Dear colleagues, 

We are pleased to announce the Workshop entitled "The Third IEEE international workshop on Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization" (SDN-NFV2019) In conjunction with The Fourth IEEE International Conference on Software Defined Systems (SDS-2019) that will be held in Rome, Italy on June 10-13, 2019.

All published papers will be submitted for indexed in IEEE Xplore, SCOPUS, DBLP, and Google Scholar. 


The emerging networking techniques such as Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are promising a complete paradigm shift in how we manage our future networks. With their enormous benefits which include reducing the operational cost, better resources utilization and easier management requirements, the adoption of such technologies is gaining momentum. Supported by a well-defined basis such as network virtualization and the decoupling of the data and control planes, the integration of SDN and NFV with current systems might be a straightforward process. However, this might incur many challenges which require deep analysis to propose creative solutions. In the (SDN-NFV 2019) workshop, we are aiming to invite researchers from both the academia and the industry to present their state of the art research efforts and findings and to open the doors for discussion about how to contribute of the advancement of this important research field. 

The Third IEEE International Workshop on Software Defined Network and Network Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV) will be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in the areas of SDN, NFV, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing . We are mainly interested in receiving state of the artwork on a different aspect of SDN and NFV management system, security and privacy, cloud computing and big data supported SDN and NFV, to mention but few.

The topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to: 

  • Software Defined Network (SDN) Architectures and Design 
  • Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Architectures and Design 
  • SDN-NFV Integration 
  • SDN-NFV Orchestration 
  • SDN-NFV Based Control plane design 
  • SDN-NFV Based Data plane design 
  • SDN-NFV Performance Management 
  • SDN-NFV support for Cloud-based DataCenter 
  • SDN-NFV support for 5G Networks 
  • SDN-NFV support for Internet of Things (IoT) 
  • SDN-NFV support for Big Data Computing 
  • SDN-NFV support for large scale storage system 
  • Hardware system design for SDN-NFV 
  • SDN-NFV Security management 
  • Radio Access Network virtualization 
  • SDN-NFV in access networks 
  • Edge and Fog Computing 
  • Cloud Computing 
  • Case studies
