Future Internet Symposium 2010: Towards a Converged, Consolidated and
Sustainable Future Internet

Berlin, September 20-22, 2010


The current Internet has undergone an essential transformation: it changed
from a network of networks that enables access to remote machines by a
consistent protocol suite (TCP/IP), to a network of content, applications,
and services. Thus, it became a modern commodity for everyone.

The Future Internet (FI) is destined to continue this development and to
provide improved features and usability for individuals and business. Its
applications are expected to originate from areas such as entertainment,
health, energy grid, utilities and environment, transport, mobility and
logistics. Tight economic constraints however, require the Future Internet
to consolidate and converge application-specific networks, and support for
Internet of Services (IoS), Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Content
(IoC) in a homogenous and, if possible, a single system.

A simple investigation of network performance requirements of the
anticipated FI applications reveals a set of contrary needs that have
challenged research on network architectures and protocols for decades. Only
a few applications have been successful, e.g. P2P systems, which can adapt
easily to heterogeneous environments. 
Similarly, semantic technology provided meaningful relationships of content,
but failed when it came to manageability and performance in universal and
heterogeneous network systems.

Thus Internet applications have so far been developed mainly for fitting to
specific networks. Now itís time for a change. Networks should be developed
for applications. The universe of these networks might be considered as the
Future Internet. The future network ecosystem will be supported by a
consolidated, preferably single, platform. This platform needs to include
support for services, things and content on both network and application
layer. The FI ecosystem has to be sustainable, meaning that applications are
supported efficiently, i.e. consuming a minimal amount of required
resources, e.g. capacity, electricity, etc., while providing dedicated
security and sufficient performance for the applications throughout their

Classical research on network architectures and protocols, semantic
technologies, service technologies, content and media, sensors and things is
isolated. Thus these disciplines were unable to meet all requirements.
Therefore, an interdisciplinary approach of these research areas is
suggested for a sustainable Future Internet. 

The aim of the Future Internet Symposium is to bring together scientists and
engineers from academia and industry and from various disciplines to
exchange and discuss their ideas, views and research results towards a
consolidated, converged and sustainable Future Internet.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

Future Internet Architectures and Protocols

    * Network Virtualization and future network infrastructures
    * Reliability and performance of the Future Internet
    * Mobility and Ubiquity in the Future Internet
    * Security, privacy, anonymity and trust in the Future Internet
    * Experimental facilities and experimental research for the Future
    * Multimedia technologies for the Future Internet
    * Performance metrics and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for the Future

Semantic Technologies

    * Emerging semantics in sensor networks/things and content/media in the
Future Internet
    * Sensor data processing for the Future Internet
    * Privacy, Security, Trust and Provenance models in the context of the

    * Semantic data integration and fusion of heterogeneous data coming from
legacy data sources, sensor network data streams, Web 2.0 technologies and
mobile devices for the Future Internet
    * Semantic data management for distributed data sources in mobile
environments, e.g. stream-based modeling and reasoning
    * Semantics, social communities and mobile systems for the Future

For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the
conference to present the paper.

The proceedings of FIS2010 will be published as by Springer Lecture Notes of
Computer Science (LNCS). The published papers will be indexed by IEEE Xplore
(pending request).

Submission Details

Papers have to be submitted electronically, submission details will be
provided at Papers should be written in English and should
be no more than 10 pages, font Times 11pt. Authors are required to follow
the LNCS Style. (For more information about the Springer's Lecture Notes in
