Software Centric & Autonomic Networking (SCAN) group

The Software Centric & Autonomic Networking (SCAN) group is a pioneering lab in the Dept. of Informatics & Telecommunications of the National &Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA). SCAN has been involved in numerous EU and national projects (H2020 5Growtth, 5GCroCo, Fed4FIRE+, 5GinFIRE, FP7 METIS, Privacy Flag, FIspace, SmartAgriFood, SPECIFI, UNIVERSELF, LiveCity, E3, Self-NET, SACRA, CONSERN, Where2, FP6 E2RI, II, LIAISON, MOBIVAS, EURO-CITI, VIDEO-GATEWAY, BROADWAY, POLOS, ANWIRE) and has acquired technical and management skills in the areas of Mobile/Wireless Communications, Advanced Applications and Services, Self-organising, Reconfigurable and Cognitive Radio Systems, and Green communications. SCAN researchers have been actively striving for wide-area dissemination of research results through IEEE, ETSI AFI, ETSI RRS, IEEE P1900, UMTS Forum, 3GPP, DMTF, and TMF. The SCAN Lab operates under the supervision of Ass. Prof. Nancy Alonistioti.
