3. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.



Lúcio Ferreira and Martijn Kuipers joined the WP5 – FORMUX meeting in Paris, France, dealing with the definition of generic paths and their relation to the WP dealing with information objects. The whole GROW team has been participating in the weekly phone conferences associated to each of the WPs. Filipe Cardoso has circulated within the project a document with the contribution on Physical Layer Awareness to Report R-2.1.



Luis M. Correia attended the Final Audit, which ended with a successful completion of the project, and some minor requests from the auditors. António Serrador, upon request of the auditors, has sent to the Project Manager an updated version of Deliverable 13, by inserting into it the “Simulation tools: validation and comparison” document.


COST2100 –

At the Wroclaw meeting, Martijn Kuipers, António Serrador, and Lúcio Ferreira presented papers on the work being developed. Additionally, Lúcio Ferreira led another meeting of SIG A, where several reference scenarios were presented, including presentations from Martijn Kuipers and António Serrador.


eMobility –

Diana Ladeira and Luis M. Correia attended the meeting of WG on Leading Edge Applications, where Diana Ladeira presented contributions to the service framework description.


monIT –

The project team is currently doing a review of the website contents, making some slight content changes, including new FAQs and updating links. Also, the results obtained within the global measurements report are being used to produce some papers being submitted to various conferences. Finally, the project was presented to some students of the Prof. Herculano Carvalho school who visited the IST campus during February.



Carla Oliveira and Martijn Kuipers participated in the WPR.1 meeting in Vienna, Austria, discussing the joint-collaboration with the other partners in the project, on topics such as channel modelling for BAN, MIMO and introduction of antenna characteristics into channel models. António Serrador has circulated within the WPR9 IST group, a presentation related to IST topics that will be discussed in the kick-off meeting in Barcelona next month.



Contributions to the audit, to be held next month, were circulated.
