Title: Fast and accurate radio propagation models for indoor and
indoor/outdoor radio network planning and optimisation.

Supervisors: Guillaume Villemaud / Jean-Marie Gorce

Place: CITI Lab - INSA Lyon, France; and Ranplan Wireless Network Design
Ltd.- UK


In the framework of the iPLAN European project the aim of this thesis is to enhance the computational efficiency and to adjust the complexity-accuracy trade-off of the MR-FDPF (Multi-Resolution Frequency Domain Partial Flows) method for indoor radio coverage prediction. This method, particularly efficient for indoor propagation, is devoted to be implemented in a radio
network planning tool. This tool needs to propose all kind of modern radio link conditions: indoor, outdoor, indoor to outdoor, outdoor to indoor, for 3G/4G, WLAN or WMAN (WiMax), from macrocells to femtocells.

Thus, the study will contain four main parts:

-computational efficiency enhancement of the MR-FDPF method;
-implementation of statistical analysis of radio channel behaviour
rather than only considering mean power level;
-integration of our indoor propagation tool into a wide areas
simulation tool with other propagation methods such as ray-tracing in
collaboration with other partners;
-measurement campaigns and model calibration.

The PhD candidate will work the first year in the CITI Lab of INSA Lyon in order to propose all possible enhancements on the MR-FDPF method and will be associated to the SWING INRIA project team (at INSA Lyon, France). Then he will spend two years seconded in Ranplan Wireless Network Design Ltd, partnet of the iPLAN project (located in Luton, UK). Ranplan's R&D department is expected to launch an automatic planning tool, and the results of this work will contribute to this innovating tool.

Open PhD position (4 years, fully funded) in Information Retrieval at TU Delft

26.7.09 |

Multimedia Information Retrieval Lab at Delft University of Technology,
the Netherlands, offers a PhD position funded by the European Union in
the project "PuppyIR - Information Retrieval for Children".

Project Summary

PuppyIR (a new project funded by the EU 7th Framework) will provide an
open suite of components that can be used by system designers to tailor
IR systems for the specific needs of children. Current Information
Retrieval (IR) systems are designed for adults: they return information
that is unsuitable for children, present information in lists that
children find difficult to manage and make it difficult for children to
ask for information. PuppyIR will develop new interaction paradigms that
allow children to express their information needs simply and have
results presented in an intuitive way. It will develop Information
Services that can summarise content for children, moderate information
for children, help children safely build social networks and
intelligently aggregate for presentation to children.

More information about the project and its participants can be found at:
More information about Multimedia Information Retrieval Lab:

Role in Project

The PhD student in Delft studies the retrieval models and their
implementation to support the interfaces and interaction styles
specialized for children's behaviour when accessing information online
(developed by other project participants). The student contributes
solutions in the areas of multimodal presentation technology, text and
multimedia content mining, and natural language processing of children's
texts. Specifically, the Delft contribution concentrates on a query
assistance module based on entity retrieval and expert finding
approaches, social network analysis, and, moderated discovery of
information guided by opinion detection. Research prototypes are made to
extend and exploit the PuppyIR open source framework. The PhD student
also participates in the tasks to identify what evaluation measures make
sense for evaluation of search tools for children, and contributes to
the development of test collections for the system-oriented evaluation
of search algorithms for children.

Requirements for the PhD student

* Degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Computational
Linguistics or Cognitive Science
* Strong technical background in Machine Learning and/or Information
* Excellent programming skills
* Good command of the English language
* Sincere interest in learning about how to adapt search technologies to
the cognitive abilities of children

Appointment and Salary

The full-time appointment is temporary for four years. The starting
salary is ˆ 2042 gross per month increasing to a maximum of ˆ 2612 gross
per month in the fourth year. Moreover, an 8% bonus share (holiday
supplement) and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% is provided annually, as
well as excellent secondary benefits. The preferable starting date is
1st September 2009.

How to apply

Applications should be sent by e-mail and include the following
documents (in English):

Kaltim Salurkan Beasiswa Rp94,241 Mrilia

Samarinda, Gubernur Kaltim, H Awang Faroek Ishak menegaskan penyaluran beasiswa dan dana stimulan harus dirasakan merata oleh warga Kaltim hingga ke pelosok daerah. Jangan sampai ada anggapan hanya warga Samarinda atau daerah tertentu saja yang mendapat bantuan tersebut.

Penegasan itu disampaikan, Awang kepada sejumlah wartawan di Ruang Rapat Gubernur, Senin (11/5), terkait soal penyaluran anggaran bantuan sosial, khususnya beasiswa bagi warga Kaltim yang akan menempuh pendidikan dasar hingga strata tiga (S3) baik di dalam maupun luar daerah atau ke luar negeri.

Diakuinya selama ini ada anggapan kurang baik, karena bantuan sosial, khususnya yang terkait soal beasiswa hanya dinikmati oleh warga Samarinda atau daerah tertentu yang memperoleh informasi tersebut.

"Pada pemerintahan saya sekarang penerimaan beasiswa diupayakan dapat merata hingga ke pelosok daerah sehingga pengajuan dapat dilakukan secara berjenjang baik dari sekolah dan dinas pendidikan di masing-masing 14 kabupaten/kota sehingga program beasiswa ini bisa dinikmati secara merata," ujarnya.

Dia menyebutkan pada 2009/2010, Pemprov Kaltim mengalokasikan anggaran beasiswa mencapai Rp94.241.860.000 yang diharapkan mampu memberikan bantuan kepada 24.649 penerima yang berasal dari 14 kabupaten/kota.

Anggaran tersebut merupakan bagian dari komitmen pemerintah untuk menganggarkan biaya pendidikan mencapai 20% dari total APBD Kaltim yang telah disepakati bersama dengan DPRD Kaltim, Pemkab/Pemkot beserta DPRD masing-masing.

Dengan upaya tersebut diharapkan dalam beberapa tahun ke depan peningkatan sumber daya manusia (SDM) Kaltim akan lebih baik seiring dengan tuntutan zaman yang terkembang, terutama teknologi di segala bidang.

"Peningkatan SDM merupakan kebutuhan yang tidak bisa ditawar-tawar lagi, karena ke depan pembangunan Kaltim sangat membutuhkan SDM memadai sehingga mampu mengejar ketertinggalan dengan daerah lain," kata Awang.

Dalam kesempatan itu, Awang menyebutkan dari total anggaran Rp94.241.860.000 itu, terdiri atas penyaluran melalui Biro Binsos Rp70 miliar, melalui Dinas Pendidikan Nasional Kaltim Rp15.363.000.000 yang diperuntukan bagi beasiswa pendidikan guru untuk jenjang kesarjanaan (S1).

Ditambah Rp8.878.860.000 untuk bantuan stimulan dan beasiswa bagi pelajar dan mahasiswa.

Dari total angaran Rp94.241.86.000 itu akan diberikan kepada 24.649 penerima yang terdiri atas 9.566 pelajar untuk jenjang pendidikan dasar dan menengah. Selanjutnya 6.956 orang mahasiswa program profesi jenjang S1 dan diploma.

Selain itu juga diberikan kepada 1,589 mahasiswa Strata dua (S2) dan program spesialis, 487 mahasiswa strata tiga (S3), beasiswa untuk 5.049 guru untuk menempuh pendidikan S1 keguruan.

Beasiswa untuk 102 PNS dan Beasiswa penghargaan bagi pelajar atau mahasiswa yang memiliki prestasi tingkat provinsi, nasional maupun internasional.(hmsp4).

2009 Asia Pacific Human Development Academic Fellowship


From: Happy Tarumadevyanto

Context and Objective

The human development approach puts people at the centre of development. It recognizes economic drivers for change but goes beyond them to raise issues of enlarging human capabilities and expanding people’s choices. The objective of the Academic Fellowship is to encourage young Ph.D. students from the Asia Pacifific region to analyse critical development issues from a human development perspective, contributing to development theory, applications and policies. Thus, the Fellows are expected to push the frontiers of research on human development while analyzing, through the human development lens, issues directly or indirectly related to human development. The research must focus on a well-defifined aspect of human development under the theme selected

Please see our brochure on “Human Development Fellows” for information on 2005-2008 recipients of Fellowships:

http://www2. about_us/ fellowship. php

Theme – Climate Change and Human Development

Human development is about expanding human potential and enlarging human freedom. Climate change is a human development challenge, as it threatens to erode human freedoms and limit choice and plunge large numbers into poverty and hardship.

Climate change is hampering efforts to deliver the MDG promise as it undermines international efforts to combat poverty and exacerbates already existing inequalities. Those, in turn, can result in an increase in conflict over sharing natural resources. Climate change is in fact an increasingly powerful driver of wider inequalities between and within countries, also between women and men.

Climate change can result in increased frequency of extreme weather events, flooding, storms, drought, increases in sea temperatures, and melting of glaciers, etc., which effect negatively agriculture and health/nutrition. This has negative implications on the livelihood of poor and vulnerable communities who depend largely on agriculture and natural resource management. In particular, women are affected in their roles of food producers and providers, guardians of health, and care givers. Reduced employment opportunities, for example for women working in agricultural fifields, constitute a net loss in income which leads to a loss in savings, making it even harder for households to cope with disasters.

The magnitude of this long term challenge can be assessed considering that an additional 1.8 billion people are expected to face water stress by 2080, with large areas of Central Asia, northern parts of South Asia and northern China facing a grave ecological crisis as a result of glacial retreat and changed rainfall patterns. Up to 330 million people in coastal and low-lying areas are expected to be displaced through flflooding and tropical storm activity. In the Asia Pacific region, in particular, over 70 million people in Bangladesh and 22 million people in Viet Nam could be affected by global warming-related flflooding.

What are the mechanisms through which the ecological impacts of climate change affect the poor? Are there examples of good practices to ensure climate and human security?

Have climate change and other environmental concerns been integrated in development planning in the context of environment protection and sustainable development? What has been the effectiveness of policies introduced? What is a possible agenda to promote human development and climate security? These are some of the questions that could be addressed.

The Fellowship

The UNDP Human Development Academic Fellowship for Asia Pacific carries an award of US$ 10,000. The students will be required to submit to UNDP a copy of their fifinal approved dissertation. In addition, Fellows may be expected to present their work in workshops/seminars and other events arranged by UNDP (travelrelated costs will be covered separately).

The thesis will acknowledge UNDP’s support by saying: “The author acknowledges the financial support received from the UNDP Asia Pacific Human Development Academic Fellowship for the research.”

MSc MMD scholarships
In the 2006 - 2008 period, 9 talented students from outside the EER received financial support from our MMD Study Fund. For the 2009 curriculum year, 6 talented non-EER students have been selected that receive full scholarships covering all study and living costs. These students come from Turkey, India, Ethiopia, and Zambia.

For the 2010 curriculum year, we will also select 6 non-EER students that will receive a full scholarship. Candidates for the MMD scholarship however must apply before 1 December 2009 and thereby can also apply for HFP or NFP fellowships (deadlines 1 February and 1 March 2010 respectively).

PhD positions in the NCMLS graduate school
Approximately 160 PhD students are part of the Nijmegen Centre for Molecular Life Sciences graduate school. Each year, more than 40 PhD positions become available. MSc MMD graduates are prime candidates for these PhD positions, which have been written by one of the 40 Principal Investigators of the NCMLS.

Personal PhD grants
A successful research career starts when a masters student writes his/her own research project. The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre has provided 3 PhD grants for the best projects written by Molecular Mechanisms of Disease (MMD) or Biomedical Science (BMS) students that started their masters in 2007. The selected students will start their projects in September of 2009. Likewise, 3 PhD projects have been reserved for MMD and BMS students who have started their masters in 2008.

For the students starting their MMD or BMS masters in 2009 and thereafter, 6 PhD projects will be available on yearly basis.

Students who want to apply for (almost) full scholarships such as HSP, NFP and MMD Study Fund should send in their application before 1 December 2009 (to start in September 2010).
