International Workshop on Advances in Public Safety and Emergency Communications (APSEC 2014)
The APSEC workshop aims to discuss the most recent trends and technological considerations for future public safety and emergency response communications. The broad areas of interest include rapidly deployable network architectures, wireless technologies, cognitive and self-organizing communications, software-defined radio, device-to-device communications, interoperability considerations, spectrum availability and management, standardization and regulatory aspects. The workshop will bring together researchers, industry fora and relevant user community to share the future research perspectives of public safety and emergency communications and is a timely initiative given the growing importance and outreach for disaster management communication techniques and integrated solutions for public safety communications. Besides the technical insights, the workshop will encourage the participants to discuss among each other. We are seeking papers for oral presentations which present mature results and short papers that can be selected as poster presentation and possibly accompanied with demonstrations or testbeds.
Nils Morozs wins Best Paper Award at IEEE International Symposium of Wireless Communications Systems
Nils Morozs in conjunction with co-authors Tim Clarke and David Grace all from University of York won a best paper award at IEEE ISWCS 2013 in Ilmenau, Germany back at the end of August. The paper, ‘A Novel Adaptive Call Admission Control Scheme for Distributed Reinforcement Learning Based Dynamic Spectrum Access in Cellular Networks’, applies artificial intelligence to reduce the need for accurate spectrum sensing in future cognitive radio networks. Nils is currently just completing the first year of his PhD at York, and this was his first submitted paper.

Isabelle Bucaille, our co-ordinator, chaired a panel of ABSOLUTE partners and EAB members at the Future Networks Mobile Summit (FuNeMS) in Lisbon which concludes today 5th July. In what was described as a "lively session", public safety services requirements, the technical challenges of meeting them and potential solutions were described and questions from the floor answered. The other participants were Shigeru Shimamoto, EAB member from Waseda University inTokyo; Thomas Weber, European Commission Office, Denmark; and Jim Strother, B-APCO, UK.
In the session, four presenters described the growing importance of providing communications that serve public safety services, also sometimes referred to as the “blue light services”. The requirements of the public safety services, the technical challenges of meeting them and potential directions for solutions were described by the speakers.

Just a note for External Advisory Board members to say that the third EAB bulletin is available through the Intranet if you have registered, and has been e-mailed also. If you haven't received it please let me know.
The main Questionnaire is now due although I've extended the deadline until the end of June. All contributions are being analysed and will contribute to the work on the User Requirement deliverable in July and August. Please submit your response asap!
