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 Internet.

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,
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.
