International Conference on Software-Defined and Virtualized Future Wireless Networks
October 27-29, Rome, Italy.
While the past few decades have witnessed the rapid growth in mobile and wireless networks, numerous problems and challenges become increasingly serious, such as heterogeneous wireless networks, spectrum scarcity, smooth evolving and fast deployment, technologies innovations, QoS and QoE support, etc. Traditional mobile and wireless network technologies can hardly overcome these challenges.
Software defined network, an innovative paradigm, has become one of the hottest topics in wired and wireless networking. It advocates separating the control plane and data plane, and abstracting the control functions of the network into a logically centralized control plane. However, key technologies in software defined wireless networks (SDWN) are still open, including the end-to-end architecture, design and implementation of wireless technologies, software defining strategies, etc. At the same time, cloud computing and network virtualization are considered as a promising way that benefits future wireless networks, such as using the cloud computing pool providing powerful computing capability to implement the baseband data processing of wireless communication. However, how to design, customize, and utilize the virtualization and cloud computing technologies targeted for the wireless networks are still open problems.
Against this background, Software-Defined and Virtualized Future Wireless Network is a new conference that aims to explore the new design space, the new challenges and solutions, as well as new applications and services of software-defined virtualized future mobile and wireless networks. The goal of the conference is to solicit original and inspiring research contributions from technology experts, designers, researchers, and architects in academia and industry. Bringing together practitioners and researchers to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices.
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
New end-to-end mobile and wireless network architecture based on SDWN, cloud computing, and virtualization technologies
Cloud computing and network virtualization technologies for RAN, backhaul and core networks
Software defining and abstracting strategies for network function and air interface technologies in future wireless networks
