New paradigms in service architectures, the ubiquity of the IT, rapid progress of networking technologies and unbound user creativity constantly change the communications landscape in the current Internet. The Internet has evolved from a test platform over a commodity to a world-wide communications infrastructure, critical for many citizens, enterprises and states. The requirements on and risks to this infrastructure reflect the changed societal, technological and usage profiles and open the question if the current Internet can keep on evolving to cope with future needs or if revolutionary steps will be soon necessary.

This workshop targets the whole EuroNF audience interested in sharing thoughts, problems, approaches and ideas around the Future Internet Architecture. More specifically, we are thrilled by the anticipation of the future challenges, projecting specific requirements on the Future Internet. Why would the Future Internet be very different from today's Internet? What are main drivers, promoters and opponents of different possible approaches including the evolution of the current Internet? How will future services look like? What is the expected usage? What are the resulting requirements on the world-wide infrastructure? Which proposals do we have to resolve these and how do they compare? Which are involved players, parties, enterprises and states and what are their interests and positions? Which is the resulting trust architecture for users? Whom will we trust in the Future Internet? What needs to be done to assure security and reliability of this infrastructure? Which are the threat and attack models specific for the Future Internet and unknown in the current Internet? Will we see threat evolution or inherently new threats and attack scenarios? How can we think of countering these? Finally, we are interested in soundly defined problem statements regarding the Future of the Internet and in new visions, including e.g. a timeline, new trends, new approaches, etc.
