Welcome to the Mobile Multimedia Laboratory

The Mobile Multimedia Laboratory (MMlab) is performing research in the areas of Wireless Packet Networks and Mobile Communications, Internet Protocols and Applications, Security, Privacy and Trust, Mobile Multimedia, Quality-of-Service & Quality-of-Experience, Multimedia Multicast and Broadcast. MMlab is part of the Telecommunications Services Group of the Dept. of Computer Science of the Athens University of Economics and Business. The lab is headed by Professor George C. Polyzos.

The MMlab is always looking for good students and researchers to get involved in fascinating research projects with long term funding (from the European Commission, the European Space Agency and other sources). You are welcome to contact us for available positions in the areas and projects that we conduct research.
