COST IC1004 meeting, Ilmenau, Germany
News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.
COST IC1004 – http://www.ic1004.org
GROW members are preparing contributions to the next meetings.
LEXNET – http://www.lexnet-project.eu
Daniel Sebastião and Carla Oliveira finalised their contribution to IR5.1 “Smart low-EMF architectures: state of the art and way forward”, and prepared a contribution on life segmentation regarding EMF exposure. Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak contributed to D2.1 “Current metrics for EMF exposure evaluation”, and are preparing an internal document on the state of the art on this topic. Work is also progressing on the topic of the numerical tools.
MCN – http://www.mobile-cloud-networking.eu
Lúcio Ferreira, Mónica Branco and Sina Khatibi are working on the Wireless Cloud task. They have done a state of the art report, proposed a motivation scenario and an architecture for the Wireless Cloud, integrating Cloud-RAN concepts (composed of remote radio heads and baseband units). INOV’s perspective of the Wireless Cloud Architecture was presented in task T2.3 and WP4 meetings in Aveiro.
NEWCOM# – http://www.newcom-project.eu
The consolidation of the Joint Research Activities for all tasks is being prepared. Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak are setting up a JRA on the topic of MIMO channel modelling for on-body communications, with PUT – Poznan Univ. of Technology.
SAIL – http://www.sail-project.eu
The project has ended.
