As we explained during the EUCloudEdgeIoT launch event (February 8th) one of the goals of Task Force 3 (Architecture) is to develop a shared taxonomy for all European projects and initiatives in our field of expertise. The idea is that everyone uses the same words to refer to the same things, eliminating ambiguities and duplication of terminology and being as specific as possible. EUCloudEdgeIoT will process your inputs and provide the European Union with this commonly agreed taxonomy

So, this workshop gathered representatives of EU MetaOS projects to work collaboratively on the development of a common standardised taxonomy for all MetaOs European projects. The workshop held online and lasted 2 hours, on April 4th.

Cognitive Cloud Continuum Ecosystems: Theory and Practice, Honolulu, Hawaii, January 3-6, 2024 – part of the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)), Honolulu, Hawaii, January 3-6, 2024. HICSS57 Minitrack co-organised by aerOS and ASSIST-IoT projects.

Call for papers is now open. Deadline submission June 15, 2023 | 11:59 pm HST.

Cognitive Cloud is an enhanced Cloud-Fog-Edge system that is capable of sensing its environment, learning from it, and opportunistically and dynamically adapting its computational loads to the user intents. Here, the core enabling technologies, for management of resources, services and data are AI/ML techniques, which infuse the cognitive aspects into the continuum.

This minitrack intends to solicit papers that discuss the theoretical and practical aspects of Cognitive Cloud Ecosystems from a system perspective. Topics of interest include:

Architectures for the Cognitive Cloud for systems that are user-aware, self-aware and (semi-)autonomous; address the need for real-time capable solutions; and solve performance challenges, such as data streaming and
filtering near/at the edge, overcoming latency and network constraints
Service mesh networking that controls service-to-service communication across cognitive cloud ecosystem
Orchestration of (sub)systems in the Cognitive Cloud, possibly subdivided into orchestration of resources, services, and data (including zero-touch approaches)
Use of distributed AI across the Cognitive Cloud to make it intelligent
Interconnection of Cognitive Clouds with Data Spaces
Security, privacy and trust (likely, by design) in a multi-tenet de-centralized systems, possibly with no single point of governance
Interoperability across the Cognitive Cloud Ecosystems to cope with the increased complexity of vast numbers of heterogeneous devices, while supporting demands for data sharing combined with the demand for protection of privacy
Role of intelligent devices, drawing from applicable results in micro/nano/bio technologies, including resource-aware hardware/software concepts, low power processor platforms integrating computing, networking, storage and acceleration elements, new communication schemes and topologies that range from the cloud continuum towards mesh, and securing computing and communication at device level with constrained resources
Tactile/contextual Internet of Things based on human-centric sensing/actuating, augmented/virtual reality and new service capabilities such as integration with parallel and opportunistic computing capabilities, neuromorphic and contextual computing.
Energy aware systems from the perspective of systems integration for efficient deployment of services and use of resources in the Cognitive Cloud
Strategies for the deployment of hyper-distributed applications in the Cognitive Cloud from services description to dynamic reorganization of the deployment
Extreme data processing applications and Frugal AI in the cognitive cloud
Applications of Cognitive Cloud including implementation of ecosystems, pilots, lessons learned, barriers, etc.

The European Commission is requesting all the community members to give their ideas for the next 2025-2027 research programme.

Give your thoughts regarding:
Which challenges you had to overcome in your project?
What research priorities will lead to more successful research?
How would you define a clear research framework for the near future?
What research gaps in the current Work Programme would you like to see covered in Horizon Europe 2025-2026?
What suggestions do you have for expanding the research areas in Horizon Europe 2025-2026?
What would you like to see as support from the CSAs?

The deadline is on April 30th. You may find the survey online here: https://eucloudedgeiot.eu/call-for-expression-of-interest/
