Wired and The Economist have announced the inaugural NEXTWORK, a one-day, conference created to discuss the promise and peril of the network’s future.

NEXTWORK will take place at Tribeca Rooftop in New York City on June 22. The presenting sponsor is Juniper Networks Inc.

The conference will assemble leaders across a multitude of disciplines — economics, technology, academics and business — to discuss the future of the network.

Sessions will examine the “digital zeitgeist” and its impact on future collaboration, development and governance of the network.

“Network infrastructure is essential in making the world not only closer but better, helping to accelerate social and economic advancement across the globe,” Juniper said in a release.

“Each day thousands more people become connected; data traffic is doubling each year on mobile networks alone, begging the question “can the network keep up with exponentially increasing demands?”
