Project Description:

This Amadeus project is a joint research program funded by the  Austrian Research Council and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The participants belong to the following institutions: Institut Eurécom, Supelec, ftw. (Forschungszentrum Telekommunikation Wien) and VUT (Technische Universität Wien). The proposed research focuses on the problem of advanced tools for futur wireless networks (OFDM, CDMA, MIMO, and ad-hoc networks). The complete project plan can be found here.

Project Duration:

01.01.2006 until 31.12.2007. The project was first funded for 2006, and extented for 2007. Two years are the maximum time period for this kind of projects.
