"Cognitive radio wireless networking has become a true paradigm-shifting technology in the telecommunications field, which is something that does not happen very often," said Subbalakshmi. "This special panel aims to provide a unique platform to discuss not only the existing research themes and the status of cognitive radio and networks, but also to create a roadmap for the future."

The panel brings together the key-players from the academy, industry and standardization bodies around the world with varied backgrounds and expertise, while targeting multiple significant aspects of the cognitive wireless systems and technologies, including a broad range of communications, networking, implementation, and radio spectrum regulatory policy reform issues. The recent worldwide standardization efforts and achievements in IEEE 802.22 and IEEE 1900 Working Group will be highlighted as well.

Dr. Subbalakshmi's research interests lie in the areas of information and network security, cognitive radio networks and wireless and multimedia networking and coding. She is the Chair of the Special Interest Group in Multimedia Security, IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Communications (MMTC), IEEE COMSOC. She is also the secretary of the MMTC. She is a recipient of the Stevens Technogenesis® Award for Research and Technology Contributions in 2007, as well as a Stevens President's Research Recognition Award, 2003. She was visiting researcher at IRISA (Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systèmes Aléatoires), INRIA, France, in October 2007. She has organized and served as the Program Co-Chair for several IEEE symposia in her areas of interests as well as an Associate/Guest Editor of several journals.
