a title and abstract (300 words or less) with your registration.

Poster Session: At last year’s NEWSDR, we began inviting individuals
to display posters representing their work relating to SDR and
cognitive radio. Posters will be on display throughout the day and
attendees will have the opportunity to review the posters during
breaks and a short poster session. If you are interested in presenting
a poster at the workshop, please provide a title and abstract (300
words or less) with your registration.
