Call for Book Chapters
Book Title: Cognitive networks: applications and deployments
To be published by: CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, USA

Objective of the Book
Cognitive networks make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine learning techniques, decision making techniques, knowledge representation, network management, network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to communicate the network devices to transfer data between them at any layer of the OSI model. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in order to dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences of its actions. Cognitive networks make use of the information gathered from the network in order to sense the environment, plan actions according to the input, take consciousness of what is happening in the environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be achieved with cognitive networks. Moreover, they could learn from the past and use this !
 knowledge to improve future decisio
ns. The application of cognitive science in data networks has affected significantly data networks advances. The book gathers recent advances in cognitive networks from the last applications and deployment perspective. 
Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal, including, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:
• Cognitive science applied to multimedia delivery
• Application layer, transport layer and network layer cognitive protocols
• Cognitive radio network protocols and algorithms
• Automatic and self-aware protocols and algorithms for environment prediction
• Prediction of data network states
• Cognitive synchronization techniques for network protocols and algorithms
• Cognitive network algorithms for e-health
• Software applications for design and development of cognitive networks
• Dynamic protocols based on the cognitive perception of their performance
• Cognitive networks for Smartgrids
• Cognitive, Automatic and self-autonomous ad-hoc and sensor networks
• Artificial intelligence applied to wireless, mobile and dynamic networks
• Security protocols and algorithms in cognitive networks
• Artificial intelligence applied to power efficiency and energy saving protocols and algorithms
• Cognitive protocol and algorithm models for saving communication costs
• Intelligent techniques applied to QoS, content delivery, network Monitoring and network management
• Smart collaborative and cooperative networks 
• Problem recognition and problem solving protocols
• Genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic and neural networks applied to communication protocols and algorithms

We welcome surveys and technical chapters presenting analytical research, simulations, practical results. We also expect chapters addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and chapters addressing the key problems and solutions. The topics can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.

Abstracts/Chapters submission
Abstracts/ Chapters can be submitted using email attachments to corresponding editors. Authors should send the chapters in single column format (single spaced, 10 point Times Roman font, 8.5 x 11-inch page size). The maximum number of pages for the abstract is 2. Editors expect camera ready chapters of about 15 to 20 pages, but more or less are allowed. Authors must include in the subject of their submission "Book chapter for Cognitive networks: applications and deployments"
