4. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

COST IC1004 –
Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak presented updated results of their works in the Malaga meeting. Also, contributions were sent to the TWGB chairman, to be presented at ISMICT’2013.

Daniel Sebastião finalised the Portuguese version of the survey, and is contributing to IR5.1 “Smart low-EMF architectures: state of the art and way forward”. 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. Carla Oliveira will attend the WP2 face to face meeting in Paris. Filipe Cardoso has finalised Deliverable D7.1 – “Dissemination Plan”, and is finalising the Press Release.

Lúcio Ferreira, Mónica Branco and Sina Khatibi are working on the definition of requirements for Technical Domain B – Access Network Infrastructure Cloud, which will be part of the contribution for D2.1 “Reference Scenarios and Technical System Requirements Definition”. A state of the art on wireless cloud was circulated among all partners.

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. Lúcio Ferreira will present the JRAs proposals and look for the partners during Track 1 meeting in Paris.

Daniel Sebastião is finalising the work for the final Deliverable of WPA, D.A.6 “Final report on exploitation and dissemination”, which focuses on the final results for the dissemination actions held within the project. Lúcio Ferreira and Luisa Caeiro are working on Deliverables D.C.2 “Architecture and Mechanisms for Connectivity Services” and D.C.4 “Applications for OConS and Evaluation”.
