Last week, several members of the Distributed Applications and Networks Area (DANA) participated in this year’s Future Internet Assembly, which took place in Athens between the 17th and 20th of March. They participated in a number of workshops that tackled the most current future internet topics. At the same time, they represented i2CAT participation in several Future Internet research projects through their presence in the project booths.
One of those workshops, entitled NFV: From hype towards actual implementation and deployment, was organized jointly by some DANA members and Telefónica I+D. The primary goal of the workshop was to provide an overview of the current status of NFV, and to identify and discuss what are the next major steps to be taken towards the adoption of NFV-compliant solutions within production environments. And… the workshop obtained the Best FIA session award!
You can see in the photo our director Joan A. García-Espín receiving the award during the closing plenary session! Congratulations! Photos of the workshop and the different speakers at the end of the post!
Furthermore, a lot of interesting and innovative discussions and private meetings were held during the event, and new collaboration windows were opened! Remember to stay tuned to all the DANA updates through this blog! Or our twitter account!
