*****Call for Workshop Proposals*****

Future Internet Symposium
FIS 2008

28th-30th September | Vienna, Austria

The workshops at FIS008 will complement the main conference by  
providing a forum for active discussions and exchange of ideas focused  
on one or two cross-domain issues related to the Future Internet. The  
purpose of the workshops will be to provide an informal setting for  
attendees, potentially affiliated to different Internet disciplines to  
discuss scientific and technical issues, share experiences, and to lay  
the foundations for the establishment of the cross-domain research  
community which will shape the Future Internet research agenda. From a  
content perspective workshop proposals should comply with the agenda  
of the main conference and concentrate on topics which are likely to  
benefit from interactions and information exchange within a focused  
group of experts from different areas and communities. We expect to  
have a wide range of workshops (full-day, or half-day) covering  
fundamental research questions for the realization of the next  
generation of the Internet, bringing together researchers from  
different disciplines.
