As data becomes the new oil of the economy and a key asset to address societal challenges like mobility, energy, carbon-neutral cities and manufacturing, the EU must strive for a leading position in the data economy and cannot afford to have the data of its businesses, public sector and citizens stored and exploited from largely outside its borders. A strategy for on World-leading Data and Computing Technology is at the heart of the European policy strategy for

Massive growth of devices and systems connected to the Internet raises technology and policy challenges on a new scale. With an ever more heterogeneous and complex environment of IoT, these connected objects generate large data volumes. This massive data feeds the data economy and opens up new business opportunities. Currently, the majority of IoT revenues are based on cloud-based services as a dominant economic model for IoT business models. Will it be the case in the next decade?T...

The IoT, edge and cloud computing technologies are likely to be global by design. A technology that is developed by focusing only the specific requirements of a regional market may face difficulties to be globally adopted. International collaboration allows researchers to exchange knowledge and combine perspectives to solve challenging problems, often of transversal nature. Nowadays, with a growing number of global challenges such as climate change, infectious diseases, energy and sustaina...

Introducing data spaces into society makes us designers of a new world exploiting the sharing of data in a totally new way. As designers, we need to know what we are doing, business activities will not be the same as before, business processes will be re-engineered, and new skills are necessary to build data ecosystems. This track will bring together leading initiatives that are paving the way for what could become functional implementations of European-governed data sharing spaces. We want t...

Between smart machines, at the low end, and artificial systems with own legal or even ethical status, at the high end - that is where Artificial Intelligence is being placed in the public discourse.There is much of uncertainty about chances and constraints, opportunities and limitation - but common sense of the large potential of industrial AI.To get the most out of it, good balance of high expectations and subtle concerns is worthwhile. This comes down to the trustworthiness...

Water is the source of life. While some parts of the world can access water easily and at an economical rate, others pray for water consumption on a daily basis as they face water scarcity regularly. This irregularity in the water supply is troubling numerous lives across the world and threatening the healthy life for our future generations. In such situations, immediate actions are required to be taken. Here, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a one-stop solution that has the capability of a...

The expansion of the IoT and edge computing landscape has brought opportunities but also new challenges. Standards have an essential role in the IoT and edge computing systems. Having a roadmap of IoT standardization can enhance the technical issues that have to be addressed and resolved. The role of standardization in interoperability solutions is key, both by allowing a formalised support to various implementations, and by ensuring a consolidation of the options available so that the int...

The tutorial will introduce the idea of semantic interoperability and the use of ontologies. Participants will learn what an ontology is and how it can be used. A focus will be on reusing and extending existing ontologies,e.g. SAREF, and getting experience on finding the right ontologies for a given purpose in an ontology catalogue. Finally, ontologies will be used to develop a semantic application for one application domain,e.g. smart home, which will then be extended to semantically interop...

The interoperable testbed federations permit to test and use new technological developments linked to the Internet in real conditions. The assessment of the scalability of such recent developments can be done in federated and interoperable testbeds. New use cases can be elaborated and implemented in interoperable testbed federations through realistic experiments. The federation and the interconnection of different testbeds are done through standardized open APIs which are currently in phas...
