PVE-SDN

IEEE ICNP 2017 Workshop PVE-SDN

Approaches, Analyses, and Performance Issues in Virtualized Environments and Software Defined Networking

Co-located with the IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP 2017), Toronto, Canada

October 10, 2017.

 

Call for Papers

The emergence of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) as two pillars of a new networking paradigm has led to design and deployment of elastic content- and service-delivery virtual networks on cloud-based data centres whose backbones consist of software-defined substrate physical networks. This dynamic, multi-layer architecture for network functions introduces new challenges in maintaining performance and quality of service for service providers, and requires new ideas and frameworks in performance measurement and network management. This workshop aims to bring together academic and industry researchers from software-defined ecosystems to identify and discuss technical challenges, state of the art techniques, and contemporary results related to performance analysis of SDN and NFV environments. Submissions are welcomed on a variety of topics including but not limited to:

  • Performance models for virtualized environments
  • Performance metrics in virtualized environments
  • Performance measurement in virtualized environments
  • Quality of Service and Quality of Experience in cloud-based networks
  • Content distribution in virtualized environments and software-defined networks
  • Resource-aware virtualisation and infrastructure as a service
  • Management of software-defined ecosystems
  • Service provider requirements
  • SDN/NFV Performance in Context of 5G
  • Performance of SDN data, control, and management planes
  • Design and assessment of efficient SDN northbound/southbound interfaces
  • Performance of multi-controller SDN deployments
  • Service function chaining performance evaluation
  • Performance of NFV orchestration solutions
  • Approaches relavant to SDN and/or NFV
  • Analysis of SDN and/or NFV systems
  • SDN/NFV in Context of BlockChains, and FinTech

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers. Papers must have no more than 10 pages, including figures and possible references in IEEE Computer Society format, although contributions of 5 or more pages will be considered sufficient.  All the accepted papers need to be presented at the workshop. They will be included in the workshop proceedings as well as IEEE Xplore.
