Building International Cooperation for Trustworthy ICT

Future Internet Assembly (FIA) Dublin, 8-10th May, 2013

The next Future Internet Assembly (FIA) Conference will be held in Dublin, Ireland on  8-10th May, 2013.

Background to FIA

The Future Internet Assembly (FIA) is a research community driven initiative supported by more than 150 research projects that have recognised the need to strengthen European activities on the Future Internet to maintain European competitiveness in the global marketplace.

The community has established a successful and unique conference that brings together experts from several distinct, but interrelated areas in the EU Framework Programme 7. Importantly, the participants share scientific and technical results and discuss cross-domain research topics around the notion of creating new Future Internet technologies, applications, and services with a global perspective.

Who should attend FIA Dublin 2013?

The 10th Future Internet Assembly provides a unique insight into the technology areas that will be prioritised in the Horizon 2020 IST (Information Society Technologies) project.

The FIA Conference programme showcases the state of the art of European research in areas such as Internet of Things, Green ICT, Mobile games in the cloud, Next Generation Networks, Internet Security including insights in to the scientific and technological challenges, which need to be addressed in the Horizon 2020 programme; providing an invaluable insight for anyone considering participating in that programme.

In particular, FIA 2013 is an ideal opportunity to engage with potential project partners. With this in mind, we have structured the conference to optimise opportunities for engagement and dialogue among participants. Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with the commission framework staff and leading industry and academic players in the European Framework Programme throughout the formal workshops or during the social events and coffee breaks.

A further highlight of FIA Dublin 2013 proceedings will see the hosting of a Future Internet Public Private Partnership information day, on May 10th to launch the next phase of the research programme.
