The emphasis here is to present smart solutions that address the recent emerging trends in Softwae Defined Networking and actors in Technology transfer towards smart global village, and associated challenges to meet with underlying requirements. We are also welcoming the topics of mostly theoretical nature, provided they give a clear practical potential in applying the results of such work. Major topics of interest in WOSTech-ICFNDS’17 include but are not limited to the following:

Software Defined Networking

  • Intelligent standards, algorithms, protocols, and architectures
