*SCOPE*
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
convergence.

*PUBLICATION*
The conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes of the
Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and
Telecommunications Engineering
<http://www.springer.com/computer?SGWID=0-146-6-564009-0> (LNICST)
series by Springer.

***

*SUBMISSION*
Selected papers will be considered for publication in the 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 formatting instructions are available
at http://tridentcom.org/submission.shtml

*
CALL FOR TUTORIALS*
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>

*CO-LOCATED WORKSHOPS*
Two workshops are co-located with TRIDENTCOM 2010:

*ONIT 2010 <http://www.onit-ws.org/>**: 2nd Open NGN and IMS Testbeds
Workshop*
This workshop will give insights into the state of the art concerning
open NGN/NGMN and IMS testbeds on an international scale. The objective
is to evaluate and share the experience on the quality and impact of
such testbeds in order to improve current offerings and position them
for future challenges.The workshop will feature invited keynotes
presenting international NGN/NGMN and IMS testbed initiatives.
Scientific papers will concentrate on academic and operational aspects
of testbeds of NGN and IMS as well as deployment, access, management,
and governance issues.
The paper submission deadline is *1 December 2009*. For further
information, please visit http://www.onit-ws.org/

*WEDEEV 2010 <http://www.weedev.org/>: 3rd Workshop on Experimental
Evaluation and Deployment Experiences on Vehicular Networks*
This workshop aims to present and discuss the recent advances in the
development of vehicular networks with a specific focus on their
experimental evaluation. This workshop intends to bring together
researchers from academia and industry to present new experimental
results, describe work in progress, and explore relationships among
their diverse approaches.
The paper submission deadline is *31 December 2009*. For further
information, please visit http://www.weedev.org/
