2. Workshop on international cooperation covering trust management for mobile services during the afternoon of 27th November 2012.
The BIC participants were also encouraged and most welcomed to attend the 2012 Africa-EU Cooperation Forum on ICT Research organised by the EuroAfrica-ICT project being held on 28-29th November 2012 in the same venue. Further information for the EuroAfricaICT Annual forum can be found at http://euroafrica-ict.org/2012-africa-eu-cooperation-forum-on-ict/.

Summary of the BIC Annual Forum 2012
The BIC project’s Annual Forum for 2012 was comprised of two elements:
1. BIC International Advisory Group (IAG) workshop held on the morning of 27th November 2012.
2. BIC IAG Workshop on international cooperation covering trust management for mobile and cloud based services during the afternoon of 27th November 2012.
The talking points of the full day workshop were:
• Review of topics under consideration in the BIC Working groups, WG1. Human oriented/citizen approaches for trust, privacy and security; WG2: Network Information Security / cyber security; and WG3: Programme and funding focus.
• Identification of ‘hot’ topics and future work Items for WGs: To highlight the topics already under discussions in the work groups of BIC and provide input towards future work items for WGs.
• Identification of country wise Projects and Research Priorities: Each country was given the opportunity to present the projects, directions and portfolios of research priorities, emphasis and growth areas of interest where international cooperation is an imperative e.g. trust and security, highlighting some recent examples.
• Identification of tangible project/programme mechanisms: To work out a clear and well defined mechanism to manage projects and programme with an emphasis on fostering meaningful international cooperation (for short term and longer term impact).
• Identification of Success Metrics: The BIC workshop in June 2012 brainstormed on the identification of meaningful success metrics for international projects. These were presented and the IAG members provided inputs with their own views.
• Establishment of the BIC/ IAG Structure with Long Term Perspective: The initial proposed structure from the workshop held in June 2012 regarding a longer term strategic approach was presented and discussed with the IAG members. As this structure is for a longer term and would extend beyond the lifetime of BIC to be fully up and running (more geared towards H2020), this IAG meeting was extremely important as a planning instrument to further develop the model, and to gain support from a number of exemplar countries that would be willing to take the lead in the establishment of the proposed structure as an inducement to other countries to also participate. It would also provide an early opportunity to identify any barriers to participation.
•Defining Modalities of Core Working Groups (CWGs), Extended Working Groups (EWGs) and Special Function Groups (SFGs): Evolution of the new modalities for oversight of Extended Working Groups (EWGs) and Special Function Groups) at the participating countries level by the IAG could be a key theme besides defining a roadmap to achieve Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as derived from an agreed success metric. This aspect has to factor the sanctioned life (36 months) of the BIC project until the end 2013 and desirability of carrying forward after this and aligning with the H2020 vision, whilst finalising recommendations for EC. The structure and relationship of the CWG, EWGs & SFGs with regard to IAG, as presented first at the June workshop were discussed and further refined at the BIC IAG Annual Forum 2012.
• Examination of trust management models in different contexts and cultures and determining the mutual benefit for international cooperation: Analysing differences, commonalities, synergies between the trust models based in the western world and emerging countries with a view to collaboration; Discussion of the impact on various technologies including mobile and cloud infrastructures in order to support and grow business ecosystems; Identification of on-going projects and the building of tangible project ideas forming; and Next steps – way to move forward on this topic.
The afternoon workshop concentrated wholly on international cooperation for this research topic to put us in a better position to form consortia that can work on research/ development/ implementation/ stages for this work.
The slides presented are available above including a conclusions and wrap up presentation and a report is now available at BIC Annual forum 2012 report Final. Additional discussion papers are available at the Project impact section of the BIC site. If you are involved in this research topic from any perspective and are interested to participate and provide additional inputs, please send a position paper on this topic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As mentioned above, the BIC events took place at the same location as the 2012 Africa-EU Cooperation Forum on ICT Research organised by the EuroAfrica-ICT project on 28-29th November 2012. The venue was the Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB) located between Jéronimos Monastery and Belém Tower in Lisbon, Portugal.
