News date: 
Fri, 2011-09-16

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the release of its dissemination report for year 1:

Deliverable D5.2 - Report on trendsetting activities.

The report can be accessed under the Dissemination/Technical Reports section, or directly at the following link http://www.univerself-project.eu/technical-reports



UniverSelf intends to become a trendsetter in the area of autonomic networking for future networks. To this end, the work package 5 of the project coordinates all the dissemination, promotion and standardisation activities aiming at ensuring a wide impact and take-up of the project's vision and outcomes.

The present document is an outcome of the four tasks constituting work package 5 of UniverSelf. It reports all the trendsetting activities, achieved during the first project year (from September 2010 to August 2011). It covers: publications, presentations, communication, project promotion, event organization (workshops, panels and special issues), liaisons and collaboration with other projects and standardization actions.

The main trendsetting achievements in year 1 of UniverSelf are:

  • A total of 44 scientific publications: 35 published or accepted for publication, 9 submitted for review.
  • Public release of 4 major technical reports (D2.1, D3.1, D3.3, D4.1) and 2 general project promotion publications: the project leaflet and a first press release.
  • Set-up and maintenance of an active web presence, which is referenced by Wikipedia.
  • Release of two of the first standards with contribution and influence from the UniverSelf project:

- Y.3001 recommendation approved in June 2011 by the ITU-T plenary. This standard recommendation represents the first definition and agreement in any standardisation groups on future networks and is the first management standard based on “in-band management/network empowerment” approach.

- AFI-0001 group specification approved in May 2011 by ETSI. This group specification defines scenarios, use cases and requirements for an autonomic and self-managing future Internet as developed by the ETSI AFI Industry Specification Group.

  • Planning, monitoring of and participation in standardisation or pre-standardisation group meetings (7).
  • Organisation and participation in relevant dissemination events and activities: workshops, special issues (6), events with European Commission support.
  • Collaboration with other EU-funded projects and international research initiatives (11).
  • Preparation and planning of open-source solutions for management of future networks: 2 platforms under development at UCL and INRIA.
