                  The 1st International Workshop on 
          Management of SDN and NFV Systems (ManSDN/NFV 2014)

             November 21, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The first  International Workshop on Management of SDN and NFV Systems
(ManSDN/NFV 2014) will be held in  conjunction with the  International 
Conference  on  Network and  Service Management  (CNSM 2014) in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, November 17-21, 2014. The workshop is endorsed by the
IEEE Technical Committee on Network Operations and  Management (CNOM).

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and  Network Function Virtualization
(NFV) are  two  disruptive  paradigms  that  are  shaping  the  future
networking landscape.  They bring the  promise  of  enabling  flexible
management solutions but  they also  introduce new  challenges  to the
area of network management.  Given their related nature, this workshop
seeks to bring together researchers and industry partners  to  present
and discuss interesting research results, ongoing work and experiences
concerning either or both of these paradigms.

Authors are invited to submit papers that address the paradigms of SDN
or NFV in the network management  domain.  Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to, the following:

- Design  of  architectural  building  blocks  for managing SDN and NFV 
- SDN and NFV APIs and protocols
- Advances in measurement, management, security,  accounting, mobility,
  and other functions using SDN or NFV systems
- Virtualization of resources, services and functions in SDN and NFV
- Management of telco cloud computing infrastructures
- Efficient deployment of Service Function Chains (SFCs)
- Management of federated SDN/NFV infrastructures 
- Dynamic migration of network functions in NFV-based systems
- Efficient network and service monitoring for SDN or NFV
- Resource management for SDN or NFV-based systems
- Automated configurations and repair
- Integration of SDN and NFV solutions
- Distributed SDN/NFV control
- Abstractions for programmable network elements
- Computing and software as a network-centric service
- Information exchange between management layers, systems, and
- Integrated resource management of network and services
- Virtualization of radio network functions
- Policy management in SDN or NFV systems
- Support for bug free Software Defined Networks
- Results from techno-economic,  legal and  regulatory  studies driving
  the deployment of SDN and NFV technology
- Experience reports from management in experimental testbeds
- Transitioning existing networks to SDN

Paper Submission:

Paper  submissions  must  present  original,  unpublished  research  or 
experiences.  Only  original  papers  not  published  or  submitted for 
publication elsewhere may be submitted. Each submission must be written
in English,  accompanied  by  a  75 to 200 words abstract  that clearly 
outlines  the  scope and contributions of the paper.  There is a length 
limitation of  6 pages (including title, abstract, all figures, tables, 
and  references) for  regular workshop  papers,  and 4  pages for short 
papers  describing  work in  progress.  Submissions  must be in IEEE 2-
column style.  Self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further 
review. Authors should submit their papers via EDAS:


Papers accepted for ManSDN/NFV 2014 will  be included in the conference
proceedings,  IEEE Xplore,  IFIP  database and EI Index.  IFIP and IEEE 
reserve the right to  remove any  paper from the IFIP database and IEEE 
Xplore if the paper is  not  presented at the workshop.  Awards will be 
presented  to the best paper and  to  the  best  student paper  at  the
