  •     Build a community effort to explore and realize the potential of SDN.

Presenters are encouraged to submit a two-page extended abstract describing innovative SDN work. An ideal submission would describe a problem or idea of key practical importance to SDN and present initial results. Submissions describing operational experiences of deploying SDN are encouraged. Early stage work is of particular interest, however submissions summarizing published results are also welcome.
