In this paper, we propose CCAWSN a Cognitive Communication Architecture for Wireless Sensor Networks. Cognition in the context of sensor networks deals with the ability to be aware of the environment and end-user requirements and proactively adapt to them, thus benefiting the network as a whole. The network architecture, its cognitive components and interaction among them are the main focus and contribution of this work.
