The SRT-15 research project is achieving full maturity, as it is about to enter its third year of execution. During the last twelve months we have witnessed a series of achievements, which are highlighted in this newsletter.

One of the most important events that were co-organized by the SRT-15 project consortium was 6th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event Based Systems in Berlin, Germany. Prof. Christof Fetzer (TU Dresden) served as a Scientific Program co-chair while Zbigniew Jerzak (SAP AG) served as the DEBS 2012 Grand Challenge cochair.
The participation in the conference organisation strengthened also the ties of the SRT-15 research project with other EC funded research projects, most notably PLAY and KAP. Moreover, in the last twelve months the cooperation between consortium partners has significantly strengthened culminating with a donation of a 60 servers cluster from Yahoo! Iberia to the University of Neuchâtel.

The maturity of the SRT-15 research project is further strengthened by the availability of its components for public use (StreamMine3G, the PASC library). Finally, successful dissemination of the results is witnessed by high quality scientific publications (6th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event
Based Systems, 15th International Conference on Extending Database Technology, 2012 USENIX Annual Technical Conference) as well as dissemination in the industrial community (SAP TechEd 2012 Las Vegas, Yahoo! Science Week 2012).

I would like to encourage you to browse through this newsletter and learn more about the relevance of the results of the SRT-15 research project to both industry and academia.
