Cognitive Networks working on large scale are experimenting an increasing popularity. The interest, by both a scientific and commercial perspective, in the context of different environments, applications and domains is a fact. The natural convergence point for these heterogeneous disciplines is the need of a strong advanced technologic support that enables the generation of distributed observations on large scale as well as the intelligent process of obtained information. Focusing mostly on

Furthermore, the centralized view at the systems is a strong limitation for dynamic data processing and knowledge building.
