MOBISLICE III Workshop 3rd edition of Mobility Support in Slice-based Network Control for Heterogeneous Environments, held in conjunction with the VI IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization.

Network slicing has been standing as one of the key enabling technologies for the upcoming 5th Generation of Telecommunications. Alongside other important technologies, such as NFV, SDN, and MEC, its contributions to isolated network provisioning in a more dynamic and flexible way are being pursued in different industry and academic arenas throughout the world.

Nonetheless, considering the wide range of foreseen enhanced use cases (not only in the scope of 5G but also Beyond-5G), slicing aspects have been mostly targeting either enhancement at the radio level or the integration of cloud resourcing capabilities for supporting network operation at the core and/or the edge.

As such, there is a wide gap-related to the impact that such slicing-based procedures will exert over mobility management processes for seamless mobility support while the devices, network, or services move both physically (i.e., change their network point of attachment) as well as virtually (i.e., between slices).

MOBISLICE III will focus on bringing forth first assessments, technical planning, and supportive technologies evolutions, for the validation of network slice deployments in real and experimental scenarios within and outside the lab.

It will look deep into on-going research and industrial efforts not only featuring ICT players (e.g., telcos, system providers, vendors) but also verticals (as the network slice consumers), which are pursuing joint technical solutions where the mobility of slices has a presence.

Additionally, it will also look at the underlying technical innovations and tools over existing experimental infrastructure, to support these real experiments, trials, laboratory work, and scalability models/assessment.
