The Sixth International Conference on Software Defined Systems (SDS-2019)**

Rome, Italy. June 10-13, 2019


(Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Italy Section)

_Call for Papers:_

Next generation cloud systems will require a paradigm shift in how they 
are constructed and managed. Conventional control and management 
platforms are facing considerable challenges regarding flexibility, 
dependability and security that next generation systems will require. 
The cloud computing paradigm has gone part of the way towards 
alleviating some of the problems associated with resource allocation, 
utilization and managements (e.g., via elasticity). However, many of the 
elements of a well-designed cloud environment remain “stiff” and hard to 
modify and adapt in an integrated fashion. This includes underlying 
networking topologies, many aspects of the user control over IaaS, PaaS 
or SaaS layers when such is needed, construction of XaaS services, 
provenance and meta-data collection, and so on. In many situations the 
problem may be because service abstraction is inadequate. Software 
Defined Systems (SDS) are systems that have added software components 
which help abstract actual IT equipment and other layers. One classical 
example, of course, are hypervisors. Such separation provides a great 
opportunity for system administrators to more easily construct and 
managing their systems through flexible software layers.

Software Defined Systems include Software Defined Networking (SDN), 
Software Defined Storage, Software Defined Servers (Virtualization), 
Software Defined Datacenters (SDD), Software Defined Security (SDSec), 
and ultimately Software Defined Clouds (SDCloud) to name a few 
possibilities. Individual solutions and seamless integration of these 
abstractions remains in many respects a challenge. After the high 
success of the previous editions (SDS'2014, SDS'2015, SDS'2016, SDS'2017 
and SDS'2018), The sixth International conference on Software Defined 
Systems 2019 (SDS'2019) will continue to be a forum for scientists, 
researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest 
research results, ideas, and developments in the area of software 
defined systems – both components and their integration - and by 
implication advancement of next generation clouds.

SDS 2019 aims to investigate the opportunities and in all aspects of 
Software Defined Systems. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions 
that help mitigating SDS challenges. That is, the objective of SDS 2019 
is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to 
discuss and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all 
aspects of Software Defined Systems.

Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in 
all major areas, which include, but not limited to:

* Software Defined Systems support for Cloud Computing.
* Software Defined Networking (SDN).
* SDN concepts, architecture, and APIs.
* Network Virtualization
* SDN and OpenFlow protocol
* Software Defined Radio
* Cognitive Radio Networks.
* Access Control models in SDN.
* Software Defined Storage.
* Storage Automation and Abstraction.
* Policy-driven storage provisioning.
* Software Defined Servers and Virtualization.
* Software Defined Datacenters.
* Software Defined Security o Security policies automation.
* Self-management systems.
* Autonomic Computing techniques.
* Real-time load prediction model to optimize the user satisfaction.
* Software Defined Systems Scalability.
* Software Defined Systems optimization.
* Software tools and frameworks to support SDS.
* Software Defined Systems challenges and opportunities
* Software Defined Systems surveys.
* Social engineering, insider threats system for SDS.
* Incident Handling and Penetration Testing with SDS.
* Software Defined Systems support if IoT.
* Security protocols in SDS.
* Security and privacy of mobile SDS based cloud computing
* Service-oriented architectures, service portability andP2P
* Network virtualization and cloud-based radio access networks


Papers selected for presentation will appear in the SDS Proceedings, 
which will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Papers must be 8 
pages in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column 
format, single space, A4 format. All papers should be in PDF format, and 
submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper must not 
exceed the stated length (including all figures, tables and references).

Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not 
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not 
following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also 
submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not 
appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact 
the Program Chair for further information or clarification.

_Important Dates:_

Submission Date: 15 January 2019
Notification to Authors: 1 April 2019
Camera Ready Submission: 20 April 2019
