IEEE NetSoft 2015 at UCL on 13-17 April 2015

Software-Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Software-Defined Clouds could be seen as different expressions of an overall transformation trend, which is deeply impacting and bridging Telecom and IT industries. This trend is also transforming several other Industries, in using"softwarization" to optimize costs and processes and in bringing new values in infrastructures. In particular, SDN, NFV and network programmability are creating the conditions to reinvent network and cloud architectures, accelerate service deployment and facilitate infrastructure management. Accordingly, the theme ofNetSoft 2015 is "Software-Defined Infrastructures (SDI) for Networks, Clouds and Services"http://sites.ieee.org/netsoft/
