LSN IWG: Large Scale Networking (LSN) Workshop On Operationalizing SDN

August 29, 2017


The Large Scale Networking (LSN) Workshop on Operationalizing SDN will be held from September 18 until September 20 in Washington, D.C. The workshop is in sequel to two previous workshops in 2013 and 2015, with the purpose to invite participants from the academia, industry, open source software communities, and government agencies to discuss the current state and forward pathways for the realization of an open, innovative, multi-domain and inter-operable SDN as an operational infrastructure. The workshop intends to facilitate an objective and constructive dialogue among different SDN stakeholder communities. It will provide input for LSN to identify opportunities and strategies towards the next important milestones for operational SDN.

Registration is open until filled. For more information and to participate in the workshop, please visit http://ccit.clemson.edu/research/lsn-sdn-workshop/.

WSRD Workshop IX: "Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy"

May 5, 2017

Principles of co-existence and interference tolerance are often overlooked and under-exploited in today’s radio receiver systems. For example, a receiver’s ability to accept wanted signals or reject unwanted signals impacts the quality of the information transmitted. The Wireless Spectrum R&D Interagency Working Group (WSRD) held a workshop, “Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy”, on May 5, 2017 at the National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia. The workshop addressed various signal reception topics including technology advances for receivers, transmitters, filters, antenna design, signal processing techniques, and policy issues...
