The event was organised into three sessions with several speakers in each: Next Generation Network and Service Technologies; Technology Enhanced Collaboration; and NGNs: Challenges and Opportunities. During lunch time a demo session was held to showcase some of the research projects being undertaken in the Information Science department. The afternoon concluded with two parallel sessions, where the participants discussed issues relating to (1) Services and Architectures and (2) Technology Enhanced Collaboration.
Presentations from the symposium are now available online via the links below.
A report is also available from the School of Business ePrints Repository that includes all presentation abstracts and summaries of the discussion sessions.
