Future Internet Forum – Kilkenny Castle – 1st June

The TSSG will host, on behalf of the IFIF,  the 3rd Future Internet Forum at Kilkenny Castle on June 1st. The Future Internet is one of the key research areas for Europe and is also identified by SFI as one of their 4 core ICT research areas. This conference will support knowledge sharing between Irish policy makers, funding agencies, industrial players and academic researchers. In doing so, this Forum will address the challenges and, more importantly, the opportunities associated with the emerging Future Internet. Two of the key themes for this years conference is Identity and Privacy in a digital world. We are delighted to have a number of world expert speakers including:
