Knowledge sharing & disseminating is our mission!
The UNITE workshop in the Baltic countries intends to introduce the UNITE Secondment Mobility Programme for cooperative research in Enterprise Interoperability, Enterprise Software Applications (ESA), and the novel research domains of the Future of the Internet. The UNITE is coordination action project FP7-248583 Upgrading ICT excellence by strengthening cooperation between research teams in an enlarged Europe http://www.unite-europe.eu/. It aims to support the flow of skilled people among universities, research institutions, and business-related companies between countries of the old member states (EU 15) and the countries of the new member states (EU 27), and vice-versa.
The workshop invites PhD students, postgraduate students, professors, researchers, IT experts and other specialists involved in ICT research and especially in high priority topics of the Future Internet such as integrated solutions for inter-enterprise interoperability, collaboration and networked enterprises, architectures and platforms for the integrated enterprise, next generation RFID, sensor networks, enterprise software applications, service architectures & components, virtualised infrastructures, innovative services and software engineering methods and tools, Network of the Future, 3D and Media Internet, Trustworthy ICT.
The workshop agenda includes:
RTU - Riga Technical University ITI Department of Modelling and Simulation, and the Doctoral School (RTU, Riga, Latvia) in cooperation with the UNITE project and UNINOVA - Institute for the Development of New Technologies (UNINOVA, Lisbon, Portugal).

THE UNINOVA Institute is a multidisciplinary, independent, and non-profit research institute formed in 1986 by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT-UNL: www.fct.unl.pt), industrial associations, a financial holding, and up to 30 companies. The main aim of UNINOVA is to pursue excellence in scientific research, technical development and advanced training and education. The staff works closely with industry and universities, technological innovations being transferred to profitable business concepts and, existing products, further developed to match new industrial requirements. Specific areas of expertise: Strategies for Interoperability and Information Integration using standards; intelligent infrastructures and architectures; Distributed Systems for Integrated Data Management and Electronic Commerce; Open platforms, Architectures and Toolkits to support and speed-up the implementation of local and web-based Electronic Data Interchange using and integrating standards, and others.
Riga Technical University (www.rtu.lv) is the oldest higher school in Latvia founded in 1862. Riga Technical University is the main technical university in Latvia. It offers advanced study programmes in Engineering, Technology and Architecture and incorporates 8 faculties with the total number of about 16 000 students including 400 PhD students and 760 academic staff members. Department of Modelling and Simulation (www.itl.rtu.lv/mik) operates at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, within its Institute of Information Technology. The department is a basic institution for the Latvian Simulation Society, the Latvian centre of the International McLeod Institute of Simulation Sciences (of the Society for Modelling and Simulation International, SCS) and Riga Technical University Student Chapter of the SCS. The department is permanently involved into performing research and educational projects within programmes of the European Commission, such as Inco-Copernicus, 5th FWP IST and GROWTH, FP6 NMP, ERAF, ERASMUS Networks, Tempus, Lifelong Learning Programme, and Leonardo da Vinci.
