Call 2015 Pre-announcement

The CHIST-ERA Call 2015, to be published in October 2015, will target research in the following topics:

User-Centric Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things (SPTIoT)

Terahertz Band for Next-Generation Mobile Communication Systems (TMCS)

The details of the research targeted in the call have been defined by the research community during the CHIST-ERA Conference 2015, an event that was open to all interested researchers.

The present Call 2015 Pre-announcement (see attached document below) gives an overview of the research themes that have emerged during the conference (see pages 2 to 4).

Anticipated Call deadline: 13th of January 2016

Researchers are encouraged to start discussing possible projects with prospective partners. The call will require that projects are submitted by international consortia with partners in at least three participating countries. Additional partners from other countries may be part of a consortium if they can secure their own funding.

Besides, we provide a Partner Search Tool for submitting Expressions of Interest (EoI) by filling-in a webform. All the EoI can be viewed here.
