Telecommunication infrastructures play a vital role in modern society.
The advancements in the range of network service offerings, their
performance, quality of service, security, and ubiquity are
relentless, despite global economy fluctuations. The demand for high
bandwidth network infrastructures is continuously growing within both
academic and industrial sectors.

Grid computing is one of the many examples of the new emerging
paradigm of networking characterized by huge data traffic flows, that
require an extremely high-performance network infrastructure. The need
of high speed is emerging also in mobile, wireless network
environments, where new wireless technologies promise data rates above
100 Mbps. Other high bandwidth network examples include community
access networks, on demand optical networks and the Next Generation

To meet these challenges, experimental activities on infrastructures,
such as testing, verification, deployment, are pivotal for academic
researchers, developers, service managers and providers, as well as
for end users. The management of research infrastructures is
increasingly dependent on a business model that optimizes their
operational price/performance ratio. For example, access to
experimental infrastructures for real-life applications by specific
user communities would benefit all the stakeholders involved: the end
users, because of the experimental evaluation of the provided
services, the researchers and infrastructure experimenters, because of
the knowledge gained from case-study analysis, and the infrastructure
managers, because of the business exploitation of the network.

The synergies created by opening research infrastructures to real life
users offer all parties involved an enormous development potential,
which needs to be thoroughly investigated and discussed. Tridentcom is
the first event that brings together all aspects related to
experimental telecommunication infrastructures, creating a forum where
telecommunication networks researchers, vendors, providers and users
can exchange ideas on past experience, requirements, needs, visions
for the establishment of such infrastructures.

Research on all aspects of testbed and research infrastructure
operation and management will find in Tridentcom its first forum for
focused discussion. High quality papers reporting on original research
and on experiment results addressing the above areas are solicited for
submission. The main topics of the conference are:

Next Generation Internet Testbeds
Next Generation Wireless Network Testbeds
Next Generation Optical Network Testbeds
Ubiquitous Network Testbeds
Wireless Sensor Testbeds
Testbed Operation & Management for User Communities
Testbed Operation & Management for Research Communities
Testbed Cooperation & Integration
Innovative Measurements Methodologies & Tools
Traffic Measurements Testbeds
Software Tools to Support Distributed Testbeds / Virtual Laboratories
Management of Massive Databases of Experimental Data
Knowledge & Technology Transfer Procedures
Security (AAA) Testing on Open Testbeds
Social Impacts of Infrastructures
Infrastructure Real-Life Applications
Business Models for Infrastructure Budgeting & Planning
Infrastructure Renting & Pricing Policies
Vendors & Providers Partnerships

The meeting will take place at Trento, capital of the Trentino
province, heart of recent and rapidly growing R&D initiatives in
Computer Science and Telecommunications, and surrounded by some of the
most spectacular skiing resorts in the Alps. Pauses in the conference
program will allow social activities and informal interaction among
the participants.
