-CALL FOR PAPERS

The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2017) will be held July 3-7, 2017 at the
University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy. IEEE NetSoft is the flagship conference of the IEEE SDN Initiative which
aims to address "Softwarization" of networks and systemic trends concerning the convergence of Cloud Computing,
Software-Defined Networks, and Network Function Virtualization.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into the area of software-defined and virtualized infrastructures. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:






SDN and NFV as enabling technologies for 5G
From Cloud Computing to Edge-Fog Computing
5G Functional Decomposition and Infrastructure slicing
5G sustainable ecosystems: IoT, Industry 4.0, Pervasive
Robotics, Self-driving vehicles, Tactile Internet, Immersive Communications, Artificial Intelligence applications
Software Defined infrastructures for Public Protection
and Disaster Relief (PPDR) network services
Service Function Chaining for NFV: Modeling, composition algorithms, deployment
Intent-based interfacing for NFV
SDN/NFV Network & Service Orchestration and Management
Management of federated SDN/NFV infrastructure and
frameworks

Real time operations and efficient network/service monitoring in SDN/NFV
Performance and scalability issues in NFV implementation scenarios
Traffic Engineering and QoS/QoE in SDN/NFV
APIs, protocols and languages for programmable networks and Software-Defined Infrastructure
SDN switch/router architectures/designs
SDN/NFV issues and opportunities for security, trust
and privacy
Experience reports from experimental testbeds and deployment
Softwarized platforms for Internet-of-Things (IoT)
New value chains and business models

SCOPE
The telecommunications landscape will change radically in the next few years. Pervasive ultra-broadband, programmable networks, and cost reduction of IT systems are paving the way to new services and commoditization of telecommunications infrastructure while lowering entrance barriers for new players and giving rise to new value chains.
While this results in considerable challenges for service providers, this transformation also brings unprecedented
opportunities for the Digital Society and the Digital Economy related to emerging new services and applications.
Examples include Tactile Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Cloud Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence. 5G will both exploit and accelerate this transformation.
NetSoft 2017 aims to capture the theme of "Softwarization Sustaining a Hyper-connected World: en route to 5G" and
serve as forum for researchers to discuss the latest advances in this area. NetSoft 2017 will feature technical paper,
keynotes, tutorials, and demos and exhibits from world-leading experts representing operators, vendors, research
institutes, open source projects, and academia.
PAPER SUBMISSION
Authors are invited to submit original contributions (written in English) in PDF format. Only original papers not published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Papers can be of two types: full (up to 9 pages) or
short (up to 5 pages) papers. Full Papers accepted as short Papers will be required to be reduced to 5-pages length.
Papers should be in IEEE 2-column US-Letter style using IEEE Conference template (http://www.ieee.org/
conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html) and submitted in PDF format via JEMS at: https://
jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=2657. Papers exceeding these limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers
will be rejected without further review. All submitted papers will be subject to a peer-review process. The accepted
papers will be published in IEEE Xplore, provided that the authors do present their paper at the conference.
