Paper presented at the FiCloud conference
ALMANAC is among the few currently available approaches to smart cities where federations between different public administrations and private companies are explicitly tackled as core features, involving trust, security and data sharing.

Based on service exchange agreements, covering legal and political issues, the ALMANAC framework enables multiple Programming Interfaces to participate in federations, offering services across entities, cities and nations.



Dario Bonino presented the architecture of federation together with other key features of the platform, including: A middleware supporting semantic interoperability of heterogeneous resources, devices, services and data management; and the integration of external applications, exploiting functions and services through cloud-based REST API's.
