April 15 @ 8:00 - April 18 @ 17:00

5G-Transformer organises a workshop on Control Management of network slices @ IEEE WCNC’18  (15-18 April 2018, Barcelona, Spain) and calls for papers



-Architectures/Protocols/API specifications to allocate verticals/networks on top of single and/or multi-domain mobile transport networks
-Business mechanisms and economic framework for network slicing
-Scalable and secure MANO-based deployments models
-Multi-domain service and resource federation
-Network/Vertical service descriptors
-Virtualization in multi-domain environments
-Integration of network and IT resources
-Vertical/network slice isolation (security threats and performance isolation)
-Inter-slice communication (security threats and control mechanisms)
-Virtualization/containerization of vertical/network functions/slices/microservices
-Monitoring of vertical/network functions/slices/microservices
-Flexible control/data plane splits and fronthaul splits
-Runtime allocation of resources to vertical/network functions/slices/microservices
