Call For Papers

Synopsis and Goal
EWSDN has been focusing during the last years in bringing together, in a highly interactive event, researchers and practitioners at the leading edges of software-based networks, following a rather practical approach and seeking for being useful to establish links, technical exchanges and interactions among the community in Europe and beyond.

Contributions to the Workshop
This year we are interested in papers showing preliminary results as well as consolidated results backed by experimentation. Also we encourage submission of position papers bringing up innovative ideas. Topics for contributions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Advancements in SDN technology

Virtualization architectures
New controller architectures, APIs and northbound interfaces
Forwarding abstractions, APIs, object models
New switch architectures and software/hardware implementations supporting SDN
SDN frameworks and tools, SDN-based equipment: controllers, switches, integrated development environment, verifying, testing and debugging environment


Network Function Virtualization and SDN, network virtualization techniques
Interoperation of cloud architectures and SDN
Security implications of SDN and security enhancements to SDN, as well as new security services enabled by SDN

Interaction with legacy networks

Wireless integration, characterization of wireless interfaces, flows, handover support
Optical extensions to OpenFlow, Transport SDN
Evolved packet core, LTE support for OpenFlow
Carrier-grade SDN architectures and equipment
Access networks

Application and SDN

Middleware for application and SDN
QoS/QoE control techniques with SDN
Application of SDN in novel areas
SDN architectures for 5G networks

Education and SDN/NFV

Theory of SDN
Teaching virtualized networks
Use of large testbeds for education

Experimentation and deployments

Practical experiments on SDN/Cloud/OpenFlow/ForCES
Testbeds/Research and Education Networks (REN) deployment and operation
Multi-domain interconnection/exchange mechanism for SDN

Industry and SDN

Identification of use cases for SDN, SDN-related service and business models, strategic role of SDN in network evolution
Regulatory aspects around network virtualization
Standardization: ONF, ETSI, IETF, IRTF...cooperation, interest clash?

Submission and Publication
Submission format is CPS Conference style, A4 format, of up to 6 pages, double column, 10pt font. Please use standard CPS conference proceedings template in A4 format. EWSDN submission will be managed using the EasyChair submission system, check the web for the submission link.

EWSDN Workshop Proceedings will be submitted for indexing and publication to IEEE Xplore.
