Participation of CVIS


Europe's most visible forum for ICT research and innovation


This biannual event is a unique gathering point for researchers, business people, investors, and high-level policy-makers in the field of digital innovation. More than 4000 participants are expected to attend.

ICT2010 will focus on the latest research trends in information and communication technologies, as well as policy priorities such as Europe's Digital Agenda and the next financial programme of the European Union for funding research and innovation in ICT. The two main themes for ICT2010 are crucial research issues facing Europe: ‘ICT for sustainable growth in a low-carbon economy’ and ‘ICT for and by the citizen’.




Central themes for the 2010 conference:

  • The potential of digital solutions to promote sustainable growth in a low carbon economy/ICT for a sustainable recovery and improved energy efficiency

  • The continuing constructive role of ICT in the daily life of citizens/benefits of EU-funded research on daily life

  • The importance of public participation in the innovation process.

The conference will include special sessions presenting the European Union's funding priorities for the 2.8 Billion Euros of EU funding available for ICT research and development during 2011-2012.

Experience Europe's latest cutting edge research in digital technologies at the ICT2010 exhibition. 
Researchers from all parts of Europe and beyond will present their latest work in upstream ICT innovation as well as close-to-market projects. This is an opportunity to explore what is happening at the coal face in your area of interest and to find potential future collaborators. In addition, Belgium's national pavilion will showcase the innovation spirit of the host country through a range of Belgian digital solutions.




ICT2010 will host dozens of networking sessions designed to facilitate contacts between researchers and innovators, engineers and investors from all fields of digital innovation. This is your chance to build future partnerships with the right people in your field.

Participation of CVIS


CVIS partners will continue promoting the project's results beyond its end; here are the proposals for sessions submitted by INRIA:

  • Networking Session: IPv6 in ICT projects: Are we doing enough?
    The Internet is nearing depletion of IPv4 addresses and little is done in ICT projects to develop around IPv6. This may defeat European innovation and competitiveness.  The objective of the session is to discuss how IPv6 know-how could best be developed in Europe through the use of ICT programs. ICT programs can indeed boost IPv6 know-how and deployment in Europe by encouraging forthcoming projects to use IPv6 applications, services, hardware and training. As a specific input about the problems faced by European projects attempting to develop around IPv6, we will consider Cooperative Systems and the CVIS Integrated Project's. CVIS's progress was undermined by the lack of internal IPv6 expertise, lack of commercial services, skepticism and lack of awareness within the sector.

  • Networking Session: IPv6 GeoNetworking: addressing destinations in a geographic area

    The GeoNet project which completed in February aimed at combining IPv6 and GeoNetworking into a single Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) communication architecture. It links the CALM architecture specified by ISO and developed by the CVIS project and the communication architecture defined by the Car-to-Car Communication Consortium. With such a combined architecture, it is possible to distribute geographic-bound information from the Internet to all the vehicles in a specific geographic area or from a vehicle to the Internet via intermediate vehicles, expanding  the capabilities offered to Cooperative Systems applications and to IPv6 itself. The objective of the session is to show how IPv6 GeoNetworking benefits to Cooperative Systems and other sectors (public safety, health-care, home automation, etc) where an information must be transmitted intelligently to destinations located in a geographic area, therefore opening new research fields that could be addressed by ICT. IPv6 GeoNetworking will enable subsequent large-scale pilot tests (FOT) of cooperative systems.
