IEEE International Symposium on Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks
13–16 May 2024 // Washington, DC

Call for workshop proposals

Call for workshop proposals

The IEEE DySPAN 2024, to be held on May 13-16 2024 in Washington DC, USA, will be a confluence of electromagnetic spectrum enthusiasts from academia, industry and government working on both technical and policy issues in dynamic spectrum access for active and passive users. In addition to the main conference technical program, DySPAN will include a set of half or full day workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present novel early research results on these topics. While we expect that workshop papers would be less mature than a DySPAN conference paper, they should present particularly novel ideas and approaches, which have the potential to make their way to full conference papers in future editions. Therefore, we expect that workshops will run a rigorous review process, to make sure programs will be of high quality.

Teams with cross-disciplinary backgrounds like wireless communications, radio astronomy, remote sensing, circuits, atmospheric sciences, etc. are particularly encouraged to submit a workshop proposal.

Acceptance rates and workshop formats will be adjusted based on the set of submitted and accepted papers. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will be due on January 3, 2024 (Firm), with notifications of acceptance due on February 14 and the camera-ready version due on February 29.

The workshop proposal should provide the following information in a single pdf document:


1. Title of the workshop
2. Names and affiliations of the organization team

INTRODUCTION (200 words):

3. Scope and topics of the workshop and how it is related to DySPAN

RATIONALE (500 words):

    e. Why the workshop differs from others; i.e., related workshops and conferences of similar topic;


5. Tentative committee lists (organizers, technical program committee, etc.)
6. A draft workshop format planned (keynote, papers, demos, panels, etc.)
