York-Zhejiang Lab for Cognitive Radio and Green Communications

Through equal and congenial discussions the University of York (UK) and Zhejiang University (China) unanimously agreed to the establishment of the York-Zhejiang Lab for Cognitive Radio and Green Communications. The establishment ceremony was held on April 12, 2010.

The York-Zhejiang Lab aims to enhance the academic exchanges, including postgraduate student exchanges, and strategic long-term cooperation in advanced research and student training between the University of York and Zhejiang University in the targeted fields of Cognitive Radio and Green Communications.

Within the York-Zhejiang Lab, the following research areas will be focused on:

  • Green cognitive radio
  • Green radio access networks (G-RAN)
  • Energy-efficient networking paradigms, systems and architecture
  • Cognitive communications for smart environments
  • Applications of advanced Artificial Intelligence
  • Compressed sensing for energy-efficient cognitive radio and networks
  • Cognitive mesh (CogMesh), ad-hoc and body area (sensor) networks
  • Low complexity & reconfigurable cognitive radio
  • Cognitive radio for next-generation opportunistic spectrum access
  • Spectrum charging/auctions in cognitive networks
  • Cognitive Medium Access Control/etiquette protocols
  • Security in cognitive radio & networks
  • Testbed and trials for cognitive radio
