The success of the Internet has led to an explosion of new networks, from networks based around different physical technologies: 5G, Wi-Fi, and optical systems, to networks based around objects such as Internet of Things, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, Intelligent Spaces and Smart Homes. How to manage such a diverse and heterogeneous networking environment is now an urgent issue that needs to be addressed. In addition, the number of applications that want to use these networks is rapidly expanding. Hence, in this new context, support for end-to-end security and dynamic Quality-of-Service management must also be provided.

This workshop features expert speakers on topics such as Software Defined Networking, Future Internet, 5G and Optical Networks and will also feature an afternoon discussion of these vital issues led by an expert panel.
