On November 27, 2017, the second workshop on Next-Generation Emergency Communications organized by the EMYNOS project successfully took place at the headquarters of the Spanish National Police in Madrid. The event gathered more than 60 stakeholders from the research, industry and end-user communities, including organizations working in 112 emergency services.
This workshop focused on presenting the EMYNOS project ESInet, particularly, in terms of architecture specification and implementation regarding total conversation, WebRTC based emergency calls, accurate location for emergency calls, and solutions for persons with disabilities.
In addition to the presentations from the EMYNOS partners, the event also featured key talks from Madrid 112 centre and the NEXES project, followed by a roundtable session where the main speakers answered to the audience’s questions and discussed the future of emergency communications.
A hackathon took place in parallel to give an overview of the EMYNOS testbed/ESInet and conduct interoperability tests. Various organizations and projects attended the hackathon including The NEXES project and HUAWEI.
The workshop was collocated with the 17th PSCE Conference, where an overview of EMYNOS was further presented by Yacine Rebahi on November 29th. The EMYNOS presentation generated a variety of questions by the audience illustrating the widespread interest in the project development and achievements.
