The fully networked human?
− Innovations for future networks and services −
ITU Kaleidoscope academic conference
Cape Town, South Africa
12-14 December 2011
Kaleidoscope 2011 The fully networked human? − Innovations for future networks and services − is the fourth in a series of peer-reviewed academic conferences organized by ITU that brings together a wide range of ideas and views from universities, industry and research institutions of different fields. The previous editions were held in Switzerland, Argentina and India. The aim of Kaleidoscope is to identify emerging developments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) at an early stage, to generate successful products and services through the development of international and open standards.
ICTs have already changed the way we live, work, learn, think and communicate. Ever smaller and smarter sensors proliferate, wireless networks are omnipresent, and smartphones are abundant. In the future, the impact of ICTs will be further amplified through the increasing deployment of ubiquitous/pervasive/human-centric computing and ambient intelligence. In this environment, the user is placed at the center, and virtualized networks, other IT resources, services and applications are adaptively and automatically configured to support the users in carrying out their everyday life activities.
Besides many technical issues to be addressed, this also raises serious questions about access to ICTs, privacy, interoperability and sustainability. Future technologies should be designed to benefit humans, not the other way round. To address these issues, standards are indispensable. Developing these standards will require concerted efforts by many stakeholders, including relevant UN agencies. This conference shall help to further such collaborations.
The fully networked human? − Innovations for future networks and services is calling for original academic papers offering innovative and bold approaches in research and development to integrate the real and the digital worlds.
Kaleidoscope 2011 is targeted at all specialists with a role in the field, including researchers, academics, students, engineers, policy-makers and regulators, innovators and futurists from all over the world.
