Re: CFP: 20th ITC Specialist Seminar on Network Virtualization, 18-20 Mai 2009, Hoi An, Viet Nam

20th ITC Specialist Seminar on
NETWORK VIRTUALIZATION – Concepts and Performance Aspects


18.-20. Mai 2009
Swiss-Belhotel Golden Sand Resort, Hoi An, Viet Nam

Network virtualization is the technology that allows the simultaneous
operation of multiple logical networks (also known as overlays) on a
single physical platform. Network virtualization permits distributed
participants to create almost instantly their own network with
application-specific naming, routing, and resource management mechanisms.
For instance, server virtualization enables users to use parts of a
computing center as their own personal computer. Recently, network
virtualization received tremendous attention since it is expected to be
one of the major paradigms for the future Internet as proposed by numerous
international initiatives on future networks, e.g. PlanetLab (USA,
International), GENI (USA), AKARI (JAPAN), OneLab2 (Europe), and G-Lab

A major objective of this ITC Specialist Seminar is to early identify
future performance issues and to provide methodologies and mechanisms to
address the various  performance problems in network virtualization. The
seminar is intended as a forum for scientists and engineers in academia
and industry to exchange and discuss their latest experiences and research
results. It will address techniques, architectures, performance models,
and performance engineering methods leading to real world network
virtualization solutions that provide users with efficient techniques for
creating and operating their own high performance virtual network.

Topics of interest are amongst others, but not limited to:
o Performance issues of virtualization techniques on routers and end hosts
o Performance issues of bandwidth and resource virtualization techniques
o Performance issues of overlays for future network architectures
o Performance of virtualized transport mechanisms
o Performance of virtualized services and virtualized applications
o Virtual test labs and network federation

The organizers of the seminar are proud to announce the following keynote
and invited speakes:

o Keynote: Prof. H. Kobayashi (Sherman Fairchild University Professor
Erimitus of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and former Dean of
the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), Princeton
University, USA)
o Invited Talk: Prof. A. Nakao (Head of the Network Virtualization
Laboratory of NICT, Japan and Associate Professor at the Graduate School
of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, The University of Tokyo)

Submission deadline: December 15, 2008
Acceptance notification: January 31, 2008
Camera ready: February 20, 2008

All papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. In addition,
selected papers will be invited for being published as an extended version
in a special issue on "Network Virtualization" of the International
Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems  (IJCNDS,
