33rd European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication September 16 - 20, 2007 - International Congress Center (ICC), Berlin, Germany

1st Workshop on Future Internet Design (FID)

September 16th, 2007, 9:00 - 13:00
collocated with ECOC 2007

Workshop Objectives

This workshop brings together researchers in the area of future Internet design, also referred to as "Clean Slate Design", and researchers in the area of optical communications, to raise mutual awareness, explore areas of joint interest, and stimulate discussion on the directions of future network research. The progress in the different fields of optical communications will continue to be a key driver for the architectural changes in any future network design. Both communities will need to closely cooperate to make the future Internet happen. The success story of optics - any chance to be continued in the 21st century?



The program of the workshop consists of invited talks that are intended to stimulate discussions and opinions regarding future Internet issues.
