EAI TRIDENTCOM 2020 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI TRIDENTCOM 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Participants will still be able to enjoy unique interactive benefits – learn more.


Internet and 5G communications promote the development of emerging information technologies, such as Software-Defined Network, Industrial 4.0, IoT, BlockChain, green data center. However, we need tools for design, implementation and verification of these emerging information technologies. TRIDENTCOM 2020 will serve as a forum where researchers, vendors, providers and users will exchange ideas on past experience, requirements, needs and visions for developing and using supporting tools. Apart from regular paper presentations, TRIDENTCOM 2020 will feature a rich variety of other activities such as tutorials, workshops, panels and demos in order to enhance the visibility of innovative mechanisms and practices.
