Invitation and Call for Papers

The OSADL Networking Day 2018 will take place on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 in Heidelberg/Germany, and we hereby would like to cordially invite all OSADL regular, associate and academic members to participate at this event.

The main topic of this year's Networking Day will be "Next-generation Open Source industrial real-time communication" that particularly focusses on the Publish/Subscribe extensions of the OPC UA protocol and the possible connection with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). However, as always, other topics of current interest will also be covered.

The traditional mix between presentations on current topics of interest and the networking as well as the mutual exchange of ideas among OSADL members has motivated many of you to take part in recent years' OSADL Networking Days. We hope that this will be the case this year as well and are looking forward to welcome many of you on June 20, 2018 in Heidelberg. Please use this registration form for registration. Do you also want to actively contribute with a presentation? If so, we certainly would gratefully acknowledge any such active contribution; in this case please refer to the call for papers and instructions below.

Rationale

Although the "new" approach to industrial networking based on the OPC UA protocol was presented already in 2016, it was only in autumn 2017 at the occasion of the SPS IPC Drives that the so-called Shaper Group, an industrial consortium of major players in the field of industrial networking, moved the topic forward (article in German) and presented (article in German) a much-noticed paper. It was the same occasion of the SPS IPC Drives exhibition that OSADL received a large number of requests to take care of this topic. This interest resulted primarily from the fact that the pure OPC UA technology did not fulfill industrial requirements and the much needed Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) extensions were not available under a usable Open Source implementation at this time. The Pub/Sub extensions are so much needed because the low-power devices that are expected throughout the future Internet of Things do not provide the resources for traditional connection based communication and require the multicast technology of Pub/Sub.

Fraunhofer IOSB in Karlsruhe, Germany, the India based system integrator Kalycito Infotech and OSADL launched a community project that was partially funded by OSADL member companies to remove the above named limitations and to develop an IEC62541-compliant software package with Pub/Sub-extension under the Mozilla 2.0 Open Source license. This has generated a lot of interest that led to the preparation of a follow-up project. All of this finally created the basis to make OPC UA/TSN this year's main Networking Day topic.

Call for papers

At the OSADL Networking Day we want to explore the mentioned issues. We are glad that Fraunhofer and Kalycito already gave us a positive response when we ask them whether they would be available to actively participate at the event. But we are also looking for speakers of the OSADL community who want to share their experiences with us.

As in years before, there are two different presentation formats:

1. 30-minute technical-scientific presentation preferably on the main OPC UA topic or another "hot" topic with general interest for OSADL members. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Practical experience when using the Open Source OPC UA implementation
  • Problems and problem-solving in the context of OPC UA
  • Proposal for software contributions
  • Proposal of new features to be implemented
  • Practical experience with TSN network links
  • Other non OPC UA related "hot" topics with general interest for OSADL members

If you are willing to contribute, we need the title, a short abstract (max 1,200 characters) and a short biography (max 300 characters).

2. 10 to 15-minute short presentation on innovative products, developments and services of OSADL members:
In addition to the planned 30-minutes talks on the mentioned main topic, we have blocked a smaller part of the agenda of the OSADL Networking Day for short presentations on innovative products, developments and services of our members, which may be of interest for the participants. We need a descriptive title. As there is only a limited time frame available for these short presentations, short presentations were considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The deadline for presentation submissions was May 14, 2018.

The conference language of the OSADL Networking Day is English. All presentation material shall be in English too.

Evening event

Subsequent to the conference session you are cordially invited to join us for a tour on the Neckar River with the solar-powered boat "Neckarsonne". After the boat tour, we will have dinner together in a restaurant located in the pedestrian area of the old town of Heidelberg.
