1 Dissemination & Awareness Introductory Remarks 15 February, 2006

2 Outline FP6 FP7 This meeting Q&A Overview of your inputs Practicalities

3 K&C within FP6 58 projects, ~640 contractors, 260 M€ RTD&D: –long term research (formal, theoretical) –component technology research & development –applied, system-level research –demonstration emphasis on –generic, enabling technologies –flexible, cross-sectoral application platforms

4 3 project lines 1.Cross-media Content (call 2): novel forms of digital content creativity & interactivity, user experience & control, story-telling & non-linear narratives, cross-platform delivery … 2.Content & Knowledge (call 4): intelligent, dynamic content access & management (meta data generation / extraction, semantic annotation & indexing, contextual retrieval…), automated workflows, aggregation & personalisation, reuse... 3.Knowledge (calls 1 & 4): intersection of Web, MM and KR&R (SemWeb+) networked information & communities, automation of knowledge lifecycle, web / multimedia “documents”, from static to dynamic information, interaction & evolving processes

5 Semantic Web and beyond –intersection of Web, MM and KR&R –networked information & communities –web / multimedia " documents " : text + image, video, audio, shapes … –automation of knowledge lifecycle –from static to dynamic information, interaction, work flows … –data semantics as well as evolving processes & tasks

6 Last (?) series of projects Call 4: 152 submissions received 25 proposals retained, nearly 250 organisations 124 M€ total funding largest EU call ever in the ICK domain –projects started Jan 06 / about to start and now … Call 6 (deadline: 25 Apr)

9 Towards FP7 new framework programme expected to start late 2006 / early 2007 main proposals (FP, SPs, RfP) forwarded to Council & Parliament significant budget increase … depending on EU financial perspectives after 2006 traditional as well as new SPs (eg Space) multinational collaborative research (Cooperation SP) as well as grants for individual teams (Ideas SP)

10 IST rebranded now simply ICT, ~2 B€/year? still the largest thematic component within FP centred around 4 components: –Core Technologies (incl. Knowledge) –Integration of Technologies (eg home environments) –Applications Research (incl. Content) –Future and Emerging Technologies See ICT research within FP7

11 Knowledge & Content in FP7 Knowledge, cognitive and learning systems: methods and techniques to acquire and interpret, represent and personalise, navigate and retrieve, share and deliver knowledge, recognizing the semantic relationships in content for use by humans and machines ICT for content, creativity and personal development: novel forms of interactive, non-linear and self-adaptive content; creativity and enriched user experience; cross-media content customisation and delivery; combining all-digital content production and management with emerging semantic technologies; user-oriented use, access to and creation of content Home environments: … new services and new forms of interactive digital content and services; access to information and management of knowledge

12 ICT workprogramme WP describes (high-level) objectives & priorities in , sets the direction for the first series of EU projects (1,5-2 Beuro?) time-to-WP: –phase 1 (consultations)Feb-Apr –phase 2 (consolidation) Apr-May –phase 3 (workprogramme) Jun-Jul –phase 4 (refine focus & instruments)Jul-Sept –phase 5 (spread the word)Oct-Dec => IST conference, Nov elicit input from ALL relevant circles: –research themes: continuity vs. new directions emerging challenges vs. gaps & failures in FP6 long term research vs. development & validation relationships vis-a-vis adjacent topical areas –stakeholders: S&T communities, ICT and Media industry, user industries –instruments: collaborative platforms, shared infrastructures …

13 3 layers / time frames 3. overall vision – full duration of FP7 – Meuro (?) 2. scope & directions –first waves of projects –3-4 years, , 250 Meuro (?) 1. topics, research tasks & outputs –first 2 years of operation (WP proper) – , 120 Meuro (?)

14 Process roundtables & working visits: –ISWC’05: Semantic Web, progress & prospects –EWIMT’05: Interface between Multimedia & Knowledge R&D –selected research centres … populate the research agenda –Content (26-27 Jan) + Knowledge (2-3 Feb) build “model”, fill gaps, refine S&T contentbuild “model”, fill gaps, refine S&T content –Knowledge (2-3 Mar) + Content (8-9 Mar) consolidate results & discuss working drafts –5[-6] Apr (tbc) and then a long series of revisions … –EC internal then also national reps & experts

15 We need your input, now! project deliverables relating to research roadmap, technology foresight, market trends, etc. outcome of project events - workshops, seminars … addressing ‘hard’ or emerging research themes ad-hoc contributions (by ): –for each candidate research track: state problem & result / advances (granularity: ~ Meuro) expected impact (scientific, technological, economic) time-to-maturity & application space why public intervention, why at EU level timeframe: research starting in 2008 and delivering ‘exploitable’ results 4-5 years later, so … think 2012 and beyond

16 Possible changes in emphasis from document to human centric approach: documents, interaction, ambient information… from focus on automation to balanced mix of people, data & tools: - cater for human & organisational factors - test technology against real(istic) data volumes integrate Web 2.0, address social networks, participative & consumer-produced content … keep pushing towards non-textual content analysis, place more emphasis on multi-modal analysis & interpretation preserve data integration as well as application / process related aspects encourage integration & consolidation: architectures & middleware early experimentation & feedback; more focused attack on selected user profiles and/or application tasks/domains … and more!

17 Linking research to wider context reach out: awareness & dissemination beyond specialist research circles first use: early access to technology, trials & use cases infrastructure: public outcomes, sharing pre-competitive results … and in general any other measure that can add value to research ease and speed up its uptake

18 Want to contribute? your input (1 page per topic): inquiries:

19 This meeting no more projects till Jan 2008 hence up to you (!) to demonstrate good use of public monies and... adequate return on investment powerful lobbies at work: must show results & broaden “our” constituency a huge challenge ahead: –community building, “branding” & reach-out build new partnerships across disciplines stimulate dialogue with industry (IT, telcos, media) get users on board be known, be credible; exploit synergies, avoid duplication hence … a coherent and effective Dissemination & Awareness campaign

20 Reminders main target groups: –your peers –actual or prospective sponsors & buyers (your management, government & research agencies, high-end users, IT & telcos) –politicians & journalists different means for different purposes & target groups: –print & electronic publications (S&T as well as PR) –conferences & exhibitions (S&T as well industrial/professional) –scientific papers & topical seminars (involving outsiders) –project’s open days (prospective sponsors & buyers) –training & knowledge-spreading (involving outsiders) … collaborative multi-party projects, hence “co-authoring” acknowledge EU support (DG INFSO / IST Pgme) reconcile tension between own organisation, consortium & “field” at large (which is OUR concern)
