ICT Mobile and Communications Summit


Hoy me he enterado por casualidad, tras leer en la edición digital de El Diario una noticia aparecida el domingo pasado (que pasé por alto al leer la edición en papel), que el año que viene se va a celebrar en Santander el congreso ICT Mobile and Communications Summit, que este año 2008 se ha celebrado en Stockholm, Suecia. Según reza en su página inicial:

The ICT Mobile and Wireless Communications Summit (ICT-MobileSummit 2008) took place in the Innovative City of Stockholm. This was the seventeenth in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 600 delegates from industry and research to share experiences and research results, identify future trends, discuss business opportunities and identify opportunities for international research collaboration under the ICT Theme of Framework Programme 7 (FP7). It contributed to showcasing European research in the field, and positioning it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.

Me he recorrido por encima el contenido de la web y he descubierto que se organizó un workshop previo al inicio del congreso dedicado a las redes de sensores inalámbricos, tema que he tocado en el curso que he realizado en UIMP este mismo año. Uno de los temas concretos ha sido reunir los grupos de investigación punteros de Europa y Australia en este campo:

Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network Research on Opposite Sides of the Globe – Europe/SENSEI and Australia/ISSNIP

The workshop on “Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network Research on Opposite Sides of the Globe” gives a unique insight into research topics of two large research consortia, the ISSNIP consortium and the SENSEI consortium on the topic of Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks. For more details in relation to the content of this workshop, please contact the workshop organisers: Mirko Presser The University of Surrey, Technical Manager of FP7 SENSEI and Slaven Marusic, University of Melbourne, ISSNIP.

The ARC Research Network on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (ISSNIP) is the primary interface for sensor network research in Australia and consists of a network of more than 50 world leading local and international researchers from academia and industry, with a broader network of more than 100 affiliated researchers and students, as well as extensive links throughout Australia, the USA, Europe and Asia. The Research Network is part of an Australian Research Council initiative, created to facilitate increased inter-disciplinary collaboration across academia and industry in key research and development areas. ISSNIP provides the framework for this collaborative research, offering worldwide exposure for the work of Australian researchers and links to world leading expertise and resources, in order to address the related technical and scientific challenges in the application areas of environment, defence and healthcare.

The SENSEI consortium is composed of 9 companies, 2 SMEs, 2 research centres and 6 Universities, all based in Europe. The consortium was established to jointly work on wireless sensor and actuator network (WS&AN) technology and address the challenges of integrating WS&ANs into the Future Internet. The SENSEI consortium runs the SENSEI project as part of the 7th European Framework Programme on the topic of “The Network of the Future“.

Otro de los workshops interesantes ha sido el del proyecto MAGNET Beyond, sobre las redes ubicuas personales:

The workshop presents the concept of Personal Networks elaborated in MAGNET Beyond, FP6 project and highlight the major contributions and achievements towards the PN reality. PN presents a user centric networking paradigm that open endless possibilities for future ubiquitous communication in a personalized and secure manner. The presenters will share their views on the future aspects of Personal Networks.

Este proyecto también entra dentro de los temas que he tratado en el curso de la UIMP y también he visto en Internet que está relacionado con un proyecto de computación ubicua con tratamiento de información de contexto llamado e-sense.
