on the advances in Software Defined Access Networks and Context-Aware Cognitive Networks as well as those that describe practical deployment and implementation experiences are solicited for presentation and publication. 

Topics of interest include but not limited to: 
  • Fundamental limits 
  • Network architecture
  • Wireless virtualization 
  • Network virtualization  
  • Network visualization 
  • Cloud-RAN
  • Software defined networks 
  • Cloud-based and/or wired infrastructure  
  • Cognitive vehicular ad hoc networks
  • Secrecy capacity and rate-equivocation of wireless channels.
  • Admission control in heterogeneous networks 
  • Security and Network coding
