Barrow , 17 How. Judicial Council, Twelfth Ann. New subdivision a defines the persons whose joinder in the action is desirable. The interests that are being furthered here are not only those of the parties, but also that of the public in avoiding repeated lawsuits on the same essential subject matter.
Clause 2 i recognizes the importance of protecting the person whose joinder is in question against the practical prejudice to him which may arise through a disposition of the action in his absence.
Clause 2 ii recognizes the need for considering whether a party may be left, after the adjudication, in a position where a person not joined can subject him to a double or otherwise inconsistent liability. See Reed, supra, 55 Mich. See 3 Moore's Federal Practice 2d ed. Joinder of these tortfeasors continues to be regulated by Rule 20; compare Rule 14 on third-party practice. If a person as described in subdivision a 1 2 is amenable to service of process and his joinder would not deprive the court of jurisdiction in the sense of competence over the action, he should be joined as a party; and if he has not been joined, the court should order him to be brought into the action.
If a party joined has a valid objection to the venue and chooses to assert it, he will be dismissed from the action. That this decision is to be made in the light of pragmatic considerations has often been acknowledged by the courts. Iron Moulders, Union , U. The subdivision sets out four relevant considerations drawn from the experience revealed in the decided cases. The factors are to a certain extent overlapping, and they are not intended to exclude other considerations which may be applicable in particular situations.
The first factor brings in a consideration of what a judgment in the action would mean to the absentee. Would the absentee be adversely affected in a practical sense, and if so, would the prejudice be immediate and serious, or remote and minor? The possible collateral consequences of the judgment upon the parties already joined are also to be appraised.
Would any party be exposed to a fresh action by the absentee, and if so, how serious is the threat? See the elaborate discussion in Reed, supra; cf. Dickson , F. The second factor calls attention to the measures by which prejudice may be averted or lessened. Deavers , F. Nickel , F. Labor Board , U. Sometimes the party is himself able to take measures to avoid prejudice. Thus a defendant faced with a prospect of a second suit by an absentee may be in a position to bring the latter into the action by defensive interpleader.
Newell , F. Kirk , F. Brayton Flying Service, Inc. See also the absentee may sometimes be able to avert prejudice to himself by voluntarily appearing in the action or intervening on an ancillary basis. See Developments in the Law , supra, 71 Harv. Middleton , F. Duggins , F. McCormack , F. The court should consider whether this, in turn, would impose undue hardship on the absentee. For the possibility of the court's informing an absentee of the pendency of the action, see comment under subdivision c below.
Modelling of TV viewing behaviour using biometric and ambient devices, cross-domain recommendations, user-content affinity mapping, portable user profile and comprehension of audience retention as a cognitive process are some interesting use-cases that this solution addresses. We are writing this email to show our interest in attending the Workshop.
The SERAMIS project aims at covering the entire causal chain from the initial investment in an RFID data collection infrastructure to the impact of data processing on firm performance and customer satisfaction. Therefore, scalable and robust but also privacy-preserving techniques are required to deal with the large amount of RFID data.
The use of standards in these techniques is crucial to allow industry and researchers to cooperate openly and not be bound to vendor specific closed solutions. The GET Service project http: Within the project, our goal is to develop a component for the monitoring of multimodal transport chains.
To this end, we rely on Complex Event Processing techniques, in order to capture and aggregate dynamic information at runtime coming from heterogeneous data and event sources, e. Some of the use-cases in the group stem from the GET Service project.
The participation in the W3C Workshop on the Web of Things would enable us to exchange emerging ideas and state-of-the-art between academia and industry. Therefore, we kindly ask you to accept our request for having one member of our team attending the workshop. I look forward to participating in the workshop. A Web Of Things will enable application level interoperability.
Application software will make use of sensors, actuators, and other data sources, analogous to the way humans make use of information on the World Wide Web. To make this a reality, hypermedia driven APIs can be annotated with machine understandable hyperlinks.
We are seeing the emergence of architectures for the deployment of IoT services. What is still needed for application interoperability is a common set of high level patterns for the creation, manipulation, and use of descriptive, machine understandable hyperlinks, built on underlying web standard mechanisms and protocols.
Information models can be built on a base of reusable concepts, relations, and attributes. The W3C could become a venue for standardizing information models that accommodate existing information and data models, enhance the functionality of existing models, as well as standardize new information models.
I would like to participate in the WoT workshop this June. Please find my position paper attached to this e-mail. It would be great, if we could somehow coordinate our efforts to bring the Web of Things to reality. Abstract — The idea of the Web of Things WoT is to adopt the ubiquitous protocols and well-known patterns of the World Wide Web to build an Internet of Things IoT that is interoperable, easy to program, and intuitive to use. The WoT architecture must follow the end-to-end principle to get out of the current fragmentation of IoT devices, and hence must eliminate application-level gateways that simply hide vertical silos.
For such an end-to-end Web experience, we also need to adopt solutions for resource-constrained devices, as they are expected to constitute the majority of the IoT.
We have shown in previous work that CoAP enables Web-like programming models for resource constrained devices and that users prefer theWeb-like interaction for networked embedded systems. We propose to push further and make it part of the set of contemporary specifications implemented by Web browsers and provide standardized APIs to make CoAP-based devices firstclass citizens of the Web.
Please find enclosed our contribution Object Security in Web of Things to the workshop. We are hoping and assuming that there will be a chance to polish the contribution before it is published on the W3C site.
In case the contribution is not accepted, we would like to express our interest of participation. As per instructions, we therefore would like to describe some reasons for our participation. The matter of security in general and privacy in particular is important to the future where many billions of devices will be connected, most with wireless technologies, a future where Ericsson is one of many companies contributing.
It is our whish and objective to contribute to problem definition and development of technologies to the best of our capability and we believe this workshop is an excellent opportunity to engage in discussions about how to take the next step in addressing the challenges described in the work shop scope.
The Web of Things brings new challenges that cannot be solved in a satisfactory way with only transport layer security. A more flexible solution is required, both to protect sensitive data and user privacy but also to distribute policies in a secure and standardized way. In this position paper we propose a base architecture and examine candidate open standards to provide security and privacy on the application layer. While this paper has an IoT focus, the same privacy problems arise in the general web setting with processing and storage more and more moving into the cloud.
He is also interested in combining RDF and Websocket to build a standardised protocol that enables ubiquitous computation for WoT. I'd like to express our interest on consumer electronics and the Web of Things, see slides.
The purpose of this email is to express my interest in participating in the WoT workshop organized in Berlin. The web nowadays is not just a place where documents and people converge, but it is also a natural environment for 'things' to interact in many different ways.
It is clear that for this to materialize, we need to focus not only in the hardware, network and protocol challenges, but also -and for me most importantly- in the ability to agree on models, and meaning of the information that 'things' publish, use, or interchange. I believe that the Web of things workshop can be a starting point where research, industry and standardization can work together towards this goal. In particular, I have been participating in the RDF stream processing and Semantic sensor networks community groups, where some of these issues have been studied to some point.
We have also launched and participated in several projects in this area, including SemSorGrid4Env, OpenIoT or OpenSense, where we dealt with several of the challenges presented here. The lessons learned in these years seem to indicate that semantics and the standards fostered by W3C will play a key role to enable the realization of the Web of Things.
I am interested in contributing to this effort and learning from others in this path. Please, find enclosed a Position Paper in the scope of Preventive Healthcare at home and hospitals. I would be thankful to receive a submission confirmation. Here we submit a position paper that briefly express our interest on this workshop on Web of Things. If we get a chance to present at the workshop, different presentation material will be prepared for more explanation.
Please find Your Internet of Everything's position paper Process orchestration and control across Your Internet of Everything Why connectivity is not enough regarding Enablers and services for an open Web of Devices for your review.
This position paper outlines accessibility implications in the Web of Things from two perspectives:. It offers important considerations for the web standards community to incorporate accessibility consistently throughout the stack of web technologies and applications built using these technologies. It describes the ETRI project: The attached is my expression of interest for the Web of things. It describes service platform with Web based interface to control devices.
As a long serving W3C member Software AG is interested to enable the deep integration of IoT functionality and data within services especially within enterprise software and for the industry 4. I will be also able to represent positions of one of the larger European IoT research projects iCore, which focuses on utilizing cognitve technology for IoT with up to 20 European companies and research organisations.
We manufacture automation and efficiency hardware, software and solutions. For our customers we integrate automation technology and help them to safe energy with highly efficient automation solutions for their buildings and premises. The internet of things will open new possibilities for our customers and redefine the way we do business.
Having the chance, to discuss this within your workshop, would be a great opportunity. Being responsible for Building Management Systems and Energy Management Software, I would highly appreciate to be invited to your workshop and hope, that my late expression for interest is accepted.
Looking forward being part of the workshop. The EDF Group is a leading electricity player, active in all major electricity businesses: I currently assist lines of Business in the realization of strategic transformations like Smart Grids , through the use of Enterprise Architecture principles and methodologies. I am interested to participate in your workshop because of the importance of the Internet Of Things for a utility company like EDF: We enable Bosch internal partners and technology for the Internet of Things and Services and work on Industry 4.
On top of that we are involved in the I4. The representative at Bosch for this committees is Mr. Based on its vision of a user-centric ubiquitous computing and communication environment, Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS researches and develops mobile communication systems in wireless and wired networks by engineering the elements that enable the complete seamless integration of technology with end devices and the deployment of open flexible communication services and applications.

Hello, I am interested in attending the workshop to understand the direction leaders are taking. We are a start-up in the IoT space currently incubated at in Chicago.
Looking forward to your response. Here is my position paper OMM: Abstract—In this paper we address the research question, how an structuring model for digital object memories DOMe has to be designed. Primary goal is to identify and develop components and processes of an architecture concept particularly suited to represent, manage, and use digital object memories.
In order to leverage acceptance and deployment of this novel technology, the envisioned infrastructure has to include tools for integration of new systems, and for migration with existing systems. Special requirements to object memories result from the heterogeneity of data in so-called open-loop scenarios. On the one hand, it has to be flexible enough to handle different data types.
On the other hand, a simple and structured data access is required. Depending on the application scenario, the latter one needs to be complemented with concepts for a rightsand role-based access and version control. Please find attached our position paper on smart social spaces: In our vision, the social web could become the main driver of adoption of the web of things into people's everyday lives just as social networks onboarded millions of new users to the web, they may do the same with things by leveraging their popular communication and relationships paradigm.
In this context we intend to promote the creation of means for gathering and growing the social web of things community through networking and joint research activities, with the objective of identifying and leading future standardization opportunities in that space. Please find attached our position paper on our observations on how to realize the potential for the Web of Things.
Note that if accepted, Jason Proctor will be the attending participant from Monohm. Please find attached our position paper: Web of Things Technologies for Embedded Applications. Web of things beyond controlling embedded devices with smart phones — this contribution raises the question what motivates making embedded devices full citizens of the web, what is required to integrate them, and provides examples for relevant technologies which starts to enable such an integration.
Concretely we discuss based on the application domains of smart home and smart grid motivation, use cases and requirements for a web integration. The Consumer Electronics Association, an ANSI-accredited standards development organization, has an interest in the Internet of Things and the standards which may impact some of our thousands of member companies.
In addition, we believe there may be opportunities for joint standards development. CEA would like to offer a short target 15 minutes presentation on related standards activity at CEA and considerations for joint efforts with W3C. The Web of Things is here to come: On Thingful, a discoverability engine for The Public Internet of Things, you can see where things are, who owns them, and how and why they are used.
The increasing availability of connected devices and apps is already changing the way people and things cooperate. In DQuid, we believe that the deployment of smart objects is only the initial step towards the Web of Things, that is a full network of connected devices capable of interacting with other devices and with humans, and possibly involving some intelligence hosted in the cloud. For such a vision to become practical, there is the need for a set of software solutions for building applications that exploits smart objects, enable the interaction between objects and engineer the generated data.
In this paper, after briefly summarizing the current scenario for the IoT, we identify some open challenges and detail the DQuid approach to tackle a specific challenge: Please find attached our expression of interest on the distributed social web and its relevance to the web of things. Please find attached my expression of interest on the web of things: I am the new person in charge of web of things at GS1 France.
I am interested in attending to better understand the work of W3C and how GS1 standards could fit in this initiative. Complex Event Processing CEP is an enabling technology to extract actionable, situated knowledge from large amounts of event data in near real-time. This real-time behaviour is considered as one of the main prerequisites for many highly relevant technology trends such as predictive business, real-time adaptive enterprise or autonomic systems.
CEP is now one of the fastest growing segments in distributed enterprise middleware software, with products provided by major software vendors and many start-up companies around the world. They can use SCEP-generated knowledge to derive further decisions and trigger automated reactions.
Moreover, EPLs can exploit the declarative expressiveness of semantic rules as a means to specify knowledge in a way that is understandable by 'the business' and is executable by CEP rule engines.
Complex Event Processing CEP , often related to as Business Activity Monitoring BAM , includes tools that monitor the events in the enterprise and are not only able to aggregate data into higher-level complex events but also to detect unusual event patterns that may need an alert.
Besides many existing ontologies for events, time, space etc. As defined in the EPTS Event Processing Reference Architecture , events are picked up by monitoring functions, aggregated, evaluated and responded to; all these activities are steered by rules. Semantic Web technology can play an important role in the further development of the Internet of Things.
Given the enormous amounts of data that will be produced in this kind of things and applications, a purely syntactic approach is too limiting in the long run. However, not only semantic but also pragmatic aspects such as dealing with context should be taken into account. The event-driven approach separates the social aspect from the physical aspect, but the social aspect, e.
This real-time event processing logic of SCEP and the real-time behavior of decision and reaction rules needs to be embedded into intelligent end-user programmable smart agents on the Pragmatic Web . Such smart Web agents, with their internal and external semantic knowledge and their pragmatic rule-based decision and interactive reaction logic might lead to a transformation of the current passive Web to an ubiquitous active Pragmatic Web 4.
This new Web will be inherently event driven with loosely-coupled and decoupled interactions, but with adaptive and real-time behavior. Oracle, an enterprise cloud software provider, has recognized the potential for connected sensors and actuators. Wearable devices are becoming popular, as is the quantified-self movement. Oracle is creating products that address these trends.
More details are given in our position paper. Ubiquitous computing which has been extensively studied for many years, is experiencing radical changes recently as the physical world devices, e.
In parallel, the communication techniques also make much progress recently. Before progressing W3C standardization activity, we need to consider in several perspectives, e.
Though now cannot define the general requirements in detail, W3C seems necessary to consider further for the under standardization issues. For more details, please see our position paper on Considerations on Standardization of WoT. In order to minimise the cost and resource requirements of attached web-of-things devices, the devices themselves should not be required to do much more than the task they are designed for; user-interface tasks in particular should be outsourced to external devices with sufficient spare resources.
XForms is a particularly flexible way of doing this, with an added advantage of the speed with which applications can be built, in comparison with traditional methods. More details are given in my position paper. The Internet of Things perspective, together with Cloud technologies and Big Data approaches, needs certainly to include the services perspective. At the same time services will be needed on all levels where information processing and decision making based on sensor data will take place.
Examing the potential for open standards as a basis for services, either in and between devices, at the network edge, in home hubs, or in the cloud is crucial for the implementation of services. The goal should be to stimulate the creation of open ecosystems with open APIs and a basic set of standards for allowing a broad implementation of innovative services.
The real World consists of physical things that computer software can interact with through sensors and actuators. This can be combined with rich descriptions, e. Home Tax Topics Topic No. Topic Number - Interest Received Most interest that you receive or that is credited to an account that you can withdraw without penalty is taxable income in the year it becomes available to you. They include dividends on deposits or on share accounts in cooperative banks, credit unions, domestic building and loan associations, domestic federal savings and loan associations, and mutual savings banks.
Interest income from Treasury bills, notes and bonds - This interest is subject to federal income tax, but is exempt from all state and local income taxes. Savings Bond interest - You can elect to include the interest in income each year, but you generally won't include interest on Series EE and Series I U. Savings Bonds until the earlier of when the bonds mature or when they're redeemed or disposed of.
