Call For Papers

Software-defined infrastructure can be under the control of individual organizations, but often they are connected together in a federated manner to provide richer services. Within these federated contexts, the requirements for formal information exchange and lifecycle management become even more complex and stringent. The federation of multiple, separately administrated infrastructures requires that they are available for utilization under common APIs, authentication/authorization schemes and tools. This is a hard task, as various providers might use different approaches to manage their cyber resources and/or services. Given the heterogeneity of the resources on offer in these infrastructures, one particular issue that emerges is the description of these offerings.
The main objective of SWSDI 2016 is to study the applicability and maturity of Semantic Web based methodologies for modelling the newly emerging software-defined (computing and networking) infrastructures, particularly federated infrastructures and federated Clouds. Furthermore, SWSDI 2016 aims to identify how the Semantic Web surpasses other approaches, such as the exchange of simple XML or JSON serialized tree data structures.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the application of Semantic Web technologies and ontology development for:

* Software Defined Infrastructures (SDIs) and Cloud Computing
* Federated Clouds and Federated Infrastructures
* Software Defined Networking (SDN), Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN), and Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
* Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO)
* Internet of Everything (IoE) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
* Big Data and Analytics
* Wireless, Cellular, and Sensor Networks

Submission Guidelines
Papers must not exceed six (6) pages in length and formatted according to the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. All papers must be submitted in PDF format.
More information about LNCS format is available at
All submissions are done via EasyChair system:
All submissions must be written in English. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed by three independent reviewers. The accepted papers must be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be included in the CEUR workshop proceedings. Furthermore, best papers accepted at the workshop will be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC2016, which will appear in the Springer LNCS series.
**At least one author of each paper has to register for the workshop and present the paper.**
