Best Demo Award for DireWolf at ICWE 2014
DireWolf, a framework for Web widget based distributed user interfaces developed at i5 on top of the outcomes of the ROLE EU IP won the best demo award at the 14th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE) in Toulouse, France.
István Koren, Jens Bavendiek and Ralf Klamma received the Best Demo Award at the 14th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE) at Toulouse, France for their poster and demonstration "DireWolf Goes Pack Hunting: A Peer-to-Peer Approach for Secure Low Latency Widget Distribution Using WebRTC". The first version of DireWolf was already presented at last year's ICWE conference in Aalborg, Denmark and was then nominated for the best paper award. DireWolf enables users to distribute user interface widgets across multiple devices while maintaining an event channel across the widgets. For the current version, we used the latest WebRTC draft to allow direct encrypted peer-to-peer connections between the browser instances, which permits new use cases such as gaming. Thanks to all colleagues who contributed to this success, including Dejan Kovachev, Dominik Renzel and Petru Nicolaescu!
The underlying ROLE SDK widget space was developed within the ROLE EU FP7 IP which was finished in March, 2013. DireWolf is available as Open Source and is made fully available for the Learning Layers EU FP7 IP.
The paper is published in the conference proceedings which appeared as Springer LNCS Volume 8541.
