    Taking into account of the evolving trend of heterogeneous networks convergence as well as the essential characteristics of adaptation, flexibility and intelligence necessary for future wireless networks, this project mainly focuses on cognitive wireless mesh networking (CogMesh) scenario, which aims as integrating various representative heterogeneous networking architectures and will be adaptive to dynamically changing spectrum resources and interference environment. In concrete, by taking advantage of theoretic analysis, simulation modeling and experimental demonstration, the following research topics will be investigated, namely: (1) dynamic spectrum resource management and interference control within the framework of cognitive clusters and cloud, including distributed cooperative spectrum sensing and sharing, Common Control Channel (CCC) based dynamic spectrum allocation algorithms, and adaptive scheduling & decision methods; (2) cognitive switching technique suitable for varying spectrum and interference environment, based on cross-layer collaboration design principle; and (3) multiple dimensional resource prediction models and active/passive resource-preserving protocols considering content-awareness, differentiated service priority and interference-constrained QoS.
