Rui Ferreira attended the final review for the PROSE coordination action. The review was very successful and discussed future directions for how opensourceprojects.eu can support Open Source software in the European ICT community.
Micael Capitão defended his Master Thesis today (Mediator Framework for Inserting Data into Hadoop). The jury members were unanimous on giving him a deserved and excellent grade for his work. We all wish you the very best for your future. Congratulations Micael.

Daniel Corujo presented our group's paper on "A case for ICN usage in IoT environments", co-authored with José Quevedo and Prof. Rui Aguiar, at the 2014 GLOBECOM's Symposium on Selected Areas in Communications: (IoT) Managing and Building New Internet of Things Applications.
Today, he will also chair the Wireless Networks session on Heterogeneous Networks. It is impressive to regard that this topic, a core subject of this research group since its conception in 2003, is still present at important venues such as GLOBECOM, and an increasingly important research item in the upcoming Horizon 2020 panorama.
One of our members, André Martins, who completed his Master Thesis on "Critical Ethernet based on OpenFlow" this year, was interviewed on the internship he did for OpenDaylight.
Daniel Corujo just presented, on behalf of Prof. Rui L. Aguiar, the Networld2020 Network and Service mobility management White Paper at the Stakeholders Consultation Workshop - Network Technologies Work Programme 2016-2017, in Brussels, Belgium.
This workshop will bring together experts and stakeholders to refine and prioritise ideas for future Network Technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) research and innovation that will be part of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017.
The discussions in each of the thematic strands will be kicked off with a set of invited presentations, followed by participants' interventions and collective discussions.
The objective is to draft a position paper per session summarising received contributions and identifying research priorities.
As members of the EngageSKA consortium, ATNoG/IT is present at the SKAEngCon14 in Perth, Western Australia. This is an important opportunity to participate in the engineering designing efforts of the latest telescope in human history. Like any other great endeavour, there are still lots of unknown variables and critical design decisions to consider.
João Paulo Barraca and Diogo Gomes presented a DIY Home Automation prototype for all makers, incorporating advanced M2M communications concepts, at the Lisbon Mini Maker Faire. It generated a great amount of interest among hobbyists and professionals, and was a great opportunity to show how the IoT will change our world.
In the first day, this was also complemented by a workshop presenting the approach taken. Check the slides (in portuguese) here.
