The objective of this workshop is to bring together practitioners of software defined networks (SDN), from across the different sub-disciplines (optical, “core”, wireless) as well as from academy and industry, to exchange ideas, present exiting new approaches, as well as openly discuss the challenges and opportunities.
As this workshop is targeting participants from a very broad, and often fragmented spectrum, we envision a highly interactive program to identify common challenges and approaches to solve them despite the very different environments in which they may get applied. We therefore specifically invite contributions focusing on visionary ideas and long term challenges to stimulate healthy discussions.
This workshop is open to everyone wanting to participate in a lively discussion on these topics.
8:30 - 8:40: Opening
8:40 - 9:30: Keynote 1
- A Declarative Perspective on Programmable Networking
Boon Thau Loo (University of Pennsylvania)Declarative networking is a programming methodology that enables developers to concisely specify network protocols and services, and directly compile these specifications into a dataflow framework for execution. This talk describes recent advances in declarative networking, tracing its evolution from a rapid prototyping framework towards a platform that serves as an important bridge connecting formal theories for reasoning about protocol correctness and actual implementations. In particular, the talk surveys on the use of declarative networking for addressing four main challenges in the distributed systems development cycle: the generation of safe routing implementations, debugging, security and privacy, and optimizing distributed systems. I will conclude by speculating how ideas from declarative networking can be applied to the exciting new domain of Software Defined Networking.

4:00 - 4:40: Keynote 2
- Software Driven or Defined Networks
Thomas D. Nadeau (Juniper Networks)This presentation will describe the differences between these two approaches and why they are both important, but why the approaches are quite different in purpose and approach. We will touch on why software driven networking is a superset of software defined networking (OpenFlow). The presentation will also discuss the applicability of software driven networks in the context of modern applications and services, and why taking the wider view of software driven networks is beneficial.
