Call For Papers

Dear colleagues,

this year we are organizing the first Special Session on Cloud Benchmarking
at CloudNet 2016, which will be held in Pisa, Italy, from 3 to 6 October 2016.
This Special Session invites original research papers specifically focused on
performance evaluation of the networking side of Cloud infrastructures and
applications. We are particularly interested in novel papers dealing also
with controversial research problems and able to stimulate interesting

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Cloud traffic characterisation and measurements.
- Workload generation for cloud and data centre applications
- Network performance evaluation on geo-distributed cloud applications
- Benchmarking of software-based middleboxes
- Techniques for end to end latency mitigation in cloud applications.

If you have interesting research papers on these topics, we strongly encourage
you to submit them here. The direct edas link for submission is:

Paper submission deadline is on May 15, 2016!

You can find more information on CloudNet below.
Please note that the edas submission link is different for the Special Session.

We look forward to seeing you in Pisa,
the Special Session Organizers,
Alessio Botta and Felix Cuadrado


IEEE CloudNet 2016

Pisa, Italy
October 3-6, 2016

Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient
reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic
location of service facilities and the virtualization of hardware and
elements are stressing the communication network and protocols, especially

when datacenters are interconnected through the Internet. Although the
"computing" aspects of Cloud technologies have been largely investigated,
lower attention has been devoted to the "networking" aspects. The 2016
5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet
part of the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, precisely addresses these

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):
- Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization
- Distributed Data Center Architectures and Services, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
- Energy-Efficient Datacenters and Networks
- Big Data Management
- Internet Routing of Cloud data
- Virtual Ethernet Switching, Data Center Bridging
- Cloud Traffic Characterization and Measurements
- Intra-Cloud vs Inter-Cloud Management
- Cloud Traffic Engineering and Control-Plane Architectures
- Green Data Centers and Cloud Networking
- Security, Privacy, and Confidentiality in Cloud Networking
- Virtualization of Network Equipment
- Unified User and Machine Mobility Management
- Data Flow Management and Load Balancing
- Multipath Routing
- Congestion control
- Software Defined Networking
- Network Function Virtualization
- Fog/Edge Computing
- Mobile Cloud Networking
- Cloud Federation and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
- Storage Area Networks, Optical Interconnect, Fiber Channels
- Content and Service Distribution

Submission guideline:
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers to
CloudNet 2016. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum

paper length of six (6) printed pages (minimum 10-point font), following
the IEEE 2-column conference paper format.

Important Dates:
Paper submission: May 15, 2016
Acceptance notification: July 15, 2016
Camera-ready paper: August 1, 2016
