The FIND Program
FIND (Future Internet Design) is a major 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 FIND Meeting
The FIND meeting includes principal investigators from 2006 and PIs who have been notified that they are going to be recommended for funding in 2007. In addition to FIND, there are many programs and projects working toward a Future Internet. This meeting includes invited researchers in such projects who have been selected on the basis of white papers white papers explaining the scope of their research and the potential contributions to designing a Future Internet.
