20th ITC Specialist Seminar on
NETWORK VIRTUALIZATION – Concepts and Performance Aspects

18.-20. Mai 2009
Swiss-Belhotel Golden Sand Resort, Hoi An, Viet Nam

Network virtualization is the technology that allows the simultaneous  
operation of multiple logical networks (also known as overlays) on a  
single physical platform. Network virtualization permits distributed  
participants to create almost instantly their own network with  
application-specific naming, routing, and resource management  
mechanisms. For instance, server virtualization enables users to use  
parts of a computing center as their own personal computer. Recently,  
network virtualization received tremendous attention since it is  
expected to be one of the major paradigms for the future Internet as  
proposed by numerous international initiatives on future networks,  
e.g. PlanetLab (USA, International), GENI (USA), AKARI (JAPAN),  
OneLab2 (Europe), and G-Lab (Germany).

A major objective of this ITC Specialist Seminar is to early identify  
future performance issues and to provide methodologies and mechanisms  
to address the various  performance problems in network  
virtualization. The seminar is intended as a forum for scientists and  
engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their  
latest experiences and research results. It will address techniques,  
architectures, performance models, and performance engineering methods  
leading to real world network virtualization solutions that provide  
users with efficient techniques for creating and operating their own  
high performance virtual network.

Topics of interest are amongst others, but not limited to:
o Performance issues of virtualization techniques on routers and end  
o Performance issues of bandwidth and resource virtualization techniques
o Performance issues of overlays for future network architectures
o Performance of virtualized transport mechanisms
o Performance of virtualized services and virtualized applications
o Virtual test labs and network federation

The organizers of the seminar are proud to announce the following  
keynote and invited speakes:

o Keynote: Prof. H. Kobayashi (Sherman Fairchild University Professor  
Erimitus of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and former  
Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS),  
Princeton University, USA)
o Invited Talk: Prof. A. Nakao (Head of the Network Virtualization  
Laboratory of NICT, Japan and Associate Professor at the Graduate  
School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, The University of  

Submission deadline: December 15, 2008
Acceptance notification: January 31, 2008
Camera ready: February 20, 2008
