The continuing evolution of telecommunications and information services is delivering the technology to fulfil the promise of omnipresent services and applications, which facilitate the users’ everyday activities. Pervasive computing and ubiquitous services have been an intense research issue over the last years. In order to exploit the potential of ubiquitous services and applications it is necessary to consider them from an end-to-end perspective. Today, many technologies are available that can be combined to exploit the business potentials of services and applications which work anytime and anywhere in a seamless and intuitive way.
The fourth Eurescom Summit focuses on ‘Ubiquitous Services and Applications’. It aims at capturing a snapshot of ongoing activities in the related technological and business areas, providing value to executives, business professionals and technical experts of network operators, service providers, equipment manufacturers, content providers as well as to the research community. The conference aims at investigating technical issues of ubiquitous services, showing how the advances in enabling technologies can support the exploitation of ubiquity. The conference will consider the exploitation opportunities, usability and user acceptance, and will evaluate their business relevance.
A major objective of the conference is to explore business challenges, threats and opportunities in this area by covering the whole value chain. Furthermore, it aims at identifying new ways to bridge the gap between a purely technology-driven and a more market-oriented service evolution.
The conference will provide a platform for the discussion of innovative and marketable solutions, strategies for the promotion of ubiquitous services and applications. It will also identify open issues for further research.
The event will cover the following topics from a technology-, user- and business point of view:
Evolution of ubiquitous services and applications
Service platforms, systems & architecture aspects
Business aspects, opportunities and threats
User aspects, acceptance, privacy
Technology aspects, devices
Content related aspects
