News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.
COST IC1004 – http://www.ic1004.org
The book “Pervasive Mobile and Ambient Wireless Communications”, with the main findings from the COST 2100 action has been published by Springer. The book contains contributions from Carla Oliveira and Luis M. Correia, on Chapter 15 (Body Communications) and Chapter 16 (Wrapping Up and Looking at the Future). More information can be found at: http://www.springer.com/engineering/signals/book/978-1-4471-2314-9.
EARTH – http://www.ict-earth.eu
Filipe Cardoso has edited a document entitled “Beamforming and Energy Efficiency in LTE” to be presented in the next EARTH meeting in Sophia Antipolis. A joint paper in the scope of WP4/T41 was submitted to IEEE Communications Magazine. António Serrador performed simulations using the proposed new scenarios (multi-sites and multi-RAT RRM) and parameters for low, medium, high traffic loads.
Net!Works – http://www.networks-etp.eu
Luis M. Correia is preparing contributions to the FIA workshop.
monIT – http://monit.it.pt
During this month, there were still some news in the media about the monIT study on the usage of mobile phones by Portuguese youngsters. Nine actions were held in secondary schools during February, and more are scheduled for the upcoming month. The monIT team is also giving talks to secondary schools students visiting the electrical engineering department. Two continuous measurement networks were installed in Sines (in cooperation with the municipalities) and Castro Verde (in the secondary school). In the meantime, 5 measurement stations were removed from Lisbon and Macedo de Cavaleiros. Regarding Prémio monIT, training actions on the measurement equipment are being carried on with some of the groups. The groups are now preparing their 2nd progress report, to be submitted by March, 16th.
SAIL – http://www.sail-project.eu
The interim report of taskT.A.4, addressing business models, has been finished and circulated by the project partners. Lúcio Ferreira and Luisa Caeiro are working on the redefinition of the OConS architectural framework; they are preparing a paper for “Springer Telecommunication Systems Special Issue: Mobility Management for Flat Networks” journal.
