Call For Papers

IEEE PVE-SDN 2022 Call For Papers
On Performance Evaluation of Next Generation Virtualized Environments and Software-Defined Networks Co-located with the IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2022), Milan, Italy, 27 June–1 July 2022.

The 4th PVE-SDN workshop aims to explore potential challenges and solutions for the goal of provisioning network performance in next generation virtualized and software-defined network environments. The design and deployment of elastic content- and service-delivery virtual networks in cloud-based data centers whose backbones consist of software-defined physical networks has accordingly led to a dynamic, multi-layer architecture for network functions. This generates new challenges in maintaining performance and quality of service for service providers. New ideas and frameworks for performance measurement and network management are therefore needed. Moreover, it is expected that the exponential growth in Internet of Things (IoT) and massive machine-to-machine communication, coupled with demands for ultra-low latency, high bandwidth, high precision communications and high availability and reliability requirements of new breeds of future network applications, will drive the future Internet technologies, services and architecture. The future network applications are expected to include high-precision, multi-dimensional information delivery such as holographic type communication, immersive virtual reality, telepresence, tele-surgery, and industrial avatars. Guaranteeing adequate Quality of Experience (QoE) performance for such high-precision services are expected to primarily rely on accurate and timely measuring and maintaining network performance in next generation networks.

Submissions are welcomed on a variety of topics including but not limited to:

• Performance models, metrics and measurements for virtualized networking environments
• Quality of Service and Quality of Experience in next generation SDN and NFV networks
• Content distribution in virtualized environments and software-defined networks
• Resource-aware virtualization and infrastructure as a service
• Management of software-defined ecosystems
• High-Precision and Qualitative Communication Services
• SDN/NFV Performance in the Context of 5G
• Design and assessment of efficient SDN northbound/southbound interfaces
• Performance of multi-controller SDN deployments
• Service function chaining performance evaluation
• Performance of NFV orchestration solutions
• Analysis of SDN and/or NFV systems
• SDN/NFV in the Context of BlockChains, and FinTech
• Role of virtualization and software defined environment in enhanced governance and digital transformation
• Policy paradigms related to software defined environments

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers prepared using IEEE 2-column conference style (IEEE paper Template) with no more than 6 pages including figures and references. The PDF version of the paper should be submitted through EDAS:
