List of Accepted Demonstrations

We would like to congratulate the authors of accepted papers. Nine demos out of twelve were accepted for a final demonstration.

General Information

Similar to IEEE DySPAN in 2007 and 2008, IEEE DySPAN 2010 will provide the opportunity to conduct live demonstrations of dynamic spectrum access systems. The event will offer an invaluable opportunity to demonstrate and interact with other world-leading researchers in the field of dynamic spectrum access. Apart from demonstrations performed by participating groups, IEEE DySPAN 2010 will create a unique opportunity to conduct experiments. These include (but are not limited to) spectral occupancy measurements and co-existence and system interaction measurements.

Call for Papers and Submission Requirements

To participate in the demonstration and experimentation activities, candidates shall complete the demonstration form to provide a description of the planned demonstration and/or experimentation. The proposals will be evaluated by the IEEE DySPAN 2010 demonstration committee based on the three criteria:

  • Technical Significance: how important and novel is the demonstration to the community.
  • Demonstration Maturity: how mature "to leave the lab" is the demonstration, and if RF transmissions is involved, are a priori or in situ risk mitigation measures to ensure regulatory compliance and coexistence with other spectrum users are included.
  • Demonstration Supportability: how the intended demonstration will fit to the IEEE DySPAN programme, and will it be possible to conduct such demonstration given regulatory and physical constraints.
Submission Requirements

Prospective demonstration developers must fill in a IEEE DySPAN 2010 Demonstration Proposal Form and send to dyspan2010_demos@comsoc.org no later than the deadline set by the IEEE DySPAN organizing committee.

Also, all proposal submissions must prepare and submit to http://edas.info/newpaper.php?c=8171 a maximum 2-page paper describing to the general audience the purposes and functionalities of the developed demonstrator. For the first time, the papers from accepted demonstrations will be included in the IEEE DySPAN 2010 proceedings and IEEE Xplore database. The accompanying 2-page description papers will be reviewed by selected Technical Programme Committee members of IEEE DySPAN to ensure quality and fairness. Review results will have influence on the final decision of the Demonstration Committee.


During IEEE DySPAN 2010 a Best Demo Award will be given to the best university team and best industry team participating in the Demonstration Track. All demos will be evaluated based on visitors' votes (gathered during the conference) and Award committee, which will be introduced during the conference venue.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it already known what frequency ranges will be available for demonstrations during IEEE DySPAN? We are first waiting for all demonstrations to come. Our plan is to open the required frequency ranges for all accepted demonstrations. 
  • Do we need to pay a separate fee for presenting our demonstration, except for a conference registration fee? No, demonstrations have no hidden fees. No additional payment is needed. 
  • If the paper describing the demo is accepted, does it mean that we have to give away the copyright of our demonstration to IEEE? No. IEEE copyright applies only to the content of the paper and not to the demo hardware and software. 
  • Where do we ship our equipment to IEEE DySPAN? What are the arrangements for shipping equipment when the conference is over? The information on the shipping address and the contact person and the shipping procedures will be provided soon. 
  • What is the recommended way of shipping prototype and equipment in and out Singapore? The best way to ship equipment in and out of Singapore is either via courier services or you bring them with you if they meet the travel regulatory requirements. It is also recommended to arrange for Carnet. More information regarding Carnet can be found at www.atacarnet.com and http://cms.sicc.com.sg/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=26&Itemid=48 
  • What power will be available? Singapore uses 220-240V, 50Hz, Type G BS 1363 power plug which has 3-pin and square shape, i.e. UK type. Transformer may be provided upon request. 
  • What Internet and Ethernet facilities will be available?Information will be provided soon. 
  • What test equipment will be available for the demonstrations? Basic equipment such as oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, etc. will be provided. Please check this website frequently for the updated list of equipment. 
  • Where will our allocated demonstration space be? The demonstration will be showcased in the Pan Pacific Hotel. The details of the space will be advised closer to the conference dates. 
  • Where will we store our equipment over night and will security be provided? Yes, the equipment will be guarded by a hotel security personnel. 
  • Will poster stands be available for us? Yes, only one per demonstration. 
  • Who do we contact for issues concerning the demonstrations? Please send all your questions directly to DySPAN demo chairs at dyspan2010_demos@comsoc.org. We will answer all of them. 
  • Can we submit only a 2-page paper or only demo form? No. Demo forms not accompanied by a 2-page paper (and vice versa) will not be considered for review. 
  • What Internet and Ethernet facilities will be available? Information will be provided soon.
