Evolution of FIRE: Facilities, Services and Collaboration Strategies for Sustainability (organized by AmpliFIRE, CI-FIRE, FUSION)

Responsible for the workshop: Hans Schaffers

Organisers: Hans Schaffer, Aalto University AmpliFIRE & Milon Gupta Eurescom,CI-FIRE & Jean-Charles Point - JCP-Consult FUSION projects

Location: Megaron Athens International Conference Centre (MAICC)

Meeting room: Apella

Time: 17 March 2014, 14:00-17:30 and Tuesday 18 March 2014, 9:30-13:00

Abstract: The key objective of this workshop is to explore ways of making FIRE facilities and services sustainable after EC funding has expired. FIRE has brought Europe several large-scale test beds and platforms addressing a broad range of technologies, applications and services for the Future Internet. These facilities enable research in key Future Internet technologies and have already supported advanced experiments proving that experimentally-driven research and innovation are key mechanisms for the development of the Future Internet.

From this point of departure, this workshop will discuss the envisaged pathways of FIRE towards sustainability, based on an analysis of its existing capabilities and resources, the current and future demand for FIRE testbed services, and the positioning of FIRE facilities within the Future Internet ecosystem.


Expected outcome(s): The workshop identifies and discusses opportunities for technical, infrastructural, service-related, business and organizational collaboration towards economic viability within as well as outside of FIRE, in particular addressing FIRE’s role in relation to other large-scale Future Internet initiatives as well as towards the demands of business players.

The future role of FIRE is explored as regards providing a platform for European SME innovation and business creation. The workshop targets potential providers of testbeds, FIRE projects, developers and operators of facilities from FIRE, the FI-PPP and EIT ICT Labs, Living Labs, national and regional testbeds, and users - or potential users - of such facilities, including SMEs and large enterprises


Agenda:

Monday 17 March 2014

14:00-15:30 Session 1: Market Demand and Requirements for FIRE Facilities

This session identifies the current and future demands and requirements from users of FIRE facilities and services, from e.g. large enterprises, SMEs, Future Internet initiatives, EIT ICT Labs and other. Speakers will represent current and future stakeholders of FIRE.

Moderator: Hans Schaffer, Aalto University, AmpliFIRE

Speakers

Florian Schreiner (Fraunhofer Fokus/EIT ICT Labs, FanTaaStic): ”Towards sustainable Future Internet testbeds for Europe's ICT education, research and innovation - Commercial roll-out of Testbed-as-a-Service” Maurizio Cecchi (Telecom Italia, XIFI): "FI-PPP and SME's demands to the utilisation of FIRE facilities and services"

Stefan Bouckaert (iMinds, AmpliFIRE): “Experimentation demands and expectations of Future Internet stakeholders: The iLab.t use case and implications for FIRE”.

DISCUSSION (45')

16:00-17:30 Session 2: The Role of FIRE and other Facilities for business-driven development of Internet Services & Applications

This session focuses on the evolving role of FIRE facilities and user services as platform for supporting innovation and business creation. Emphasis will be on SMEs. Whereas high technology startup types of SME have been users of and contributors to FIRE, commercial SMEs are as well potential users of experimental platforms during their product development phases, and FI-PPP facilities and more industrial testbeds are well-suited for deployment testing.


Moderator: Jean-Charles Point (JCP-C, FUSION)

DISCUSSION (45')

Tuesday 18 March 2014

09:00-10:30 Session 3: Collaboration Opportunities for the economic Viability of FIRE Facilities & Services

This session aims to explore collaboration opportunities between FIRE facility providers and a diversity of actors and initiatives in Europe and beyond. The session will present and discuss different aspects of these opportunities, including the underlying business models, requirements for economic viability, and the development path towards implementing concrete collaborations. Speakers will represent both representatives of FIRE facilities as well as potential collaboration partners and other stakeholders from industry, Future Internet initiatives, EIT ICT Labs, and national initiatives.


Moderator: Milon Gupta (Eurescom, CI-FIRE)

Speakers

Serge Fdida (UPMC, OpenLab, CI-FIRE): "The Collaboration Between FIRE and EIT ICT Labs"

Mauro Campanella (GARR): "Perspectives for collaboration between FIRE and GÉANT"

Wim Vandenberghe (iMinds, FED4FIRE): “Collaboration between FIRE and GENI".

DISCUSSION (45')


11:00-12:30 Session 4: Roadmap and Action Plan for making FIRE Facilities and Services sustainable

This interactive final session integrates the findings of the previous three sessions into a roadmap and action plan for FIRE sustainability. The basis of the roadmap is the future evolution of FIRE, including the development of the market, customers, facilities, services etc. The session will be organised as an interactive debate with the audience.

Moderator: Martin Potts (Martel Consulting, CI-FIRE, FUSION, AmpliFIRE)

Speakers

Paul Grace (IT Innovation, AmpliFIRE): "FIRE Roadmap towards 2020"

Interactive discussion with the audience on FIRE Roadmap towards 2020

SPECTRUM WARS, Project: CREW - Johann M. Marquez-Barja

Demo description:

Spectrum Wars is an interactive game for up to 4 players using software radios. Two teams compete to transfer as much data as possible wirelessly between two devices. Each team has a single transmitter and receiver. The game is played in a fixed bandwidth and teams can reconfigure the parameters of their transmission such as carrier frequency, bandwidth and power. A large display shows the frequency band in use, together with a waterfall plot of transmitted signals, their carrier frequencies, powers and bandwidths. The first team to transmit a set amount of data wins. Teams can choose to work offensively by creating interference for their competitors or defensively by avoiding interference and instead working around the transmissions of opponents. Spectrum wars has been developed using the open-source Iris software radio framework. It is freely available to be adapted, enhanced and expanded.

POSTER, Project: SOCIAL&SMART - Bruno Apolloni

Poster description:

The entire social network of facts underpinning Social&Smart project will be exhibited. The user sends a task request for a household appliance to the network and the network operates in remote the appliance. The user monitors the task execution and sends feedback to the network. If s/he's patient, s/he may realize how the network updates the list of instructions to the appliance (the recipe) in reaction to the feedback.

The exhibition will be rooted on a series of poster and runtime implementation activities.

The posters will explain the activities of the three layers of our architecture: 1) the social network (top layer). A functional block will illustrate its main functionalities. A schema will describe the related database. A pair of sentences will discuss the computationally intelligent part of the network. A file will illustrate a recipe (i.e. a complete list of machine instructions) for a household appliance 2) the middleware (intermediate layer). A functional block will illustrate its main functionalities. A set of masks will illustrate the interfacing functions, the translation of a recipe into a list of instructions compliant with the local environment, the emergencies’ management. 3) the floor level (the bottom layer). A series of commented pictures will show some of the interfacing boards and microcontrollers either invented or adapted to the project needs. Some among these boards will be also exhibited in hardware

The runtime activities concern instances of the Social&Smart transactions that will be instantiated by the attendees and executed by house appliances. Appliances will be: a bread machine, located in the stand, producing bread according the attendee requests (preferences included); a washing machine, located in the Milano lab, and remotely controlled and monitored ; a series of appliances, to be defined according to the project progress, located in the Cartif mockup (in Spain), which will be analogously operated in remote.

The demonstration requires an efficient, possibly wired, Internet connection and multiple electrical sockets. A screen (either tissue or LCD) would be suitable as well.

The pictures in the following page illustrate part of the involved hardware.
