TUCAN3G, Wireless technologies for isolated rural communities: Publications

The European project TUCAN3G has created fertile ground for the preparation of a series of important publications that have been included either in journals or in Conferences during the project’s implementation. This fact proves the high quality of the project’s results that are very crucial especially for the rural and isolated areas of the Peruvian jungle, where pilot activities took place. The following lists present Journal and Conference publications linked to TUCAN3G project and prepared by its consortium. The files to be downloaded are in PDF format, and the papers are sorted by publication date. The confidential documents listed below are not available for downloading.
