The Symposium on SDN Research (SOSR) is the premiere venue for research 
publications on SDN, building on past years' successful SOSR and HotSDN (Hot 
Topics in Software Defined Networking) workshops. This year, SOSR will be 
co-located with the Open Networking Summit (ONS), providing greater opportunity 
for industry and academia to jointly explore and debate recent developments 
related to all aspects of SDN. 

Important Dates
        • Abstract registration:Monday October 28 (5pm US PST)
        • Paper submission: Friday November 4 (5pm US PST)
        • Notification: January 13
        • Symposium Dates: April 3-4 in Santa Clara, CA

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
        • Applications of SDN in home, wireless, cellular, enterprise, 
data-center, backbone, and transport networks
        • Applications of SDN to network management, monitoring, security, 
Internet of Things (IoT), content-centric networking, etc.
        • Virtualized network functions (e.g., firewalls, intrusion detection 
systems, load balancers, etc.) built or managed using software-defined networks
        • Virtualization of SDNs
        • White-box and bare-metal switching
        • Novel data-plane architectures for software defined networks
        • Programming languages, verification techniques, and testing 
techniques for SDN
        • New SDN control frameworks
        • Techniques for improving the security, reliability, performance, and 
scalability of SDNs
        • Experiences deploying SDN technology and applications in operational 
        • Strategies for the incremental deployment of SDN in existing networks
        • Distributed SDN control planes for better reliabilty, security, and 

In addition to traditional research papers, we seek papers that present:
        • The design and applications of useful SDN tools
        • Surveys of important SDN concepts, techniques, and standards
        • Technical overviews of larger research projects, production systems, 
and use cases
        • Open-source benchmark suites or measurement data for evaluating SDN
