What will the network of the future look like? What can we expect from it, what are the implications of the Future Internet on our economic development and societal progress? Why should you be interested?
Understanding the implications of this emerging connected society is critical for Ireland's academic and industrial success. The TSSG would like to invite you to a National Irish Future Internet event to be held on the 29th October 2008 in the Digital Exchange, Digital Hub in Dublin 8. The purpose of the event is to create a forum for discussing the challenges and opportunities for ICT in Ireland relating to the research and development of the Future Internet, both in terms of managing the network infrastructure, and in terms of enabling flexible service creation and deployment
The event will feature a number of keynote presentations from internationally renowned speakers, including a talk from Rainer Zimmermann, Head of Unit "Future Networks", European Commission, DG Information Society and Media (DG-INFSO).
Thus, the context is the EU funded research initiatives designed to progress the agenda of the Future Internet, both in the "Future Networks" unit of DG-INFSO, and in related research and development activities. These are currently gathered under the umbrella of the European portal site.
The event starts at 1.30pm and will end with a cocktail / networking session at approximately 6pm.
