Call for Papers
The Third International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN in conjunction with the 3rd IEEE NFV-SDN conference, 6-8 November, Berlin, Germany
Workshop website: http://www.sn-2017.info/
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) have changed the networking industry dramatically. NFV virtualizes network services by utilizing virtualization technologies to reduce the dependency on underlying hardware. NFV provides many benefits such as faster service enablement, ease of resource management and lower OPEX and CAPEX. SDN separates the control functions from the underlying physical network by decoupling the control and data planes. SDN provides many benefits such as reduced costs, ease of deployment and management, better scalability, availability, flexibility and fine-grain control of traffic and security. Like traditional networks, they are subject to various security threats and attacks. In this workshop, we invite high-quality submissions in the areas of NFV and SDN security and other related areas. Submitted papers should highlight methods and approaches that can be used to analyse the security risks and requirements, threats and techniques related to NFV and SDN and to provide novel methods and approaches to assure security in NFV and SDN.

Topics of interest
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

·         Security, reliability and privacy through SDN and NFV in 5G networks

·         Management and orchestration of NFV and SDN elements for security

·         Secure design of NFV and SDN solutions, security enablers

·         Security threats and vulnerabilities introduced by NFV and SDN technologies

·         Threat detection and mitigation through SDN and NFV

The workshop deadlines:

·         Paper Submission: June 30, 2017

·         Notification of Acceptance: July 15, 2017

·         Camera Ready Submission: September 15, 2017

Please use EDAS to upload your submission at http://edas.info/N23798. The manuscripts must be prepared in English, following IEEE two‐column Manuscript Templates (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html) for Conference Proceedings with a maximum length of six (6) printed pages for full papers and up to four (4) pages for short papers (work in progress), including figures. All papers need to be submitted in PDF format via EDAS<http://edas.info/N23798>. All submitted papers will be peer‐reviewed. To be published in the Workshop Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register and present the paper at the workshop. The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Explore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications Society will take action against any author who engages in either practice.
