FIU and Internet2 are hosting a multi-day workshop that will bring together network, software, and data management experts to discuss International OpenFlow/SDN Testbeds.
About the Workshop
The goal of the workshop is to initiate an active dialogue among those supporting and planning OpenFlow/SDN testbeds. Possible outcomes include developing best practices for specific challenge areas; expanding community knowledge base (through shared experiences and brainstorming on challenges and possible solutions); and establishing longer-term relationship building in motion. The workshop also hopes to provide broad, concrete, technical, immediately useful tools, and resources for improved testbed development and operations.
The workshop will include a combination of invited speakers and community-proposed presentations in a format designed to encourage lively, interactive discussions with the goal of developing a set of tangible next steps for sharing community knowledge, exploring cross-network domain policy shifts to enable expanded testbed activities, and expanding SDN testbed deployments. The workshop hopes to include breakout sessions as well as many opportunities for professional networking.
