 The content of the research roadmap has been contributed from the FIAResearch Roadmap Working group and by members of the FIA community, editedby Markus Fiedler [Blekinge Institute of Technology], Anastasius Gavras[EURECOM], Nick Papanikolaou [HP Labs], Hans Schaffers [ESoCE-Net], and NickWainwright [HP Labs]. We are soliciting additional contributions and comments on the content ofthe roadmap, with the aim of describing a clear vision and understanding oftechnology changes, challenges and solutions for the Future Internet. Theroadmap is expected to help policymakers shape research and fundingpriorities for Future Internet research. 
In particular, we invite short papers reviewing the content of the roadmap(Notes or Commentaries, maximum 2 pages) and short papers identifyingresearch topics that are missing from the roadmap, which members of thecommunity feel are important (Problem Area Papers, maximum 3 papersincluding references).
