On Sep 26th and 27th we organize a meeting of the EU project TREND. The research conducted in this project is in the field of energy efficient networking. The second day of the project is dedicated to several research talks by members of the project as well as some external speakers. Those interested in attending to these sessions are welcome to do so. The only requirement is to complete the registration form by Thursday, September 22nd: http://www.fp7-trend.eu/content/registration-meeting-madrid-trend-partners-and-cis-26-27-september-2011
TREND is a Network of Excellence, coordinated by Politecnico di Torino, and funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme.
TREND aims at integrating the activities of major European players in networking, including manufacturers, operators, research centers, to quantitatively assess the energy demand of current and future telecom infrastructures, and to design energy-efficient, scalable and sustainable future networks.
The NoE will integrate and drive the many recent research efforts in energy-efficient networking towards commonly agreed technical goals, laying down the bases for a new holistic approach to energy-efficient networking, investigating effective strategies and mechanisms to reduce energy consumption in current and future networks in general, and the future Internet in particular. We aim at identifying the best answers to the following questions:
The aim of TREND is to establish the integration of the EU research community in green networking with a long term perspective to consolidate the European leadership in the field.
