Words from the Chair

Based on the huge success of the Berlin hosted FOKUS FUSECO Forum series in the last decade and the global relevance of the addressed topics and technologies, particularly in the booming region Asia, we are proud to announce the upcoming first FUSECO Forum Asia in June 2014 in the beautiful and spiritual island of Bali, Indonesia. The overall plot for this two day event is taken from the well received FOKUS FUSECO Forum.

An additional FUSECO Applied Research Workshop is planned to take place the day after FFA at the same location in order to allow a linkage between industry and academia in this hot field of R&D. More information on this event based on a Call for Papers and paper selection process will follow soon.

FFA will be co-organized by PT Telkom Indonesia, the biggest operator of Indonesia. Indonesia is the 4th largest country of the world, with a population of 237.6 million inhabitants, and a broad range of telecommunication challenges to be mastered, providing basic and advanced telecommunication services in quite different regions, ranging from multi million megacities to 17,508s of rural islands.

Bali is one of the hotspots for prototyping innovative Smart City applications and infrastructures and thus the ideal spot for this event. It is easy to reach from most Asian Countries and even from many capital cities from the rest of the world.

Call for Sponsors: This event is mainly featuring standardization and operator talks. vendors are welcome to sponsor and exhibit their products and solutions in appropriate booths.

Please contact: narayana@fraunhofer.or.id or dank@telkom.co.id

Call for Presenters: We are looking for technical presentations related to the different track themes of this event. We are not interested in vendor sales presentations ( vendors can sponsor and showcase!), but mainly in operators experiences, trials, strategies, and questions.

Proposals for (15-20 minutes) talks, and/or panelists are welcome!

Proposals should be sent to: thomas.magedanz@fokus.fraunhofer.de or joddy@telkom.co.id
