Over the last 12 months I have been very lucky to be able to make a top-conference tour:
CoNEXT in Madrid, Infocom in Rio, SIGCOMM in Barcelona and two Future Internet summer schools: 4Ward FISS in Bremen and Trilogy FISS in Louvain-le-Neuve. Thanks to all the organizers!!

I had the chance to meet very nice people from around the world, have great technical discussions, and of course a great time during the social events and the tourist activities. Sharing experiences with other PhD students has been very fruitful! Being able to hear in person the visions of tier-1 international researchers and getting first hand feedback of your own work …. priceless!

Now, the event season continues in Brazil. This week we are organizing our First International Workshop on New Architectures for Future Internet. The event will be streamed live and the material from the talks will be posted online. We plan to write and publish a summary report gathering the essence of the discussions and our conclusions for future Internet research activities. Next week, we will have the opportunity to report on Future Internet research at the XXVII Simpósio Brasileiro de Telecomunicações (SBrT 2009).

Joining the trend of using Web 2.0 technologies to make conferences more attractive and useful (with SIGCOMM09 being a remarkable example), we have set up the following information channels. Please feel free to join them. We will offer twitter to let remote participants participate in the Q&A sections and the discussion panels:

Live streaming of the event
– Twitter futnetcpqd channel for live conversations and remote questions to the speakers
– Linkedin: Join the Future Internet CPqD Open Research Group
– Flickr page with pictures from the workshop

Next time I will post on thoughts about the upcoming events.
