- Wired and wireless testbeds
- Ubiquitous network and sensor testbeds
- Monitoring in large scale testbeds
- Experimental facilities for large scale testbeds
- Large scale testbed federation
- Global connection and cooperation of heterogeneous testbeds
- Testbed and experimental equipment
- Next Generation Internet testbeds
- Next Generation optical network testbeds
- Testbed operation & management
- Innovative measurements methodologies & tools
- Testbed virtualization
- GRID, P2P and overlay testbeds
- Smart home and converged communication and multimedia services testbeds
- Configurable hardware/software platforms for testbeds
- Testbed tools for interoperability and benchmarking
