The Real Time Rome project is an example of an urban-wide real-time monitoring system that collects and processes data provided by telecommunications networks and transportation systems in order to understand patterns of daily life in Rome. On huge screens every citizen could watch the distribution of people over the city. Interesting results could be derived by monitoring the distribution at special events, by analyzing the attractiveness of historic sites or by comparing the flow of bus transportation systems and the distribution of citizens.

The framework consists of: (1) A theory to guide the design and the evaluation of pervasive awareness systems for supporting social communication, and (2) Supporting technology (service oriented architecture, tools and applications that support communities to appropriate Pervasive Awareness applications). 2 DAIDALOS DAIDALOS (Designing Advanced network Interfaces for the Delivery and Administration of Location independent, Optimised personal Services - phase 1: IST-2002506997, phase 2: IST-2005-026943) is an Integrated Project in the Thematic Priority 'Information Society Technologies' of EU Framework Programme 6 for Research and Development.

One of the goals of the workshop was to bring together and compare experiences gained in these projects, opening the discussion to external partners. 1 ASTRA ASTRA (Awareness Services and Systems – Towards theory and ReAlization IST29266) is a project funded by the EC under the FP6-IST programme, Future and Emerging Technology (FET).
