Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology augmented by Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are radically changing telecommunication networks. SDN separates the control functions from the underlying physical network by decoupling the control and data planes thereby offering improved programmability, ease of deployment, management, reduced costs, better scalability, availability, flexibility and fine‐grain control of traffic. NFV nicely complements SDN by virtualizing network services to reduce the dependency on underlying hardware which aids efficient resource management.
This seminar aims at being an excellent opportunity for some prominent players in the IT and Telco arena, including academia, discuss their current view on the emerging SDN/NFV technologies. At the end of this event, we aim to specify a common set of global goals to achieve with these new technologies to empower the current networking infrastructure and prepare it for the upcoming paradigms, such as Multi-Access Edge Computing / Internet of Things.
The seminar is open to all interested in this topic (students, researchers, professionals). Due to limitations on the participants number a pre- registration is required.

XII Iberian Meeting on Computational Electromagnetics
16 to 18 May 2018, Coimbra, Portugal
The XII Iberian Meeting on Computational Electromagnetics will be held in Coimbra, from 16 to 18 May 2018. The venue chosen for this meeting is Quinta das Lágrimas. This meeting enables closer links and sharing information between Portuguese and Spanish research groups involved in applications of electromagnetism. In the spirit of facilitating the establishment of new collaborations between members of these different groups, this meeting promotes participation of all attendees through a close and familiar environment, with a highly specialized technical plenary session, allowing the groups to present the research lines currently under development and the most relevant results and state of the art in various fields covering the scope of the meeting.
