“Smart radio” (cognitive, adaptive, and software defined radio) offers the promise of greatly alleviating spectrum scarcity and increasing the diversity of users and applications. Radios that can locate unused spectrum should significantly reduce congestion, and encourage competitive, commercial and community entry. Such technologies will have significant impacts on existing stakeholders, on market structures and on network performance. This conference intended to establish a dialog between the electrical engineering community developing these new technologies and those involved in developing economic models and regulatory policies needed to facilitate the introduction of the new technologies.
