Our First collaboration with Morocco: Research Project WiMeCOM
WiMeCOM is a Moroccan project funded by the Institut de Recherche en Energie Solaire et Energies Nouvelles (
The overall objective of the WiMeCOM project is to develop hybrid wireless and wired smart metering solution.
The Communication Networks group of INESC-ID is collaborating specifically on modelling and optimization of a smart metering communication network solution integrating the Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) and Power Line Communication (PLC) technologies.
In the context of this project, INESC-ID hosted Ms Souhaima Stiri (M.Sc.) from MAScIR and INPT, during July 2019.
Her mission was to collaborate with the Researcher António Grilo to integrate the LoRaWAN and PLC models into an optimization framework based on a Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm.
This algorithm will be used to find suitable trade-offs between communication quality and the cost of the communications infrastructure. Feedback from real pilot deployments will later be used to refine the model and transform it into a powerful and reliable tool that can be used by Distribution System Operators (DSOs) for deployment planning.

IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2020
IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) 2020 will take place between the 24th and 28th of October at Alfândega Porto Congress Centre, in Porto.
ICST 2020 aims to supply a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners all over the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of Software Testing, Verification and Validation.
Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from 23rd to 27th November 2020.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
