IEEE SDN Architecture and Applications 2014
1st IEEE WoWMoM Workshop on
Software Defined Networking Architecture and Applications  
Held in conjunction with IEEE WoWMoM 2014
June 16, 2014 - Sydney, Australia            
New:  Technical Program

 In recent years SDN (Software Defined Networking) has emerged as an exciting area of research  which is challenging the  current networking paradigm of designing and managing computer networks.  SDN has the potential to revolutionize not only the way networks are built but can lead to emergence of new applications that were not hitherto possible. This workshop is aimed at providing a platform for researchers and practitioners to share their learnings and latest research results in this emerging area and its novel applications.  We solicit  papers with focus on theory and empirical data that would demonstrate significant advancement in the state of the art and stimulate research in broad areas of SDN and its applications. Authors can consider submitting  papers  in following areas but are not limited to:
  • SDN Controller Architecture
  • Network Virtualization and Abstraction for SDN
  • SDN Applications for wireless, mobile and multimedia network
  • SDN Applications in Data Centers, Enterprise and Service Provider Networks
  • Advancement in South-bound APIs for network programming
  • Advancement in North-bound APIs for application programming.
  • Co-existence of SDN and traditional networks
  • Security in SDN networks
  • Performance Analysis of single and multi-controller architectures
  • Theoretical foundation of separation of control and data plane architecture
  • Tools for Management and Troubleshooting of SDN based networks
  • Application-aware network design using SDN
  • Virtualization of Wireless and Mobile network services to enable  programmability
  • Robust protocols for controller to network element and network element to controller communication in wireless/mobile environment

Instructions for Camera Ready Papers

Authors of accepted papers are required to prepare the camera-ready manuscript according to the instructions for the preparation of the camera-ready are available at the WoWMoM website with the following differences:
  •  Papers should not exceed 6 (six) pages in length;
  •  The submission should be completed by May 5, 2014.
SDN organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.

Initial Paper Submission Instructions
Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the IEEE template format.   Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. There will be no separate workshop registration, as one single registration will cover both conference and workshops participation. At least one author of each accepted paper is required and present his/her work at the workshop. We will be using EDAS for submitting and reviewing papers for this workshop.
