NetSoft 2021 - 7th IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization

Date2021-06-28 - 2021-07-02


VenueTokyo, Japan Japan



Topics/Call fo Papers

Over the years, software has become the core value provider in the
telecommunications industry. Boosted by scientific breakthroughs,
continuous innovation and stringent requirements for new services,
network softwarization is currently transforming telecommunications and
networking industry and is bringing several opportunities, while raising
new challenges, from both conceptual and operational perspectives. To
move ahead cognitive network softwarization, NetSoft 2021 will serve as
a forum to discuss the latest advances in network softwarization
technologies, AI-based software-defined networks, autonomic networking,
intent/policy-based network management, network slicing, and other
related research areas that are anticipated to radically transform
today’s networks. The need for further advances in these topics is
reflected in the overall theme of NetSoft 2021: “Accelerating Network
Softwarization in the Cognitive Age”.
NetSoft 2021 will feature technical paper presentations, keynotes,
tutorials, workshops, demos, and exhibitions from world-leading experts
representing service providers, vendors, research institutes, open
source projects, and academia.
