The International Conference on Telecommunications and Multimedia (TEMU) 2016 has provided a Forum for discussion on recent advances in wired and wireless communication systems, audio-visual applications and content creation/delivery technologies, Internet services and interactive applications, as well as on tools and techniques for their performance evaluation and QoS/QoE validation under simulated and real conditions environments.

TEMU was launched in 2006 as a bi-annual international conference, motivated by the ever-increasing interest in the above R&D fields, their strategic importance in humans’ everyday life and their impact on users’ personal and social activities. TEMU 2016 celebrated its ten-year anniversary under the Technical Co-Sponsorship of IEEE/ComSoc.

The 2016 TEMU Conference has taken place at Heraklion, Crete, Greece, providing three-days Scientific Program from July 25-27, 2016.

Mr. Sebastien Ziegler (MI) has organized a Session on “IoT Testbeds as a Service (IoTaaS)” with a presentation of Privacy Flag project.

The following figure provides a highlight of the respective Session with the involvement of Dr. Latif Ladid (UL) as Panel Chair and Mr. Sebastien Ziegler (MI), Mr. Luca Bolognini (IIP), Prof. Sotiris Nikoletseas (CTI) and Dr. Srdjan Krço (DNET) as experts-panelists.

This Session has highlighted and discussed several paradigm shifts in the way IoT research and IoT testbeds are addressing these new constraints and opportunities. In particular, it has illustrated this evolution through various examples, including research prelim results from European Research projects, such as IoT Lab[1] (GA No.610477), F-Interop[2] (GA No.687884) and Privacy Flag, thus offering an excellent additional opportunity for interactivity with various actual EU-funded projects.
