IoT Standardisation

This session will focus on IoT, with a particular focus on Semantic Interoperability and Reference Architectures. Following the recent developments of the Standardisation workgroup of the Alliance for IoT Innovation (AIOTI WG3), the set up of ETSI’s Specialist Task Force on IoT (STF 505) and developments in key organisations, like IAB’s Semantic Interoperability Workshop and the Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things of IEEE P2413.

Session Speakers

Thibaut Kleiner
Thibaut KleinerHead of Unit Network Technologies at the European Commission
Mr. Kleiner is heading unit E1 – Network Technologies – in DG CONNECT, European Commission. This unit is in charge of Research & Innovation in the area of wireless optical networks, network architectures, Internet of
Things, Satcom and manages the 5G-PPP.
Thibaut has worked for the European Commission since 2001, occupying a number of positions, notably in the field of competition policy, where he was head of unit in charge of coordination, and member of Cabinet of
Neelie Kroes in her first mandate where he was in charge of state aid and in her second mandate where he supervised Internet policies, data and cybersecurity. An economist by training, he holds a Master from HEC
Paris and a PhD from the London School of Economics.
Konstantinos Karachalios
Konstantinos KarachaliosIEEE Standards Association, Managing Director
A globally recognized leader in standards development and intellectual property, Dr. Ing. Konstantinos Karachalios is managing director of the IEEE Standards Association and a member of the IEEE Management Council.
As managing director, he has been enhancing IEEE efforts in global standards development in strategic emerging technology fields, through technical excellence of staff, expansion of global presence and activities and emphasis on inclusiveness and good governance, including reform of the IEEE standards-related patent policy.
As member of the IEEE Management Council, he championed expansion of IEEE influence in key techno-political areas, including consideration of social and ethical implications of technology, according to the IEEE mission to advance technology for humanity. Results have been rapid in coming and profound; IEEE is becoming the place to go for debating and building consensus on issues such as Internet governance and ethics in design of autonomous systems.
Before IEEE, Konstantinos played a crucial role in successful French-German cooperation in coordinated research and scenario simulation for large-scale nuclear reactor accidents. And with the European Patent Office, his experience included establishing EPO’s patent academy, the department for delivering technical assistance for developing countries and the public policy department, serving as an envoy to multiple U.N. organizations.
Konstantinos earned a Ph.D. in energy engineering (nuclear reactor safety) and master’s in mechanical engineering from the University of Stuttgart.
Jari Arkko
Jari ArkkoExpert at Ericsson Research & Chair of the IETF
Jari Arkko is an Expert on Internet Architecture with Ericsson Research, Finland. At the IETF, he has served six years in the steering group, one in the architecture board, and is the current IETF Chair. He has published 32 RFCs, including specifications for Mobile IPv6, EAP-AKA, Diameter, SEND, and various IPv6 related documents. Jari also works in a number of research projects at Ericsson and has worked in the implementation of routers, VPN software, testing tools, modem banks, cellular network nodes, AAA systems, compilers, and AI systems. He received his Licentiate’s degree from Helsinki University of Technology in 1996. Jari’s main interests in the Internet include architecture, IPv6, the Internet of Things, social media, Internet governance, and cutting through technology hype. He likes to build and and use the technology that he works with. For instance, he moved to an IPv6-only network in 2010 and builds smart home networks as a hobby.
