The next edition of the NGI Forum will be held in 2018 on 13th September 2018 in Porto, Portugal. In line with the first edition, which was held in September 2017, the main goal for this event is to ensure the involvement of the best Internet researchers and innovators to address technological opportunities arising from cross-links and advances in various research fields ranging from network infrastructures to platforms, from application domains to social innovation.
The Next Generation Internet Forum aims to gather together prominent actors that through their work and active engagement in various R&D areas are indeed paving the way to design, build and refine the Internet of tomorrow.
The NGI Forum 2018 will provide the opportunity to share knowledge with leading experts from across a variety of disciplines, including interactive technologies, artificial intelligence, IoT, hyper-connected sociality, etc., and will include highly interactive sessions to actively engaged all participants to the event.
CHIC will be part of the workshop titled: AN INTERNET THAT EMPOWERS INDIVIDUALS AND UNLEASHES THE POWER OF DATA
The areas of intervention during the NGI Forum are initially foreseen to include issues tackled by the DSI Manifesto and to present current work and opportunities for the community and to focus on future steps, actions and policy recommendations needed to be addressed within the next 10 years within the European Next Generation Internet scene, including the DSI and CAPS communities and results. We expect from the audience to comment and to add specific fields that they would like to see in the future.
CHIC will focus to the on-going work at the alignment of the results of CAPS/DSI activities with those of NGI and not only. It will also extend to initiatives such as Social Innovation, Migration, Transformation, Governance, Employment, Digital Skills, Science for the Society, Innovation in Arts, etc.
The areas of intervention are initially foreseen to include issues tackled by the DSI Manifesto including hot and relevant issues of Openness and Transparency, Democracy and Decentralization, Experimentation and Adoption, Digital Skills and Multi-disciplinarity, Sustainability.
The discussion will focus on future steps, actions and policy recommendations needed to be addressed within the next 10 years within the European Next Generation Internet scene, including the DSI and CAPS communities and results. When building an Internet of the Future centred on humans and reflecting the European social and ethical values of freedom, openness and interoperability, CAPS or CAPS-like efforts must be put at the foundation of it.
