The demo stand was the result of strong team and coordination effort as it showcased, in three separate sub-demos (proposed by University of Piraeus, Alcatel Lucent and TNO respectively) complementary aspects of the iCore architecture. CREATE-NET role has been instrumental in this outstanding achievement (the prize follows a runner-up demo award at last year event), providing (besides the iCore poster for the demo-stand) the overall coordination storyline between the demos and ensuring the demo would emphasise the different aspect of a common iCore architecture developed so far within the iCore project, from Object Virtualisation to Composite VOs to the role of cognitive technologies in the iCore Service Level. The award news resonated well also within the EU Commission (Mario Campolargo visited the stand and tweeted about iCore) as well as within the IERC community with acknowledgements from Project Officer Peter Friess and IERC coordinator Ovidiu Vermesan in a message to IERC cluster members: “We congratulate the iCore project who was awarded the Best Demonstration Award at the Future Network and Mobile Summit 2013, in Lisbon, out of 26 demonstration stands. The iCore project has brought forward the demonstration that Europe is a leader player in the area of IoT and the project team has set a high standard that is inspiring and supporting the IERC community.” In the same event, part of the IoT technical track, A. Somov presented a paper entitled “Supporting smart-city mobility with cognitive internet of things” and another iCore paper from University of Piraeus got the runner-up paper award of the conference.
