Call For Papers

The 2022 IEEE NFV-SDN conference will be held in Chandler (Arizona), USA at Intel on Nov. 14-16, 2022. It again is an important forum for the ongoing exchange of the latest ideas, developments, and results amongst ecosystem partners in both academia and industry. The conference fosters knowledge sharing and discussion on new approaches and works ad-dressing gaps and improvements in virtualized enabled architectures, algorithms, and operational frameworks for virtualized network functions and infrastructures.

Topics of interest
The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

NFV, CNF, and SDN Architectures, Infrastructure, and Elements
- Emerging improvements, including Network Slicing and the unikernel paradigm
- Improvements in the design of forwarding elements, e.g., switches/routers, wireless systems
- Optimizing virtualized infrastructures, including hardware acceleration technologies
- Heterogeneous server platforms and the detailed element-level CPU/GPU/FPGA mapping of network functions
- SDN/CNF/NFV in recent and novel architecture paradigms
- Architectural design aspects toward Next-Generation wireless networks,
- Virtualization Technologies for Edge/Fog Computing
- Microservice-based and agent-based SDN/NFV
- SDN/NFV in 6G three-dimensional networking

NFV, CNF, and SDN Operations
- Dynamic license management, autonomics, machine learning, monitoring, resiliency, fault management and self-healing
- Network security and isolation impacts of virtualization technologies
- Advanced tools for automated design, deployment, validation and management
- Application of machine learning and big data analytics to manage to simplify deployment and operation of SDN/NFV networks
- SDN/NFV orchestration and operations in 6G network continuum

Performance Analysis and Optimization
- Costs of migration of application containers and workloads
- Data/control plane performance, interoperability and scalability studies
- Resource dimensioning and optimization (e.g., cloud-native design), workload isolation and tradeoffs
- Design guidelines for modularity, scalability, high availability and interoperability (e.g., container and micro services implementations)
- SDN/NFV new KPIs and trade-offs in 6G architecture

Results and Evaluations in Application Scenarios
- Comparative studies on different virtualization technologies
- Usage scenarios such as SD-WAN, IoT, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, etc.
- Improvements in future communication infrastructure enabled by SDN and NFV including fixed and wireless access, public, private and hybrid clouds
- Social and regulatory impacts (e.g., network implications of data location and privacy)
- Operational experience in operational networks (e.g., 5G deployments)

Submission guidelines
Full technical papers should have a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font), including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS. Papers should be submitted via EDAS.
