The Future of the Internet


It took place from March 31 to April 2, 2008, in Bled, Slovenia, the event "The Future of The Internet: Perspectives emerging from R&D in Europe" [1]. The event was organized by Jožef Stefan Institute, a partner of the FP7 EIFFEL project [2], and and ISOC Slovenia. The event put together important players in Future Internet development and finished with the signature of the Bled Declaration [3], which in my opinion ratifies importance of Future Internet research and development as a strategic aspect for future success in Science and Technology. From Bled Declaration: "A significant change is required and the European Internet scientific and economicactors, researchers, industrialists, SMEs, users, service and content providers, nowassert the urgent necessity to redesign the Internet, taking a broad multidisciplinaryapproach, to meet Europe’s societal and commercial ambitions." More information is avalilable in [1]. Also, the video of all presentations is available for download. Enjoy!
