The 5th IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization
"Unleashing the Power of Network Softwarization"

June 24-28, 2019 - Paris, France


The 5th IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2019)
will be held on June 24-28, 2019 in Paris, France. IEEE NetSoft has been created
as a flagship conference aiming at addressing ìSoftwarization" of networks
and systemic trends concerning the convergence of Cloud Computing, Software-
Defined Networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

*** Scope ***
Over the years, software has become the core value provider in the telecommuni-
cations industry. Boosted by scientific breakthrough, continuous innovation and
stringent requirements for new services, the telecommunications transformation
is on track and filled with opportunities. The supporting technologies are
maturing at great pace and softwarization is recognized as a major enabler
by many standardization efforts and industrial initiatives.

This trend will be reflected in NetSoft 2019 in the various topics of interest
under the theme "Unleashing the power of network softwarization" and the
conference will serve as a forum to discuss the latest advances in this area in
both industry and academia related.

*** Topics of interest ***
NetSoft 2019 will feature technical paper presentations, keynotes, tutorials,
demos and exhibitions from world-leading experts representing service providers,
vendors, research institutes, open source projects, and academia. Additionally,
topical workshops will be co-located so various call for proposals are issued.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Programmable SDN and NFV: languages, architectures, environments
- Softwarized cloud, fog, and edge infrastructures
- Cognitive and autonomic networking
- Network slicing and slice management
- Mobility management in software networks
- Policy-based and Intent-Based Networking
- Centralized vs Distributed control, management & orchestration
- Abstractions and virtualization of resources, services, and functions
- Service Function Chaining
- Container/microservice-based network functions
- Efficient network/service monitoring in SDN/NFV
- AI techniques to support network automation
- Analytics and big data approaches for managing softwarized networks
- QoS and QoE in softwarized infrastructures
- Resilience, reliability, and robustness of softwarized networks
- Cooperative multi-party, multi-domain, multi-tenant SDN/NFV environments
- Security, Safety, Trust and Privacy support in virtualized environments
- SDN switch/router architecture and design
- Dynamic resource discovery mechanisms and service parameter/resource
negotiation schemes
- APIs, protocols, and languages for programmable networks
- Lifecycle management of network software
- DevOps methodologies for network softwarization
- Debugging and introspection of software-defined virtualized systems
- Service fulfillment assurance systems in SDN/NFV environments
- Softwarized platforms for Internet of Things (IoT)
- Energy efficient and green software-defined infrastructures (SDI)
- Transition strategies from existing networks to SDN/NFV
- New service models and paradigms enabled by softwarization
- New value chains and business models
- Socio-economic impact and regulatory implications for softwarization
- Experience reports from experimental testbeds and deployments
