Feedback on the forum on new mobile services
On January 21, 2011, the latest Inria-Industry Meeting was held at Sophia Antipolis, on the subject of developing new mobile services, the outcome of a partnership between Inria and the Secure Smart Solutions Centre. The event was booked out a fortnight before it took place. It brought together some 200 names from the mobile ecosystem, in attendance to hear talks from 17 speakers and see 17 technology demos from Inria, its spin-offs and industry and academic partners.
The morning session, which featured presentations on the state of the art in terms of mobile device infrastructure and security, also saw debates on the comparative advantages of various application development methods.
The afternoon included testimonials and feedback from local authorities and major companies using "m-commerce" and "contactless" services.
To meet high expectations in terms of the visibility of research work, some fifteen demonstrations of innovative technologies and applications on mobiles were presented by Inria research teams and their technology partners Inria start-ups, SMEs and academic partners.
See you at the next Inria-Industry Meeting later this year in September, in Saclay-Ile de France!
