Conference Call for Papers

Over the years, software has become the core value provider in the telecommunications industry. Boosted by scientific breakthroughs, continuous innovation and stringent requirements for new services, network softwarization is currently transforming telecommunications and networking industry and is bringing several opportunities, while raising new challenges, from both conceptual and operational perspectives. To move ahead cognitive network softwarization, NetSoft 2021 will serve as a forum to discuss the latest advances in network softwarization technologies, AI-based software-defined networks, autonomic networking, intent/policy-based network management, network slicing, and other related research areas that are anticipated to radically transform today’s networks. The need for further advances in these topics is reflected in the overall theme of NetSoft 2021: “Accelerating Network Softwarization in the Cognitive Age”.

NetSoft 2021 will feature technical paper presentations, keynotes, tutorials, workshops, demos, and exhibitions from world-leading experts representing service providers, vendors, research institutes, open source projects, and academia.
