2nd GI/ITG KuVS Workshop on The Future Internet


The topic "Future Internet" is widely attracting attention. Triggered by FIND/ GENI activities of the NSF now both the EU in the 7th Framework as well as the BMBF in its IT strategy for 2020 have addressed this topic. Still, discussions mainly take place in the research environment and have to get carried into the industry. The workshop topic covers a wide area and ranges from the incremental improvement of today's Internet to a complete fresh start (clean slate approach).

Aim of 2nd GI/ITG Kommunikation und Verteilte Systeme (KuVS) Workshop on Future Internet is to give scientists the opportunity to present their work and ideas in this area and strengthen cooperation.

  • Clean slate architectures
  • Scalable routing
  • Content-based routing
  • Routing mediation (pub/sub)
  • Separating of identity and address (locator/ID split)
  • Cross-layer design, cross-layer optimization
  • Predictable QoS and real QoS differentiation
  • Next generation transport, e.g., carrier grade ethernet
  • Energy efficiency (green ICT)
  • Network management and control plane

The workshop will take place at Schloss Karlsruhe and is organized by the Institute of Telematics, Universität Karlsruhe (TH).
