After the success of DySPAN 2005 in Baltimore and DySPAN 2007 in Dublin, the IEEE DySPAN Conference has firmly established itself as the premier forum for discussion of all aspects of devices and networks that utilize spectrum on a dynamic basis. DySPAN 2008 aims to further build on this success and bring to fore new cutting-edge research in the technology, policy, economic and legal dimensions of dynamic, decentralized access to the radio spectrum both on a consensual and non-consensual basis.

In the near future, two complementary trends are emerging. First, the networks and devices will operate in wider bands, process large amounts of information to make intelligent decisions, and become reconfigurable via software defined capabilities.  Second, the regulators around the world can exploit these technology advances to foster increased and more effective spectrum utilization. These trends are making dynamic spectrum access critically important to the future for wireless communications and networks.
