Hi Folks,

Apologies for cross-postings. Please see the CfP for IEEE Cloudnet 2021


10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2021)
November 8-10 , 2021, Virtual Conference



*** Scope and Topics of Interest ***

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. Emerging technologies, like Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
and Software Defined Network (SDN), are nowadays expected play significant
roles by improving the dynamicity and programmability of cloud networks,
and an ever-growing community is actively improving and evolving such
technologies, researching follow-up paradigms, and scouting novel
applications enabled by this ecosystem.

The conference topics include (but are not limited to):

Cloud network and resource management
- Data Center Network Optimization and Management
- Reliability of Data Center Network and Architecture
- Energy-Efficient Datacenters and Networks
- Cloud Traffic Characterization and Measurements
