10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2021)
November 8-10, 2021, Virtual Conference



*** Scope and Topics of Interest ***

Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost‐efficient and reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication network and protocols, especially when datacenters are interconnected through the Internet. Emerging technologies, like Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN), are nowadays expected play significant roles by improving the dynamicity and programmability of cloud networks, and an ever-growing community is actively improving and evolving such technologies, researching follow-up paradigms, and scouting novel applications enabled by this ecosystem.

The conference topics include (but are not limited to):  

Cloud network and resource management
- Data Center Network Optimization and Management
