ICT 2010

Canada-EU Research Collaboration

T 008, 29/09/2010 (9:00-10:30)

Canadian delegates representing government, academia and industry will present an overview of their research as well as opportunities for collaboration with European partners.

This session provides the chance to meet with some of Canada’s leading ICT researchers and to learn about potential co-operation opportunities. The objective is to create a platform on which to gather together players who are keen to collaborate. European-Canadian partnerships have proved successful in previous Framework Programmes, and the organisers are confident that both parties can continue to count on committed and highly skilled professionals working together in an international environment.

(Ottawa) representatives will be demonstrating WiFi-based cognitive radio(CR) technology. CRC is interested in discussing collaborations related to CR with EU universities and companies in an effort to add momentum to the implementation of testable CR systems such as cognitive femtocells, adaptive urban ISM networks, etc. We are also collaborating with Canadian university and private sector researchers on such topics as Radio Resource Management and next generation rural wireless and are looking forward to discussions at ICT with EU organizations having similar interests.

The Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta has a proven academic reputation and has established projects with both academic and industrial partners in several European countries, e.g., Germany, Spain and France. We seek to expand our European presence by developing projects with other institutions, both academic and industry-oriented, as well as develop programs for exchanging graduate students and faculty, with multi-lateral funding. Our faculty members have wide interests and proven excellence in several areas, including artificial intelligence, reinforcement learning, computer games - both entertainment and serious games, multimedia and graphics, software engineering - especially service-oriented architectures, vision and robotics applied to the resource extraction industries, high performance computing, databases and data mining, and computer networks - especially sensor networks.
