The well known FP7 'Future Networks Concertation Meeting' has a new 'look and feel' in Horizon 2020 and is being renamed 'Net-Tech Future Coordination Meeting'. These regular meetings will bring together EU research-funded projects in the area of communications networks to exchange the latest research findings and ideas for future activities. The next occasions for Net-Tech projects to meet and coordinate their activities are the Net Futures 2015 in Brussels & EuCNC2015 in Paris.



The Net-Tech Future Coordination Meeting is based on plenary & working groups, which focus on:

  1. Future Internet (FI)
  2. Converged and Optical Networks (CaON)
  3. Radio Access and Spectrum (RAS), and
  4. The Internet of Things European Research Cluster (IERC).

Next meetings

The next occasion for Net-Tech projects to meet and coordinate their activities are taking place at the following conferences:

After 11 successful editions, the Future Internet Assembly gave way to the rebranded Net Futures formula organised as a single event bringing together all of Net Futures' interest groups and consultation meetings. The main event – a two-day congress – features plenaries with high-level speakers and cross-cutting sessions in different formats, such as the ‘un-conference’ and ‘hackathon’. Alongside the congress, there will be a selection of Net Futures Showcases taking place.

The European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC2015) is the key yearly event for showcasing EU funded research and innovation, as well as for presenting the latest developments in this area.

The conference will include:

  • regular sessions with papers from the open call (to be submitted to IEEE Xplore)
  • workshops
  • special sessions
  • poster sessions
  • panels
  • keynote talks
  • demos and exhibitions.

 The EuCNC2015 Call for Papers, posters, workshops and special sessions by 6 February 2015.
