Wireless Networking for Evolving & Adaptive Applications
Wireless Networking for Evolving & Adaptive Applications

EVA will tackle
challenges related to providing efficient communication in wireless networks and, more generally,
in all networks that are not already organized when set up, and consequently need to
evolve and spontaneously match between application requirements and the environment.
These networks can use opportunistic and/or collaborative communication schemes.
They can evolve through optimization and self-learning techniques. Every effort will be
made to ensure that the results provided by EVA will have the greatest possible impact on
The miniaturization and ubiquitous nature of computing devices has opened the way to
the deployment of a new generation of wireless (sensor) networks. These networks will be
central to the work in EVA, as EVA will focus on such crucial issues as power conservation,
connectivity, determinism, reliability and latency. Wireless sensor network (WSN)
deployments will also be a new key subject, especially for emergency situations (e.g. after a
disaster). Industrial process automation and environmental monitoring will be considered in
greater depth.
