Call For Papers
The IEEE NFV-SDN conference brings together researchers from around the world to share ideas that can impact the evolution and operation of NFV and SDN technologies. We encourage submission of innovative work on NFV and SDN. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

NFV and SDN Architectures

    Advances in Control planes, forwarding abstractions and programmability paradigms
    Analysis of combined control plane architectures
    Emerging improvements including Network Slicing and hierarchical controllers

 NFV and SDN Infrastructure and Elements

    Improvements in design of forwarding elements, e.g. switches/routers, wireless systems
    Optimizing NFV infrastructures including hardware acceleration technologies

NFV and SDN Operations

    Dynamic service function chaining/orchestration and traffic steering
    Dynamic license management, autonomics, machine learning, monitoring, resiliency, fault management and self-healing
    Security impacts
    Advanced tools for automated design, deployment, validation and management
    Application of machine learning and big data analytics to manage virtualized networks

Performance Analysis and Optimization

    Data/control plane performance, interoperability and scalability studies
    Resource dimensioning and optimization (e.g. cloud-native design), workload isolation and tradeoffs
    Design guidelines for modularity, scalability, high availability and interoperability (e.g. container and micro services implementations)

Results and Evaluations in Application Scenarios

    Usage scenarios such as SD-WAN, IoT, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, etc.
    Improvements in future communication infrastructure enabled by SDN and NFV including RAN, evolution to 5G, public, private and hybrid clouds
    Operations experience (e.g. lab. and field trial results)
    New commercial models and ecosystems enabled by NFV and SDN
