The InWaterSense project is presented in the First International Forum on Smart City that took place in Durrës, Albania, 3-4th November 2014. Slides of the presentation entitled “The InWaterSense Project: A Semantic Sensor Web to monitor the water quality in rivers in Kosova” are available here for download. The forum was organized by the Adriapol Institute in collaboration with Marin Barleti University of Tirana, under the High Patronage of The Council of Ministers of the Republic of Albania, with main actors in Kosovo, Albania and FYR Macedonia among governmental institutions, i.e., prime minister of Albania, ministers, majors of main cities, as well as main donators in three countries being present in this event.
The InWaterSense project disseminated at the review meeting of the EU FP7 project ICT-KOSEU held on Brussels in 4th June 2014.
The InWaterSense project was presented as “Semantic Sensor Web and the InWaterSense project” in the Research Seminar held on 28th February 2014 at University of Prishtina as part of another project ICT-KOSEU funded by the EU’s FP7 Programme, with guest lectures by researchers of EU universities / research institutes (Max-Planck-Institute, Magdeburg, and Technical University of Berlin, Germany; CREATE NET and Trento University, Italy; Graz University of Technology, Austria; Vienna University of Technology, Austria), as well as by researchers and businesses of Kosovo, and with around 100 participants attending the seminar.
The InWaterSense project results have been incorporated while teaching as a guest lecturer at Linnaeus University, Sweden, on 3rd December 2013 on “A Semantic Web in Use: Semantic Sensor Web” as part of the master course “Adaptive and Semantic Web”. Furthermore, the project was disseminated in a guest lecture on the Social Media Week held during the visit, with participants - visiting researchers from Germany, Israel, Kosovo, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine & United State. The stay at Linnaeus University was funded by the Linnaeus-Palme project, Sweden.
The InWaterSense project disseminated at ICT 2013, the EU’s largest annual event in ICT with thousands of participants, researchers, decision-makers, and businesses in the field, held this year in Vilnius, Lithuania, on 6-8th November 2013. The networking sessions, like the Face2Face session facilitated by the organizers of the event were used to discuss about the InWaterSense project. A profile provided at the Commission’s Website was also used to promote the InWaterSense project. The participation was funded by the ICT_KOSEU EU FP7 project.
The article entitled “An Ontology Framework for Water Quality Management” has been accepted for publication at the 6th International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks co-located with the 12th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2013) held on October 22 2013 in Sydney, Australia. This workshop is organized by leading researchers in the area of semantic sensor networks, and as such is in particular important for the research results in the project to reach a wide competitive audience at the international level.
