Wealth of Networks II

Help shape the Next-generation Internet!

Wealth of Networks is a one-day forum bringing researchers and industry together in conversation with the public to chart the direction of research for the Next-generation Internet in the UK. We will be discussing the recommendations from the first Wealth of Networks event which took place last July (Check out the 2008 blog for all of the details of last year’s event).

The aim of the forum is to give the general public an opportunity to shape the recommendations about the future of the Internet that will be presented to UK research funding councils in April. The event will consist of panellists from academia and industry, including Dame Prof. Wendy Hall of Southampton University, and Prof. John Domingue of the Knowledge Media Institute.

Attendance is free, but pre-registration is required, and places are limited to 200. So don’t wait to register!
