IEEE DySPAN 2014 Demonstration Track
Similar to IEEE DySPAN in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2012 IEEE DySPAN 2014 will provide the opportunity to conduct live demonstrations of dynamic spectrum systems. The event will offer an invaluable opportunity to demonstrate and interact with other world-leading researchers in the field of dynamic spectrum access.  Apart from demonstrations performed by participating groups, IEEE DySPAN 2014 will create a unique opportunity to conduct experiments. These include (but are not limited to) spectral occupancy measurements, and co-existence and system interaction measurements.
To participate in the demonstration and experimentation activities, candidates shall complete the demonstration form to provide a description of the planned demonstration and/or experimentation. The IEEE DySPAN 2014 Demonstration Committee will evaluate the proposals based on the three criteria:
  • Technical Significance: how important and novel is the demonstration to the community.
  • Demonstration Maturity: the demonstration must be mature enough “to leave the lab.” Demonstrations involving RF transmissions must include a priori or in situ risk mitigation measures to ensure regulatory compliance and coexistence with other spectrum users.
  • Demonstration Supportability: how the intended demonstration will fit to the IEEE DySPAN program, and will it be possible to conduct such demonstration given regulatory and physical constraints, e.g., space and time span.
All proposal submissions shall attach a maximum 2-page paper, which describes to the general audience the purposes and functionalities of the developed demonstration. Papers from accepted demonstrations will be included in the IEEE DySPAN 2014 proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore database. External reviewers appointed to the IEEE DySPAN 2014 Demonstration Track will review the accompanying 2-page description papers to ensure quality and fairness. Review results will have influence on the final decision of the Demonstration Committee. Visit to submit a paper.
Best Demo Award
During IEEE DySPAN 2014, a Best Demo Award will be given to the best university team and best industry team participating in the Demonstration Track. All demos will be evaluated based on visitors’ votes (gathered during the conference) and the Award Committee, which will be introduced during the conference venue.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE DySPAN 2014 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.  Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE DySPAN 2014 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
