13th work meeting – final event SymbioNets project

iMinds, 15 October 2013

You are cordially invited to attend the final event of the IWT SymbioNets project on Tuesday 15 October at 13h30 at iMinds – Ghent.

This event will also serve as our 13th Wireless Community work meeting..

The main focus of the SymbioNets project was the development of networking solutions and service enablers to support advanced cross-layer/cross-network cooperation between independent co-located wired & wireless, homogeneous & heterogeneous networks.

To realize this, SymbioNets developed cooperative and cognitive networking solutions for the optimization and sharing of network resources between different devices, different technologies and different networks. The joint optimization of multiple heterogeneous (wireless) networks leads to improved network performance by optimizing all layers of the protocol stack.

Besides the main presentations, we will provide sufficient time for interactive poster and demo sessions. Afterwards, during the reception, you will have the opportunity to discuss valorization opportunities with the other industry partners while enjoying a nice drink and some snacks.

Detailed descriptions of the topics can be found below. Additional information can be found on this website.
