1) OW2 Aspire RFID : a privacy-friendly RFID middleware.
Speaker :Didier Donsez, LIG, Joseph Fourrier University, Grenoble
Schedule : April 2, 01:00 - 01:30
Abstract : RFID (Radio Frequency IDenfication) technology is becoming a key driving force for next generation network IT system with its vision of the "Internet of Things" and the strong support from major retailers. The OW2 AspireRFID project aims at developing and promoting an open-source, lightweight, standards-compliant, scalable, privacy-friendly, and integrated middleware to ease the development, the deployment and the management of RFID-based applications and sensor-based applications. It implements and completes several specifications from consortiums such as EPC Global, NFC Forum, JCP and OSGi Alliance. The OW2 Aspire RFID project is supported by the FP7 Aspire project

2) Next gen Portals: how OpenSocial standard adds social to the mix
Speaker : Tugdual Grall, eXo Platform
Schedule : April 2, 01:30 - 02:00
Abstract : OpenSocial a new way to develop for portals and adding social to the mix. Abstract: OpenSocial is a standard for the social web managed by the OpenSocial foundation. It offers an API to develop application that are compatible across multiple platforms using HTML, JavaScript, XML, and REST. After one year of existence the standard has been implemented by more than 20 containers, is used by more than 600 million users and more than 7500 applications have been developed for it. The session will start with an overview of what is OpenSocial ant it's ecosystem (social networks, developers, enterprise vendors). We will continue with a general summary of the differences between the Portlet 2.0 specification and the OpenSocial gadgets. Finally, We will demonstrate how to develop OpenSocial applications with the state of the art technology like flex, GWT, grails and eXo Social.

3) Which Portlet Bridge is made for you?
Speaker : Julien Viet, eXo Platform
Schedule : April 2, 02:00 - 02:30
Abstract : A Portlet Bridge is a technology to adapt a web framework to the Portlet environment. A Portlet is a user interface component executed in a runtime called Portlet Container in a similar fashion a Servlet is executed in a Servlet Container. Usually web frameworks are designed to execute in a Servlet Container, fortunately most of the widely known web frameworks provide a Portlet Bridge to provide integration within portals. Furthermore, the JavaServer Faces, standard web framework of the Java EE ecosystem, has its own bridge specification called "Portlet Bridge Specification for JavaServer Faces" that specifies the required behavior. The Portlet specification provides exclusive features not available in a servlet environment such as content personalization, access to the user profile. With the latest 2.0 release of the Portlet specification new advanced features are available such as eventing between portlet. Such features can be bridged between the Portlet and the web framework providing a native support by the framework programming model. This talk provides an high level introduction to the Portlet programming model. Then it focuses on reviewing the support of various Portlet Bridge. A few examples are detailed in order to illustrate the usage of Portlet advanced features with various web frameworks. The talk is targeted to web developers that wants to know which frameworks can be executed within a portal and the features they an expect for them. No particular prerequisite is required beside being familiar with web frameworks such as JavaServer Faces, Struts 2, Tapestry or Wicket.

4) Wiki 2.0: Collaborative Web Applications the wiki way
Speaker : Ludovic Dubost, XWiki
Schedule : April 2, 02:30 - 03:00
Abstract : Wikis are seeing corporate adoption rising at a fast pace. Their feature set is evolving to answer the needs set forth by corporate users. Once a tool for managing unstructured content, wikis are now becoming a platform for creating collaborative web applications easily. This new generation of wikis makes it possible to mix unstructured content -text & images- with structured content -forms, metadata, applications- in a breathe. Second generation wikis are thus becoming the ideal candidate for intranets, knowledge management tools and collaborative websites. Wikis introduce innovation, collaboration and dynamism at the heart of the information system. This presentation will introduce you to the Wiki 2.0 world and help you discover innovative ways to use your wiki.

5) Spago4Q, quality monitoring and evaluation
Speaker : Davide Dalle Carbonare, Engineering
Schedule : April 2, 03:00 - 03:30
Abstract : This presentation is focused on the description of a couple of cases. The first one will show how to integrate and use the Spago4Q platform, in an enterprise enviroment, as a supporting tool for the project management and quality certification achievement (CMMi, ISO, ...). The second case will show how QualiPSo (initiative funded by the European Commission) is going to adopt the Spago4Q platform as tool for monitoring the quality of a software development process, product, and software evaluation activities.
