Future Internet Architecture (FIArch) Group

Future Internet Architecture Ghent Session  

The European Commission and the FIAch Group cordially invites you to the Future Internet Assembly (FIA) conference  session V: “Architecture Group,” to take place in Ghent on December 16, at 14:30-16:30.

The FIArch Experts Reference Group (ERF) is composed of representatives of the most relevant FP7 research projects in relation to FI architectures and renowned experts from industry and academy covering in a complementarily way all areas related to the Future Internet Architecture. The work of the group is coordinated by the FP7 CSA projects in the area of Future Internet: NextMedia, IOT-I, SOFI, EFFECTS+, EIFFEL, Chorus+ and Paradiso 2, and supported by the EC Units D1: Future Networks, D2: Networked Media Systems, D3: Software & Service Architectures & Infrastructures, D4: Networked Enterprise & Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and F5: Trust and Security.

The aim of FIArch group is to focus on a few key architectural issues, which are shared and agreed by a considerable representation and coverage of FI stakeholders, including FP7 projects and may contribute towards an EC research roadmap towards Future Internet Architecture.

As a first concrete step towards this goal, the FIArch group has been working on the identification and categorization of the “Fundamental Limitations of Current Internet” that could eventually prevent a good functioning of foreseen Future Internet applications. In this open workshop, we would like to present the current progress and receive a first feedback from the EC research community in general.

It is worth to notice that the group has identified a small list of fundamental limitations. Yet, a large slot has been allocated in the workshop’s schedule for interested audience participants, who are invited to present with a qualitative and quantitative justified way additional fundamental limitations. For a better organization of this session, a pre-registration process will be announced in the next few days.
