----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NGI 2009 conference is the continuation of the series of successful
events held in Rome, Valencia, Trondheim and Krakow. It has provided
an international forum for the presentation of high quality, peer-
reviewed papers covering various aspects of future networking,
including the future Internet architecture and quality of service. It
is organized by the Network of Excellence (NoE) Euro-NF (former Euro-
NGI) that was initiated by the European Commission during the 7th
framework program. The conference is a key event contributing to reach
the EU targets of integrating the European research effort in the Next
Generation Internet domain and to strengthen the collaboration with
non-European researchers and institutions. To stimulate discussions,
NGI 2009 invites scientists and practitioners from industry and
academia, and especially welcomes contributions from outside Euro-NF.
Original papers on recent advances in next generation networking are
invited. Topics of interest are - but are not limited to - the
following areas:
Applications and Services

- Applications for wireless sensor networks

- Grid computing

- Location-based and context-aware services

- Network co-operation
