SDNFlex 2019

3rd Workshop on Software-Defined Networking and
Network Function Virtualization
for Flexible Network Management (SDNFlex)

Co-located with NetSys, March 18-21, 2019 - Munich, Germany

http://sdnflex.org/


Call for Papers

Network management currently undergoes changes towards more flexible
network management. This trend is stimulated by Network Virtualization
and Software Defined Networks (SDN) that emerged in recent years.
These technologies allow networks to be run in a more flexible and
cost efficient manner, e.g., by increasing network resource
utilization and by decreasing operational costs. As an emerging topic,
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) allows even further flexibility
by migrating network functions (e.g., DHCP, PPPoE) from dedicated
hardware to virtual machines running on commodity hardware.
Virtualized network functions are appealing to network operators since
they can be migrated and flexibly adapted to current demands.

The newly achieved flexibility in network management, particularly for
NFV, opens a set of currently unresolved key questions concerning
i) reliability, ii) service orchestration iii) function placement, and
iv) performance. How to operate virtualized network functions in a
reliable manner by providing redundancy and load balancing? Can
virtualized network functions provide performance figures required for
network operations and how can such virtualized services be
benchmarked and compared? Where should network functions be placed to
optimize the network subject to different design criteria? How can
services be orchestrated? How can network monitoring be adapted to
such flexible networks? This workshop aims at addressing these and
similar questions in virtualized networks.

Topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:

- SDN/NFV architectures, applications, and use cases
- Network monitoring and QoE
- Reliability of virtualized network functions
- SDN/NFV-based service orchestration
- SDN/NFV-based network deployment and management
- Business considerations and economic aspects
- SDN/NFV security
- Theoretical foundations of SDN/NFV networks
- Network Operating Systems and Languages
- SDN in Mobile and Wireless Networks
- Network Service Chaining
- Performance evaluation of virtualized environments
- Performance models of virtualized environments
- Programmable data planes

Important Dates:
* Submission: November 15, 2018
* Notification: December 20, 2018
* Camera-ready: January 15, 2019
* Workshop: March 18, 2019

Submission Guidelines:
All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not
considered elsewhere for publication. We invite submissions
up to 6 pages long (10pt font, double column, IEEE format),
including text, figures and references.

IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting
instructions, are available online:
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Each paper will undergo a thorough process of peer reviews by at
least three members of the technical program committee. Accepted
and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings
and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and
Indexing (A&I) databases. Submission implies that at least one author
will register and attend the workshop to present the publication if
the paper is accepted.

Contributions should be submitted electronically as PDF, using the IEEE conference publishing template, via the conference submission website: https://hotcrp.comsys.rwth-aachen.de/sdnflex2019/


Organizing Committee:
* Oliver Hohlfeld, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
