Warsaw University of Technology (WUT)

Warsaw University of Technology (Politechnika Warszawska) is a research-intense, doctoral-level academic institution focused on undergraduate and graduate programmes almost exclusively in engineering and applied sciences. With over 30,000 students served by over 2,000 professors and instructors, WUT is the largest and the highest-ranking engineering university in Poland. There are seventeen departments/faculties covering almost all fields of engineering and applied science. Sixteen of these faculties are based on two urban campuses in the capital city of Warsaw, and one faculty in the ancient city of Płock in north-central Poland. WUT will enter the project with research teams from Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science (MiNI). MiNI is one of best IT-related faculties in the WUT with a strong mathematical background. The team from this faculty has experience in problems like modern architecture of internet systems, limitation of current internet capabilities, development of technologies and new protocols. They are familiar with actual state of development in these areas, and extremely interested in validation and testing of large-scale systems.

WUT has been actively involved in the FP6 Research Programme with more than 20 projects in the ICT fields. Moreover, WUT has strong experience in both PlanetLab and OneLab projects, since it became a PlanetLab member in December 2003, one of the fist universities in Central Europe. WUT has joined PlanetLab at quite an early stage of its evolution, contributing to their development and providing feedback about needed functionalities for this size of networking test bed. The experience of content delivery tests that have been deployed in TPNet may be exploited within the OneLabproject. WUT hosted the joint PlanetLab and OneLab European meeting in July 2007.

Role in the OneLab project:

Joining the project in its second phase (OneLab2), WUT is involved in WP7 Content and WP9 Benchmarking (as well as WP2 Operations and WP3 Dissemination).
