There has been a huge surge in wireless technology deployment over the past decade, which has led to the crowding of existing spectrum. In order to address the resulting congestion and shortfall in projected spectrum availability vs. spectrum need, Cognitive Radio (CR) has been envisioned in the context of 5G networks. CR might increase the efficiency of spectrum utilization in 5G through, e.g., opportunistic spectrum access, and might improve the management, performance and coexistence of heterogeneous networks and devices using diverse radio access technologies.

 

CRAFT 2015 aims to gather and promote discussion among researchers, industrialists and other stakeholders, the purpose being to inspire the analysis and development of CR solutions for 5G networks and to realise sufficient spectrum for 5G. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: CR for opportunistic spectrum access and sharing in 5G; cognitive networks for 5G; advanced flexible spectrum access techniques; applications for CR in 5G; spectrum and context awareness for CR in 5G; cognitive carrier aggregation aspects and advanced management of coexisting networks; regulatory solutions of efficient spectrum sharing in 5G, including database-driven approaches.
