Transcript of From PLANET to PLANET II

  • Motivation for PLANET

    The initial state of PLANET

    High quality standards in European P&S research

    Low awareness of the technology in Europe

    Collaboration mostly on person-to-person bases

    Few pan-European efforts on joint R&D projects

    The US DARPA/Rome Laboratory P&S initiative

  • General Aims of PLANETBuild a co-ordinated framework to support P&S research,development, and technology transfer in Europe

    Encourage and support pan-European co-operation between research groups and industry

    Promote technology transfer through the early involvement of industrial partners

    Co-ordinate the training and exchange of researchers and people from industry and administration

    Provide an information infrastructure and a representative source of expertise

  • Achievements of PLANET (1)PLANET created a common framework and infrastructure to support pan-European research, development, and technology transfer Increase of mutual awareness between European research groups in academia and industry

    Involvement of industrial partners

    Increase of awareness of the technology outside the field (?)

  • Development of the Network65 nodes in 14 countries - 16 industrial companies 7 SMEs - 16 research centres - 33 universities10 associated members - end-user organisations - consultancy companies - software vendors

  • Achievements of PLANET (2)PLANET concentrated its work on a number of areas of particular interest maintaining responsiveness - new technological developments - needs of network members and community

    maintaining continuity - focused and goal-directed work

  • TCUs of PLANETIdentification of areas according to current needs, opportunities, and critical mass among network members

  • Achievement s of PLANET (3)It reflects and identifies the current state of the technology recent developments relations to other fileds and (TCU) areas problems and deficiencies w.r.t. real application requirements issues to be addressed in order to achieve an effective and rapid transfer of the technologydirections for potential exploitations application-driven improvements of methodologies and techniquesdevelopment plans for focused actionsPLANET produced a comprehensive road map

  • Network Activities (1)Organisation of 20 TCU workshopsInitiation and organisation of the International Summer School on AI PlanningSponsoring of P&S conferencesSupport of cross-site visitsSupport of open workshops at conferencesOrganisation of general network meetings

  • Network Activities (2)Technology Information Days -An offer to people form industrial companies and authoritiesOverview of the technology

    Demonstration of successful industrial applications of planning and scheduling

    Reports on increased profitability and responsiveness

  • PLANET II Develop information society technologies to enable workers and enterprises to increase their competitiveness in the global market place improvement of the quality of the individuals working life freedom from many constraints on working methods and organisation

    Key R&D requirements include development of novel architectures and solutions for interoperability, scalability, customisability, dependability adoption of user centred design principlesPLANET II is more consequently settled within the IST Key Action II

    New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce

  • General Aims of PLANET IIPLANET II will build upon the achievements of PLANET continue many of PLANETs activities inresearch and developmenttechnology transfer training and exchangeproviding an information infrastructure

    take up additional initiatives

    contribute to the KA II work programmee-work systems: new work place designs, ...knowledge management: sharing and delivery of knowledge, ...organisation: team-work, workflow, new services, ...
