On January 27, 2012, Fabio Hecht, from the University of Zurich, a member of the SESERV project, attended the
7th GI/ITG KuVS Workshop on Future Internet, which took place at the Nokia-Siemens headquarters in Munich, Germany. UZH has submitted an extended abstract entitled “LiveShift: A Time-Shifted Video Streaming Approach”, which was accepted for presentation. Presentations targeted the general theme of Future Internet and were diverse in terms of specific areas; most had, though, a technical, rather than an economic point of view. While some presentations envisioned a clean-slate approach that grants authors more freedom to create solutions to current and future Internet issues, some participants are skeptical to whether a complete change in the current Internet is possible, taking into consideration, for example, the slow adoption of IPv6. The points at which most authors and participants agree is that the Future Internet will be increasingly distributed in terms of resources and service providers. Therefore, several presentations targeted the use of such distributed resources more efficiently, or ways to select among several protocols or service providers in an optimal way.
