This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Cognitive Radio-Oriented Wireless Networks, CROWNCOM 2019, held in Poznan, Poland, in June 2019. The 30 revised full papers were selected from 48 submissions and present a large scope of research topic also covering IoT in 5G and how cognitive mechanisms shall help leveraging access for numerous devices; mmWave and how specific propagation and operation in these bands bring new sharing mechanisms ; how resource allocation amongst bands (including offload mechanisms) shall be solved. The key focus will be on how rich data analysis can improve the delivery of above defined services.
