ComVantage took an active participation during the 2013 Future Internet Assembly (FIA) event from 8th to 10th May 2013. This tenth edition of the Future Internet Assembly was held in The Helix, Dublin in association with the Irish presidency of the Council of the EU. The theme for FIA-Dublin was “Future Internet accelerates Innovation”, and the event was focused on how European Future Internet research and innovation will support EU’s competitiveness and enable a new wave of technologies at the eve of Horizon 2020.

ComVantage was represented in this event by Tobias Münch (SAP) and the FInES Cluster chairman Oscar Lázaro (Innovalia Association). A poster about ComVantage project was shown in order to demonstrate its scientific and technological excellence.

Within the poster, the main goals and objectives of the ComVantage project are shown, as well as the business industrial use cases where it can be applied: from plant engineering and commissioning to mobile maintenance and customer-oriented production in e-commerce. The industrial business cases pose generalized key requirements that ComVantage must achieve, such as a distributed and mobile collaboration, usability, flexibility and security of the information shared avoiding access of unauthorised users.

So as to cope with these requirements and needs, the appropriate technology enablers are being developed. Indeed, ComVantage enables virtual and mobile collaboration between geographically distributed partners through the Semantic Web by means of user friendly single-purpose mobile applications. Moreover, so as to guarantee the privacy of the collaborative data, ComVantage implements an innovative fine-grained access control based on query rewriting and traditional XACML solutions.
