The European Commission published recently the Horizon 2020 (H2020) research program to prepare the roadmap for research in Information Communication Technologies. The Future of Internet is on its way and contributions are needed to accommodate new usage and future expectations of society at large. The planned R&D covers a wide spectrum from communication networks and cloud computing infrastructures to Internet of things and wide application domains.

The aim of the annual EUNICE conference is to provide a forum that brings together young researchers and scientists from Europe and neighboring regions to meet and exchange ideas and recent works on all aspect of information and communication technologies. The theme for the EUNICE 2014 conference “Anticipating the future of the Internet?” has been proposed to promote fruitful exchanges between academic institutions and industry.
