Call For Papers
The 1st International Conference on “Future Internet – Infrastructures and Enablers” (FINE2016) will be held under the EAI International Conference on Future Internet and Internet of Things Applications. FINE 2016 aims at progressing and advancing on topics of high relevance with Future Internet’s impact on technology, governance, and innovation. It focuses on the contribution and role of Future Internet on the current and emerging infrastructures which largely impact shaping of cities, communities, and governance. FINE 2016 builds on the fact that Future Internet testbeds and their flourishing Future Internet enablers have radically changed the ways of interacting, living and socializing. FINE 2016 aims at offering the ground at which scientific and technical discussion will progress among technology stakeholders, academia, governance and the society on all open and emerging issues with respect to Future Internet infrastructures and enablers which radically empower to deliver services and applications able to disrupt, transform and innovate.
FINE 2016 invites research papers presenting new results and highlighting on Future Internet concepts which touch cross-disciplinary topics and focus on challenging and provoking ideas. Its main objective is to allow an open and productive dialogue among all disciplines relevant which the Future Internet as a technical and active system which evolves driven by its infrastructural capacity and its applications enabling potential.
