Presenting MCN at the EU-Korea Workshop

Invited to the “Korea-EU Workshop: Exploring common research interests in the Future Internet”, 30 September, 1st and 2nd of October 2013

This event follows the 2012 ISTAG report having identified Korea as a relevant third country to jointly perform targeted research in the field of Future Internet. It also benefits from the fact that both Korea and the EU have started focused programmatic initiatives in the Future Internet domain. The purpose of this workshop is consequently: In the short term, to identify Korean and EU projects with similar scopes and objectives to favour “twinning” and information exchanges for the mutual benefits of the running activities; in the medium term, to identify a limited and focused set of research issues of common interests in the two regions which could form the basis of specific joint research in the various upcoming implementations of the Horizon 2020 research programme.

There is an extensive track on “Innovative Internet Architectures”, and this is a perfect place to present “Mobile Cloud Networking“.
