1st IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization

Bridging Networking with IT

The IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2015) will be held April 13-17, 2015 in London, U.K. at the Cruciform Building of University College London (UCL).

NetSoft 2015 will be the first of a series of annual events established as part of the IEEE Software-Defined Networks initiative of the IEEE Future Directions Committee to build an IEEE-wide community in this area across multiple IEEE societies and councils (http://sdn.ieee.org/about.html). Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Software-Defined Clouds could be seen as different expressions of an overall transformation trend, which is deeply impacting and Telecom and IT industries. This trend is also transforming several other Industries, in using “softwarization” to optimize costs and processes and in bringing new values in infrastructures. In particular, SDN, NFV and network programmability are creating the conditions to reinvent network and cloud architectures, accelerate service deployment and facilitate infrastructure management. Accordingly, the theme of NetSoft 2015 is “Software-Defined Infrastructures for Networks, Clouds and Services”. NetSoft is intended to serve as the flagship IEEE forum for technical exchange on software-defined infrastructures and services.
