Dissemination and Standardisation Report IV

This document gives an overview of the activities the APOSDLE project consortium has undertaken in the four project years in the areas of standardization and dissemination as part of work package 7. The focus of this document is a summative one on the more scientific activities. This means, the document is organized as a body of reference for the standardization and scientific publications. In contrast to that, industry-oriented events of the forth year of APOSDLE and the respective activities are described in the final APOSDLE deliverable on exploitation. The former deliverables on exploitation, dissemination and standardization contained also descriptions of scientific events. We restrict our report on summarizing the contributions in standardization and scientific publication.
WP7 promoted the adoption of standards and the awareness of standardisation activities in all the technological aspects relevant to APOSDLE, and to encourage the engagement with standardisation efforts, by contributing to ongoing standardisation groups, and disseminating specifications. The standardisation activity performed in WP7 during the four years of the project has focused mainly on adoption of standards and awareness of standardisation activities across several technological areas of the project in order to ensure the usage of the latest updates and advancements of the standardisation bodies into the design and realisation of the APOSDLE system. During the project, members of the APOSDLE team have also actively contributed to standards and standardisation groups of interest for the project, like in the case of the IEEE LTSC Study Group on Competencies, or the W3C Video on the web standardisation activities. This deliverable reports a summary of the main standardisation activities within the APOSDLE project. These activities were also documented in the APOSDLE Standardisation Wiki, which was used to monitor and report the progress in important standardisation activities and general technological developments of interest to the project.
A further objective of WP 7 was the scientific dissemination of the APOSDLE result, which we summarize here in a table view. APOSDLE succeeded in cross-consortium, integrative work on high-class peer-reviewed publications. Overall sixty scientific dissemination activities i.e. accepted, peer-reviewed publications were reported throughout the project with over a third of these targeting business and industry groups. The impact of these publications was also higher with several more prestigious conference appearances (e.g. CHI, AH, ISWC, EKAW) and a couple of Journal publications.
