1. Keynote Title: Open Innovation Platforms for Automobiles and Mobility Solutions
    Keynote Lecturer: Venkatesh Prasad
    Presented on: 24/04/2016, Rome, Italy
    Abstract: During the past five years Ford Motor Company has developed and used a number of platforms to reduce the barriers to innovation by both employee-innovators and third-parties. In this keynote, we will describe OpenXC, an open-source platform for developing software applications as well as accessories for automobiles. We will present examples of what has been created by the community using OpenXC and also show how it was used with several crowd-sourced innovation contest platforms to help shape solutions to mobility challenges in several locations around the world.
    Presented at the following Conference: SMARTGREENS, 5th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems; VEHITS, International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems

  2. Keynote Title: Guidelines for Eco-friendly Data Centres - Lessons learnt in Three European Research Projects on Data Centres Energy Savings
    Keynote Lecturer: Giovanni Giuliani
    Presented on: 24/04/2016, Rome, Italy
    Abstract: Data centres are becoming the key infrastructure elements in Smart Cities programs, as well as the foundation for any IoT and Big Data platform. The data centres are therefore - on one side - supporting in general the growth of ICT services, but - on the other side - are becoming more and more large energy consumers and contributors to GHG emissions. Also, some data centres tend to move back into (or nearby) the cities for reasons like avoiding network latency issues of critical real-time interactive applications, whereas Smart Cities have tight objectives of environment sustainability and renewable energy utilization. Therefore, data centres must maximize their ability to run at minimal environmental impact and to exploit the presence of clean (renewable) energy sources. During the last years, the European Commission co-funded several research projects on data centre energy efficiency: this talk will initially present a brief summary of three of them, i.e. FIT4Green, All4Green and DC4Cities. Finally, based on the lesson learnt in these and other parallel projects, a set of guidelines will be presented to supporting data centres becoming more eco-friendly: first introducing energy-awareness in the data centre management, then helping to identify and plan enhancements in logistics, hardware, software and operations, finally examining useful metrics to evaluate the improvements and environment impact.
