Call for Papers

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for 5G and beyond



The aim of CROWNCOM 2019 is to bring together researchers and experts from academia, industry, standards, and policy to present their new solutions of how cognitive radio systems will help deliver the required stringent requirements of future 5G and beyond 5G networks. Following the success of last edition, the main scope of this event is on new application domains for the cognitive-based solutions in the context of 5G and beyond. In particular we will concentrate on science and industry drivers such as machine learning and big data analysis in future wireless networks.

Various aspects originated form Cognitive Radio domain, such as dynamic spectrum access, increased system flexibility through access to rich context information, spectrum sharing, virtualization and management, have been considered for application in various context. The emergence of 5G raised unprecedented expectations in terms of broadband services, latency and convergence of broadband systems with IoT networks. In this context, CROWNCOM 2019 will encompass a large scope of research topic also covering IoT in 5G and how cognitive mechanisms shall help leveraging access for billions of devices ; mmWave and how specific propagation and operation in these bands bring new sharing mechanisms ; how resource allocation amongst bands (including offload mechanisms) shall be solved. The key focus will be on how can rich data analysis improve the delivery of above defined services.


CROWNCOM 2019 invites you to submit your research results and position papers on the following topics of interest, but not limited to:

  • Machine learning algorithms and solutions for 5G and beyond
  • Usage of Context Information in future wireless system
  • Spectrum and resource virtualization
