The FORA Project Meeting has taken place on June 3-4, at Park Inn By Radisson hotel, Copenhagen. The meeting had the following purposes:

1) defining the FORA reference platform architecture
2) facilitate the research collaboration
3) define Use Cases and benchmarks for Fog Computing
4) Support the development of demonstrators around Fog Use Cases for industrial applications

The local organizers of this event were Prof. Paul Pop and Dr. Bahram Zarrin from the Technical University of Denmark.

The following items have been on the agenda:

  • FORA platform reference architecture requirements and design (Dr. Wilfried Steiner, TTTech):
    • What is a platform reference architecture and how is it documented
