Events with NESSI participation

The 5thEuropean Summit on the Future Internet is taking place on the 12th and 13th June 2014 in Luxembourg and will provide a unique opportunity for discussion on the status and trends of the technologies and applications of the Future Internet.

Hosted by SnT, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security and Trust, the 5th Summit on the Future Internet offers a series of crucially important debates with the participation of key policy makers, business leaders and academics. It will be the event for discussing lessons learnt and for driving key Future Internet developments. With specific focus on the European dimension, the debates will set the scene for the forthcoming R&D landscape in the context of H2020, for the broader perspectives that need to be taken by industry to reap the benefits of the future and for a balanced and innovative regulatory and policy reform. In light of the recent developments that have taken place in the privacy and security front, the opening session of the Summit will bring together a High Level Round Table who will address the key issue which the Internet is confronted with, namely “The end of Security and Privacy”.

The overall agenda of the Summit will have sessions dedicated to Phase 3 of the European Commission’s Future Internet PPP program, with technical focus on architectural issues (software control role, security, cloud), network issues (wireless, optic, satellite, 5G), content related issues (privacy, copyright), policy (standards, monopolies, open source, data protection) and lessons from trials of smart cities. Internationally acclaimed speakers shall be invited for the plenary and panel discussion.
