FutureNet II


In the past few years, there has been a renewed worldwide interest in future Internet architectures, leading to early-stage research programs such as NSF FIND/GENI in the US, FP7 in Europe and NWGN in Japan. The objective of these R&D programs is to evolve or re-architect the Internet protocol to improve security and usability, incorporate new optical and wireless technologies and better serve the next generation of content, mobile and pervasive network services. The International Workshop on the Network of the Future (FutureNet) is a platform for both evolutionary and clean-slate approaches for redesign of the Internet. The event will uniquely bring together approaches driven by mobile and wireless requirements, network virtualization, network self-management, content and sensor networking and discuss these from both a technical as well as socio-economic perspective.

Topics of Interest

The workshop invites contributions that report early results addressing research challenges on topics related to the network of the future. The organizers seek to identify and address issues with potential for significant impact on the design and use of the future Internet. The workshop welcomes submissions from both researchers and practitioners - fresh ideas in the form of early results, position papers, systems papers and prototyping experience are particularly welcome.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Re-design and re-evaluation of today‚Äôs architectural principles
  • End-to-end virtualization of the network
  • Programmable network equipment such as routers
  • Alternatives to established technologies such as routing
  • New optical layer networking technologies
  • Self-management of networks
  • New media-aware transport services
  • New approaches to network security and user privacy
  • Mechanisms to interconnect extremely heterogeneous edge networks
  • Technology based on new communication paradigms
  • Enabling technologies for the Internets of Things
  • Machine-to-machine networking
