Kaiserslautern, Germany, 27-29 June 2011


Following the past successful conferences, NGI 2011 focuses on the design, engineering, and operation of Next Generation Internet networks. It is organized by the Network of Excellence Euro-NF, which was initiated by the European Commission during the 7th Framework Program. Euro-NF serves as its main platform for interaction, dissemination, and collaboration. To stimulate discussions, NGI 2011 invites scientists and practitioners from industry and academia, and especially welcomes contributions from outside Euro-NF.

Original papers on recent advances in next generation networking are invited. In addition to full papers, we also encourage to present demonstrators.

Topics of interest are - but are not limited to - the following areas:

Applications and Services
o Grid computing
o Cloud computing
o Location-based and context-aware services
o Network co-operation
o Overlay networks and peer-to-peer

Optical Networks
