1. KuVS Fachgespräch "Network Softwarization"
– From Research to Application

12.-13.10.2017 at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen

Call for Papers

Software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), and network programmability in general are considered core ingredients of future networks and are summarized as network softwarization. Although they are still under research, these novel networking paradigms have already entered production stage for specific use cases. Major drivers are cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and security.

This workshop would like to discuss in particular experience reports from deployments and prototypes, testbeds as well as opportunities and challenges for various use cases in the field of datacenter, ISP, industrial, and campus networks. The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:
