York – Zhejiang Summer School on Cognitive Communications

York – Zhejiang Summer School on Cognitive Communications

12 – 16 September 2011

University of York, York, UK 


The second York-Zhejiang Summer School on Cognitive Communications will take place from 12 - 16 September 2011 at University of York, York, UK. The central aim is to bring together up to 80 like-minded research active individuals to explore the ever-growing field of Cognitive Communications, which encompasses cognitive radio, cognitive networks, and application of cognition to other aspects of communications systems.  This follows on from the first York-Zhejiang Summer School in Cognitive Communications, which took place last year at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.  This event attracted delegates from all over the world. 

Supported by a team of six expert lecturers, the programme includes tutorials, providing an in-depth introduction to key topics, lectures dealing with more specialist techniques, workshops, one centred on a mini-project “a tech-fest” to be undertaken during the week, the other giving delegates hands on experience of tools and implementation. There will also be time for a short seminar and poster session, to allow delegates to display their current research in the area. Briefings of various relevant projects from around the world will also be given.  

The evenings will be more devoted to cultural aspects, with a welcome reception and banquet, a Ghost Walk around the historic City of York and also a visit to York Brewery. 

The School is designed for Masters students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and junior Lecturers with interests in Cognitive Communications. Courses will be comparable to first year graduate courses.
