SAREF4CITY Validation Workshop (Part I)
SAREF is a reference ontology for the Internet of
Things that has been published as an ETSI Technical Specification and includes
dedicated extensions to specific domains (currently energy, buildings and
environment). In 2017, a Specialist Task Force (STF) was requested by ETSI and
the European Commission to further extend SAREF to new domains, including Smart
Cities (https://portal.etsi.org/STF/stfs/STFHomePages/STF534). The STF will
result, among others, in an ETSI Technical Report that describes the
requirements for the extension of SAREF to Smart Cities (final draft planned
for June 2018) and an ETSI Technical Specification that specifies the extension
itself (final draft planned for February 2019).
To that end, the STF team initiated a number of interactions with relevant stakeholders in the smart city domain with the goal of 1) creating awareness about the STF and 2) collecting background information and requirements to be used to develop the SAREF extension.
In the smart city domain, the team has elaborated
a considerable number of requirements by performing a reverse engineering
process on existing standards, data models, ontologies, and data sets.
Before the publication of the Technical Report
with the requirements, the STF team is carrying out different initiatives to
validate such requirements with different stakeholders, such as this workshop that
will take place on June 4th, from 11:15 to 18:00 during the IoT Week
The workshop will be of a practical nature and is open to everyone interested in the
representation of smart city data using ontologies. And its goal is to
validate the current requirements of the SAREF extension for smart cities.
Work will start with a brief presentation of
the SAREF extension for smart cities and its requirements, and the idea is to
end the workshop with a curated set of requirements that support the different
use cases in the Smart Cities domain and that can be taken as input for the
SAREF extension. The workshop’s
participants are encouraged to submit their own use cases to the organizers in
advance, so that use cases from participants can be integrated in the
working materials. To make the workshop interactive, participants will be
divided into groups in which we will analyse the coverage of the current
requirements to the selected use cases.
