3rd EAI International Conference on Programmable and Virtualized Networks (PROGNETS)
Converged Networks in the Age of 5G
Dublin, Ireland - January 19-20, 2017 


Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) is emerging as a technology capable bringing significant cost savings to network operators by allowing network functions to be turned into software and run over general purpose computing and networking infrastructures. In parallel Software Defined Networking (SDN) is enabling flexible, scalable, highly configurable, and reliable networks by leveraging on programmable data-planes and on a logically centralized control plane. Together SDN and NFV are bringing a dramatic wave of innovation in the wired and in the wireless networking domains raising interested among the academic and the industrial communities alike. The fifth generation mobile network is set to be one of the business domain to benefit the most from SDN and NFV. Customer demand is in fact ever evolving and new technologies are emerging on a daily basis. NFV can effectively support these new challenges by implementing 5G network function in software. This conference aims at bringing t
 ogether research and industry partners to present and discuss preliminary research results, ongoing work and experiences on the topic of software based, programmable converged networks and services.


Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into or are related to one or multiple topic areas:

	⁃	End-to-end SDN orchestration of heterogeneous infrastructure
	⁃	SDN and NFV for fixed/mobile convergence
	⁃	Virtualisation and opening of the access network
	⁃	Cognitive and autonomic management & orchestration 
	⁃	Programming abstractions for converged networks (optical and mobile)
	⁃	Management of cloud, software defined infrastructure, and NFV
	⁃	End-to-end mobile software networks architecture
	⁃	Analytics and big data approaches for managing networks and services
	⁃	Cloud computing and network virtualization technologies for RAN, backhaul and core
	⁃	NFV architectures for 5G networks
	⁃	Dynamic service placement and management
	⁃	QoS and QoE new metrics in software defined 5G networks
	⁃	Recursive mobile network architectures
	⁃	Advances in mobile network management and orchestration
	⁃	Fronthaul and backhaul integration
	⁃	Spectrum sharing
	⁃	Evaluation, testbeds and management
	⁃	Open Source tools for 5G Prototyping
	⁃	Emerging 5G standards
	⁃	Economic drivers for the deployment of 5G Networks technologies
	⁃	Feedback on 5G experimental testbed
	⁃	M2M/IoT architectures in 5G
	⁃	Autonomous and self-backhauling 


Paper submissions must present original, unpublished research or experiences. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. There is a length limitation of 8 pages (including title, abstract, all figures, tables, and references) for regular conference papers, and 4 pages for short papers describing work in progress. EAI publishes Proceedings of all its events with Springer LNICST. Proceedings are also included in EUDL (EAI open access digital library). Additionally, selected papers will be considered to be included in one of EAI Transactions.
