The workshop will take place on 3 November 2023, in the context of IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking!
Beyond 5G (B5G) applications and services offer unprecedented opportunities for innovation and progress. Nonetheless, achieving such a vision requires a new breed of intelligent mechanisms, protocols and autonomous architectures capable of truly taking advantage of the entire edge-to-cloud computing spectrum.

In particular, cross-domain scenarios, which include multi-cloud and multi-provider, are mostly comprised of heterogeneous technological domains requiring intelligent, efficient and close coordination among all the parts. Such a federated and collaborative view has been set as the path forward for unlocking the required automation and flexibility and achieving the extreme requirements and constraints of such next generation of applications. In that sense, this workshop intends to cover four key strands:

Cross-domain edge-to-cloud continuum management.
Cloud continuum for B5G services, applications, and enablers.
AI nativeness in cloud-continuum: This strand focuses on the network and service intelligence.
Privacy, security, and trust in cross-domain cloud continuum

Concertation and Consultation Meeting of EUCLOUDEDGEIoT

Our Project Coordinator, Professor Carlos Enrique Palau from Universitat Politècnica de València UPV and Vasilis Pitsilis from NCSR “DEMOKRITOS” presented insights of our project during the Concertation and Consultation Meeting of EUCLOUDEDGEIoT in Brussels! The meeting took place on 10th & 11th of May 2023.

The blurring barriers between Cloud and Edge computing are giving birth to a computing continuum where services and data must be managed and secured efficiently. Especially with new trends like the Metaverse, the demand for (hybrid) cloud computing services and edge computing is expected to skyrocket. As recent studies suggest, new data processing needs are appearing at the edge. This not only for reducing latency but also to ensure data availability and privacy protection.  Running and managing data analytics and AI where it is more efficient and effective is to be supported in the Cloud-Edge-IOT continuum.

Advancing the IoT can avoid skyrocketing communication and storage costs, energy consumption and produce benefits for citizens and businesses thanks to the integration of AI and Machine Learning. 

In addition, an open ecosystem built around Open Source and Open Standards is key to unleashing the potential of the European industry in driving green and digital transformation while preserving EU strategic autonomy. Software defined infrastructures based on Open Source and Open Standards will support the next step in the Cloud-Edge-IOT continuum while preventing lock-in and favouring a competitive economy for the benefit of EU citizens.

These trends have called for a shift towards the technical and business convergence of the so-far formally separated Cloud, Edge and IoT domains, towards an open Cloud, Edge and IoT Computing Continuum

In the recent years, the European community of researchers and innovators at work on the next generation Cloud, Edge and IoT computing has been growing in relevance, diversity and impact. For Europe to ensure its technological sovereignty and ground the vision of a computing continuum as the backbone of an open and inclusive society, it is necessary to overcome fragmentation, bring together organisations and individuals from different communities and leverage Open Source.The Concertation and Consultation on Computing Continuum: From Cloud to Edge to IoT meeting is a 2-day physical event organised within the context of the European, Cloud, Edge and IoT Continuum initiative by the OpenContinuum consortium in close collaboration with the UNLOCK-CEI and SW Forum projects and guided by the  European Commission DG CNECT E.2 and E.4 Units.

Statement concerning LLMs

Recognizing developing issue that affects all academic disciplines, we would like to state that, in principle, papers that include text generated from a large-scale language model (LLM) are prohibited, unless the produced text is used within the experimental part of the work.

The Internet of Things is a technology which is rapidly emerging around the world. IoT applications include: smart city initiatives, wearable devices aimed to real-time health monitoring, smart homes and buildings, smart vehicles, environment monitoring, intelligent border protection, logistics support. The Internet of Things is a paradigm that assumes a pervasive presence in the environment of many smart things, including sensors, actuators, embedded systems and other similar devices. Widespread connectivity, getting cheaper smart devices and a great demand for data, testify to that the IoT will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. The business models of various industries are being redesigned on basis of the IoT paradigm. But the successful deployment of the IoT is conditioned by the progress in solving many problems. These issues are as the following:

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.
