The development of new ICT devices and network-based services has generated a bewildering array of configuration procedures, access technologies and protocols. For non-technical users, excessive complexity is an obstacle to take-up of these new technologies.

The Simplicity project has developed and evaluated  tools, techniques and architectures to remove this complexity, enabling users to customize devices and services with minimal effort. The project showed demonstrators  at the IST Mobile Summit in Dresden, in June 2005 and at the WWI and WWRF meetings in Paris, in December 2005. Public deliverables can be found at

Simplicity's final review took place in Munich, in February 2006. The reviewers' concluded: "The project can be considered as highly successful".
