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 meetings include the NSF FIND program's principal investigators.
In addition to FIND, there are many programs and projects working toward
a Future Internet. The FIND meetings also include invited researchers
in such projects who have been selected on the basis of white papers explaining
the scope of their research and the potential contributions to designing
a Future Internet.
