SDR Panel: Which are the top 3 challenges for free software radio?

An interactive session. Let's talk about SDR!

The state of SDR, and free/open SDR in particular, is interesting. In some cases, SDR research and progress has been declared dead, implying that there is nothing left to research or develop. Practical usage of SDR tells a different story, though, and users of SDR products run into all sorts of issues every day.

In this panel, we would like to discuss with the audience what the top issues are that SDR frameworks need to solve in the near future -- be they technical, legal, political or anything else.

What are the top 3 items that the realm of Software Defined Radio needs to figure out? In this panel, we invite some experts as well as the entire audience to discuss this question. We shall discuss technical challenges (if there are any) as well as legal and political challenges. Does free/open software radio have any different questions to tackle? If we were to attend a technical conference in the near future, what would be the most mind-blowing thing we could present? Will there be more, competing frameworks going forward, or will they consolidate? These and many more questions shall be the topic of this year's SDR panel.
