Internet for the Future Society

The Internet technology has matured and latest developments provide an opportunity to address the numerous critical societal challenges that our societies are facing. This workshop provides a unique forum for leading researchers and practitioners in France and Japan, to share research questions and explore potential for innovations in these areas. In the morning sessions, researchers from France and Japan introduce latest research and technical challenges. The topics include Internet of Things, machine-to-machine communications, open data access and geo-location information, new Internet architecture, content caching, and mobility. The afternoon session invites speakers from industry to share their perspectives for future technologies and examine the roles of the Internet in their views. The panel session aims at discussing technical challenges for the Internet to enable people to build future information society. The discussion will cover connecting 8 billion people on the earth, building testbeds and allowing reproducible network experiments, handling massive data, considering future devices and security and privacy implications, and other ambitious challenges.
