2nd OAI Workshop

2nd OAI Workshop, EURECOM, France

Note: All the content of this page is tentative and will be finalized with the help of community.

Location: EURECOM, France

Dates: 17-20 May, 2016

Registration link: https://www.yesgolive.com/eurecom/oai-workshop-at-sophia-antipolis

Note: In order to be eligible for alliance member/student discounts, please register on the website (above) and send us email@openair_tech with your organization email address to verify that you belong to the alliance member organization. In case of students, please send us the scan of your valid ID or some other proof confirming you are a student.

Logistics Information: OAI-Workshop_logistics

The goal of this workshop is two-fold:

1. The goal of this seminar is to finalize the contributors and roadmaps of the alliance projects. An initial list of proposed alliance projects is given here (openair5G, openairCN). Please state your interest by emailing us @openair_tech in which alliance project you wish to contribute.

2. We are also proposing training sessions on openair5G and openairCN to jump start the community on alliance projects.

Note: The cost of the workshop is just to cover the logistics, catering, etc. However, there is a fee for the training sessions. For more information, see the registration link above. Due to the limited places in the workshop, we urge you to register quickly.
