IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking
3-5 October 2016 – Pisa, Italy

Call for Papers

Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient and reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication network and protocols, especially when datacenters are interconnected through the Internet. Although the “computing” aspects of Cloud technologies have been largely investigated, lower attention has been devoted to the “networking” aspects. The 2016 5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2016), part of the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, precisely addresses these aspects.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Cloud Traffic Characterization and Measurements

  • Cloud Traffic Engineering and Control-Plane Architectures

  • Cloud Federation and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

  • Internet Routing of Cloud data

  • Virtual Ethernet Switching, Data Center Bridging

  • Distributed Data Center Architectures and Services, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS

  • Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization

  • Intra-Cloud vs Inter-Cloud Management

  • Green Data Centers and Cloud Networking

  • Energy-Efficient Datacenters and Networks

  • Security, Privacy, and Confidentiality in Cloud Networking

  • Software Defined Networking

  • Network Function Virtualization

  • Fog/Edge Computing

  • Mobile Cloud Networking

  • Virtualization of Network Equipment

  • Storage Area Networks, Optical Interconnect, Fiber Channels

  • Multipath Routing

  • Congestion control

  • Data Flow Management and Load Balancing

  • Unified User and Machine Mobility Management

  • Content and Service Distribution

  • Big Data Management

Special Sessions:

  • SS1: EU Projects on Clouds

  • SS2: Cloud for Space

  • SS3: Cloud in Robotics and Cyber Physical Systems

  • SS4: Cloud for Defense

  • SS5: Cloud and Optical Networks
