International Workshop on GCRN


International Workshop on Green Cognitive Radio Networks Workshop (GCRN 2015) will be held in conjunction with CHINACOM 2012 in Shanghai, China, August 15-17, 2015. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the CHINACOM2015 conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore, and submitted to EI for indexing. Good accepted papers will be recommended to the SCI-indexed journal. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and technologists to present new ideas and contributions in the form of technical papers, panel discussions and tutorials of ideas in the field of Green Cognitive Radio Networks. The goal of this workshop is to bring together and disseminate the state of the art research contributions that address the various aspects of analysis, design, optimization, implementation, and application of green cognitive radio communications and networking technologies.
