Topics/Call fo Papers

The 4th International Workshop on
Management of SDN and NFV Systems (ManSDN/NFV 2017)
November 26, 2017 in Tokyo,Japan
The fourth International Workshop on Management of SDN and
NFV Systems (ManSDN/NFV 2017) will be held in conjunction
with the International Conference on Network and Service
Management (CNSM 2017) in Tokyo, Japan, November 26-30,
2017. The workshop is endorsed by the IEEE Technical
Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM).
Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function
Virtualization (NFV) are two disruptive paradigms that are
shaping the future networking landscape. They bring the
promise of enabling flexible management solutions but they
also introduce new challenges to the area of network
management. Given their related nature, this workshop seeks
to bring together researchers and industry partners to
present and discuss interesting research results, ongoing
work and experiences concerning either or both of these
Authors are invited to submit papers that address the
paradigms of SDN or NFV in the network management domain.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the
- Design of architectural building blocks for managing
SDN and NFV systems
- SDN and NFV APIs and protocols
- Advances in measurement, management, security, accounting,
mobility, and other functions using SDN or NFV systems
- Virtualization of resources, services and functions in SDN
and NFV
- Management of telco cloud computing infrastructures
- Efficient deployment of Service Function Chains (SFCs)
- Management of federated SDN/NFV infrastructures
- Dynamic migration of network functions in NFV-based
- Efficient network and service monitoring for SDN or NFV
- Resource management for SDN or NFV-based systems
- Automated configurations and repair
- Integration of SDN and NFV solutions
- Distributed SDN/NFV control
- Abstractions for programmable network elements
- Policy management in SDN or NFV systems
- Support for bug free Software Defined Networks
- Computing and software as a network-centric service
- Information exchange between management layers, systems,
and components
- Integrated resource management of network and services
- Virtualization of radio network functions
- Results from techno-economic, legal and regulatory studies
driving the deployment of SDN and NFV technology
- Experience reports from management in experimental
- Transitioning existing networks to SDN
- Deployment of emerging network stacks with network
- Intent-based networking
- SDN/NFV management in 5G and wireless networks
Paper Submission:
Paper submissions must present original, unpublished
research or experiences. Only original papers not published
or submitted for publication elsewhere may be submitted.
Each submission must be written in English, accompanied by a
75 to 200 words abstract that clearly outlines the scope and
contributions of the paper. There is a length limitation of
6 pages (including title, abstract, all figures, tables, and
references) for regular workshop papers, and 4 pages for
short papers describing work in progress. Submissions must
be in IEEE 2-column style. Self-plagiarized papers will be
rejected without further review. The link to the submission
site is
Papers accepted for ManSDN/NFV 2017 will be published open
access on the CNSM conference web site (with IFIP copyright)
and in the IFIP Digital Library, and submitted to IEEE and
ACM for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and the ACM Digital
Library. IFIP and IEEE reserve the right to remove any paper
from the IFIP database and IEEE Xplore if the paper is not
presented at the workshop. An award will be presented to the
best paper at the workshop.
