Call for Demo Papers

The 5th IEEE conference on Network Softwarization (NetSoft 2019) invites
demonstration proposals on research prototypes regarding softwarized
networks and 5G systems. As a high-profile, leading edge forum for
researchers and engineers in the field of networking software, Software
Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and 5G,
NetSoft 2019 offers a unique opportunity to demonstrate innovative and
leading-edge networking software prototypes, engage with highly-skilled
technical audience, and discuss emerging technologies with key thought

Demonstrations showcasing working systems, innovative applications, ground
breaking ideas, and novel concepts related to networking software are
welcome. We are seeking the following types of contributions without
implying any order of preference:

¡ñ        Demonstrations on topics related to NetSoft 2019.

¡ñ        Demonstrations from industrial and academia researchers.

¡ñ        Demonstrations from open source communities.

¡ñ        Demonstrations from 5G/NFV/SDN testbeds and prototypes.

¡ñ        Demonstrations from authors whose contributions have been accepted
in the main conference and workshops.


*** Demo Submission ***

Prospective contributors are expected to turn in a demo proposal in the form
of a 3-page paper in IEEE conference double-column format, preferably
incorporating a demo system architecture illustration. Demo papers will be
peer-reviewed and accepted demo papers will be included in the electronic
conference/workshop proceedings bundle provided to NetSoft 2019 attendees
and will be subsequently submitted to IEEE Xplore. The paper should
incorporate the following information:

¡ñ        Title

¡ñ        Author¡¯s names and affiliation

¡ñ        Abstract

¡ñ        Description

¡ñ        Key networking concepts involved, what will be demonstrated, and
distinguishing aspects with respect to previous related work

¡ñ        Prototype illustrations

¡ñ        Highlights of the innovation, with a clear description of novel
ideas in Networking Software

¡ñ        A crisp list of individual items that will be demonstrated

¡ñ        Relevant references, in particular if the demo is related to a
paper being accepted in the main conference or a workshop

Only PDF files will be accepted. Demonstration proposal papers should be
electronically submitted through EDAS:


The demo proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee and will be
approved based on availability of demo space as well as on the following

*	Adherence to NetSoft scope
*	Significance of the research contribution
*	Potential impact on the area
*	Quality of the proposed implementation
*	Presentation quality

The proposal may be complemented with additional documents like PowerPoint
slides that clarify the demonstration, as well as the list of technical
requirements for the demonstration (power outlet, space, etc.). These
additional documents should be sent directly to the Demo Co-Chairs via

At least one author of each accepted demo proposal is required to register
for the NetSoft 2019 main conference and present the demo at the scheduled
demo session(s).
