  2. Keynote Title: Runtime Aware Architectures
    Keynote Lecturer: Mateo Valero
    Presented on: 27/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
    Abstract: In the last years the traditional ways to keep the increase of hardware performance to the rate predicted by the Moore's Law vanished. When uni-cores were the norm, hardware design was decoupled from the software stack thanks to a well defined Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). This simple interface allowed developing applications without worrying too much about the underlying hardware, while computer architects proposed techniques to aggressively exploit Instruction-Level Parallelism (ILP) in superscalar processors. Current multi-cores are designed as simple symmetric multiprocessors on a chip. While these designs are able to compensate the clock frequency stagnation, they face multiple problems in terms of power consumption, programmability, resilience or memory. The solution is to give more responsibility to the runtime system and to let it tightly collaborate with the hardware. The runtime has to drive the design of future multi-cores architectures. In this talk, we introduce an approach towards a Runtime-Aware Architecture (RAA), a massively parallel architecture designed from the runtime's perspective.

  3. Keynote Title: User Acceptance of Internet of Things (IoT) Services and Applications
    Keynote Lecturer: Anastasios Economides
    Presented on: 28/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
    Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is the worldwide Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructure that will support ubiquitous services among interacting beings, objects, data and applications. In IoT, everyone and everything (humans, animals, plants, wearables, appliances, vehicles, machines, etc.) will carry sensors and/or actuators that will be interconnected via networks. Various services and applications that will use the communicated information will support users and organizations. Alongside the development of technology, user behavior, social, cultural and economic issues should be investigated. Thus, a cross-disciplinary approach should be employed to tackle uncertainties regarding the launch onto the market of profitable applications and services. However, little attention has been given to the user behavioral and organizational issues that are necessary for the acceptance, adoption and usage of these IoT services and applications by the users and organizations. It is not clear which of these services and applications will be accepted, and what are the factors that will affect their acceptance. This keynote speech presents an introduction to IoT services and applications as well as factors that could affect their acceptance.

  4. Keynote Title: Revisiting control/data plane separation in Software Defined Networking
    Keynote Lecturer: Giuseppe Bianchi
    Presented on: 26/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
    Abstract: As defined in Wikipedia, Software Defined Networking (SDN) is about “decoupling the system that makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane) from the underlying systems that forward traffic to the selected destination (the data plane)”. Such decoupling is very frequently meant to imply the physical separation between a smart (logically) centralized controller in charge of taking and enforcing decisions, and dumb network switches and devices which are completely driven by the controller in terms of forwarding rules install/update commands. We believe that this rigid, physical, separation is by no means a conceptual principle, but it is just the consequence of the inability to emerge, so far, with pragmatic device-level programming interfaces more expressive than OpenFlow, i.e., which permit to program, inside the switch itself, more complex and dynamic “flow behavior models”, rather than static forwarding rules. In the talk, we discuss technical ways to formally describe stateful per flow behavior while retaining pragmatism (and some level of compatibility with today’s OpenFlow), platform independency, and portability across different network devices and nodes. Taking stocks, we posit that the unprecedented ability to locally deploy, in each network switch, third-party programmed platform-agnostic control functions, not only questions the rigid control/data plane separation that so far has driven SDN efforts, but rather might even pave the road towards the viable return of some “active networking” ideas in the SDN arena.

  5. Keynote Title: Connecting Services to the Web of Data

    Keynote Lecturer: John Domingue

    Presented on: 22/07/2015, Colmar, Alsace, France

    Abstract: Over the last few years we have seen a rapid growth in the Web of Data where now statistics indicate that there are around 100 billion semantic statements available on the Web. Governments, especially the US and UK Governments, are producing hundreds of thousands of public datasets in machine readable form on the Web using Web standards such as RDF(S) and SPARQL. Major Web and Media players such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Microsoft and the BBC are now using this technology. In this talk I will describe work that we have been carrying out in the area which we term "Linked Services" which seeks to connect the spheres of Linked Data and Web services to form a new global computing platform. I will illustrate the talk with a number of applications we have been involved.

    Presented at the following Conference(s):
    - ICETE, 12th International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications
    - ICSOFT, 10th International Joint Conference on Software Technologies
    - DATA, 4th International Conference on Data Management Technologies and Applications
