The IEEE Symposium on New Frontiers in Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN)—a conference dedicated to the dynamic expansion of the global RF spectrum—plans to host hundreds of scientists, industry professionals and government officials in Singapore, April 6-9, as they discuss the commercialization and advance of next-generation smart radio system technologies.

“With the ever-growing popularity of wireless communications, the demand
for radio spectrum is outstripping the supply, making it a highly
valued and scarce resource worldwide. This scarcity has much to do with
the static nature of how spectrum is currently managed, motivating the
idea of dynamic spectrum access,” said IEEE DySPAN co-chair Douglas C.
Sicker, a senior advisor to the Federal Communications Commissions
Broadband Plan, and a professor at the University of Colorado.

Hosted by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), DySPAN 2010 will
hold more than 40 sessions, panels, keynotes, demonstrations and
tutorials dedicated to the effective and dynamic use of the RF spectrum.

The event has been designed to showcase cutting-edge technologies
focused on expanding RF spectrum usage and commercializing smart radio
systems. Throughout the event, these demonstrations will highlight
advancements like TV White-Space Video Streaming and Cognitive Radio for
Home Networking.
