3. KuVS Fachgespräch "Network Softwarization"

7./8.4.2022 (online)

Call for Papers

Software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), and programmable data planes (such as P4) are summarized as network softwarization. They are considered core ingredients of future networks. Although they are still under research, these novel networking paradigms have partly entered production stage for specific use cases. Major drivers are cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and security.

This workshop would like to discuss advances in this area as well as opportunities and challenges for various use cases in the field of datacenter, ISP, 5G/6G, industrial, and campus networks. Practical experience reports from prototypes, testbeds, and deployments are welcome. The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

This is the third workshop of this series. Previous workshops:

1. KuVS Workshop on "Network Softwarization" - From Research to Application
