The Large Scale Networking (LSN) Workshop on Operationalizing SDN was held from September 18 until September 20 in Washington, D.C. The workshop is in sequel to two previous workshops in 2013 and 2015, with the purpose to invite participants from the academia, industry, open source software communities, and government agencies to discuss the current state and forward pathways for the realization of an open, innovative, multi-domain and inter-operable SDN as an operational infrastructure. The workshop intends to facilitate an objective and constructive dialogue among different SDN stakeholder communities. It will provide input for LSN to identify opportunities and strategies towards the next important milestones for operational SDN.

This workshop was co-organized by the LSN IWG and Clemson University (NSF Award CNS-1747856).
