The first SOCRATES workshop will take place on June 9th, 2009, as a pre-conference workshop of the ICT Mobile Summit 2009 conference in Santander, Spain. It is organised jointly with the FP7 project E3.
The goal of this public workshop is to disseminate the first results of the FP7 projects SOCRATES and E3. The program comprises presentations on the results of both projects, three invited talks and a presentation from the FP7 project EFIPSANS that will place the topic self-organisation in a broader networking perspective. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate discussions and feedback. Through interactions with the participants and the invited speakers, the consortia want to validate their views and approaches on self-organising methods for beyond 3G wireless networks.
The workshop addresses both academic researchers and engineers. It mainly aims at research responsibles, R&D engineers and technical developers involved in planning, deployment or operations & maintenance of beyond 3G networks, within telecom operators, telecom vendors and SMEs and large companies active in the telecom sector.
