Message from General Chairs

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Second International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications -- CrownCom 07. This year's conference grows from the success of CrownCom 06 in Mykonos Island, Greece, to become a major event for presentation of research results and experience reports in the field of cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access. Crowncom provides a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share their perspectives with others interested in the various aspects the field. The call for papers attracted submissions from countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. The program committee accepted 64 full papers and 14 papers reporting work-in-progress. The accepted papers cover a variety of topics, including Resource Management, Spectrum Sharing, Sensing, Ultra-Wideband Cognitive Radio Systems, Wireless Coexistence, and adaptive radio transceivers. In addition, the program includes panel sessions, tutorials, and keynote speeches by Prof. Victor Lawrence, Dr. Joseph Mitola and Dr. Robert O'Dea. We hope that the proceedings will serve as a valuable resource for research.

The program committee members deserve many thanks for their effort in putting the technical program together. They have worked very hard in reviewing papers and making valuable suggestions for the authors to improve their work. We also would like to express our gratitude to the external reviewers, for providing extra helps in the review process, and the authors for contributing their research result to the program. Putting together CrownCom 07 was a team effort. First, we would like to thank Dr. Imrich Chlamtac (Chair) and Dr. Honggang Zhang of the CrownCom 07 steering committee for their guidance and encouragement. We would also like to thank Prof. Thomas Hou, Prof. Alexander M. Wyglinski and Dr. Maziar Nekovee (Technical Co-Chairs), Dr. Cengiz Evci and Prof. Sumit Roy (Sponsorship Co-Chairs), Prof. Jon Peha and Prof. Kyutae Lim (Panel Co-Chairs), Dr. Stephen F. Bush and Prof. Subir Biswas (Tutorial Co-Chairs), Prof. K. P. Subbalakshmi and Prof. William Lehr (Special Sessions Co-Chairs), Dr. Sastry Kompella, Dr. Patrick Maille and Dr. Stefan Mangold (Publicity Co-Chairs) and Prof. R. N. Uma (Publication Chair) for their effort on various issues in organization, and Prof. Mainak Chatterjee (Local Arrangements Chair) his work on the local arrangements. Special thanks go to Ms. Kitti H. Kovacs (Conference Coordinator) for registration and many other tedious tasks and to Mr. Wenjing Wang for maintaining the CrownCom 07 web site. Finally, we would like to thank our sponsor, ICST, for their continued support of CrownCom meetings.

We hope that you will find this program interesting and thought-provoking and that the conference will provide you with a valuable opportunity to share ideas with other researchers and practitioners from institutions around the world.
