December 18th 2015
As part of the organizing committee, it is a pleasure to kindly invite you to the Reconfigurable Market day held in Mons, Belgium on Friday the 18th of December 2015. This seminar day is an opportunity to learn more about embedded systems (especially FPGAs), the research in this field and how industry can benefit from these systems. Speakers from research and industrial partners would be happy to present to you the recent advancements in embedded systems technologies, tools and applications.
Do not hesitate to transfer this invitation to whomever you think might be interested in this event!

Cloud Computing for Enhanced Living Environments: Algorithms, Architectures and Platforms (Cloud4ELE)
Submission deadline: 1 April 2016 • Publication date: November/December 2016
The concept of Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) promotes the seamless integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) within context-aware homes and residences, with the aim of constructing smart environments around assisted people (for example, the elderly and people with disabilities) to help them maintain an independent or more autonomous lifestyle, reduce the corresponding costs of health and social care, and achieve improved quality of life and advanced autonomy, mobility, social interaction, self-confidence, independence, and social inclusion.
The computation power made available by highly advanced datacenters can now be brought closer to the user, thanks to mobile platforms. And the actual interconnection between mobile and cloud systems is made possible by combining the capabilities of individuals, as they interact with each other and their information, through well-design ubiquitous technology. Platforms of tomorrow will benefit from this combination, through the help of new models for understanding the environment (such as participatory and opportunistic mobile sensing), performing computation (such as mobile cloud computing), or even exchanging data (such as mobile ad hoc networks).
The goal of this special issue is to bring together state-of-the-art research efforts describing original and unpublished work that addresses advanced cloud computing challenges and solutions for ELE realization. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
• Computational intelligence for smart ELE
• Cloud-based architectures and platforms for ELE
• Cloud-based testbeds, prototypes, and practical systems
• Smart sensing and monitoring within ELE
• Adaptive mobile cloud computing
• ICT instrumentation and middleware support for smart ELE
• Mobile applications, networks, and systems
• Applications to ambient assisted living environments
• Human-computer interaction within ELE
• Multimodal user interfaces for ELE
• Efficient algorithms for ELE data collection, fusion,
• Innovative cloud services and applications for ELE
• Multimedia content delivery
• Services for location and context sensing and awareness
• Security and communication aspects related to ELE
• Performance evaluation of existing cloud computing

DiTSE project recevies the prestigious ITEA Silver Award 2012
The DIYSE project was awarded the prestigious ITEA Silver Award 2012.
Each year, the ITEA Achievement award highlights very successful projects with outstanding contributions to the ITEA programme. Major factors include innovation, exploitation and dissemination. As ITEA aims to make Europe’s industry more competitive, effective industrial exploitation of project results is crucial.
The Internet of Things (IoT) marks the next major revolution in worldwide connectivity. The ITEA 2 DiYSE project has developed a technical platform to overcome barriers to user-generated IoT applications for ordinary people, developers and other ecosystem actors alike. Key outcomes are a live public experimental Internet site and a series of underlying technical assets, many already being exploited.
DiYSE wins the ITEA2 Exhibition Award 2010!
At the ITEA2-Artemis Co-Summit that took place on October 26-27 in Ghent, Belgium, visitors elected DiY Smart Experiences to win the Exhibition Award for the best and most understandable project showcased at the event. The two-day Co-Summit focused on scalability and growth in software-intensive systems and services. The event included the biggest exhibition of funded collaborative research, development and innovation projects in software-intensive systems & services and embedded systems in Europe. Exhibitors included 70 ITEA and ARTEMIS projects as well as national competitiveness clusters, Flemish projects, several EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) projects and EUREKA. Over 600 R&D actors and policy makers from industry, research organisations, academia and public authorities from Europe and further afield participated.
