Abstract: The 13th Annual International Symposium on Advanced Radio Technologies, held in Boulder, Colorado, July 24–26, 2012, presented the second conference focused on Developing Forward Thinking Rules and Processes to Fully Exploit Spectrum Resources. Following on from the previous two ISARTs, ISART 2012 looked at Case Study 2—Exploring Approaches for Real-Time Federal Spectrum Sharing. Topics covered included The Federal Spectrum Ecosystem, Current Federal Efforts that Can Increase Spectrum Sharing, Institute for Telecommunication Sciences Spectrum Survey Activities, TV White Space Tutorial, Fresh Approaches to Spectrum Sharing, and Validating and Regulating New Sharing Schemes. The keynote speaker was Larry Strickling, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information, National Telecommunications and Information Administration. This volume of proceedings is taken directly from the court reporter’s transcription of the conference. A best effort has been made to correct spellings of names and terms of art, but it is in no way an “edited” transcript.
