This year’s edition of the “Future networks” conference series will be jointly organized and co-located with the workshop “SON for Future Networks” organized by the EU project SEMAFOUR with an invited talk from the CELTIC+ project SHARING.
The research and development of future networks is currently dominated by two major trends: On the one hand, Self-Organizing Networks (SON) promise to allow for a flexible and decentralized integration and control of network components. On the other hand, Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network
Function Virtualization (NFV) concepts introduce a centralized control of network components to allow for effective implementation of high-end Quality of Service targets in heterogeneous environments. The 2014 edition of the conference aims to shed a light on how these two major trends interact with each other: where do they complement each other, where do they compete against each other when building the networks of the future?

Due to the partially international background of the participants, the conference “Future networks” will be held in English in 2014.
The SEMAFOUR workshop will take place one day before the “Future networks” conference. It will address topics such as Multi-RAT / Multi-layer SON Functions and Inte grated SON Management and Operation. Presentations for the “Future networks” conference will complement these topics with presentations on SDN (and its combination/interaction with SON).
