The FIA Aalborg consolidated report is also available [undefineddownload pdf]

Format of the workshop

The workshop will be split in 3 parts:

  1. Presentation of the standardization challenges landscape for Future Internet
  2. Brokering session allowing research workshop to expose their standardization activities or plans. Projects will be identified through a call of interest. The session will be moderated by a panel of SDO representatives.
  3. Panel session, to debate few question prepared in advance.

Problem Statement and Objectives of the workshop

Demanding usages such as smartcities are emerging and require increased interoperability levels between technologies, with the involvements of a wider set of stakeholders. As part of the Future internet, these contribute to the need and thus the raise of interest for (pre)standardisation activities.

The session will aim at identifying new strategic and operational activities to be pursued to fill the standardisation gap for Future Internet.

FIA standardisation Working group (undefined
Steering Committee representative: undefinedDidier Bourse (Alcatel-Lucent)

Target audience:

  • Future Internet research projects
  • Standardisation development organisations

Build on previous FIA sessions:

Conclusions from FIA session in Budapest (May 2011)
The session underlined the need to agree on future internet definitions and raise awareness of pre-standardisation efforts. The current status of standardisation is being documented by the FIA Standardisation Working Group. This mapping exercise requires collaboration between projects, project clusters and European Technology Platform activities. It has been recognised that future internet standards are made from myriad inputs and that direct contribution from projects is essential to achieve all these goals, although this could not happen without projects also understanding the business environment.

Conclusions from FIA session in Poznan (October 2011)
Creating synergies between projects require to 1. Collect the projects contributions and 2. Identify the possible synergies between intended contributions. Different existing and potential classifications have been shown. The need for a light and sustainable process has been underlined by the audience. As examples, validation rules should be set-up to validate the data or the source. Also, the level of use of a (pre)standard should be monitored to focus on the one of greater interest for the community.
