The European Future Internet Assembly is a collaboration between projects that have recognized the need to strengthen European activities on the Future Internet to maintain European competitiveness in the global marketplace. Currently FIA brings together around 150 research projects that are part of Challenge 1 of the ICT programme of FP7 and are advancing the state of the art in their respective thematic areas.
FIA supports open interactions and cross-fertilization across technical domains, hence it is open to all researchers engaged in Future Internet research (be they at EU or not) to contribute and participate towards FIA’s goals. The first FIA was held in Bled, Slovenia in May 2008, and reaches its 11th edition this year, in FIA Athens 2014.
The 11th FIA in Athens will focus on reshaping the Future Internet infrastructure for innovation, and more specifically on the formulation of the new Internet technological landscape based on network/cloud integration & virtualisation SDN/NFV and innovative software, services and cloud technologies that enable application innovation.
Vincent Dollet from Appear Networks and Vladimir Bataev from EsperantoXL will be supporting MobiCloud's presence at the event demonstrating the technology and participating in some of the workshops. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the technology behind the project and see some of the resulting enterprise mobility applications.
FIA Athens 2014 features several parallel events, such as working sessions, project demonstrations, FIF, FI-PPP, session/demo/project contests etc.
