The Fourth International workshop on Software Defined Networks and Network
Function Virtualization (SDN-NFV 2020)
< >

in conjunction with

The Seventh International Conference on Software Defined Systems (SDS-2020)
< >

Paris, France. April 20-23, 2020

(Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE France Section)

*SDN-NFV 2020 CFP*

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 2020) 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 Fourth 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 art work on 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 of the
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


Papers selected for presentation will appear in the SDN-NFV and SDS
Proceedings, which will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Papers
must be 6 pages max in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11"
two-column format, single space, A4 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

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.
