News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

COST2100 –
Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak presented their works at the Bologna meeting.

António Serrador has updated the contribution on Deliverable D3.1 “Most promising tracks of green network technologies”, by performing simulations in order to obtain the energy efficiency gains in heterogeneous networks; this is mainly obtained by moving mobile terminals to the most efficient base stations. Filipe Cardoso finalised his work as chapter editor of Deliverable D4.1 “Most promising tracks of green radio technologies” on multi-antenna techniques.

eMobility –
Work on Smart Cities white paper is ongoing.

António Serrador has presented a joint paper entitled “Statistical Analysis of Power Distribution for Radio Resource Management in OFDMA Cellular Systems” at the NEWCOM++ joint WPR8&WPR9 workshop, co-authored with Giulio Dainelli (Pisa Univ.) and Marco Moretti (Pisa Univ.). Contributions to Deliverable DR9.3 were discussed

monIT –
Some information actions were done in schools spread all over the country, with several more being already scheduled for the next months. Also, in Prémio monIT, the first deadline is approaching, as the students need to fill in the first progress report by Dec. 17th.

Lúcio Ferreira and Luisa Caeiro contributed to the definition of scenarios, use-cases and stakeholders within WP-C “Open Connectivity”. Daniel Sebastião and João Gonçalves are working on Deliverable D.A.1 “Description of project wide scenarios and use cases”.
