The International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA-2016) will be held at the Le Régent Congress Centre, Crans-Montana, Switzerland in March 23-25, 2016.

AINA is an International Forum, where scientists and researchers from academia and industry working in various scientific and technical areas of networking and distributed computing systems can demonstrate new ideas and solutions in distributed computing systems. Aside from the regular presentations, the conference will also include keynote speakers from both industry and academia, including Dr. Martin Brynskov attending from Aarhus University. His keynote talk will be at March 24, talking about open innovation:

"Cities across the globe are looking for ways to spur open innovation. The reason is simple. Innovation is needed to overcome the digital transition of cities and communities, and it has to be open for two reasons: First, it must be open to include a variety of stakeholders, because services are increasingly connected to other systems and co-created with stakeholders outside the old verticals, and second, it must help to establish a competitive but attractive enough market for developers, thereby driving down cost, increasing quality and avoiding vendor lock-in and monopolization. Seen from a developer’s perspective, one city is not a market. A number of countries or a continent is a sizable market. But global de facto standards for portability and interoperability are the only way to create a true global market for smart city services. In such a market, developers can start investing and specializing with an outlook of sustainable business models in public-private innovation partnerships."
