Workshop Program Software-Driven Flexible and Agile Networking

2nd INFOCOM Workshop on Software-Driven Flexible and Agile Networking
Monday, 1 May 2017 ● 08:30 – 17:00 ● Room: Georgia 6
The Software-Driven Flexible and Agile Networking (SWFAN) workshop aims at bringing together researchers, engineers, and practitioners to discuss the latest advances on architectures, algorithms, abstractions, and technologies for fluidity, flexibility, and agility in software-based networks. SWFAN solicits submissions on: (i) the rapid and elastic provisioning of computing, storage, and network resources for NF deployment and scaling in virtualized infrastructures, (ii) the development of new models, protocols, algorithms, and abstractions for more flexible and agile network control, (iii) the specification and development of elementary and reusable primitives for flexible network processing, and (iv) new technologies for high-performance processing.
