Call For Papers

Dear Colleague;

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2nd International Workshop on Cloud-Service DataCenter Networks (CDN 2016)
That is going to be held in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Future
Networks and Communications (FNC 2016) in Montreal, QC, Canada, August 15-18, 2016.

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: April 1, 2016
Authors Notification: May 25, 2016
Camera-ready for Accepted Papers: June 25, 2016


Today’s Data-Center Networks (DCNs) employ expensive high-level networking equipments
in associated structures thatwere not originally designed to meet the increasing requirements of the current large-scale DCNs' services. Limitations that vary between reliability, resource utilization, and high costs are challenging. The era of Cloud Computing represents a promise to overcome the aforementioned challenge, and provide for scalable services.

The computing platforms of such Cloud-Service DCNs consist of large number of commodity servers that, with a theme of virtualization on top, can meet the reliability and performance of the expensive high-level servers at only a fraction of the price.

Recently, the research in virtual DCNs started to evolve rapidly. Being virtual networks, this opened the path for the concept of network migration. Indeed, virtual DCNs can migrate from one physical location to another for many reasons starting
from power requirements to resource availability. Now, when considering the idea of migration, many factors need to be taken into account in order to find the appropriate place that satisfies the requirements of the migrating network while not affecting the hosting ones.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to

- Cloud-service data-center networks.
- Theoretical analysis for data-center networks.
- Physical data-center network migration.
- Virtual Data-center networks.
- Migrating cloud-service data-center network.
- Optimal data-center networks' architecture.
- Intra and Inter network traffic engineering in data-center networks.
- Software Defined Networks and virtual networking devices.
- Analysis of the cloud network systems.
- Addressing and load-balancing in cloud-service data-center networks.


All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the FNC-2016 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series. The authors must follow Elsevier guidelines given in FNC-2016 website. The number of pages for the workshop papers is limited to 6 pages.

Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and it will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus ( and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index.
