TIVIT and SnT (the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust of the University of Luxembourg) jointly organize a high-class international event in Espoo, Finland. It will be held on 31st of May and 1st of June 2012.
After the two very successful editions in 2009 and 2010 organized by SnT, it is a great pleasure to jointly carry out the 3rd European Summit on the Future Internet. The program as it is being conceived will represent a unique opportunity to understand the future ahead and confront your views with those of a carefully selected panel of extraordinary speakers. This 3rd European Summit on the Future Internet will provide top speakers and influencers as well as interesting and current topics according to the main theme of the whole event - towards Future Internet international collaboration.
The 3rd European Summit on the Future Internet focuses on some of the most relevant topics to boost international collaboration. What is the future of Internet and its many applications? How to combine the interests of platform developers, apps and service providers and future customers? Which of the applications, such as cloud computing, future media, and e-commerce, the customers are most willing to adapt? Which applications will generate new business opportunities? How Internet can be utilized in solving grand challenges, like environmental change, health care and aging, and transportation?
Customers are expecting next generation solutions with easy, proactive and simple interfaces. Business is expecting more financial maneuver for increasing R&D&I activities towards the customer needs. Europe, the US and Asia all have their own ICT objectives. Could future services and products be more intensively developed and tested in cooperation?
International collaboration in Internet-based solutions is still at an early stage. The high-level roundtable on EU-China Future Internet collaboration in Day Two will be one of the highlights of the 2012 Summit.
