This paper presents a framework for including cognitive management functionalities in the spectrum selection process for Opportunistic Networks (ONs).The framework is based on a decision making functionality interacting with a knowledge management block that stores and processes information about the spectrum use. Different approaches for spectrum selection are discussed covering specific cases including the capability to aggregate different bands and the possibility to jointly select the spectrum and the network interface. Illustrative results of the proposed framework are presented.
