Software Defined Networking is undoubtedly one of the chief trends in the
ICT area. In the past years we have seen all big players in the networking
arena starting to ride the SDN. Standardization work is actively ongoing in
the Open Networking Forum (ONF), the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
(e.g., I2RS, freshly formed Service Function Chaining (SFC) workgroup or
recent initiatives to form VNFPool), while the European Telecommunications
Standards Institute (ETSI) just released several group specifications on
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). On top of the several existing
open-source SDN controllers, OpenDaylight reached significant momentum last
year and arrived to its first official release in February 2014.


One goal of the workshop is to bring together industry and academia on the
topics of SDN; in particular the workshop will feature an "industry forum",
i.e., a session with presentations of key industrial players.






We are interested in both papers showing consolidated results and in
position papers bringing up innovative ideas. Topics for contributions
include, but are not limited to, the following:

-              Virtualization architectures

-              Forwarding abstractions, APIs, object models

-              Network Function Virtualization and SDN, network
virtualization techniques 

-              Optical extensions to OpenFlow, SDN

-              Wireless integration, characterization of wireless
interfaces, flows, handover support

-              Evolved packet core, LTE support for OpenFlow

-              New controller architectures, APIs and northbound interfaces

-              Interoperation of cloud architectures and SDN

-              New switch architectures supporting SDN

-              New networking paradigms like Information Centric Networks
(ICN) and relation to SDN

-              Security implications of SDN and security enhancements to
SDN, as well as new security services enabled by SDN

-              Carrier-grade SDN architectures and equipment

-              Practical experiments on SDN/Cloud/OpenFlow

-              Testbeds

-              Identification of use cases for SDN, SDN related business
models, strategic role of SDN in network evolution

-              Regulatory aspects around network virtualization

-              SDN frameworks and tools, SDN based equipment: controllers,
switches, integrated development environment, testing and debugging
