Brainstorming on new communication paradigms for 2020

Funded under: FP6-IST


A brainstorming workshop was held in Brussels on 23 July 2003 to discuss novel communication paradigms for 2020 and to identify related long-term research subjects which could be supported by a future FET proactive initiative. Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is the IST programme nursery of novel and emerging scientific ideas.

The workshop was organised as follows: in the first part a number of experts provided short individual presentations (available separately), followed by an open brainstorming session aimed at identifying current trends, emerging communication paradigms and potential areas of related long-term research. The discussion identified several trends considered of crucial importance for future developments in communications, which are summarised in Section 1. Also, several promising research areas were discussed during the meeting, which are described in Sections 2 and 3 of this document, dealing respectively with long-term research issues and related socio-economic research.
