The 2016 IEEE NFV-SDN conference, which will take place in Silicon Valley, invites proposals for 2.5 hour, half-day, or one full-day of tutorials to be held on Nov 7, 2016, prior to the main technical program. Tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives: Introduce students and newcomers to major topics of NFV and SDN research; Provide instruction on es-tablished practices and methodologies; Survey a mature area of NFV and SDN research and/or practice; Motivate and explain an NFV and SDN topic of emerging importance; Introduce expert non-specialists to an NFV and SDN research area.
The topics considered but not limited to, include:
• Applications using NFV & SDN technologies
• NFV and SDN Infrastructure
• Network & resource slicing
• Bridging the NFV and SDN control plane
• Application deployment: VM vs. container
• High performance switching using OVS and OVN
• Virtualization infrastructure management platforms
• Benchmarking and performance testing
• VNF Lifecycle management
• NFV and/or SDN related information modelling, data modelling
• Open source (e.g. OpenStack, ODL, ONOS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, Atrium, OpenAirInterface)
