Network management currently undergoes changes towards more flexible
network management. This trend is stimulated by Network Virtualization
and Software Defined Networks (SDN) that emerged in recent years.
These technologies allow networks to be run in a more flexible and
cost efficient manner, e.g., by increasing network resource
utilization and by decreasing operational costs. As an emerging topic,
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) allows even further flexibility
by migrating network functions (e.g., DHCP, PPPoE) from dedicated
hardware to virtual machines running on commodity hardware.
Virtualized network functions are appealing to network operators since
they can be migrated and flexibly adapted to current demands.

The newly achieved flexibility in network management, particularly for
NFV, opens a set of currently unresolved key questions concerning
i) reliability, ii) service orchestration iii) function placement, and
iv) performance. How to operate virtualized network functions in a
reliable manner by providing redundancy and load balancing? Can
virtualized network functions provide performance figures required for
network operations and how can such virtualized services be
benchmarked and compared? Where should network functions be placed to
optimize the network subject to different design criteria? How can
services be orchestrated? How can network monitoring be adapted to
such flexible networks? This workshop aims at addressing these and
similar questions in virtualized networks.

Topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:

- SDN/NFV architectures, applications, and use cases
- Network monitoring and QoE
- Reliability of virtualized network functions
- SDN/NFV-based service orchestration
- SDN/NFV-based network deployment and management
- Business considerations and economic aspects
- SDN/NFV security
- Theoretical foundations of SDN/NFV networks
- Network Operating Systems and Languages
- SDN in Mobile and Wireless Networks
- Network Service Chaining
