Call for Book Chapters



Book Title


Big-Data and Software Defined Networks


Book Editors


Associate Professor Javid Taheri, Karlstad University, Sweden


Book Series and Publisher


The book is one of the 12 to be written/edited for "IET Book Series on Big
Data" (Editor in Chief Prof. Albert Y. Zomaya).


Theme


The increase of processing power is undoubtedly among the most prominent
technological achievements of the 21st century. Being able to process data
on higher rates has opened many doors for both the scientific and industrial
communities to explore new areas. Big-Data and SDN (Software Defined
Networks) are among the methods and technologies that have directly
contributed to such extraordinary achievements.

Big-Data and SDN started for different reasons, and consequently advanced
science and industry from different angles. Their collision is however
imminent since both face ever growing Cloud Data Centres (CDCs). Big-Data
Analytics has entered CDCs to harvest their massive computing powers and
deduct information that was never reachable by conventional methods. SDN
entered this field to help CDCs run their services more efficiently.

This book aims to investigate areas where Big-Data and SDN could help each
other in delivering more efficient services. SDN can help Big-Data
applications to overcome one of their major challenges: message passing
among cooperative nodes. Through proper bandwidth allocation and
prioritization, critical surges of Big-Data flows can be better handled to
effectively reduce their impacts on CDCs. Big-Data could also help SDN
controller to better analyse its collected network information and make more
efficient decisions about the allocation of resources to different network
flows.

This book is sectioned into three parts:

*	The first part (Introduction) serves as an introductory section,
providing crucial information about Big-Data and SDN as well as their
current state-of-the-art advancements and architectures. It also highlights
general open issues in these vibrant fields.
*	The second part (How SDN Helps Big-Data) is focused on several ways
that SDN helps Big-Data applications run more efficiently. This section is
further split into several chapters, each focusing on how SDN helps a
specific "V" in the Big-Data terminology.
*	The third section (How Big-Data Helps SDN) is focused on several
Big-Data Analytics that help SDN make better resource allocation decisions.
Chapters in this section reveal current approaches in which large amount of
collected network data are process to run smoother networks in large CDCs.

Conclusion/Wrap up from the Book Editor (Javid Taheri)


Other Recommended Topics


Authors can also propose new chapters should they could connect it to both
Big-Data Analytics and SDN.


Review process


Authors will submit 1-2 page chapter proposal by sending email to the main
editor (Javid Taheri <javid.taheri@kau.se <mailto:javid.taheri@kau.se> >).
The editors will review the chapter proposal and invite selected authors to
submit a full version of their proposed book chapter.

The book is expected to have

*	a total number of 400-450 printed pages (based on approximately 550
words per page with a 20% allowance for figures and tables), and
*	at least 18 invited chapters (20-25 pages each).
