EU-IoT Final Event

The final event of EU-IoT, took place on March 30. The event was based on the achievements of EU-IoT community and the upcoming activities. EU-IoT has been a vital accelerator for the European IoT ecosystem, supporting the development of synergies, fostering strategic coordination among Next Generation Internet of Things (NGIoT) projects and related initiatives, and promoting the adoption of IoT solutions. As the project comes to a close in March 2023, this event provides an opportunity to reflect on the achievements and lessons learned and explore the future of IoT in Europe.

EU-IoT Final Event: From IoT to Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum – Takeaways and Transition to the New Paradigm

3rd International Workshop on Advances on Privacy Preserving Technologies and Solutions co-organised by aerOS project!

This workshop aims to strengthen security and privacy through research and relevant activities in the models and design of secure, privacy-preserving and trust architectures, investments in cyber-defense, data analyses, fusion platforms, protocols, algorithms, services, and applications for next generation systems and solutions. We especially encourage security and privacy solutions that employ innovative machine learning techniques to tackle the issues of inspecting large data volumes, cyberattacks, and variety problems that are systemic in IoT platforms, theoretical and practical challenges related to the design of privacy-preserving AI systems and algorithms and will have strong multidisciplinary components, including soliciting contributions about policy, legal issues, and societal impact of privacy and affect the cyber risk of the participating entities.
Call for Papers is up to May 31, 2023. The event will take place on August 29 – September 01, 2023 in Benevento.

aerOS Project will be present through a booth at DEFEA 2023 on May in Athens.

Metropolitan Expo is Greece’s most contemporary venue and one of the largest and most functional centres for congresses, events, exhibitions and conferences in SE Europe which has achieved Covid Shield Certification by TUV Austria. With this achievement Metropolitan Expo Centre is being safeguarded and showcased as the largest, the most advanced and the safest exhibition centre in Greece fully in compliance with the European standards and practices. Paramount consideration of Metropolitan Expo Centre administration continues to be the safety and well-being of every exhibitor, visitor and personnel alike, fortifying its functioning with the achievement of the aforementioned certification.

Metropolitan Expo exhibition centre is located at Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” just 2km from the main terminal building and the Metro Subway station.

“Cloud-Native Workload Orchestration at the Edge: A Deployment Review and Future Directions” Journal Paper

The aerOS journal paper entitled “Cloud-Native Workload Orchestration at the Edge: A Deployment Review and Future Directions” was accepted in the MDPI, Sensors Journal, Volume 23, Issue 4.

Cloud-native computing principles such as virtualization and orchestration are key to transferring to the promising paradigm of edge computing. Challenges of containerization, operative models and scarce availability of established tools make a thorough review indispensable. Therefore, the authors have described the practical methods and tools found in the literature as well as in current community-led development projects, and have thoroughly exposed the future directions of the field. Container virtualization and its orchestration through Kubernetes have dominated the cloud computing domain, while major efforts have been recently recorded focused on the adaptation of these technologies to the edge. Such initiatives have addressed either the reduction of container engines and the development of specific tailored operating systems or the development of smaller K8s distributions and edge-focused adaptations (such as KubeEdge). Finally, new workload virtualization approaches, such as WebAssembly modules together with the joint orchestration of these heterogeneous workloads, seem to be the topics to pay attention to in the short to medium term.

EUCloudEdgeIoT’s – “Market and Sectors” Workshop

aerOS project participated at the EUCloudEdgeIoT’s – Task Force 5 “Market and Sectors” Workshop. It was an online workshop where all related partners presented fundamental insights about their projects. Also, at this workshop Anastasios Gogos presented the basic elements of our Athens use case

EUCloudEgdeIoT official launch

The official launch of the EUCloudEgdeIoT took place on 8th of February, and aerOS project was present! In this introductory meeting participants had the chance to meet the coordination team and the new Task Forces!

loud and edge computing are essential technologies in a computing continuum to ensure data is managed more efficiently – closer to the originating source rather than transmitting raw data to data centres. As recent studies suggest, data processing is moving closer to the edge.

Thus, advancing the IoT can reduce communication and storage costs, energy consumption and produce benefits for citizens and businesses thanks to the integration of AI and Machine Learning.

These trends call for a shift towards the technical and business convergence of the so-far formally separated Cloud, Edge and IoT domains.

In this context, the European Cloud Edge IoT Continuum aims to realise a pathway for the understanding and development of the CEI Continuum by promoting cooperation between a wide range of research projects, developers and suppliers, business users and potential adopters of this new technological paradigm.

More precisely, the European Cloud, Edge & IoT Continuum will be supported by the effort of two Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs), namely Open Continuum and UNLOCKCEI, which will cooperate to reach the stated common goal, focussing respectively on the supply and demand sides of the CEI Continuum. These will also benefit from the synergies and legacy of other existing EU projects in the domains of Cloud, Edge, IoT, AI, and connectivity.
