SOSR 2016

SOSR 2016 Call for Papers

Software Defined Networking (SDN) refactors the relationship between network devices and the software that controls them. Opening up the interfaces to programming the network enables more flexible and predictable network control, and makes it easier to extend the network with new functionality. SDN is employed in a large and growing number of experimental and production settings spanning enterprise data centers, campus networks, telcos, clouds, and online service provider networks. A variety of new applications have been developed, including network virtualization, responsive traffic engineering, dynamic access control, and seamless mobility support.

The Symposium on SDN Research (SOSR) is the premiere venue for research publications on SDN, building on past years' successful SOSR and HotSDN (Hot Topics in Software Defined Networking) workshops. This year, SOSR will be co-located with the Open Networking Summit (ONS) and the USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI'16), providing greater opportunity for industry and academia to jointly explore and debate recent developments related to all aspects of SDN.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit both long (12-page) and short (6-page) papers. SDN has matured to the point that large complex systems have been built and have experienced broad deployment. We hope to encourage submission of more detailed systems and experience papers by accepting long papers to the conference.
