Welcome to the 2009 ICTP-ITU School on Wireless ICT Low Cost Solutions in Developing Countries: Best Practices (Trieste, 16 February - 6 March 2009).

Training activities on digital radio have been carried out by the ARPL group at ICTP since 1996, and some 1800 participants from all the continents have attended. As a result of the training, a series of concrete ICT projects have been initiated, developed and successfully completed.

The School program is focused on innovative solutions in design and implementation of 2.4 and 5 GHz low-cost wireless local area networks and long-distance links (WiFi and WiMAX) not only interconnecting computers, but also offering data, audio, and video communications. Part of the school time is thus devoted to hands-on sessions on installation and measurements of wireless networks.

We hope that the 2009 School will contribute to advancing scientific development in academic and research institutions in Developing Countries, and it is up to the scientists and professors employed there to make use of information offered and to disseminate it further.

The School Directors,

Prof.Dr.Sandro Maria Radicella
Prof.Dr.Ryszard Struzak
