When considering the likely or desirable evolution of the Internet in the next 10 years or more, a number of questions come to mind, which must be addressed by the research community and the Internet stakeholders. These questions are vastly dominated by the technological, economical, social, regulatory and governance influences and impediments that may be expected. Beyond the issues of the architecture or the protocols, the role of wireless communications, the emergence of the Internet of Things, and the totally new domains (smart grids, smart transport etc) and application areas to be Internet enabled, there are as well fundamental concerns that need to be addressed be it in terms of security, trust, reliability, privacy or censorship. This session will provide two different perspectives regarding the likely evolution of the Internet and set the pace for the remainder of the Future Internet Summit.

An increasing number of large scale initiatives been launched throughout Europe, have chosen to relate to the notion of Smart Cities. While still in their infancy, smart cities focus their axes of action on the intelligent use of Internet enabled infrastructures as the vehicle for delivery and exchange of modern, socially relevant, economical and sustainable services in domains as varied as energy efficiency, transport, environment, etc. A central characteristic of a smart city is that of participatory governance where citizens, entrepreneurs and enterprises as the social fabric of a city, through their creativity and active participation, contribute to the innovation processes sustaining social and economic development.
