SAVE THE DATE! The fifth Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conference (FEC) will be organised on 24-25 April 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Fed4FIRE+ project offers the largest federation worldwide of Next Generation Internet (NGI) testbeds, which provide open, accessible and reliable facilities supporting a wide variety of different research and innovation communities and initiatives in Europe. Fed4FIRE+ testbed offer:
- Simple, efficient, and cost effective experimental processes
- Increased trustworthiness of facilities
- Sustainability of the experimental infrastructures
- Easy access to resources for SMEs, industry and academia
The Fed4FIRE+ community is at work running and continuously improving the largest federation of facilities, supporting and offering experimental testbeds based on technologies ranging from wireless, wired, cloud services and open flow, and making them accessible through common frameworks. Besides, available tools for infrastructure developers open new possibilities, supporting a broad range of experimenter communities covering a wide variety of Internet infrastructures, services and applications, allowing them to focus on their core testbed activities.
Through the federation of these infrastructures – a single place where to find and execute technical tests – innovative experiments become possible; a novelty that breaks the boundaries of these domains. The federator also builds on Fed4FIRE’s existing community of experimenters, testbeds and tool developers and bring them together regularly in Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conferences (FEC) to have maximal interaction between the different stakeholders involved.
The Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conferences are 2/3-day events (organised twice a year) with a mix of plenary and parallel sessions. The sessions consist out of talks, tutorials and technical discussions and there is also a demo night session with over 40 experiments which were set up and ran on the federated testsbeds, a large part of which also received financial support. This is a great opportunity for researchers and developers, to exchange experiences and inspire each other’s.
