IEEE Conference on Network Softwarization
24-28 June 2019 // Paris, France


Bienvenue en France!

We are very pleased to welcome you to the 5th IEEE International Conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2019) that will be held on June 24-28, 2019 in the marvelous City of Light: Paris, France.

This fifth edition of the NetSoft conference will dig deeper into techniques, components, systems and architectures that will shape the future of automated networking. From the dynamic exposure and negotiation of connectivity service parameters to service fulfillment and assurance mechanisms, the promises of automation to foster the delivery and facilitate the design and the operation of complex, programmable, multi-service networking architectures need to be kept beyond the currently nurturing specification and development efforts. These objectives are made possible through the continuous evolution of software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), cloud networking and prolonged to edge and access networks.

NetSoft 2019 will thus be the opportunity to sense the most advanced developments in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and companion algorithms, self-driving and autonomic networking, policy-based network management, dynamic network slice provisioning, among other promising research areas for the sake of robust, reliable, softwarized networks.

Automation is for real!

And this is duly reflected in the theme of NetSoft 2019: Unleashing the Power of Network Softwarization.

NetSoft 2019 will provide many opportunities for each of you to contribute in the technical program which will feature keynotes, panels, technical sessions and demo sessions. I addition the main program will be complemented with focused workshops on related topics and tutorials to keep up with the latest developments on network softwarization.

On behalf of the NetSoft 2019 Organization Committee, we invite you to share a wonderful time for exploring, discovering and sharing with the top-class researchers of the world. Not to forget some time for sightseeing, of course.
