ETSI STF 578

ETSI SmartM2M tackles IoT, interoperability, and Semantic Interoperability challenges, contributing to the digital transformation of industry sectors in Europe. The Smart Applications REFerence standard ontology (SAREF) is a key flagship to reach semantic interoperability in IoT and Web-based applications where digitized assets play a central role.

We contribute to the development of the newest version of SAREF and some of the SAREF extensions. We lead the specialist task forces (STFs) aiming to define the collaborative development workflow of SAREF, the official SAREF ontology portal https://saref.etsi.org , and the continous integration and deployment of SAREF using DevOps approaches tailored for ontology engineering. More specifically, we were/are involved in the following STFs:

  • lead of STF 556: Consolidation of SAREF and its community of industrial users, based on the experience of the EUREKA ITEA 12004 SEAS project - https://portal.etsi.org//STF/STFs/STFHomePages/STF556
  • contributor to STF 566: SAREF extensions for Automotive, eHealth/Ageing-well, Wearables and Water - https://portal.etsi.org//STF/STFs/STFHomePages/STF566
  • lead of STF 578: Specification of the SAREF development framework and workflow, and development of the Community SAREF Portal for user engagement - https://portal.etsi.org//STF/STFs/STFHomePages/STF578
