An interactive workshop aimed at discussing and developing ideas for future research priorities in future internet research comprising short presentations and interactive discussion.

Problem Statement and Objectives of the workshop

The workshop aims to identify the topics and big ideas that shape Future Internet beyond current research, reviewing and building on the ideas presented in the Future Internet Assembly Research Roadmap document, and hearing about new ideas or areas not covered in the first version.

Roadmaps of Latin America in the Future Internet research arena compared with the European ones, with the goal of paving the way to joint interests that will consolidate a coherent policy of actions to be conducted at both sides of the Atlantic.

Session organisers:

Antonio Alfaro, Rose Vision

Target audience:

Researchers and research managers who have in interest in the high priority and new topic that should be included in the framework research programme commencing 2014.

Build on previous FIA sessions:

Since FIA Ghent in 2010 the FIA research roadmap working group has compiled a first version of the FIA research document which was presented in outline form at the FIA Plenary Conference in Budapest, May 2011, and has been available for review on the FIA website. In addition we are introducing an international cooperation dimension to the research roadmap through links with the Latin America Countries

Call for participation:

Call for Presentations of New ideas for the FIA Research Roadmap.

The FIA Research Roadmap Working Group has produced the first version of the FIA research roadmap document which will be reviewed at FIA Poznan in October.

We are now seeking new suggestions for high impact ideas that should be included in the roadmap. This is an opportunity to introduce new ideas for research areas for the future internet and we are aiming for distinctive and thought provoking suggestions that are not currently addressed in the roadmap.

To stimulate contributions to this session, a prize (a netbook computer) will be awarded to the presenter of the most interesting and thought provoking idea.

Contributions of no more than two pages in Word (.doc or .docx) format should be sent to session organiser,  Nick Wainwright, by 30th September 2011.

Contributions should address areas not substantially covered in the FIA Research Roadmap V1, and should address 1. The proposed area of research to be include in the research roadmap, 2. The impact that the proposed research will have (i.e. the benefit, the problem solved, the opportunity enabled,) 3. The underpinning technologies and research ideas that would be the starting point for the research.

Selected contributions will be invited to present at the Roadmapping session at FIA Poznan and will be included in a new version of the FIA research roadmap.
