On Oct. 15th, Arthur Sousa de Sena, PhD student at LUT and FIREMAN researcher, was awarded the prestigious Nokia Foundation grant for his research related to massive-MIMO NOMA networks. This grant is expected to support a research visit to the group of Prof. Papadias (FIREMAN technical coordinator) in Greece, to foster the already successful collaboration in advanced methods for data transmission (WP3 activities).

Congratulations, Arthur!

On Oct. 10th, FIREMAN participated in a joint workshop on Smart Technologies in Industry 4.0 organized by CHIST-ERA SOON project as part of the INTER-ENG conference.

Researchers involved in the two projects presented their so far obtained research outcomes and exchanged research questions that could involve knowledge transfer and future in-depth collaboration between the two projects.

On Sep. 2nd, FIREMAN organized a successful Special Session on Communication and Networking Algorithms for Cyber-Physical Systems in Industry 4.0, co-located with the IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC '20).

A keynote speech given by Majid Butt (Nokia Bell Labs) and four technical contributions were presented. Detailed information can be found here.

The FIREMAN organizers have already started the discussion of having a subsequent 2nd version in the context of the forthcoming PIMRC '21 in Helsinki, Finland, next year.

FIREMAN project coordinator, Prof. Pedro Nardelli, and principal investigator, Prof. Hirley Alves, delivered a tutorial in the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems (http://icps2020.fi/), virtually held on 10 June 2020.

The tutorial was entitled  “Machine-type communication in 5G and its application to build the energy Internet” and followed the recently published paper: P. H. J. Nardelli, H. Alves et al., "Energy Internet via Packetized Management: Enabling Technologies and Deployment Challenges," in IEEE Access, 2019 (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/abstract/document/8629864).
