About CHER21, 2018, Sozopol, Bulgaria
The International Conference "Challenges in Higher Education and Research in XXI Century" (CHER21) took place from May 29 to June 1, 2018 in the small Black Sea town of Sozopol.
The conference was organized by the Technical University in Sofia, Bulgaria and was opened by the vice-rector Prof.Dr. Kralov. This conference is unique in that scientists from different generations meet here to discuss projects and ideas in different areas of human knowledge. The other hallmark of this conference is the participation of young scientists from Bulgaria and other regions of the world.
The conference was attended by representatives from Bulgaria, Colombia, Morocco and Trinidad.
The ASPires Project was presented with a report "Conceptual Model of a Stationary Surveillance System for the early warning of Forest Fires - ASPires-GEO", presented by Associate Professor Dr. Radoslav Deliyski, lecturer at the English Language Faculty of Engineering of the Technical University. The report received particular attention during the plenary session. The presentation was recorded live in order to publicize the research.
The report will be published in a specialized conference book.

ASPires Project at RETTmobil, Fulda, Germany, 2018
The exhibition RETTmobil started in 2001 as the European Leading Exhibition for Rescue and Mobility. It attracts more than 27.000 visitors.
The exhibition RETTmobil is the global forum for innovation, safety, quality, competence and training. This is the first address and indispensable platform for all full-time and honorary rescuers and volunteers from rescue organisations, for their professional and managerial staff, for users from ministries, municipalities and associations. The exhibition focuses on the tradition and progress, achievement and success, for which there is no comparison on the continent. The event is an impulse for the sector and the economy and for all who help and rescue, as well as for those who need help.
The RETTmobil exhibition offers 70,000 square metres of total exhibition space, 19 exhibition halls, extensive outside area, off-road demonstration course, test track for driving safety exercises, workshops and forums, emergency rescue-medical training courses and free visitor parking.
The impressive development, excellent reputation and the huge success of RETTmobil evolving in just 16 years from a national trade show to a top international exhibition rests on three pillars:
Exhibition. RETTmobil presents products, innovations and services: products of renowned manufacturers of ambulance and emergency rescue vehicles, as well as renowned exhibitors from the fields of vehicle equipment, emergency medicine, clothing, radio technology, publishers, trade associations, aid associations, fire fighters and armed forces, as well as products from others involved in the sector.
Education. An important addition to the extensive information provided by RETTmobil is the professional program with renowned speakers. "From practice - for practice" is the motto of the emergency rescue medical training courses and workshops. The importance of RETTmobil is substantiated by the fact that the heads of the Association of Fire Services in Germany (AGBF Bund) and the Associations of Firefighters in Rescue (AG FReDI) participate in the forums and the exhibition.
Mobility. The attractiveness of RETTmobil is essentially determined by the issue of mobility, which can be learned and practised in demonstrations and exercises. An open air off-road park and an integrated test track provides excellent conditions. The interested visitors can impressively experience mobility with the latest vehicles and rescue equipment. The Bundeswehr (the German Army) exhibits a variety of new ambulances on the off-road course.
Messe Fulda GmbH organises and manages RETTmobil.

The workshop was held during the RETTmobil exhibition on the 17th of May 2018. Stakeholders and visitors was briefed about and actively involved in the ASPires project, including demonstrations prepared by the ASPires Fulda team and the project partners.
Prof. Dr. Peinl presented the ASPires project, dealing with fighting and preventing forest fires. Prof. Dr. Peinl, as representative of University of Applied Sciences Fulda, has presented the current results of the ASPires project.
He was supported by project partners from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and the Republic of Bulgaria. The workshop participants had the opportunity to learn more about the ASPires project. The topics of sensor, drone and platform applications for fighting and preventing forest fires were presented.
The participants included representatives of the fire brigade of the city and the district of Fulda, representatives from the interior ministries of Hesse, Lower Saxony and Bavaria, representatives of the Hessian Fire Brigade School and participants from industry.
The workshop was also supported by students from the University of Applied Sciences, Fulda. Some of the workshop participants took the opportunity to exchange ideas with the ASPires project partners at a subsequent networking event in Research and Transfer Center of the University of Applied Sciences, Fulda . Important contacts were initiated for the further course of the project.
6th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies
The 6th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies was held from 27 March to 29 March 2018, in Naples(Italy). WorldCIST is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss recent results and innovations, current trends, professional experiences and the challenges of modern information systems and technologies research together with their technological development and applications. Nearly 200 scientists from the whole world visited the conference and enjoyed an excellent atmosphere for knowledge sharing and networking. The project, its challenges and the ASPires approach were presented by Ivelin Andreev (Interconsult Bulgaria Ltd.). The presentation attracted significant attention and opened place for multiple discussions not only during the presentation but within the next 2 days.
The ASPires advanced IoT platform paper passed the strict criteria of a triple "blind review" and qualified among the proceedings from the conference. As further sign of recognition it was also published in "Trends and Advances in Information Systems and Technologies vol.3" book which shall further increase the impact and aid to higher awareness of the ASPires contribution across the scientific community.

ASPires Project Presentation - Smart Cities 2018, Sofia, Bilgaria
A presentation about ASPires Multi Sensor Module was hold by Mr. Plamen Kirov. The presentation shows the ASPires GEO Components and their interaction. The Live Demonstration from the already installed cameras direction mountain Vitosha was a real eye-catcher for the most of the visitors. The interest in the project was enormous and the curiosity about the technology came from different corners of the world.
