Cloud-Network Slicing: Concepts, Benefits and Enablers

on 17-05-2024

... Join us for the IEEE Distinguished Lecture by Augusto Jose-Venancio Neto.

The lecture will occur in-person and online on May 17th, 02:30 – 04:00 p.m. at Instituto de Telecomunicações (Building 19 - amphitheater IT1), in Universidade de Aveiro campus.

Cloud-network slicing has emerged as a transformative paradigm in the realm of 5G, promising to revolutionize the way virtual and communication resources are allocated and managed. This talk delves into the fundamental concepts of cloud-network slicing, exploring our architecture, principles, and key technology enablers to set instances across core and RAN domains.

We will delve into the various benefits that cloud-network slicing brings to the table, including improved multi-tenancy, enhanced network flexibility, and customized service delivery. Additionally, we will discuss the enabling technologies and methodologies that facilitate the implementation of cloud-network slicing, such as network function virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), cloud computing, and predictive networking elasticity.

Overall, this talk aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of cloud-network slicing, its benefits, and the key enablers driving its adoption in modern network architectures. Attendees will gain insights into how cloud-network slicing can unlock new opportunities for innovation and efficiency in cloud computing and networking domains.

ManagiDiTH - Master of Managing Digital Transformation in the Health Sector

on 15-05-2024

... Master of Managing Digital Transformation in the Health Sector (ManagiDiTH) is a four-year project launched in January 2023. It is a Master's program integrated into the project ManagiDiTH, which is coordinated in IT by our researcher Octavian Postolache.

The program will be developed in a transnational and intersectoral project during 2023–2026 led by ISCTE – University Institute of Lisbon. The project consortium won the European Advanced Digital Skills competition of the Digital Europe program launched by the European Commission, managed by HADEA.

The project's objectives are developing training references for level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework in the digital health sector, creating a multidisciplinary learning ecosystem, and introducing a pedagogical model that prioritizes problem-oriented learning strategies supported by digital tools.

The consortium integrates the following partners: ISCTE – University Institute of Lisbon, Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Aristothelio Panepistimio Thessalonikis, Gustave Eiffel University / ESIEE Paris, Instituto de Telecomunicações, Whymob, Lda., Clinipower Finland Ltd, Mundiserviços – Companhia Portuguesa de Serviços e Gestão, Lda. All of these consortium partners will participate in developing the program using their innovative pedagogical and technical skills.

In addition to the eight main partners, there are several associated partners in the project: Health Cluster Portugal, Thessaloniki Women Association with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois”, Finnish Diabetes Association, European Network of Living Labs, The Union for Senior Services – Valli, Portuguese Red Cross, Adhd Hellas, Hovi Group Oy.

The application deadline is running until May 15th, 2024.
