Prof. Tad Matsumoto, Information Theory and Signal Processing Laboratory, has been appointed as an External Advisory Board Member of an EU FP7 Project, Dense Cooperative Wireless Cloud Network (DIWINE)
[About DIWINE Project]
DIWINE is one of the European Union's FP7 Projects. The goal of the project is to develop technological basis for reliable and robust communications that can achieve extremely high energy and spectrum efficiencies in environments where users/nodes are highly densely populated. Massive users/nodes have to cooperate with each other to achieve extremely high energy and spectrum efficiencies while guaranteeing reliable and robust communications. Creating new techniques to achieve this goal is the objective of the DIWINE project.
[Expected Roles of External Advisory Board]
Obviously Japan is not a EU member country, which means that we can provide comments, suggestions, and even criticism from unbiased and neutral standpoint. This is the expected role to be played by the external board members, for which the members are required to have an in-depth look at the project results, participate in the meetings, and evaluate the mid-term status and final results.
As noted above, since the roles to be played by the external advisory board is very important for the success of the project, the members are selected from among those experts whose research expertise is exactly within the project scope.
Information Theory and Signal Processing Lab in JAIST is conducting a lot of research work related to the DIWINE project. Prof. Matsumoto's appointment to the external advisory board is because of their recognition of the high quality research conducted by his laboratory.
Prof. Matsumoto states that this appointment is an unparalleled opportunity for JAIST to further emphasize the excellence of the activities of his laboratory through making contributions to the European community, which does lead to even higher recognition of JAIST, as an excellent core university in Japan. He finally expressed great appreciations to the contributions made by his students as well as his laboratory graduates.
