[Nettime-nl] Future of Presence vrijdag 10 oktober


Beste Nettimers,

het reguliere telefonienetwerk is door onder meer dataretentie en
aftapbeleid steeds minder een optie waarop je als individu kunt
vertrouwen. In de VS worden jaarlijks miljoenen burgers afgeluisterd,
in Europa blijken zelfs regeringen kwetsbaar voor aftappen (zo werd
onder meer de Griekse regering een jaar lang volledig door onbekenden
telefonisch onderschept). Ook via bedrijven als Skype blijkt censuur en
oncontroleerbaarheid wie er meeluistert een probleem. 

Het internet biedt charmante oplossings- richtingen hiervoor, gebaseerd
op open IETF-standaarden als SIP, SIMPLE, Jabber (XMPP), ENUM, Real Time
Text en andere realtime toepassingen van het internet. Die vallen onder
de gezamenlijke noemer "presence", omdat ze je volledige bereikbaarheid
onder je eigen voorwaarden bieden.

Morgen is een congres gewijd aan dit fenomeen, georganiseerd door
vereniging Internet Society en met een keur aan interessante sprekers
van over de hele wereld. Jullie zijn van harte welkom indien het je
interesseert. Voor PhD's en studenten zorgen we dat je gratis
binnenkomt. En jullie ideeen voor projecten rondom online privacy en
presence zijn van harte welkom, zie:

N.B. Op 23 oktober is er een masterclass over Xtreem OS aan de Vrije
Universiteit door dr. Christine Morin en Sylvain Jeuland. Dat is een op
Linux gebaseerd besturingssysteem dat dankzij Europees onderzoeksgeld
is omgebouwd tot een volwaardig grid operating system. Zie:

                                       Presence is not an application. 
                                   Presence is an application enabler. 
                                   However, some of those applications 
                                            may not be what we expect.

                                                    ==== Robert Sparks

Tijdens "The Future of Presence" op 10 oktober a.s. kunt u weer een
internationaal gezelschap van sprekers tegemoet zien, met showcases van
onder meer de combinatie presence en TV, de laatste ontwikkelingen op
het gebied van toepassingen, diensten en business benefits. Maar ook
verdieping: waarom zijn er binnen IETF op dit moment niet een maar twee
verschillende protocollen (SIMPLE en XMPP) die presence leveren, en wat
betekent dat voor zakelijke investeringen? En een blik op Real Time
Text, de nieuwste loot aan de stam die met zijn interactiviteit op het
punt staat om de instant messaging-markt te veranderen - maar die ook
op het gebied van doventelefonie een belangrijke impact zal hebben. 

U kunt alle benodige informatie hier vinden:

                       The Future of Presence 2008
                             10 Oktober 2008
                  Aula Koninklijke Bibliotheek Den Haag

			    Met onder meer: 

		       * Robert Sparks (Tekelec/USA)
		       * Dean Willis (Softarmor/USA)
		      * Olle Johansson (Edvina/SE)
		    * Adrian Georgescu (AG Projects/NL)
		     * Alan R. Bugos (iBasis, Inc/USA)
		      * Wilhelm Wimmreuter (SCCT/DE) 
         * Arnoud van Wijk (ISOC, RealTime Text Taskforce/NL)
                       * Carsten Schiefner (TelNIC)

Presence is de samenkomst van de verschillende manieren waarop we in het
dagelijks leven communiceren. Protocollen en standaarden als SIP, ENUM,
SIMPLE en XMPP/Jabber maken de convergentie tussen mobiel en vast,
instant messaging, aanwezigheidsdiensten, spraak en videocommunicatie
eindelijk mogelijk. De volgende generatie commmunicatie-apparatuur
brengt alles binnen handbereik van de eindgebruiker.

Future of Presence 2008 wordt georganiseerd door de ISOC.nl Special
Interest Group rondom Internettelefonie en SIP. Motiverende en
inspirerende presentaties door experts van naam uit binnen- en
buitenland, zullen in combinatie met de showcases en demonstraties
helpen om de voor- en nadelen te analyseren van het uitrollen van
diensten gebaseerd op deze technologieen - en daarmee van dienst zijn
bij het maken van beslissingen van serviceproviders en klanten om in
deze nieuwe richting te bewegen. Een must voor iedereen die actief is in
telecom, instant messaging en real time text.

De conferentie wordt gehouden in de aula van de Koninklijke Bibliotheek
(Prins Willem-Alexanderhof 5) in Den Haag. Aanvang: 9.30 uur.

			    Over de sprekers 

* Robert Sparks, Tekelec

  Robert Sparks is a Principal Engineer at Tekelec. Before joining
  Tekelec, he was the VP of Research and Development at Estacado
  Systems, CTO at Xten Networks (now CounterPath) and has held
  management and research positions at Dynamicsoft, Lucent, MCI, and
  Texas A&M University. For over 8 years, Robert has focused on
  designing and developing SIP-based IP communications systems. Robert
  is a co-author of the core SIP specification, RFC3261, and several of
  its updates and extensions. He chairs the IETF's SIMPLE and GEOPRIV
  working groups. Robert is a Director for the international SIP Forum
  which has focused on improving the level of interoperability of SIP
  implementations by coordinating the SIPIt and SIMPLEt interoperability
  events. Robert is also an active contributor to the reSIProcate
  project. Robert has a BSc in Computer Science and a MSc in Mathematics
  from Texas A & M University. 

        "People are just beginning to integrate presence technology into
        their daily lives. We are currently in an era where the first
        thing we do with a Presence/IM system is ask "Are you really
        there?" That will change soon as we go through a phase of
        automation and tighter integration with devices. When it does,
        it will become clearer that Presence is not an application.
        Presence is an application enabler. However, some of those
        applications may not be what we expect." 

* Dean Willis, Softarmor

  Dean Willis chairs the IETF's SIP working group and has done so since
  since it started in 1999. His research interests include computer
  supported collaborative work and identity management. He developed and
  deployed VoIP architecture and service delivery platforms at MCI
  Worldcom, Dynamicsoft, and Cisco Systems. Currently, Dean is a
  principal with the Texas-based technology and intellectual property
  consultancy group, Softarmor Systems. He also lectures periodically at
  Southern Methodist University.

	"The focus of standards effort in the IETF has been to define
        the "one true Internet presence protocol" that could be used
        ubiquitously from mobile handsets to massive interdomain server
        deployments. This effort has failed: the IETF itself has
        defined two different protocols (SIMPLE and XMPP), and
        commercial deployments have diverged even more widely. Valid
        technical and social reasons drive this divergence. No single
        protocol meets the full range of requirements. The future of
        presence most likely involves multiple specialized protocols
        that are aggregated, mixed, and interwoven in the "mashup "
        style of today's web apps, with information being aggregated and
        remixed by custom server-based applications. Expect to see
        applications that combine availability, location, mapping,
        blogging, messaging, work process, and inventory management,
        among others. This presentation discusses the rationale for
        divergence, the applications expected to drive the future of
        presence in the Internet, and directional shifts in
        standardization efforts that may occur as a result."

        "This presentation will discuss presence applications, services,
        and signaling/network architectures that interwork with
        international VoIP carrier networks, a potential new source of
        revenue for service providers. Business benefits, new sample
        applications and services related to presence information and
        databases, ENUM/SIP registries will be discussed and emphasized
        for real-world applications linked to both PC- and web-based,
        mobile and fixed line services, that may generate more revenues
        and/or reduce operating expenses will providing unique
        applications/services to "on-line" consumers. "

        "Are we in a position to handle our presence states throughout
        all the communities we are joining? The session presents
        challenges and opportunities for behavior, management and
        binding of presence services across multiple communities. Users
        will bind project-groups, collaboration, sports or leisure
        communities as well as real world entities like goods, services
        and shipments in to their presence service of choice. This
        opens a wide range of business opportunities with
        authentication, authorization, user self management and service
        control to upcoming offers."

  events with Asterisk. Olle co-founded Astricon, the Asterisk
  conference and the dCAP Asterisk certifications, He's also a member of
  the Digium Asterisk Advisory Board. 

      "The presence puzzle gets more interesting for every day. 
      Telephony platforms like Asterisk delivers call states and phone
      states, and users want to mix this with their personal presence -
      or do they? And who are allowed to watch my presence? Solving the
      enterprise presence puzzle will be a very interesting task for the
      Internet community. Today, we see first generation solutions that
      doesn't take enterprise needs in consideration. This talk gives a
      personal perspective and wishlist based on work with the Asterisk
      PBX and XMPP/Jabber presence in small and large- scale
      environments." 


* Carsten Schiefner

  Carsten Schiefner works for Telnic Ltd, the registry for .tel. Prior
  to that he held several positions at RIPE NCC, Deutsche Telekom,

      "This year will see the launch of .tel, a new top level domain.
      Traditionally, TLDs have been about mapping domains to IP
      addresses. .tel has a very different purpose: mapping domains to
      contact information stored directly in the DNS. What will this
      bring to the market?"

        "Real-Time Text is conversational text that is sent and
        received on a character by character basis. The characters are
        sent immediately (in a fraction of a second) once typed and
        also displayed immediately to the receiving person(s). This 
        allows text to be used in the same conversational mode as
        voice, making it superior in usage to current instant
        messaging. Being a real internet standard (RFC 4103) it can be 
        easily integrated into new services. A look into the next
        generation of text-based interaction."
