International Workshop on Smart Technologies (WOSTech)

The motive of Workshop on Smart Technologies (WOSTech) is to bring together computer scientists, researchers, engineers, and people from industry to exploit the world in a best possible way for mankind through smart technologies. WOSTech in conjunction with ICFNDS 2017 has the current focus on Softwrae Defined Networking and Technology transfer towards smart global village. SDN; A game changer technology having an important transformational force, is at the forefront and going to become the backbone of application economy. It provides support on the dynamic, scalable computing and storage needs of current complex digital networks and allows adaptive control and operations of networks in a cost-effective manner. On the other hand, Internet of Things (IoT) on the rise is a mass-media hot topic and is very enthusiastic to transform the Global Village into Smart Global Village. IP-enabled devices, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, Cloud Computing, Big Data, RFID, White Space TV Spectrum, iPhone Apps and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are the most highlighted actors of IoT. These represent a compelling opportunity across a staggering array of applications covering homes, warehouses, offices, hospitals, factories, metro infrastructure, agriculture and transportation to make life easier, safer, and greener for millions of people in this smart global village.

The emphasis here is to present smart solutions that address the recent emerging trends in Softwae Defined Networking and actors in Technology transfer towards smart global village, and associated challenges to meet with underlying requirements. We are also welcoming the topics of mostly theoretical nature, provided they give a clear practical potential in applying the results of such work. Major topics of interest in WOSTech-ICFNDS’17 include but are not limited to the following:

--) Software Defined Networking

Emergence role in softwareization
Standardization, protocols and layering architectures
Intelligent algorithms, frameworks, and architectures
Implementation issues and prospective solutions
QoE assessment and management tools and techniques
Automation, troubleshooting and management tools
Dynamic resource provisioning and management
Testing, security, privacy and reliability
Traffic and data engineering
Efficient, secure, and real time Information flow
Robust control, network control and information-based control management
Integration of SDN-enabled mobile and fixed networks for various services; VoIP, multimedia, content delivery, etc.
SDN in smart environment; social networking, smart homes, smart logistics, smart grid, etc.
Challenges in deploying software defined networks alongside conventional networks
Applications, challenges and solutions of SDN Integration with emerging technologies; internet of things, network function virtualization, cloud computing, virtual switches, etc.
Simulation and modeling of design, deployment and operation
Orchestration API, orchestration of virtual resources
Northbound and Southbound Programming
Programming and Debugging of SDN Elements and System

--) Technology Transfer towards Smart Global Village

Algorithms and standards in technology transfer from WSNs to IoT
Energy harvesting, scavenging, and its efficient consumption
Efficient and resilient communication
Simulation and real implementation of experimental System
Data processing and Big data related issues
interoperability related Issues and challenges in technology transfer
Deployment (energy, cost, error prevention, localization)
High-level methods and tools
Cost (of node, energy, development, deployment, maintenance)
Existing and potential adaptation barriers and their solutions
Storage and services (cloud, database, data structure, object oriented)
Various application scenarios
SDN and IoT
Paper Submission, and Reviewing

Make sure to read the detailed author guidelines BEFORE you create your submission.
Paper (6 - 9 pages including references) submissions should be written in English and submitted through the online submission system and strictly adhering to the specified format to be considered for reviewing and publication.
Authors wishing to present a poster and/or demo may submit a 1 to 2 page extended abstract, which, if accepted, will appear in the ICFNDS 2017 conference proceedings.
The current ACM proceedings templates in Word and LaTeX formats can be downloaded from here.
The TPC chairs may immediately reject submissions that violate the formatting requirements.
The submission system can report some formatting violations in papers that you upload. You can also visually inspect a page-by-page report of your paper format using this online tool.
Each paper must deal with original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors).
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts in the relevant field based on its originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. ensuring the publication of only top quality contributions. When a paper is accepted at least one of the authors has to register to the conference and deliver the related talk.
The contact author will receive an email from ACM Rightsreview ( with a link to the electronic ACM copyright-permission form(s) to be completed. Upon completing the electronic form, you will receive a confirmation email. Contained within the confirmation email will be the ACM copyright-permission block text, conference data, and DOI string/url specific for your submission and mandatory to appear on the first page of your paper.
Proceedings, Indexing and Journal Publications

The WOSTech-ICFNDS’17 proceedings will be published as part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by the ACM and available online from the ACM Digital Library. Therefore, all the policies and regulations of ACM ICPS will be applied as detailed in the (ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism page).
Authors of selected outstanding papers in WOSTech-ICFNDS’17 will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications, Springer (IF-1.00) and other ISI/Scopus indexed journals (to be announced soon).
