*​SDS 2018 ​Call for Papers:​​​*

Next generation cloud systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are
constructed and managed. Conventional control and management platforms are
facing considerable challenges regarding flexibility, dependability and
security that next generation systems will require. The cloud computing
paradigm has gone part of the way towards alleviating some of the problems
associated with resource allocation, utilization and managements (e.g., via
elasticity). However, many of the elements of a well-designed cloud
environment remain “stiff” and hard to modify and adapt in an integrated
fashion. This includes underlying networking topologies, many aspects of
the user control over IaaS, PaaS or SaaS layers when such is needed,
construction of XaaS services, provenance and meta-data collection, and so
on. In many situations the problem may be because service abstraction is
inadequate. Software Defined Systems (SDS) are systems that have added
software components which help abstract actual IT equipment and other
layers. One classical example, of course, are hypervisors. Such separation
provides a great opportunity for system administrators to more easily
construct and managing their systems through flexible software layers.

Software Defined Systems include Software Defined Networking (SDN),
Software Defined Storage, Software Defined Servers (Virtualization),
Software Defined Datacenters (SDD), Software Defined Security (SDSec), and
ultimately Software Defined Clouds (SDCloud) to name a few possibilities.
Individual solutions and seamless integration of these abstractions remains
in many respects a challenge. After the high success of the previous
editions (SDS'2014, SDS'2015, SDS'2016 and SDS'2017), The
​fifth International conference on Software Defined Systems 2018 (SDS'2018)
will continue to be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and
practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, and
developments in the area of software defined systems – both components and
their integration - and by implication advancement of next generation
clouds.

SDS 2018 aims to investigate the opportunities and in all aspects of
Software Defined Systems. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions
that help mitigating SDS challenges. That is, the objective of SDS 2018 is
to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss
and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of
Software Defined Systems. Researchers are encouraged to submit original
research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited
to:

* Software Defined Systems support for Cloud Computing .

*Important Dates*Submission Date: 15 December 2017
Notification to Authors: 15 February 2018
Camera Ready Submission: 1 March 2018

*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings*Manuscripts should be prepared in
10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format. All papers
should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper Submission
Link. A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including all
figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original
unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other
conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be
rejected without review. Also submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information
or clarification.

All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted
papers will appear in the SDS Proceedings, and be published by the IEEE
Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be submitted to IEEE
Xplore for inclusion.

Submitted papers must include original work, and must not be under
consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of regular
papers must not exceed 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format.
Please include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and
fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted
papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as
regular papers will be accepted as short papers. Length of short papers

*Journal Special Issues*Selected papers from the will be invited to submit
an extended version to the following journal. Papers will be selected based
on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s theme. All
extended versions will undergo reviews and must represent original
unpublished research work. Further details will be made available at a
later stage. ​
