Cascadas Project



Component-ware for Autonomic Situation-aware Communications, and Dynamically Adaptable Services

Cooperation and Networking (EU Parties)

CASCADAS has established fruitful interactions with the “WORKPAD” project (FP6-2005-IST-5-034749). In particular, WORKPAD was in search of appropriate models to represent and exploit contextual information to enforce location- aware services for mobile users. On the basis of this discussion, the so called “W4” data model identified within WP5 of CASCADAS as a possible way of structuring information by knowledge atoms as been adopted as the reference data model of the WORKPAD project.

CASCADAS has established cooperation and exchanges of results also with the other SAC projects. It should be mentioned also through the joint organisation of some Workshops (e.g. SAC workshop at Bionetics2007 (Budapest, December 2007), SAC-FIRE (Turin, March2008). Moreover Cascadas and Bionets made a joint proposal for demonstration at ICT2008 -

Regarding the networking with other Stakeholders, CASCADAS established relationships with Vendors (for potential joint industrial exploitation of Cascadas concepts and results for the evolution of Service Frameworks for Future Internet and Telco3.0), Universities (for discussion of results and elaboration of reseach visions and agendas) and other Providers (for potential industrial exploitation of Cascadas service concepts for Future Internet and Telco 3.0).

Meeting TI - Telefonica I+D (TI Future Center, 3rd - 4th December 2008).
Telefonica I+D has asked to use the ACE took-kit for internal testing and experimentations in the area of Autonomics. Tool-kit will be downloaded by Telefonica I+D. A brainstorming on potential joint enhancements and exploitations will follow-up.
