Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Nowadays, multiple wireless local area networks (WLANs) have been deployed in the same building of an institute including a company and a university. Usually, their wireless access-points (APs) have been independently managed and operated by different groups in the building such as departments or laboratories. As a result, a WLAN user host can detect signals from multiple APs, which may increase the interference and degrade the communication performance. Thus, the minimization of the number of active physical APs by aggregating the allocated APs in the field by introducing virtual APs becomes one of the major challenges in WLANs. In this paper, we formulate this {\em AP aggregation problem} for WLANs of aggregating the APs into the minimum number of active APs, and propose its heuristic algorithm that is composed of four phases. The effectiveness of our proposal has been verified through simulations in two instances.
