The third Fed4FIRE+ Engineering Conference (FEC) will be organised on 14-16 March 2018 in Paris, France.
One of the objectives of the Fed4FIRE+ project is to lower the threshold and remove any roadblock towards access for SME’s, industry, research groups,… in using the wealth of advanced Next Generation Internet (NGI) testbeds.
Fed4FIRE+ runs and continuously improves the largest federation of in the world in this NGI area, covering 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 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.
