Speech Title: Next Generation Communication System Using Cognitive Radio Networks
Abstract: The tremendous success of wireless communication technology has led to an enormous demand for spectrum, and hence a shortage of, bandwidth resources. The shortage problem is primarily due to the inefficient, static nature of spectrum assignment techniques and huge data requirement for services provided on network. The next generation communication is expected to have all connect communication between various types of devices having different protocols connected using common channel. Next-generation wireless (NextG) involves the concept that the next generation of wireless communications will be a major move toward ubiquitous wireless communications systems and seamless high-quality wireless services This will further increase demand of spectrum requirements. As an initial step to solve the shortage problem, FCC allowed the opportunistic spectrum access, which allows unlicensed users to exploit unused licensed spectrum, but in a manner, which should not lead to interference to licensed users. Fortunately, technological advances enabled cognitive radios, which are viewed as intelligent communication systems that can learn from their surrounding environments, and adapt their internal operating parameters in real-time to improve spectrum efficiency. Cognitive radios have recently been recognized as the key enabling technology for realizing OSA. The cognitive radio network As it has already been stated, the next generation networks are a vision of a converged network, meeting all the requirements for a converged universal packet network of the future. The Cognitive Radio Network enhances the utilities of wireless network services by configuring the radio model, dynamically allocates bands to users, and empowers electronic devices to logically adapt to the demands of wireless communication.

Speech Title: Timing Synchronization and Node Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks consist of a large number of sensor nodes, capable of on-board sensing and data processing, that are employed to observe some phenomenon of interest. With their desirable properties of flexible deployment, resistance to harsh environment and lower implementation cost, wireless sensor networks envisage a plethora of applications in diverse areas such as industrial process control, battlefield surveillance, health monitoring, and target localization and tracking. This presentation will focus on deriving efficient estimators and performance bounds for the clock parameters in wireless sensor networks. Identifying the close connections between the problems of node localization and clock synchronization, we also address in this presentation the problem of joint estimation of an unknown node's location and clock parameters by incorporating the effect of imperfections in node oscillators. A review of the state-of-the-art results and open research problems will be also presented.
