Call For Papers

Future Internet Symposium 2012: Towards a Smart and Sustainable Future Internet

May 21-23, Vilnius, Lithuania
Held together with the 15th International Conference Business Information Systems, BIS 2012.

Symposium Description:

While we cannot be sure about the concrete shape of the Future Internet (FI), 
we can expect with confidence that it will continue touching more and more 
aspects of our lives and our environment, and that it will provide novel 
features that are often denoted as smart. 

The smart applications in the FI are expected to bring people, things and 
data together in innovative ways. Smart FI applications will come from 
diverse areas such as entertainment, health, utilities, transport, mobility 
and logistics. The FI will encompass the "Internet of Content", the "Social 
Internet", the "Internet of Services", the "Internet of Things" and other 
concepts that are being proposed. However, a simple analysis of the 
anticipated smart applications and FI concepts reveals a set of conflicting 
requirements. Hence, shaping the Future Internet to serve such diverse needs 
and capabilities is a challenging task. 

The aim of the 2012 Future Internet Symposium is to discuss the requirements 
of novel FI application domains, the problems of the current Internet in 
addressing those requirements, proposed solutions to these problems, and the 
steps necessary to make the smart FI a reality. The interdisciplinary 
symposium brings together scientists and engineers from academia and industry 
and from various disciplines to exchange and discuss their ideas and 
approaches for making the smart Future Internet happen.

All submissions will be subject to peer review by at least three members of 
the Program Committee. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of 
ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation. For 
each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the conference 
to present the paper. 

FIS 2012 proceedings will be published in a volume of Springer LNBIP, as 
post-proceedings after the symposium, combined with the workshop proceedings 
of BIS 2012. All papers will be indexed by DBLP. Selected conference papers 
will be proposed for fast-track publication in relevant journals related to 
Future Internet research.
