Isabel CogArt Dear All, Please consider that the paper submission deadline for regular papers and extended abstracts is approaching: June 15, 2011 In this period, we have intensively worked to create the Technical Programme for ISABEL and CogART 2011. The first two keynote speakers have been listed, and several others are to provide a final answer, including the Nobel Prize Prof. Robert Aumann. Prof. Ilangko Balasingham, Interventional Centre, Oslo University Hospital, Norway, and Prof. Sanjay Kumar from Birla Institute of Technology (BIT), India, have lastly entered our International Scientific Committee. Our list of Technical Programme Committee members and reviewers has been finalized, with a total of around 150 highly qualified scientists . Currently, we are negotiating for the special issues of this year. The submission system (Easy Chair) will be soon available as well as our registration fees. Finally, we have obtained IEEE GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) as one of our supporters. ISABEL 2011 will host a one-day in-conjunction workshop on "Students Satellites",where students involved in satellite projects will be invited to submit research papers describing current/recent projects in which they have been involved in the design and/or construction of satellites. Also, papers describing related projects, such as ground station networks or applications of student satellites, will be presented. The main scope for this workshop is to provide participants an overview of student satellite projects in Europe and to allow the exchange of project experience from theory to source code. The two special Issues outcome of ISABEL and CogART 2010 have received a good number of external contributions, besides the extended versions of the best papers of last year's conferences. Our mission this year is to further elevate the scientific quality of our conferences and to ultimately launch them as renowned international events, where you will find appealing and well-developed topics, and you will be able to fruitfully share ideas with prominent personalities within your field. In particular, the development of the One2One tool, our business and science match making, will facilitate you during our conferences to create even more research opportunities and potential business partnerships by means of one-to-one meetings with various stakeholders, both from business and academia. As we are willing to make One2One as a customized match making event, which would perfectly fit your specific needs, please indicate what you are exactly looking for by answering to our quick 1-page online survey. Finally, we are also working hard in devising our social programme to create a pleasant environment, where you can meet your professional needs as well as enjoy your stay in Barcelona. During next week we will finalize the venues for the conference and the gala award dinner as well as our offers in terms of accommodation. In conclusion, we would like to ask you to mark your calendar with our events, as many of your colleagues from all over the world have already done! All updates can be found below and on our website. Have a look at videos and photos from last year's conferences in our multimedia gallery. Thanks and kind regards, Simone Frattasi, Ph.D. ISABEL and CogART President www.isabelconference.com Isabel ISABEL 2011 4th International Symposium on Applied Sciences in Biomedical and Communication Technologies Theme: Smart Enablers of Communication and Biomedical Technologies supporting Post-Disaster Aftermath See our Call for Papers here. The inter-disciplinary approach is becoming an increasing need in scientific and industrial communities. The most evident example of such a need is represented by the strong interconnection between biomedical and communication engineering. On the one hand, ICT can provide new tools for making healthcare systems more efficient and responsive in order to supply in-the-home and mobile healthcare solutions. On the other hand, many of the most recent advances in communication technologies - from algorithms to the electronics and materials - are "bio-inspired". Moreover, it is increasing the awareness of the great potentials offered by the synergistic combination of many disciplines (e.g., mathematics and physics, biology and chemistry) in both biomedical and communication engineering. The global interest towards a safer Planet is forcing the industrial and scientific worlds to seek for engineering solutions in order to re-establish normal conditions both in terms of communication and medical-related functionalities, which are two of most basic needs of human beings, especially under critical scenarios in the aftermath of a disaster, either natural or man-made. Hence, from 2011 onward, ISABEL will also look upon the application of sciences in biomedical and communication engineering so as to develop novel technologies and solutions that can make our lives "safer" in critical situation.

CoArt CogART 2011 4th International Conference on Cognitive Radio and Advanced Spectrum Management Theme: Cognitive and Self-Organizing Networks for Disasters Aftermath Assistance See our Call for Papers here. Conventional fixed spectrum allocation cannot successfully cope with the scarcity of radio frequency spectrum. Cognitive radio is a novel technology, which improves the spectrum utilization by seeking and opportunistically utilizing radio resources in time, frequency and space domains on a real time basis. The cognitive radio technology poses many new technical challenges, and overcoming these issues becomes even more challenging due to non-uniform spectrum and other radio resource allocation policies, economic considerations, the inherent transmission impairments of wireless links and user mobility. Cognitive radio technology advances are based on interdisciplinary research, including among others: signal processing, information theory, communications engineering, artificial intelligence, game theory, economics and legal issues. This conference aims at publishing high quality research papers related to cognitive radio and its applications. An important and emerging application of cognitive networks and self-organizing networks, in general, is to help in the aftermath assistance in case of natural or man-made disaster strikes. To give relief in the affected areas, the interested parties, i.e., relief and security groups, need communications support; therefore, a communication network needs to be established as quickly and as easily as possible in order to ensure that rescue and relief efforts are not further hindered. From a communication perspective, a disaster scenario can be characterized as having hazardous spatial environments (with the prevention of infrastructure deployment as a consequence) and possibly radio environments as well (with the impairment of the spectrum bands assigned to disaster relief services as a consequence). Cognitive and self-organizing networks come as a solution to implement disaster relief networks, the latter being infrastructure-less or not.
