  • The core debate was during the Expert Panel on Internet
  • Discussion turned around “new Internet”, as a next phase of the NGN. The panelist touched architectural, business models, and technical aspects that might be considered
  • A top 7 item list was suggested as the most critical priorities; security, identity management, etc.


  • There were discussions on updating the topics of INTERNET and augmenting the dissemination of INTERNET to cover new dimensions on virtualization and cloud computing, etc.
  • Help is expected from all the committee members for a careful dissemination of the Call for Papers, avoiding spamming
  • The promotion of young researchers was appreciated
  • More work for preparing INTERNET 2010 will be done offline, with many volunteers
  • There is an open call to suggest regular refresh to the topics of INTERNET events
  • Please have a look at: INTERNET 2010
    Suggestions are welcome at
  • The procedure of invitation-only for extended versions of selected papers among those presented for on-line IARIA journals, with no additional fees, was appreciated

Some of the following items were also discussed either individually, or off-line, in small groups.


  • Continue with ‘Poster’ and ‘Work in Progress’ tracks
  • Definitively, the technical program committee must be tuned to reflect new topics and assure a fair peer-to-peer review process


  • The option to publish in an open digital library was discussed; this will allow having all the proceedings of the co-located events on the same CD Proceedings, and full free access to any publication
  • This issue will be carried further on to the IARIA Board to careful attention
  • It was suggested that some national research Centers encourage scientist to rather publish in openly searchable digital libraries
  • Conclusion was that, while a parallel back-up solution for both publishing and archiving is recommended, more work must be done for enlarging the indexing

Next steps:

  • Develop the new topics via off-line exchanges
  • Extend invitations for INTERNET 2010 committee membership


  • Announce the new topics with the CfP for INTERNET 2010
  • Location: yet to be defined, most probably in Valencia (Spain)
  • INTERNET 2010 will be organized under InfoWare 2010, most probably in September 2010

Summary of the Expert Panel

Dr. Eugen Borcoci, Professor, University “Politehnica” Bucharest, Romania

Expert panelists:

  • Dr. Alessandro Bogliolo, Professor, Università di Urbino, Italy
  • Dr. Gyu Myoung Lee, Professor, Institut TELECOM SudParis, France
  • Dr. William W. Wu, IEEE Fellow / ATMco Founder, USA
  • Dr. Vladimir Zaborovski, Professor, Technical University/Robotics Institute - Saint-Petersburg, Russia


  • Eugen Borcoci, Future Internet: Challenges, Perspectives, and Beyond - Introduction
  • Alessandro Bogliolo, Economic Sustainability of Internet Access Networks
  • Gyu Myoung Lee, Concept, Key Characteristics and Requirements of Future Networks in ITU-T perspectives
  • William W. Wu: QoE/QoS Improvement in Wireless Internet
  • Vladimir Zaborovski : Internet: Stochastic + Dynamic = Chaos Network Environment

The panelists and audience discussed different aspects and agreed that many open issues exist and future research is necessary on Future Internet:

  • clean slate versus evolutionary approach- pros/cons
  • new business models are needed
  • network neutrality -pros/cons
  • security

Advanced Future Internet services- what service do the users really need?

  • advanced service and resource management
  • heterogeneous networking technology integration aspects
  • fixed mobile-integration
  • balance bteween thoretical new architectures and validation by expermentation on large scale int’l testbed
