The AALIANCE2 organizes a stakeholder workshop, which will take place on 11 June 2013 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The full title of this event is: “AALIANCE2 Workshop on Reference Architectures and AAL Middleware”
This fourth workshop will focus on reference architectures and AAL middleware. Many projects have in the last few years developed AAL runtime environments and middleware solutions that aim at being reusable “AAL operating systems”. The workshop will try to summarize the state of the art in AAL middleware and discuss whether a standardization of an AAL “reference architecture” is needed, and on which levels (e. g. reference model, system architecture, APIs, terminology/ontology).
Representatives of the most important middleware projects and products, including universAAL, URC; OpenHAB, IP-Symcon, OpenRemote, MundoCore and others will be invited. The workshop primarily addresses people involved in the development or use of AAL middleware systems and related developments (e. g. from the smart home sector). The workshop is also open to interested AAL system architects and system developers and representatives of the standardization bodies active in the field of AAL.
