We have been talking about this event for months. The Adaptation Exhibition finally come and gone, and it was GREAT!
I was a little bit nervous when I arrived in Berlin last week. Actually, I knew that when we selected the artistic projects last winter, that we were not really ready to share the AGILE code: the documentation was missing, the code was not stable, and the integration was not really effective. So, sharing the AGILE software in such context was risky, especially sharing it with people without a strong IoT background.
All the artists stepped up to the task with great artistic ideas and a technical person on their team. So, not only did they have the support of some AGILE partners like Libelium, BioAssist, or ATOS, but they also received everyday support from colleagues, friends and spouses.
The result is really interesting. Each artistic team put a piece of themselves in their project. These were expressed like so:
- Fountains – tackled concern about water pollution
- Still Touchable? – questioned our relationship with objects in a near future
- E-Camera – enriched our photos with our own emotions
- Floral Automaton – mimicked biological processes of our surroundings
- IVI project – architectural experimental design
The atmosphere provided by the location for the exposition (chosen by Jolocom) added depth to the artworks presented. Thanks to Carla, Eric and Joachim for organizing such unique event!
IVI installation is a prototype of architectural experimental design and fabrication. It is the end-result of the architectural programme that was organized in Chania, Greece, by the Architectural Association, school of architecture in London, in October 2016. The intense programme focused its scientific approach in making use of advanced methodologies for architectural design, interactive spatial systems and digital methods for fabrication through a series of parametric morphologies and manipulation of space. Within a period of 10 days the design team researched, tested and realized the prototype.Continue reading

We had a pretty exciting Research Corner this year at EclipseCon France in Toulouse.
It was the first time where we could bring to the Eclipse community a consequent group of research projects and show our strong implication in making these research projects a success. We had represented the following projects:
- AGILE with Csaba Kiraly from FBK, [pitch]
- AMASS with Espinoza Ortiz Huascar from Tecnalia, [pitch]
- APP4MC with Robert Hoettger from Dortmund University, [pitch]
- bIoTope with Tuomas Kinnunen and Jussi Pirila from Aalto University, [pitch]
- CROSSMINER with Davide Di Ruscio from University of L’Aquila, [pitch] and
- RobMoSys with Ansgar RADERMACHER from CEA. [pitch]
You are invited to attend the Adaptation exhibition on July 11-13 in Berlin, Germany.
The event will kick off at 6 pm on July 11 and will be open the two following days. The venue is Agora Rollberg, a Berlin-based experimental center for contemporary practices. The perfect place for this exposition!
You will get to see the four projects that have been working on their art + IoT piece since March. They have been collaborating with some AGILE partners: BioAssist, ATOS, Libelium, and Create-Net who have helped the artists with the AGILE software.
The four projects that will be showcased are:
- E-Camera, by Luisa Fabrizzi
- Floral Automaton, by Thomas Grogan
- Fountains, by Justus Harris and Eric Dolores
- Still Touchable? by Sue Park and Souneil Park
Adaptation will be hosted as a satellite event of the Berlin Tech Open Air. So that’s another excuse you can use to come around, attend workshops & talks and network. If you don’t like networking… you should attend just to see the city of Berlin!
- Launch: July 11 from 6pm to 10pm
- Exhibition: July 12-13 from 11am to 8pm

At the end of June, the Eclipse AGAIL (AGILE) committers will be in Toulouse France for EclipseCon France 2017. It’s an annual Eclipse Foundation event for the French/ European Eclipse community. It’s an opportunities to learn, explore, share, and collaborate on the latest ideas and information about Eclipse technologies, the Eclipse Working Groups, and Eclipse member companies.
EclipseCon France will take place on June 21-22 at the Centre des Congrès Pierre Baudis in Toulouse, France. Here’s what we will be up to at the event:
- Research Booth: where many European Research Projects will be present, including AGILE.
- Talk on June 22: Meet & Greet the Eclipse Research Project Community
- Meeting the community
Register for EclipseCon France and come meet us!
While we are in Toulouse, we will also take the opportunity to meet face-to-face with consortium partners on June 19-20 to discuss the next steps and how best to move this project onward and upward! We will definitely keep you updated.
