The technical meeting will be held in Patras, on February 28-29, 2012.
1st Open Call for Experiments for SmartSantander project has ended receiving 47 proposals from 12 different countries.
Developments of SmartSantnader project were presented by Ioannis Chatzigiannakis in the 3rd meeting of Peripheria (Networked Smart Peripheral Cities for Sustainable Lifestyles) - http://www.peripheria.eu/
The 1st FIRE Portfolio Update is intended for anyone who is interested in the FIRE initiative, the current topics being researched and the status of the testing facilities that are available for use by FIRE STREPs and beyond. It describes the current FIRE landscape of projects, the experiments that have been - and are being - performed on the facilities and also common topics being studied in the various Working Groups comprising representatives of the IPs within the Architecture Board. It supersedes the original "FIRE Portfolio Analysis" document that was produced by the FIREworks project in 2010. PDF

The electronic Call for Papers can be downloaded from http://www.futurenetworksummit.eu/2012/files/FutureNetworkSummit2012_CallforPapers.pdf Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 is the twenty-first in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 500 delegates from industry, government 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 will thus contribute to showcasing European research in the field, and position it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.

In collaboration with FIRESTATION, projects SmartSantander, CREW and OpenLab organise an information day that will take place in Brussels on 14 September 2011. The open calls are a perfect opportunity for researchers and experimenters to get involved in Future Internet Research and Experimentation in a very practical way. The calls are open to all applicants subject to the rules described in the applicable guides. More information can be found at http://www.ict-fire.eu/home/fire-calls/open-calls.html and http://www.ict-fire.eu/events/meetings/2ndfireopencallsinformationday.html Participation is free of charge but registration is compulsory. Registration deadline is 26 August 2011!!! Information day will be held at the premises of the European Commission and you will only be admitted if you are registered and carry a valid identity card or passport with you.
From 21st June till 24th June SmartSantander has organized its second General Assembly as well as the first Technical Review. The consortium showed to the EC the progress carried out during the first nine months of the project. All the aspects related to the capture of the requirements (WP1), architecture definition (WP2), IoT node deployment (WP3), service analysis (WP4) as well as sustainable exploitation (WP5) model were presented and discussed. In the second day an extensive demonstration embracing deployed IoT node infrastructure and the main platform integrated out of the different components coming from the SENSEI, and WISEBED projects and the USN platform from Telefónica was successfully shown. The demonstration showed all the aspects related to experimentation, platform management (including OTAP and MOTAP) and service provision (parking monitoring). All this work has been carried out three months before to the original scheduled. EC congratulated the consortium for its impressive work and the Commitment of the Santander City Council and Regional Government in making the project a success.
Call for participation senZations2011 August 29 - September 2, 2011, Kotor (Montenegro) Supported/co-organized by: FP7 SmartSantander (http://www.smartsantander.eu) - SmartSantander tutorial - how to use the platform and how to apply for funding available to run experiments FP7 HOBNET (http://www.hobnet-project.eu) The senZations summer school has become an annual event on the agenda of young researcher talents across Europe and other parts of the world. Covering in depth a range of advanced topics from wireless sensor networks to M2M to Internet of Things and their applications with support of excellent lecturers and senior researchers from academy and industry, senZations has attracted more than 250 students during the past five events. senZations offers a unique opportunity to learn first-hand from the leading European research projects about the latest developments and open challenges in an emerging area, that is expected to significantly impact our way of life and the way future business will be done in our economies. It combines lectures on fundamental and applied aspects of the Internet of Things with hands-on tutorials and experimentation, providing the participants with a solid understanding and experience to further advance research in this field. The aims of the summer school are to: - Survey fundamental and applied aspects of the Internet of Things - Present recent advances and identify important open research challenges anddirections - Provide hands-on experience for experimentally-driven IoT research on one of the leading European IoT research facilities - Allow establishing new contacts with other young researchers and experienced scholars from academia and…
The SmartSantander IoT Experimentation Survey aims for the IoT community and has the objective to capture requirements on IoT and WSN experimentation. The outcomes will be useful in establishing an expectation benchmark that can be used for validation of the current SmartSantander testbed, motivate requirements for extension of the testbed in the next development cycle and help shaping the first call for experiments. This survey consists of 13 questions and takes approximately 10 minutes. Find the Survey here
