News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.
The project, a major IP in the area of the Future Internet, kicked-off this month, with the opening meeting organised by GROW. Around 120 colleagues from Europe and the USA joined to start the cooperation on the design of a new and better Internet, i.e., telecommunications networks. Luis M. Correia will be in charge of the area of Physical Layer Awareness, together with the co-leadership of Work Package 1.
AROMA – http://www.aroma-ist.upc.edu
This project has been finalised last month. As last contributions, António Serrador has circulated within the project the IST-TUL audit presentation contribution, and the final version of the “Simulation tools: validation and comparison” document, which will be used to reply to project reviewers.
COST2100 – http://www.cost2100.org
At the Wroclaw meeting, Martijn Kuipers, António Serrador, and Lúcio Ferreira will present papers on the work being developed. Additionally, Lúcio Ferreira will lead another meeting of SIG A.
eMobility – http://www.emobility.org
The Platform is preparing contributions to the launching of the Future Internet Assembly, sponsored by the European Commission.
monIT – http://www.lx.it.pt/monit
The team completed a major report focusing on all the measurements performed in the last 5 years of activity. Several aspects, like the influence of the measurement environment, the base station topology, or the duration of the measurements, were analysed. Also, the activities report for the November 2006 to October 2007 period was completed. Both reports are already available in the monIT Project website.
The project, a Network of Excellence in the area of wireless communications, kicked-off this month, in Bologna. Luis M. Correia will be in charge of the Work Packages dealing with Integration.
WIP – http://www.ist-wip.org
A joint paper with other partners has been prepared, and submitted, by Lúcio Ferreira.
