Support to Future Internet research standardisation

Support to Future Internet research standardisation

From the research side, the relations between innovation and standardisation are being considered, as part of value chain. Creation of standards is a process of virtuous circle from concepts, models, systems and interoperability tests. Standardisation of research results will lead to exploitable products portfolio planning and competitiveness of industries. Standardisation even lead to innovation and is used as baseline for future research.

Reinforcing and accelerating the virtuous circle of standardisation has been of increasing interest in the past years and more especially in the field of Future Internet Research. It is now recognised that research based standards may need to follow a process that vary from the mainstream one: there is an additional need for lighter weight standards built through pre-standardisation / incubation processes and developed using agile inspired methods ensuring the highly valued standardisation characteristics. Such process will involve the experimental research with federated research testbeds, with user involvement, which are unique in the FP7 framework.

Interoperability standards are essential to ensure a level playing field in the cloud and grid space, which in turn drives competition and ultimately innovation. This Networking Session is a key opportunity to explore the current state of play and define top priorities moving forward.

A networrking session not to be missed as interoperability ultimately helps drive growth - the idea is to bring to the table as many grid & cloud demos as possible and SDOs at this session with the aim of working towards the delivery of a roadmap Grids and Clouds for Research and for

Public Services.

Application porting will strongly be affected by the availability of standards. Application developers can be reluctant to adapt their components to a specific platform if there is not a guaranteed support, at least in the medium term. By reducing the cost of migrating applications from one platform to another, this issue is reduced.

From the VENUS-C user scenario activity, we want to demonstrate the suitability of commercial and public Cloud platforms for research, and therefore we share the interest in this topic.

Definitely a very valuable session - especially with a view to the emerging paradigm of data intensive science. Without doubt, researchers heavily benefit form open cloud computing technologies and interoperability with other exisiting and emerging infrastructures such as GrIds and the future Internet.

With the launch of the EC-funded DCI projects and the growth of interest in Cloud computing over the last two years, this session is sure to be popular with participants at ICT2010 who wish to find out more on the topic and make important contacts to aid the process of improving the adoption of open standardis.

Standards are the core issues in any development so that evolution of present Internet to Future Internet can be smoothly realized for interoperability issues and multivendors active in the market to provision competitive advantages and innovations. MOMENT project took a pro-active initiative in launching an Industry Specification Group to promote project results. The results can be seen at under ISG MOI.

Broadcasting media internet: Platforms A strategy for the exploitation of the interleaved spectrum

Comm 2007/700 presents the European strategy concerning UHF spectrum. However several inaccuracies and errors are contained in it like (page 3): the locally unused spectrum (interleaved) is introduced as a “new product” due to DSO, even more as “important” complement to the digital dividend, or it is considered as identical to the term “white space spectrum” introduced recently in USA by the White Space Coalition

• The interleaved spectrum (channels) is the result, of any National Coverage Implementation and not a result of the DSO neither “important” complement to the spectrum dividend. It is the opposite

• The term “white space spectrum” is not identical to the European term “Interleaved TV channels” neither the European DSO is (not at all) identical to the American DSO

Our approach targeting to new innovative infrastructures in UHF avoids the irreversible loss of such an important spectrum that will result if full duplex cognitive devices will be adopted

I really like the notion of vertuous circle brought by Frank LE GALL, which is not a moral but a structural process to create a common ground facilitating private innovative intiatives ... :-)

In Switzerland, we are working with governmental agencies and Polytechnic as research institute to explore the ETHICAL part of workflow standardisation processes.

Do you think ethics on digital tools standardisation is a specific topic included in your networking session and projects ?

See more about how this topic can be included by looking at our contrbution to previous great EU project , here

Looking forward to meet you in the very interesting networking session.

Théo Bondolfi, Chairman institute for ethical ICT strategies

we would like to know more about your project proposals since we are looking for partners
