6th International ICST Conference on Testbeds and Research Infrastructures for the Development of Networks & Communities
18-20 May 2010, Berlin, Germany*

The convergence and evolution of networks and services in Information
and Communications Technologies is continuing to drive the need for
flexible testing and experimentation environments that respond to a
large and diverse set of requirements. The corresponding testbeds range
from small dedicated and well-controlled environments up to large scale
environments that should exhibit properties anticipated by the future
network. The value generation has shifted from the network towards the
applications and the networked society is calling for the service
environments that will deliver the complex and valued services to the
customer, yet a reliable service delivery depends on a reliable network.
Open testbeds are becoming state of the art, allowing both wide access
as a shared resource and extensibility to include on-demand new end
systems, network technologies, protocol stacks, and, most importantly,
new middleware and service delivery platforms for specific test
purposes. Major research and development programs around the globe have
started to develop and deploy large scale experimental facilities,
including GENI in the U.S., FIRE in Europe, AKARI, CNGI, and others in
Asia. Due to the escalating complexity, attention is increasingly being
devoted to cross layer testbeds that can support experiments spanning
the network, service delivery and application layers. These Testbeds and
Experimental Facilities for the Future Internet will play a pivotal role
towards the future network, thus TridentCom 2010 will devote significant
attention to them. TridentCom 2010 will provide a forum to explore
existing and planned testbed concepts, infrastructures and tools to
address the research and business challenges in a world of global


Prospective authors from academia, industry and government are invited
to submit high quality papers in two categories, Full Papers and Testbed
Practices Papers, as well as demonstration proposals reporting on all
aspects of testbed and research infrastructure operation and management,
including, but not limited to:

    * Testbeds and experimental facilities for the Future Internet
    * Federation of testbeds on a layer and cross layer basis
    * Large scale testbed federations
    * Governance in testbeds and testbed federations
    * Future Internet and clean slate protocol stack testbeds
    * Virtualized network and network federation testbeds
    * GRID, P2P and overlay testbeds
    * Autonomic communications and self-managing network testbeds
    * Future wireless network testbeds
    * Future optical network testbeds
    * Ubiquitous network and seamless services testbeds
    * End system and sensor testbeds
    * Smart home and converged communication and media services testbeds
    * SOA/Web 2.0 services testbeds
    * Next generation services testbeds
    * Service creation and provisioning testbeds
    * Next generation networks, IMS and quad play testbeds
    * Configurable hardware/software platforms for testbeds
    * Testbed tools for interoperability, benchmarking and traffic
    * Innovative measurement methodologies and tools for networks and
    * Industrial informatics
    * Wireless industrial communications

The conference proceedings will be published in the series of the
Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics
and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) by Springer.


Selected papers will be considered for publication in ACM/Springer
Mobile Networks and Applications Journal (MONET) and a special for
International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems
(IJCNDS). Authors are invited to submit Full Papers of up to 16 pages
and Testbed Practices Papers of up to 10 pages, including references,
figures and tables, formatted according to the Authors Instructions for
contributions to LNICST proceedings. Proposals for tutorials are also
welcome. Detailed submission and format instructions are available at

TridentCom 2010 is soliciting proposals for tutorials of either a
half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks) to be
held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are an effective way
to educate and provide the necessary background to the intended audience
enabling them to understand technical advances in the field. For
example, tutorials may cover a topic in depth, introduce an emerging
application area for testbed technologies, or update the community on
recent advances in related fields.
Proposals must be submitted by 15 January 2010 via e-mail to
tridentcom2010@eurescom.eu <mailto:tridentcom2010@eurescom.eu>
