EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering

The EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering  was established in November 2011 and is organized by the Department of Computer Science of the European University Cyprus. The purpose of Colloquium is to provide a forum to our colleagues, our current and potentially future collaborators as well as known scientists to meet, present research findings, and discuss developments on a variety of topics spanning all important fields of Computer Science and Engineering. It also aims to provide an environment in which graduate students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of Computer science, including Networks, Software Engineering, Databases, Algorithms, Theoretical Computer Science, Human Computer Interaction, High Performance Computing, and Operational Research, as well as aspects of Mathematics and Engineering.

If you are interested in giving at talk at the Colloquium, please contact the coordinator Dr. Vicky Papadopoulou by filling out the Colloquium Form.

Future Wireless Communications - Implementing Internet of Things (IoTs) using Cognitive Radio Capabilities in 5G Mobile Networks








Fifth generation (5G) communication systems are expected to achieve a 1000x to 10,000x capacity increase compared to legacy 4th Generation (4G) technology. For this ambitious goal, it is imperative that new spectrum for 5G applications is identified. As the number of wireless devices increases dramatically with the introduction of IoT, there is a need to reconsider the traditional way of regulating the radio frequency spectrum in order to ensure effective use and reuse of it. Current studies show that although most of the usable spectrum bands have been allocated, they are highly underutilized. Cognitive Radio (CR) is the new radio concept proposed for revolutionizing spectrum management in a flexible and fair manner allowing primary users (higher priority - legacy right) and secondary users (lower priority – opportunistic channel assignment) to share their resources, thus maximizing utilization of the radio spectrum. Cognitive Radio (CR) is an adaptive, intelligent radio and network technology that can adjust itself to operate on different radio frequencies by detecting available channels in a wireless spectrum and changing its transmission parameters to make full use of them. It also has the ability to sense the presence of the primary users, thus moving into new bands when necessary to minimize interference.

Short CV

Dr. Konstantinos Katzis is Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the European University Cyprus. Dr Katzis received his BEng degree in Computer Systems Engineering and his MSc degree in Radio Systems Engineering from University of Hull in 2000 and 2001 respectively. In 2006 he received his PhD in Electronics from University of York (UK). Dr. Katzis research work covers the areas of communications research, computer engineering and applications, and educational technology. His research accomplishments include a considerable number of refereed articles and book chapters published in academic journals and edited books. Dr Katzis is currently the Working Group Secretary in the IEEE1900.6 Standard, working on Spectrum Sensing Interfaces and Data Structures for Dynamic Spectrum Access and other Advanced Radio Communication Systems. He is also the representative of Cyprus in the Horizon 2020 Work Programme in the thematic area of Space.
