CFP: International Workshop on The Internet of the Future" (Eunice'09), Barcelona, Spain, September 7 - 9, 2009

15th Eunice International Workshop
"The Internet of the Future"
September 7 - 9, 2009, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

Ten years ago, the 5th edition of the Eunice workshop took place in
Barcelona with the motto "Broadband for all". This year, with the
broadband promise already fulfilled in the city, the international
workshop comes back to Barcelona in its 15th edition focused on "The
Internet of the future".

The Internet is shaping the twenty-first century information society. It
has deeply transformed the way we learn, work and interact. All kinds of
institutions, from universities to businesses, have been shaken by the
wave of digital innovation. Leisure and social networks also have their
place in the virtual world, and the younger generations cannot imagine a
time when they could not be in permanent contact with friends around the
globe, interchanging messages and multimedia content. The challenge of
classifying, ranking and interpreting the massive amounts of information
that are being generated is breathtaking. Furthermore, the Internet is
moving beyond the computer to reach the mobile phones, smart gadgets and
sensor networks. The pervasiveness of the Internet had fundamentally
changed existing business models, and the business models themselves are
driving the evolution of the Internet. In this scenario of relentless
change, our aim is to foresee and design the networks and applications
of the future.
