Jacek Kibilda is awarded STSM Grant

Dr Jacek Kibiłda, CONNECT Research Fellow in Trinity College Dublin, has been been awarded a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) grant to work at the University Paris-Saclay. He will conduct research on new measures of service reliability for shared mobile networks for one month later this summer.

Short Term Scientific Missions are exchange visits aimed at supporting researcher mobility, strengthening research networks and fostering collaboration.

“I am looking forward to this experience as it is an opportunity to establish new partnerships and learn new techniques,” Jacek said. “I will be focusing on identifying the right performance metrics and AI techniques necessary to design for reliability in wireless networking.”

STSMs support the scientific objectives of the IRACON COST Action. This COST Action aims at scientific breakthroughs by introducing novel design and analysis methods for the 5th-generation (5G) and beyond-5G radio communication networks. Challenges include i) modelling the variety of radio channels that can be envisioned for future inclusive radio, ii) capacity, energy, mobility, latency, scalability at the physical layer and iii) network automation, moving nodes, cloud and virtualisation architectures at the network layer, as well as iv) experimental research addressing Over-the-Air testing, Internet of Things, localization and tracking and new radio access technologies.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework. Its mission is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities.

CONNECT is the world leading Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Future Networks and Communications. CONNECT is funded under the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres Programme and is co-funded under the European Regional Development Fund. We engage with over 35 companies including large multinationals, SMEs and start-ups. CONNECT brings together world-class expertise from ten Irish academic institutes to create a one-stop-shop for telecommunications research, development and innovation.
