FIS2008: 2nd Call for Tutorials

*****Call for Tutorial Proposals*****

Future Internet Symposium
FIS 2008

28th-30th September | Vienna, Austria


The Future Internet Symposium will be highly interdisciplinary, open to all
scientific areas, with an emphasis on the technologies driving the
development of Web 3.0: semantics and services. 
Research should address the key challenges facing the Internet:
. Scalability in the face of peer-to-peer traffic, decentralisation, and
increased openness
. Trust when government, medical, financial, personal data are increasingly
trusted to the cloud, and middleware will increasingly use dynamic service
. Interoperability of semantic data and metadata, and of services which will
be  dynamically orchestrated
. Pervasive usability for users of mobile devices, different languages,
cultures and physical abilities
. Mobility for users who expect a seamless experience across spaces,
devices, and velocities. 

An additional and equally important role for the Future Internet Symposium
is to be a home for the Future Internet community. In this respect the
Symposium will serve the interest of the emerging community and foster new
researchers (PhD students and fresh Post-docs) as they progress to become
the new leaders in this emerging field.
