The Experts Reference Group (ERF) of the FIArch group is composed of representatives of the most relevant FP7 research projects in relation to FI architectures and renowned experts from industry and academia covering in a complementary way all areas related to the Future Internet Architecture. The work of the group is coordinated by the FP7 CSA projects in the area of Future Internet: NextMedia, IOT-i, SOFI, EFFECTS+, EIFFEL, SESERV, Chorus+ and Paradiso 2, and supported by the EC Units D1: Future Networks, D2: Networked Media Systems, D3: Software & Service Architectures & Infrastructures, D4: Networked Enterprise & Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and F5: Trust and Security.

The aim of FIArch group is to focus on a few yet key architectural issues, which are shared and agreed by a considerable representation and coverage of FI stakeholders, including FP7 projects, and will contribute towards an EC research roadmap towards Future Internet Architecture.

As a first concrete step towards this goal, the FIArch group has been working on the identification and categorization of the “Fundamental Limitations of Current Internet”. In this open workshop, the FIArch group would like to present the current progress and receive a first feedback from the EC research and industry community in general.

It is worth to notice that the presentations by the group will be focused on a small set of limitations identified as fundamental. Yet, a large slot has been allocated in the workshop’s schedule for interested audience participants, who are invited to present in a qualitatively and quantitatively justified way additional limitations they consider as fundamental. For a better organization of this session, a pre-registration process will be announced in the next few days.

If you want to present 1-2 fundamental limitations in this area (max 5 minutes each), please send your ppt to the email: infso-future-internet@ec.europa.eu before 20 October 2010.
