Information about incoming and outgoing people, besides other related news.

Wow! GROW graduated 3 Ph.Ds. this month, just before starting the holidays’ period. Michal Mackowiak, Carla Oliveira and Lúcio Ferreira successfully defended their Ph.D. Theses on July 22nd, 23rd and 24th, respectively. They will continue to be part of GROW, working in the projects they are already involved. We wish them all the best.

Monsaraz was again the host for another STAR WARM (Still Another Wonderful Annual Reunion in Monsaraz), the 13th edition, on July 6th. GROW’s members’, and their families, had the opportunity to spend some hours together, enjoying themselves.

4. Projects

News about the several projects in which GROW is involved.

COST IC1004 –
Michal Mackowiak, Lúcio Ferreira and Luisa Caeiro are preparing contributions to the next meeting.

Work has been progressing on simulations for exposure reduction (WP5), as well as on numerical simulations with the simplified dosimeter model (WP3). Michal Mackowiak and Carla Oliveira will start initial simulations for the Eartha data posture in 3G/4G scenarios (WP2), and the model segmentation of the Eartha model with data posture has been performed and send to partners (WP2). Michal Mackowiak, Carla Oliveira and Daniel Sebastião have contributed to the IR2.1 (WP2). Filipe Cardoso is preparing the first newsletter issue, which will be distributed in September 2013.

Our contributions for Deliverable D3.1 “Infrastructure Management Foundations – Specifications & Design for MobileCloud framework” on RAN as a Service (RANaaS) aspects are progressing. This work is focused on the RANaaS reference architecture model, and also management of virtual radio resources and BBU pool dimensioning.

Carla Oliveira and Michal Mackowiak are interacting with the colleagues of Poznan, concerning the JRA on Virtual MIMO applied to BANs.

FAQTOs is a new project, just started, which continues the work performed in the monIT project, on risk communication to EMFs from wireless networks. All the project information and its website are being prepared, and will be available soon.
