The 2024 IEEE DySPAN Workshop on “Signal Reuse for Spectrum Efficiency” will be held on Monday, May 13, 2024 in Washington, DC, USA. This workshop aims to explore improved spectral efficiency through the reuse of signals, especially when combined with dynamic access. The integration of communication and sensing signals, for instance, has the potential to provide advanced location and application-aware services with virtually no additional spectrum usage. Other examples include signals that integrate communications and wireless power transfer and signals that integrate communications and control. While integrated sensing and communication (ISAC) has drawn significant interest from the research community, many major technical challenges remain, as do opportunities for inventive new applications and new multifunction waveforms. These new types of waveforms, co-designed to support multiple functions, will raise interesting policy questions, as well.
Topics of interest in this workshop range from fundamental physical and information theoretic limits, design and integration of multi-function waveforms with dynamic spectrum access, to secure spectrum sharing and relevant policy considerations.
This workshop will be featured by a keynote to be given by Dr. Tom Rondeau, Principal Director for FutureG & 5G, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, U.S. Department of Defense.
