It is widely accepted that there is insufficient spectrum available to meet the predicted demands for high-speed data over the next decade. This is due in part to inefficiencies inherent in current spectrum allocations.
One proposed solution is to enable "dynamic spectrum markets" that allow spectrum to be re-allocated over short time-scales. Such approaches could leverage advances in technology that enable more flexible devices that are not tied to a single band of spectrum. This workshop will focus on the technical, economic, and policy issues surrounding the design and deployment of dynamic spectrum markets.
The workshop will begin the morning of Thursday, June 2 and end the next afternoon. It will consist of a series of talks and panels. An objective of the workshop is to initiate discussion between experts in wireless networking, economics, and spectrum policy. Hence, there will be a mix of talks from experts from these different areas. The intention is that the talks will be accessible to a multi-disciplinary audience and emphasize key issues associated with the speaker's area of expertise.
