14th International Conference on Network and Service Management
Rome, Italy, Nov. 5 - Nov. 9, 2018

1st Workshop on Segment Routing and Service Function Chaining (SR+SFC 2018)


Segment Routing and Service Function Chaining represent two of the main novelties in the networking management area.
Segment Routing is a new paradigm defined to reduce the complexity of flow based protocols, such as MPLS, and to support new network functions, such as advanced TE solutions and network programmability.
Service Function Chaining allows to fully exploit the Network Function Virtualization technology, integrating network routing and service provisioning.
SR and SFC are young technologies with many open problems. These range from the definition of TE algorithms suited to SR/SFC environments, to the deployment of such solutions in real-world scenarios.
The Segment Routing and Service Function Chaining (SR+SFC) workshop is an international forum to discuss Segment Routing related technologies and Service Function Chaining advances. The main aim of the workshop is to provide a dynamic environment for sharing ideas and promote collaboration among the SR and SFC communities.
