Mitola to deliver keynote address at CROWNCOM 2010

HOBOKEN, N.J. - Dr. Joe Mitola, Vice President for Research Enterprise at Stevens Institute of Technology will deliver a keynote address at the upcoming CrownCom 2010 conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications.

Recognized internationally for his formulation and groundbreaking research in software radio and cognitive radio systems and technologies, Mitola develops large scale, cross-disciplinary research initiatives among the Institute’s diverse centers, laboratories, and contract research projects.

In 2008 Mitola was appointed a Distinguished Professor at Stevens, holding a joint appointment at the Schaefer School of Engineering and Science and the School of Systems and Enterprises. He is also a Fellow of the IEEE.

In addition to having published the first technical paper on software radio architecture in 1991, Mitola has published widely and taught courses in software radio in the Unites States, Europe, and Asia.

In 1999 he coined the term cognitive radio for the integration of machine perception of RF, visual and speech domains with machine learning into SDR to make dynamic spectrum access technically viable.

Now in its 5 th year, CrownCom aims to bring together original, high-quality contributions that present new techniques, concepts and analyses in the area of cognitive radio algorithms and system design.

Topics of the conference will include spectrum sensing and pooling, network design and optimization, software-defined and flexible radio architectures, channel modeling, collaborative communications, as well as beam forming and multicast methods.

The conference will be held on June 9-11, 2010 at the in Cannes, France. Additional information about the conference may be found at
