Call For Papers
We solicit submission of high-quality full papers reporting original and novel research results on all above topics. Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted elsewhere. Full papers must be formatted as the standard IEEE double-column conference template and submitted exclusively in PDF on EDAS. Maximum 7 pages are allowed for each paper, including all illustrations and references.


The new IEEE NFV-SDN conference aims at bringing researchers all around the world together to share ideas that can impact the evolution and operationalization of NFV and SDN technologies. We encourage submission of innovative work on NFV and SDN . The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

SDN architectures, application programming interfaces, protocols, and programming languages

Design of SDN-based forwarding elements (switch/router, optical, wireless, gateways, etc.)

Control plane architectures and network operating systems in NFV and SDN infrastructures

New forwarding plane abstractions and programmability paradigms

NFV Infrastructure architectures including Hardware acceleration technologies

Applications enabled by NFV and SDN networks.

Data plane and control plane scalability and inter-operability studies

Performance evaluation, performance optimization, isolation, tradeoffs & planning rules for multiple NFV workloads

Reliability, resiliency and fault management approaches.

Design guidelines and patterns for architecting VNFs that are scalable, available, composable, modular, etc.

Security deployment issues including monitoring, security function virtualization, security as a service, dynamic service chaining 	Tools for validating network services and automating their deployment and management

Applying compositional patterns for parallelism, control logic, performance, monitoring and reliability of network services

Management, monitoring, and metering in NFV and SDN-based networks

Application of Big Data models and analytics to NFV and SDN

Commercial and economic models and implications for NFV and SDN ecosystems

Service & information orchestration/chaining and fife-cycle management

Autonomic (self) management technologies in NFV and SDN (e.g., configuration, processing of alarms)

Distributed and scalable controller architectures- both SDN Controllers and control of virtualized resources (compute, network, storage)

Scalability dimensions on control architectures

Software-based Integration of computing, storage & networks

Security opportunities and challenges in SDN and NFV

Security proof-of-concept
