CODECO Industrial Workshop

Title: Flexible and Adaptive Edge to Cloud Orchestration: The CODECO Data-Compute-Network Approach

When: 18.01.2024

Where: Co-located with HIPEAC 2024, Leibniz Supercomputer Centre (LRZ), Seminarium 1(near the Science Congress Center (SCC), Munich)

On January 18th, 2024, the CODECO Project reached a new milestone. Its inception event, hosted by fortiss and the CODECO consortium, was a great success and marked a pivotal moment in the evolution of Edge-Cloud orchestration. The workshop provided a dynamic platform for collaboration and innovation, setting the stage for the future of Edge-Cloud technology.

The workshop featured a series of insightful sessions, including a keynote address by Ricardo Noriega de Soto from Red Hat, who provided valuable perspectives on the evolution from datacenter to edge computing. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage with hands-on sessions, where they interacted with the Eclipse CODECO open-source code, gaining practical insights into the project’s innovative solutions. Additionally, presentations on CODECO use cases highlighted the real-world impact of Edge-Cloud orchestration across various domains. Furthermore, for the first time, CODECO partner Vitor Vieira (INOVA+) presented its Research and Innovation Engagement Programme, encouraging participants to continue their exploration and experimentation beyond the workshop’s conclusion.

Special thanks were extended to HiPEAC for hosting the CODECO Industrial Workshop, and esteemed guests Dr. Selma Azaiez (COGNIFOG Project), Dr. Paul Townend (COGNIT Project) for their invaluable contributions.

Overall, the CODECO Industrial Workshop served as a pivotal platform for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and exploration of cutting-edge solutions in Edge-Cloud orchestration. For those eager to explore further, the presentations and demos can be accessed via HiPEAC.
