About CROWNCOM 2021

CROWNCOM 2021 aims at presenting new research results and perspectives of cognitive radio systems for 5G and beyond 5G networks, and will provide a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers and experts from academia, industry, standards, and policy.

Following the success of last edition, the main scope of CROWNCOM 2021 is on innovations and applications with the cognitive-based solutions in the context of 5G and beyond.

Cognitive Radio and Sharing mechanisms have been considered for sub 6GHz bands broadband systems mainly. Hotspot research topics on Cognitive Radio in various contexts include spectrum sharing, dynamic spectrum access, increased system flexibility through access to rich context information, virtualization and management, etc.

With the development of intelligent algorithms, the new 5G paradigm and its expected evolutions into 6G raised unprecedented expectations in terms of broadband services, latency and convergence of broadband systems with IoT networks.

In this context, CROWNCOM 2021 will encompass all research aspects related to 5G and beyond systems that may benefit from the introduction of cognitive mechanisms, including most recent innovations, trends, examples of state-of-the-art industrial deployments, contributions to standards and policies. Besides, to provide a forum for the world-class researchers to gather and share their research achievements and ideas, all papers related to communication signal processing, satellite communications and networking, aerial communications networking and protocols,  IoT and IoE, electronic countermeasures,  and artificial intelligence are solicited.

EAI CROWNCOM 2021 will be held by Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang City, capital of the Hebei Province. Shijiazhuang City is ‘National Advanced City of Science and Education’, with strong scientific and technological capability. Starting from 2020, 5G will be commercially available on a large scale, and the coverage of 5G networks in cities and hot spots will be improved, gradually extending to rural areas. In Shijiazhuang, there are 36 scenic areas of Class A and 33 demonstration sites for industrial and agricultural tourism. The people of Shijiazhuang welcome friends from all over the world.
