IMDEA Networks announces its participation on the Erasmus Mundus Programme “TEAM”. This initiative will generate a network of excellence between Europe, Japan and Republic of Korea in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that summons up an international community of much-needed ICT skilled talent.
To meet our everyday needs in an increasingly multifaceted technological world is a challenge that pushes researchers to find innovative tools using a multidisciplinary approach. We inhabit a globalized planet, made up of complex systems, where domains such as communications, business, healthcare, energy or transportation converge, interact and integrate. In this context, a thriving technology trend applies the concept of animal swarms or swarming to the development of complex systems that bridge the gap amongst disciplines as dissimilar as biology, robotics or networking.
Joerg Widmer, Research Professor and Research Strategy Manager at IMDEA Networks Institute, is General Chair for the IEEE/IFIP Annual Conference on Wireless On-demand Network Systems and Services. WONS 2014 will take place from April 2nd to the 4th in Obergurgl, Austria. Joerg’s extensive experience on wireless research has led him to be elected General Chair of the 11th edition of this well-established networking forum, together with Christoph Sommer, from University of Innsbruck, in Austria.
IMDEA Networks Institute announces the launch of the research project ÁBACO, an Open Source Distributed Platform for the Management and Distribution of Multi-device Digital Content.
Internet has nowadays become a booster of development. This knowledge sharing space allows people to communicate with ease anywhere and anytime, and it considerably reduces the prices of services while opening new horizons for progress: e-government, e-education, telemedicine, e-commerce, research, e-companies, remote assistance, e-tourism, etc. Its adoption and rapid expansion lower the rate of poverty in some developing countries, hence considered to be emergent.
IMDEA Networks Institute has become a member of the 5G Infrastructure Association, a legal entity created by the European Commission and aiming to accelerate work on fifth-generation (5G) cellular networks for 2020 and beyond. This partnership initiative will lead the 7-year long European effort to produce and influence international standards for next-generation cellular networks, laying out the ambitious vision and research agenda.
Institute IMDEA Networks has announced the launch of an ambitious project to map and measure the network connectivity and reachability of West African Internet over a three year period. Connectivity in the region traditionally suffers from high latency, high cost and narrow bandwidth.
This week mi+dtv will discuss the election of two Spanish scientists onto the Steering Committee of two European Technology Platforms; the mechanism of perception of certain colors by the colorblind and new potential applications of stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood.
Two Spanish scientists haves been voted onto the Steering Committee of the European Technology Platforms (ETPs) Net!Works and ISI. They are 2 of the 6 international scientists elected during the joint general assembly held yesterday, October 29th, in Brussels. Among the 25 candidates representing excellence in advanced telecommunications research, 6 Spaniards have bid for a place in this organization that will lead the next decade of European research on mobile communications.
