        Call for chapters for the 2011 Future Internet Assembly book
   
          “Future Internet: Achievements and Promising Technology”
   
   	   To be published by Springer Verlag 15th May 2011
   
       http://services.future-internet.eu/index.php?title=FIA_Book_3
   
   Overview
   ========
   
   The Future Internet Assembly (FIA) is a success.  FIA is a unique
   bi-annual event that brings together the participants of over 100
   projects from a number of units in the EU Framework 7 Challenge 1 to
   share scientific and technical results and to discuss cross-domain
   research topics around the notion of creating a new global
   communications infrastructure, which is fit for Europe and the World.
   
   FIA began in the Spring of 2008 in Bled, Slovenia, and Spring 2011
   will see the seventh FIA in Budapest.  As with prior Spring FIAs, we
   are producing a book that aggregates both the results achieved so far
   within FIA, and the possibilities of what we can expect in the short
   term.  In this sense the scope of the text is broad rather than
   focusing on single technical or socio-economic topics.
   
   The previous FIA books are:
   
   * Towards the Future Internet: A European Research Perspective (2009)
     http://www.booksonline.iospress.nl/Content/View.aspx?piid=12006
   
   * Towards the Future Internet: Emerging Trends from European Research (2010)
     http://www.booksonline.iospress.nl/Content/View.aspx?piid=16465
   
   Early on in the FIA time line we realised that a number of key
   elements were required to ensure success:
   
   * Cross-unit and cross-domain discussions: on both core technical
     issues (such as architecture, supporting experimentation at scale)
     and on softer issues such as socio-economics, trust and identity.
   
   * Mediated engagement: between FIA and the 100 plus individual
     projects. In this respect is imperative that the FIA activities and
     processes are transparent and open and that clear explanation and
     direction is provided.
   
   * Users: over the last few FIAs representatives from a variety of user
     communities including transport, energy, health and municipal
     services have joined the meetings facilitating the incorporation of
     a broad range of stakeholder views within Future Internet solutions.
   
   In structuring the book, we suggest to mirror these elements,
   resulting in a tripartite book:
   
   * Future Internet Foundations: covers the core cross-domain technical
     and ‘soft’ topics. The chapters under this section are:
     Architectural Issues; Socio-Economic Issues; Trust and Identity;
     Search and Discovery; and Experiments and experimental design.
   
   * Future Internet Areas: the principle technical domains associated
     with the Future Internet, which are aligned with the units
     associated with Challenge 1. The chapters under this section are:
     Networks; Services; Internet of Things; Content; and Inter-area
     Issues.
   
   * Future Internet Application Areas: key target areas with associated
     user communities, which will be revolutionised by the Future
     Internet. The chapters under this section are: Smart Cities; Smart
     Living; Smart Energy; Smart Health; Smart Enterprises; Smart
     Transportation; Smart Manufacturing; and Utilities environment;
   
   Submission
   ==========
   
   Submission and acceptance of chapters will be done in two phases: in
   the first phase we seek chapter proposals in the form of abstracts.
   Authors of accepted proposals will then be invited to submitted
   full-length chapters which will be subject to further acceptance,
   review, and revision.
   
   Phase 1: Multiple papers for each chapter is envisaged. We invite
   one-two pages abstracts by 2010-10-22 as proposals for full-length
   chapters.  Each proposal should target one of the chapter descriptions
   at http://services.future-internet.eu/index.php/FIA_Book_3. Proposals
   should not be project-specific, but reflect a broad view of the
   subject. Authors should indicate their FIA and Challenge 1 Track
   record. The abstracts will be reviewed by the book reviewers and
   editors.
   
   Phase 2: Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to develop full
   chapters of 12 pages by 2010-12-03. In light of the actual submissions
   made, the editors may consider combining proposals and asking the
   authors to collaborate on single chapters.  The full chapters will
   again be reviewed by the editors and reviewers, and subject to
   acceptance and revision.
   
   Abstracts should be submitted at
   http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fiabook2011
