>Subject: Second NeTS FIND Informational Meeting
>The NSF NeTS program will be holding a second one-day informational
>meeting for the FIND (Future Internet Design) programmatic area on
>December 7, 2006 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in room 375 at NSF. Only
>informal registration is required prior to the meeting; please send an
>email to either of the FIND Program Directors (contact information
>below) to make sure you have a badge to attend the meeting. We hope
>that you can make this meeting if you are interested in submitting a
>proposal to the FIND programmatic area of NeTS and did not make the
>November 7, 2006 meeting. Please note that if you cannot make this
>meeting the webcast from the November 7th meeting will soon be available
>on the CRA website www.cra.org.
>FIND (Future Internet Design) is a major new long-term initiative of the
>NSF NeTS research program. FIND invites the research community to
>consider what the requirements should be for a global network of 15
>years from now, and how we could build such a network if we are not
>constrained by the current Internet-if we could design it from scratch.
>FIND solicits research across the broad area of network architecture,
>principles, and mechanism design, aimed at answering these questions.
>The philosophy of the program is to help conceive the future by
>momentarily letting go of the present - freeing our collective minds
>from the constraints of the current state of networking.
>The intellectual scope of the FIND program is wide. FIND research might
>address questions such as:
>* How can we design a network that is fundamentally more secure and
>available than today's Internet?
> How would we conceive the security problem if we could start from
>* How might such functions as information dissemination, location
>management or identity management
> best fit into a new network architecture?
>* What will be the long-term impact of new technologies such as advanced
>wireless and optics?
>* How will economics and technology interact to shape the overall design
>of a future network?
>* How do we design a network that preserves a free and open society?
>The first set of FIND awards has now been made. This meeting will
>discuss these awards as examples of architectural ideas, provide
>guidance for potential proposers about the program's goals, structure,
>and review process, and offer community discussion and feedback about
>this exciting new initiative in networking research.
>The goals, structure, and emphasis of the FIND initiative differ
>somewhat from other NETS programs. For this reason, researchers
>interested in these topics are particularly encouraged to attend this
>Location: National Science Foundation, 4201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington
>Time and Meeting Room: 9 AM-3 PM, Room 375
>Program Directors: Darleen Fisher dlfisher at nsf.gov

>The agenda will include presentations by NSF and by currently funded PIs
>as well as ample time for questions and answers.
