EMANICS Workshop "Vision and Management of the Future Internet"

3rd - 4th July 2008, Jacobs University Bremen, Germany

The objective of the workshop on "Vision and Management of the Future Internet" that is co-located with the 2nd International Conference on Autonomous Infrastructure Management and Security (AIMS) is to present and discuss possible approaches towards the future Internet.

In that context, one position is to replace the Internet as it stands today with a 'clean slate' design. Another possible approach would be to have many parallel / federated Internets instead of a single one. Finally, a third proposal is that evolution happens on the content layer and that the core stays almost untouched as it is. Based on these three positions, an integral part of the workshop is a panel discussion among experts in that field of research in which the different points of view are emphasized and discussed. Another fundamental part of the workshop is the assignment of different working groups that will discuss the alternatives, especially the implications on management. The outline and relevant action items for joint publications will be discussed as well.
