Internet, Interdisciplinarity & Innovation

THE 1st INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTERNET SCIENCE
Brussels, April 10-11, 2013
�e Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts (KVAB)
www.internet-science.eu/1st-eins-conference �e 1st international conference on Internet Science, will be organized from April 10 to 11 in Brussels, under the aegis of the European Commission, by the EINS project, the FP7 European Network of Excellence in Internet Science (http://www.internet-science.eu), with the support of KVAB. �is highly multidisciplinary conference combines Computer Science, Sociology, Art, Mathematics, Physics, Complex systems analysis, Psychology, Economics, Law, Political Science, Epistemology and other relevant disciplines. It will be a unique venue fostering dialogue among scholars and practitioners belonging to these disciplines. It will also provide the EINS Network of Excellence with an opportunity to interact with external stakeholders, detail project objectives and methodological approach, and showcase its first results. �e event will start on April 9 at 18:30 with a welcome reception, and will end on April 11 in the early a�ernoon. A Call for Papers (CfP) has been launched, inviting papers shedding light on Internet Science from all involved disciplines and in particular papers crossing rigid disciplines boundaries, describing original research and innovative ideas. �e conference is open to any organizations and individuals interested in the event topic. Only limited registration fees are requested to attend it in order that they are not an obstacle to registration, thanks to the financial support of the European Commission, made available through the EINS FP7 project. �ese fees cover in particular access to the venue, to the welcome cocktail of April 9, all coffee-breaks and lunches of April 10 and 11, and the dinner of April 10.

Review, publication and presentation
Each submission will be refereed by at least 3 TPC members, to cover both the research background of each submission as well as the necessary interdisciplinary aspects. Review criteria for all types of submissions include significance, originality, presentation, validity, and the ability to stimulate discussion, with different emphases depending on the submission category to allow for consideration of all relevant works contributing to the advancement of Internet Science. All accepted papers and extended abstracts will appear in the Conference Proceedings in the same length and format the submission. Regardless of the submission format, accepted submissions will be presented in one of three formats: 1) as a 20-minute presentation followed by discussion, 2) during one of the poster presentations and discussion sessions, 3) or as part of a panel discussion. Research papers and extended abstracts are eligible for presentation in any of the three formats, depending on reviewer recommendations. Submissions that are thought-provoking and novel will be more appropriate for longer presentation, while those that are expected to stimulate discussion will be ideal for presentation in smaller groups or as posters.

About the EINS Network of Excellence
�e EINS Network of Excellence in Internet Science is supported by the European Commission under its FP7 research-funding programme (ICT �eme). It aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of Internet networks and their co-evolution with society, by addressing the fragmentation of European research in this area, at geographical and disciplinary levels. Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines exploring Internet systems from any technological or humanistic perspective, and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in Internet functionality. �e network brings together thirty-eight research institutions across Europe that are focusing on network engineering, computation, complexity, networking, security, mathematics, physics, sociology, game theory, economics, political sciences, humanities, and law, as well as other relevant social and life sciences. It is coordinated by Prof. Leandros Tassiulas from CERTH, Greece. �e network�s main deliverable will be a durable shaping and structuring of the way Internet research is carried out, by reaching a critical mass of expertise needed to provide European leadership in this area, providing concrete incentives for multidisciplinary collaborations, and spreading excellence beyond the partnership.
