5th Future Internet Cluster Workshop with Special Focus on Future Network Architectures

5th Future Internet Cluster Workshop with Special Focus on Future Network Architectures (2nd Topic Workshop on Future Network Architectures)

Date: Tuesday June 14, 2011

Location: Warsaw, Poland (collated with FNMobile Summit)



In the recent years, several Future Internet initiatives have proposed views on what the architectures of the networks of the future could be. Recent concertation meetings were devoted to introduce the projects contributing to this domain as well as their own visions and roadmaps. These meetings were fruitful as facilitators for information exchange and for promoting synergies among the projects.

Since March 2010, the European Commission and the FP7 Network of Excellence “Euro-NF” have organised four Future Internet Cluster Workshops (FICWs) on specific topics with a broad potential impact for Europe, ranging from Future Network Architectures (First FICW) via mobility and security (Second FICW) to socio-economic aspects of Future Internet (Third FICW) and ICT and Sustainability (Fourth FICW).

The Fifth FICW on Future Network Architectures aims at an update and the discussion of the achievements of projects presented at the previous event as well as on the discussion of future work.

Technical Objectives

This Fifth Future Internet Cluster Workshop on June 14, 2011 will consist of one Session devoted to Future Internet architectures, specifically:

- Information-centric networking

- The role of virtualization in future network architectures

- Future Smart Connectivity, e.g.: seamless connectivity of fixed and mobile networks, network federation, smart multi-homing.

Organization of the workshops


The meeting will be structured as follows:

- A session will last one half-day and is composed of 2-4 presentations.
