Technological innovation is becoming the key to the development of our society, involving cities, communities, economics and institutions. Internet is increasingly shaping the real world and huge efforts are required to keep pace with the effects of the technological progress on citizens’ needs, business rules and urban infrastructures.
Internet is undoubtedly changing the way we all live, but a lot of the truly transformative potential that lies in Future Internet remains untapped. To explore those limitless possibilities is the main goal of AFI 360°, the International Summit on Applications for Future Internet, which will be held on May 25-28, 2016 in Puebla, Mexico.
The event will be an opportunity to strengthen the Mexican-European cooperation in the ICT research. It will bring together academia, industry, and governments to plan, learn, network, collaborate, strategize, and more effectively examine the immense potential of the Future Internet.
Furthermore, the program of the Summit will be enriched with a series of co-located conferences, which are now accepting papers submissions. Additionally, a special Issue will be organized in ACM-SPRINGER Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) Journal.
Some important personalities in the sector of new technologies have already been announced as the participants in the joint events: Nadia Berthouze from UCL London, Javier Araujo Campos from T-System Iberia, Latif Ladid from the University of Luxembourg, and Schahram Dustdar from TU Wien.
