co-located with the17th Summer School on Telecommunications and 7th MiNEMAworkshop
at the Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland

The Wireless World Research Forum (WWRF) is a global organisation, which was founded in August 2001. It now has over 140 members from five continents, representing all sectors of the mobile communications industry and the research community. The objective of the forum is to formulate visions on strategic future research directions in the wireless field, among industry and academia, and to generate, identify, and promote research areas and technical trends for mobile and wireless system technologies.

The Services and Service Architectures Working Group (WG2) is a working group within the WWRF. The working groups exist to gather inputs and views from industry and academia, to synthesise these views, to influence future visions and research priorities, and to share results across the forum. 

Working Group 2 has worked in the area of service architectures and service platforms for future wireless systems.Currently WG2 concentrates on the aspects arising from the different notions of services starting from the definition itself, tackling service semantics and service creation up to needed architectures and building-blocks to setup service provisioning platforms for the future communication systems.

Working groups produce both white papers and briefings on important issues inside and between research areas of each working group. WWRF WG2 Interim meeting arranged at Lappeenranta, Finland concentrates on ongoing efforts on User Profiling white paper and new initiative towards broadcasting industry.

Organizers at the Lappeenranta University of Technology wish all the interested parties welcome to the interim meeting
