3. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

Daniel Sebastião and João Gonçalves are working on the next deliverable from WP1 (D1.4) and on some book chapters. Lúcio Ferreira was in the University of Basel (15-18 March) working with Manolis Sifalakis on the implementation of the Wireless Mesh Network research using the GP architecture. António Serrador and Luisa Caeiro have contributed to WP3 on Integration Scenario description and Storyline about Virtual Networks instantiation. António Serrador, as WP3 Physical Layer Awareness contact person, has contributed to the PLA paper final version. Filipe Cardoso has finished editing a paper on Physical Layer Awareness to be submitted to IEEE Communications Magazine. Also, a new project deliverable, D5.5, addressing Physical Layer Awareness aspects is being prepared to be delivered by the end of May.

COST2100 –
Carla Oliveira and Luis Correia are working on Chapter 16 (Body Communications) of the COST2100 Final Report.

António Serrador has contributed to WP3 reference scenarios inputs to WP2 with a list of topics related with cellular traffic load statistics and users mobility models. Filipe Cardoso has edited a contribution for IM4.1 within the scope of T4.1 leadership.

eMobility –
Work on the next applications workshop (to be held on the 19th May in Athens, Greece) is ongoing.

monIT –
Public information actions in schools continued, and several actions were also conducted for schools visiting IST (DEEC-Telecommunications and in the course of the “À Descoberta das Rotas da Matemática da UTL” event) facilities. Regarding Prémio monIT, the next deadline is 29th of March, when the second report progress must be delivered by the groups still competing.

The paper submitted to the NEWCOM++ Workshop was accepted.
