SDN-NFV 2017 : The IEEE First international workshop on Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization
Call For Papers
The emerging networking techniques such as Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are promising a complete paradigm shift in how we manage our future networks. With their enormous benefits which include reducing the operational cost, better resources utilization and easier management requirements, the adoption of such technologies is gaining momentum. Supported by a well-defined basis such as network virtualization and the decoupling of the data and control planes, the integration of SDN and NFV with current systems might be a straightforward process. However, this might incur many challenges which require deep analysis to propose creative solutions. In the (SDN-NFV 2017) workshop, we are aiming to invite researchers from both the academia and the industry to present their state of the art research efforts and findings and to open the doors for discussion about how to contribute of the advancement of this important research field.
The First International workshop on Software Defined Network and Network Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV) will be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in the areas of SDN, NFV, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing . We are mainly interested in receiving state of the art work on different aspect of SDN and NFV management system, security and privacy, cloud computing and big data supported SDN and NFV, to mention but few.
The topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
Software Defined Network (SDN) Architectures and Design
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Architectures and Design
SDN-NFV Based Control plane design
SDN-NFV Based Data plane design
SDN-NFV Performance Management
SDN-NFV support for Cloud based DataCenter
SDN-NFV support for 5G Networks
