Special Issue on Advances in Path Computation Element
Optical Switching and Networking (OSN), Elsevier


Full article submission: December 31st, 2014

Aim and scope

 The Path Computation Element (PCE) was originally designed as the de-facto solution for constraint-based path computation across multiple domain as well as multiple layer networks. However, aligned to the novel concepts linked to virtualization and functions decoupling, the PCE is becoming an important piece of the Software Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm and presents the most relevant architectures. Open Source Industry initiatives such asOpenDaylight include the PCE within its component list.

The inherent capacity embedded in the PCE concept to outsource network functionalities to external network devices is paving the way to extend the main PCE concept to different network scenarios, ranging from traditional telecom networks to new smart paradigms such as sensor networks, Internet of Things or Intelligent Transport Systems. Indeed, the role of PCE has widened from a mere path computation function to an entity able to control and optimize any kind of network. In fact, the IETF PCE is evolving into a powerful and flexible platform that can be applied to a variety of technology areas

This special issue aims at collecting advances related to the use of  path computation element in different network environments.  Research articles are solicited in (but not limited to) the following topics:

  1) Use of path computation in the context of:

  *   Optical Transport Networks
  *   Flexi-grid networks
  *   Multi-domain networks
  *   Software Defined Networks (ABNO architecture)
  *   Data-centers
  *   Interconnection of Data Centers
  *   Sensor networks
  *   Internet of Things
  *   Novel Internet Architectures and innovative network paradigms

2) Topics such as

  *   Algorithms for path computation
  *   Convergence of PCE and SDN
  *   Stateful PCE
  *   Protocol Extensions
  *   PCE Software architecture and Open-Source Efforts
  *   Traffic Engineering Database Modeling,
  *   Optical transport Network abstraction
  *   Packet Optical Convergence and Integration
  *   Standardization
  *   Role of PCE in Software Defined Optical Transport Networks.
  *   PCE applicability to novel Internet architectures

Submission instructions:
  All submissions must be original work not previously published or currently under review by any other journal.  Partial overlap with previously published conference or workshop papers is acceptable, but must be disclosed at the time of submission.  Submission, review, and decision process will use the usual Elsevier OSN portal, accessible through http://ees.elsevier.com/osn/admin/default.asp. During submission, please make sure to select 'SI: Path Computation Element ' when you reach the "Article Type" step. More details about the journal in general, and author guidelines, can be found from http://ees.elsevier.com/osn/
