The 1st international INFINITY Project Workshop will be held in conjunction with the 8th international Conference on Testbeds and Research Infrastructures for the Development of Networks and Communities - TRIDENTCOM 2012, which will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, 11-13 of June 2012, with the aim of gathering information on the existing research testbeds in Europe.
The INfrastructures for the Future Internet commuNITY project - INFINITY - www.fi-infinity.eu - aims at identifying, analyzing and cataloguing existing and emerging experimental infrastructures, with the objective of creating a new repository of FI infrastructure capabilities and capacities that facilitates the creation of an international community working together to deliver the Future Internet.
Infrastructure owners responding to this call have the chance of promoting their testbed facilities to the community of researchers, to exchange their experiences with other infrastructure owners and to be included in the upcoming INFINITY Project's infrastructure repository


Prospective authors are invited to submit high quality infrastructure descriptions through our pre-built online tools, providing information about the facilities' resources and technologies, types of networks, applications and services, interoperability capabilities, availability, commercial status, usage restrictions and limitations, usage areas and application sectors. Further information includes security services, types of coverage and scale, previous utilizations as well as typical types of utilization. Also information about planned improvements and planned evolution of the infrastructure is highly relevant.
