Workshop on SCAN: Advances in Software Defined and Context‐Aware Cognitive Networks - Program

The 3rd IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on Advances in Software Defined and ContextAware Cognitive Networks 2018
(IEEE SCAN 2018) – An INFOCOM 2018 Workshop

Monday, 16 April 2018 ● 08:20 – 17:00 ● Room: Honolulu 2


Future 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 networks, dynamic adaptive services and applications are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services 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. 


Our aim is to promote the development of intelligent networks by creating intelligent framework, protocols and algorithms. The proposed INFOCOM workshop SCAN‐2018 will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government and industries to exchange ideas and present new results and provide future visions on the software defined and context‐aware cognitive networks.
