The Symposium on SDN Research (SOSR) is the premiere venue for research publications on SDN, building on past years' successful SOSR and HotSDN (Hot Topics in Software Defined Networking) workshops. The ACM SOSR 2019 will be held in San Jose, CA in April of 2019. Like previous years, SOSR will be held at same time as the Open Networking Summit (ONS). This year we are excited to offer SOSR attendees a discount on ONS registration. See registration page for more details.

We also pleased to announce that we will again be giving out the SOSR Software Systems Award at this year's SOSR, which recognizes software that has significantly impacted SDN.

On freedom of movement

We organizers of ACM SOSR are committed to ensuring a free exchange of ideas and international cooperation. We fully support ACM SIGCOMM's "Statement on Freedom of Movement," as well as ACM's statement of "Concern about United States Executive Order Suspending Visas"; we will do all we can to help participants to attend and interact with others at SOSR.
