The 2nd GAIA workshop will be in Cambridge (Oct 20, 21) at the Cambridge Computer Lab. The workshop will be focussed on bringing together the European research community to discuss a 3-5 research agenda on Universal Service Provisioning. We will be discussing the different challenges as well as the different projects/deployments in this space.
The 2nd GAIA workshop is generously supported by the Internet Society (ISOC).
Final attendees list is here: http://doodle.com/kq4nxewwsytwvva6 . Travel and local stay info is available here. More directions to the lab can be found here. We have limited visitor parking. There are several free parking spaces on the Clerk Maxwell Road as well as the Madingley Park and Ride.
