Call for Papers
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are basic enablers for today's cloud network innovations. They decouple network functions from the physical network substrate and provide the opportunity for virtualized cloud networks and virtualized cloud network functions. Consequently, network overlays, Network Function Chaining (NFC), SDN cloud network federations, and NFV-based applications are a fundamental driving force for innovations in cloud environments. They provide opportunities for several new and optimized network services in this area and extend the flexibility of Cloud Computing (CC) in general.

SDN and NFV are supporting todays requirements for on demand scalable networks and network functions. These technologies are evolving the Cloud Computing landscape with promising applications for NFV-based cloud services. Moreover, they further enable the deployment of completely new network functions that enable e.g. new monitoring and pricing methods or even energy efficiency for cloud networks.

This workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to explore and present ideas and results of SDN and NFV applications in Cloud Computing. We invite submissions of original and unpublished research contributions related to SDN and NFV in Cloud Computing and particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

SDN deployment and operation studies
SDN network management
SDN testbeds
NFV architectures
NFV application deployments
SDN infrastructure management
SDN based network overlays
Virtual SDN networks
Network visualization
SDN network orchestration
Network Function Chaining
Network Service Chaining
Multi-controller architectures
Cloud based network OS integration
SDN network federation
SDN based network QoS
SDN based network SLAs
SDN based network monitoring
SDN or NFV approaches for high throughput
SDN or NFV approaches for low latency
SDN or NFV approaches for Big Data
SDN and NFV based cloud computing
SDN and NFV enabled infrastructure or cloud managers
SDN and NFV based green Cloud Computing

Submissions and Proceedings
All papers accepted for this workshop will be included in the FNC-2016 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier. The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines as given by the FNC-2016 paper format. The number of pages for workshop papers is limited to 6 pages. Authors should submit their contributions electronically in PDF format via EasyChair using the following submission Link.
