About Workshop

The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Blockchain-enabled Solutions for NFV and SDN (IEEE BC-SDN 2022) will be held on November 14-16, 2022, in Arizona, USA, co-located with IEEE NFV-SDN 2022 (nfvsdn2022.ieee-nfvsdn.org). Blockchain continues to gain huge traction, growth, and adoption across many domains and industries. Blockchain value lies in providing transactions and access to data in a trusted, secure, transparent, tamper-proof, and decentralized manner with no intermediaries. This workshop aims at congregating academic researchers and industry practitioners to share their research in showing how blockchain and distributed ledger technologies can be leveraged for Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN), and future generation networks. We are interested in original works on providing novel, trusted, secure, auditable, and automated management platforms, systems and solutions for NFV, SDN, and emerging generation networks including 5G, 6G, and 7G. We welcome papers on the integration of blockchain with key architectural components, systems, and technologies that support and facilitate NFV/SDN infrastructure and services.
