The 4th IEEE Conference on Network Functions Virtualization and Software Defined Networking (IEEE NFV-SDN 2018) will be held this year  in Verona, Italy on November 27-29, 2018. 

In addition to the latest NFV and SDN concepts and mechanisms, the 2018 IEEE NFV-SDN conference will focus on first operational results related to virtualized networks functions (VNFs) as well as designing, describing, orchestrating, and managing new applications made of VNFs which smarten networks and their usage.

We looking forward to see you in Verona.
