CFP: Workshop on Software Defined Networks (SDN'12)
I believe the CFP below will be of direct interest
to many of us. Please note the deadline: Nov 30, 2011.
Workshop on Software Defined Networks (SDN'12)
In conjunction with ICC 2012, June 12 - 15 2012, Ottawa Canada
Submission deadline: Nov. 30, 2011
CALL FOR PAPERS
Telecommunication networks are traditionally defined by the messages
exchanged between the network elements and realised by "black boxes"
combining software and hardware as an inseparable unit. Innovations in
such an environment can only happen through the standards bodies or
through ingenious exploits of, often proprietary, features. In
contrast, the computer industry has profited for a long time from the
clean separation of hardware capability and the software providing a
multitude of services, separated by a relatively stable and minimal
interface (e.g. x86 command set). Support for efficient and secure
‘slicing’ (virtualisation) opened the door for new business models and
allowed the creation of new services on top of services provided and
managed by others.
There is now increased interest in academia as well as industry to do
the same for network equipment and with it “open up” the network. This
is increasingly driven by the new challenges posed by massive data
centers as well as the increased focus on energy consumption. However,
the challenges posed by programming “across the elements” as well as
increasingly “down the stack” are substantial and will require radical
re-thinking of established practices. It will also require new skill
sets for networking researchers to tackle these challenges as well as
a potential change in what we teach students in this field.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together practitioners of
SDN, from across the different sub-disciplines (e.g., optical,
wireless, packet networks) as well as from academy and industry, to
exchange ideas, present exciting new approaches, as well as openly
discuss challenges and opportunities. SDN'12 will provide a venue for
debating broad future research agendas in SDN and for presenting
innovative ideas that may significantly influence the community and
industry in the years to come.
We invite researchers and practitioners of SDN to submit papers that
foster discussion of broad research agendas for this emerging research
area. We also encourage submissions of early-stage work describing
enticing but not yet proven ideas - Papers will be selected based on
originality, likelihood of spawning insightful discussions at the
workshop and technical merit.
