Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for
cost-efficient and reliable service delivery across data
communication networks. The dynamic location of service
facilities and the virtualization of hardware and software
elements are stressing the communication network and
protocols, especially when data centers are interconnected
through the Internet. Emerging technologies like Network
Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network
(SDN) can play significant roles by improving the dynamicity
and programmability of cloud networks. Middlebox has been
significantly improved the agility of cloud network
deployment and management. The 9th IEEE International
Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2020), part of
the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, can greatly promote
research in cloud networks and emerging research areas.
