Workshops in FIS2010 will complement the symposium by providing a forum for active discussions and exchange of ideas focused on cross-domain issues related to the Future Internet. The purpose of the workshops will be to provide an informal setting for attendees, potentially affiliated to different Internet disciplines to discuss scientific and technical issues, share experiences, and to lay the foundations for the establishment of the cross-domain research community which will shape the Future Internet research agenda.
