HotSDN 2013 - ACM SIGCOMM Workshop on Hot Topics in Software Defined Networking (HotSDN)

Topics/Call fo Papers

Software defined networking (SDN) refactors the relationship between network devices and the software that controls them. Opening up the interfaces to programming network hardware enables more flexible and predictable network control, and makes it easier to extend the network with new functionality. In recent years, a number of vendors have introduced development kits for programming their devices, and several commercial switches now support the OpenFlow standard. Researchers have proposed new applications that execute on top of a software defined network, including dynamic access control, server load balancing, energy-efficient networking, seamless client mobility, and virtual-machine migration. And deployments of software defined networks have appeared in experimental and production environments.
But despite the recent progress in this area, many important research questions remain: How do we design switches and programming interfaces that offer greater flexibility without compromising performance? How do we design software platforms for managing software defined networks? How do we design new applications that capitalize on the programmability of the network? How do we lower the barrier to creating, testing, and evaluating new applications? How do we transition existing networks? How can a software defined network interoperate with existing protocols and devices?
The goal of the HotSDN workshop is to explore recent research and developments related to software defined networks, to encourage broad interaction between industry and academia, and to help build a wider community to explore and realize the potential of software defined networks.
We encourage submission of both position papers and work-in-progress papers on software defined networking. We solicit previously unpublished work on topics including, but not limited to the following:
Applications of software defined networking to home, wireless, cellular, enterprise, data-center, and backbone networks
Applications of software defined networking to network management, monitoring, security, etc.
Virtual appliances (e.g., firewalls, intrusion detection systems, load balancers, etc.) built using software-defined networks
Virtualization in software defined networks
Switch designs for software defined networks
Application programming interfaces for software defined networks
Control and management software for software defined networks
Programming languages, verification techniques, and tools for software defined networks
Performance evaluation of switches and controllers for software defined networks
Experiences deploying software defined networking technology and applications in operational networks
Hybrid software defined networking approaches
Transitioning existing networks to software defined networking
Placement and factoring of software defined networking control logic
Distributed systems abstractions for managing switches and controllers in software defined networks
