Calling all modulation recognition experts: DARPA is organizing a Battle of the ModRecs Workshop, March 6-8 at DySPAN 2017.

The Battle of the ModRecs seeks to explore the field of modulation recognition to better understand how to approach these problems and, most importantly, to compare results. Data driven approaches, which have seen exponential adoption in other AI community problems, are beginning to emerge in the spectrum community.  The goal of the workshop is to spur the community to begin building and using commonly available datasets. These datasets can serve as benchmarks for open comparisons in much the same way that ImageNet and MNIST serve as benchmarks for the image recognition community.

The Battle is separated into a workshop and a live over-the-air event. The workshop will take place during the DySPAN workshop day of March 6, 2017. The Battle will take place between March 7 and 8, 2017 during the technical conference.

For those that are interested, more information and the call for papers can be found on the DySPAN website:

Note: Participation in the workshop is completely optional and is not a requirement for participation in the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge.
