Joint PERIMETER and ETSI-HF Workshop

The Joint PERIMETER and ETSI-HF Workshop took place in Sophia Antipolis, France on 8th February 2011.
This workshop which discussed issues relating to the “Standardisation issues for user-centric seamless mobility” was attended by the members of the PERIMETER consortium, ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) and Orange Labs.
The workshop featured a full day of presentations and discussions on issues such as:
• PERIMETER’s standardisation efforts,
• Scalable privacy preserving storage systems for Quality of Experience,
• Personalisation and context sensitive dynamic user profiles,
• Passive methods to assess user experience,
• Decision making in user-centric networks
• Standardisation of user perception of mobile streaming applications in seamless network handover.
The workshop was sponsored by PERIMETER and organised by PERIMETER partner Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (BTH), Sweden, together with the project leader GFI, Spain/Belgium.
A full report of the outcomes of this workshop will be issued in the appropriate PERIMETER deliverable in the coming months.
