In addition there will be three intensive workshop sessions covering interesting and controversial topics:
• Next Generation Networks – Next Revenues? Innovative ideas within Next Generation Networks will have a huge impact on our society. New applications with a dynamic deployment may support the rapid development of new services even better than before. Does this lead to new revenues as well?
• Security vs. Usability Practical evidence suggests that these are often contradictory requirements. But do the issues have to be in competition? What approaches could solve the problem?
• The Pedagogy of eLearning? The role of eLearning within teaching is continuously changing. How will a varying number of factors influence the pedagogy of eLearning? What will be the future concepts within pedagogy in this context?
Authors are invited to submit their full papers or position papers, via the conference web site, by 31st January 2010.
