IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking
25-27 September 2017 – Prague, Czech Republic


Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient and reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication network and protocols, especially when datacenters are interconnected through the Internet. Although the “computing” aspects of Cloud technologies have been largely investigated, lower attention has been devoted to the “networking” aspects. The 2017 6th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2017), part of the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, precisely addresses these aspects.
