TCCN Communications launched!

I am very happy to introduce to you the inaugural issue of TCCN Communications. I would like to express my sincere thanks to TCCN Chair, Dr. Ying-Chang Liang, and other TCCN officers for their enthusiastic support for starting this initiative to serve the community.

This inaugural December 2015 issue (can be downloaded here) includes two special issues on some very hot topics of cognitive communications and networking:

A special issue on “Cognitive Radio for Heterogeneous Networks” edited by Prof. Walid Saad from Virginia Tech,
A special issue on “TV White Space Communications and Networking” edited by Prof. Yue Gao from Queen Mary University of London.

These two special issues contain a total of 13 contributions from leading experts in the field, and cover both recent progress and forward-looking insights regarding technology, economics, and regulations of cognitive radio networks. I would like to congratulate Walid and Yue for the excellent work. I also want to thank Prof. Lingjie Duan from Singapore University of Technology and Design for taking care of the formatting and final editing details as the Publication Editor.

Besides publishing the special issues, we plan to further recommend selected top papers and PhD Dissertations in future TCCN Communication issues. We also welcome any suggestions from TCCN members regarding how to make this platform most interesting and useful to the community. Please feel free to contact me at if you have any suggestions.

Thanks and best regards,
