Future Network & Mobile Summit 2010

16-18 June 2010, Florence, Italy


Future Network & MobileSummit 2010 (previously ICT-MobileSummit) is the nineteenth in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 600 delegates from industry and research to share experiences and research results, identify future trends, discuss business opportunities and identify opportunities for international research collaboration under the ICT Theme of Framework Programme 7 (FP7). It will thus contribute to showcasing European research in the field, and position it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.


Future Network & MobileSummit 2010 will address all the challenges of building the Future Internet, which will be based on mobile, wireless and fixed broadband communications infrastructures. It showcases European research in the field, and positions it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.


The Scientific Programme incorporates all the key constituents of Future Communication Networks including the themes Radio Access and Spectrum, Converged and Optical Networks, and Future Internet Technologies.


Supported by the European Commission and eMobility, the Future Network & MobileSummit's reputation is based on high quality networking, plenary sessions that discuss strategic issues in core thematic areas, and paper sessions that showcase original results in all areas of mobile, wireless and fixed broadband communications systems and networks.

While European funded research results are of particular interest, innovative research funded commercially or at national level is equally interesting from a community perspective. The participation of representatives of leading commercial, research and regulatory organizations in the Conference Community ensures a stimulating and high quality networking environment.

Future Network and MobileSummit 2010 is Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Italy Section, IEEE Italy Communications Chapter and IEEE Italy Computer Chapter.
