“DEPLOYING APPLICATIONS IN THE 6G ERA: THE DAWN OF HIGHLY-SECURE, TRUSTWORTHY, SCALABLE AND ADAPTABLE ECOSYSTEMS” workshop

aerOS project co-organises the “DEPLOYING APPLICATIONS IN THE 6G ERA: THE DAWN OF HIGHLY-SECURE, TRUSTWORTHY, SCALABLE AND ADAPTABLE ECOSYSTEMS” workshop in the context of IEEE International Workshop on Computer Aided Modeling and Design of Communication Links and Networks.
With 5G becoming mainstream after being deployed in several regions of the world, the constant growth of interconnected devices and the demand for high data rate services compel the conceptualization of the next generation of networking which will address the needs of an “always connected” society. The astonishing numbers of interconnected devices supporting smart homes/cities/transportations, e-health applications and consumer services, push toward redesigning the Internet-of-Everything (IoE) paradigm with a user-centric approach, thus extending the 5G-era shift from rate-centric enhanced mobile broadband services to ultra-reliable low-latency communications.

6G Networks should be capable of unleashing the full potential of each application, through the inherent support of contemporary wireless technologies, cutting-edge network architectures, AI/ML-based optimization techniques and over-the-top security features. It is often stated that 6G will facilitate the pivotal shift from present-day’s interconnected intelligent nodes to the much broader “connected intelligence”, a holistic approach for delivering disruptive services, thus introducing new heights of user satisfaction.

In this respect, this Special Session aims at providing a forum where researchers, engineers, and practitioners may discuss the latest advances on architectures, algorithms, abstractions, and technologies for delivering scalable, secure, trustworthy, robust, flexible, and agile applications. We strongly encourage submission of innovative work on contemporary network and application design.

aerOS Co-organised workshop “THE WORKSHOP ON INTELLIGENT CLOUD CONTINUUM FOR B5G SERVICES”

A new Co-organised Workshop by aerOS entitled “THE WORKSHOP ON INTELLIGENT CLOUD CONTINUUM FOR B5G SERVICES”

There is Call for Papers deadline on August 20, 2023.

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

Cloud-Edge-IOT Skills Demands for Adoption workshop

During the Cloud-Edge-IOT Skills Demands for Adoption workshop, the key positions for the aerOS Port Continuum use case were identified, with the main purpose of recognizing the skills that are required to be developed in order to successfully complete the main project tasks. The skillset was focused on AI, IoT, Cloud, BI/Data Science and Cybersecurity and the result was a collection of new skills that should be acquired by the project team. Interestingly, this exercise even helped the project partners in identifying previously unknown knowledge gaps, which can be used to further prepare the Port Operator and other partners for the upcoming IoT and AI revolution.

Finally, during the last part of the workshop, key working positions were identified for the future industry adopters of the aerOS outcomes, which can further help guide the workforce and industry in developing the necessary Human Capital.

At this workshop the following presentations by aerOS project took place:

Session 1: Data driven cognitive production line Presenter: Pablo Patús Díaz, aerOS Project . Facilitator: Golboo Pourabdollahian

Session 3: Smart-edge services for the port continuum Presenter: Eduardo Garro Crevillen, aerOS project . Facilitator: J E Álvarez, Expert: Rudolf Susnik

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:

The integration of heterogeneous sensors and systems with different technologies taking account environmental constraints, and data confidentiality levels;
Big challenges on information management for the applications of IoT in different fields (trustworthiness, provenance, privacy);
Security challenges related to co-existence and interconnection of many IoT networks;
Challenges related to reliability and dependability, especially when the IoT becomes the mission critical component;
Zero-configuration or other convenient approaches to simplify the deployment and configuration of IoT and self-healing of IoT networks;
Knowledge discovery, especially semantic and syntactical discovering of the information from data provided by IoT.
The IoT technical session is seeking original, high quality research papers related to such topics. The session will also solicit papers about current implementation efforts, research results, as well as position statements from industry and academia regarding applications of IoT.

“COMMON TAXONOMY FOR EU METAOS” workshop

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.

EUCloudEdgeIoT’s – “Market and Sectors” Workshop
