FIS 2012 Future Internet Symposium 2012: Towards a Smart and Sustainable Future Internet
May 21, 2012 - May 23, 2012 Vilnius, Lithuania Apr 14, 2012

Present CFP : 2012

While we cannot be sure about the concrete shape of the Future Internet (FI),
we can expect with confidence that it will continue touching more and more
aspects of our lives and our environment, and that it will provide novel
features that are often denoted as smart.

The smart applications in the FI are expected to bring people, things and
data together in innovative ways. Smart FI applications will come from
diverse areas such as entertainment, health, utilities, transport, mobility
and logistics. The FI will encompass the "Internet of Content", the "Social
Internet", the "Internet of Services", the "Internet of Things" and other
concepts that are being proposed. However, a simple analysis of the
anticipated smart applications and FI concepts reveals a set of conflicting
requirements. Hence, shaping the Future Internet to serve such diverse needs
and capabilities is a challenging task.

The aim of the 2012 Future Internet Symposium is to discuss the requirements
of novel FI application domains, the problems of the current Internet in
addressing those requirements, proposed solutions to these problems, and the
steps necessary to make the smart FI a reality. The interdisciplinary
symposium brings together scientists and engineers from academia and industry
and from various disciplines to exchange and discuss their ideas and
approaches for making the smart Future Internet happen.

This year, FIS is co-located with the 15th International Conference Business
Information Systems, BIS 2012.

- IoS, IoT, IoC personalization, mobility and context awareness
- Sensor data processing for the Future Internet

Higher-level topics

- Innovation and productivity through information and communication
technology in all business branches
- ICT applications in e-health, green-technology, mobility, transport,
e-tourism and e-government
- Intelligent solutions and services that improve the retrieval, modeling,
analysis and administration of data


All submissions will be subject to peer review by at least three members of
the Program Committee. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of
ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation. For
each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the conference
to present the paper.

FIS 2012 proceedings will be published in a volume of Springer LNBIP, as
post-proceedings after the symposium, combined with the workshop proceedings
of BIS 2012. All papers will be indexed by DBLP. Selected conference papers
will be proposed for fast-track publication in relevant journals related to
Future Internet research.
