In the first week of June 2018, symbIoTe participated at the collocated events of GIoTS and IoT Week in Bilbao.

During the GIoTS, our Technical Coordinator Dr. Ivana Podnar Žarko presented the paper “Collaboration Mechanisms for IoT Platform Federations Fostering Organizational Interoperability” in the main track of the conference at the “IoT Enabling Technologies IV” session.

On the third day of the GIoTS, symbIoTe, together with BIG IoT, organized the “3rd InterOSS-IoT – International Workshop on Interoperability & Open Source Solutions for the Internet of Things”. InterOSS-IoT is a biennial workshop that focuses on exchanging experiences on industrial standards evaluation, showcasing practical interoperable IoT applications, promoting open-source solutions and looking into yet unsolved issues and gaps. The 3rd edition was chaired by Dr. Ivana Podnar Žarko and Dr. Martin Serrano, while Sergios Soursos and Arne Broering opened the workshop with statements from symbIoTe and BIG IoT respectively. During the workshop, there were very interesting presentations about semantic interoperability, privacy, security and value creation through interoperability. We also had the honour to have with us two keynote speakers, Dr. Omar Elloumi, (Nokia, OneM2M General Chair), who talked about scalability of the IoT in industrial set ups, and Bill Weinberg, who held an interesting session about security for the open source, vulnerabilities and best practices.

Moreover, an Innovation Hackfest was co-organised with BIG IoT and Fiesta-IoT, and allowed the participants to understand our solutionss, propose unique concepts and business ideas and finally win awards. The winner of the symbIoTe challenge was a team from the Polytechnic University of Valencia that pitched for a symbIoTe-enabled service for Port Management.
