Personal data protection is a fundamental right. However, many companies routinely collect a growing number of personal data on EU residents and trade them as a commodity. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been adopted to better protect personal data and data subjects’ rights. The strong penalties of the GDPR now constitute a strong incentive and catalyst for making data processing comply with the regulation.Several solutions are merging from the research to support ...

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 data interoperability in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT) has several issues to be solved by the research community. For instance, the large amount of data, the numerous different data models and the data collection at high speed are key challenges to address by the different organizations working in the domain of IoT data interoperability. Different dimensions of IoT data interoperability exist like semantic interoperability, syntacticalinteroperability and the object abstr...
