July, 2022

IoTWeek 2022 was held on 20-23 June 2022 in Dublin, Ireland, where InterQ and Dat4.ZERO had a co-located workshop approved by the IoTWeek organizers. Since 2011, IoT Week has been an annual event for industry and academic participants from research centers, research projects, large industries, SMEs, developers, standards development groups, and policymakers, including the European Commission. To capitalize on the great chance of having a workshop at IoTWeek 2022, some representatives of the project and the Dat4.ZERO project actively contributed to make a successful event, presented the latest research results from the two projects, and promoted international cooperation efforts. This workshop also made InterQ and Dat4.ZERO as well as the 4ZDM projects more visible to the global IoT community. The workshop was part of the two big thematic areas at IoTWeek: “Next Generation IoT: Emerging Technologies” and “Next-Generation IoT, Research and Cross-Atlantic Cooperation”. The focus   was on data quality in IIoT/Cyber-Physical Systems, especially for Zero-Defect Manufacturing, and related technologies such as Blockchain, Edge computing, Digital twins. There were nearly 20 participants in person at Croke Park Conference Centre – Davin Suite, plus 26 online participants from the 4ZDM projects!

Hui Song from SINTEF opened the workshop and moderated the two sessions of the workshop. The first session consisted of four talks:

  • Dumitru Roman (SINTEF/University of Oslo, DataCloud project): DataCloud: An ecosystem for managing big data pipelines on the computing continuum.
  • Maria Chiara Magnanini (Politecnico di Milano, ZERO project): IoT challenges in pit-stop manufacturing: within the company and beyond
  • Karl John Pedersen and Per Myrseth (DNV Norway, InterQ project): Federated data quality as a service in industrial IoT.
  • Phu H. Nguyen (SINTEF, InterQ project & ZERO project): Context-aware Edge-based IoT Data Sharing-as-a-Service.

The first session also spared enough time for Q&A after each talk. After 15 minutes of a short break, the workshop resumed with the second session featuring three talks.

  • Sagar Sen (SINTEF, InterQ project & ZERO project): Virtual Sensors in the Internet of Things
  • Cyril Cecchinel and Francois Fouquet (Datathing, InterQ project): Creating dedicated digital twins by experience.
  • Harris Niavis (Inlecom, InterQ project): Blockchain for IoT Security, Privacy, Data Integrity and Interoperability.

We concluded the workshop with an open discussion for all the participants, including online ones. Many thanks to all the participants, the organizers of IoTWeek 2022, and the support from the 4ZDM cluster!
