IWQoS 2015 : IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Quality and Service
Conference Series : International Workshop on Quality of Service
Call For Papers
Quality of Service (QoS) has long been the focus of communications researchers worldwide. For more than two decades, IWQoS has established itself as a highly reputable forum to present novel ideas on all QoS-related subjects. IWQoS 2015 will continue to be a premier symposium on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. While traditional QoS research areas continue to attract much interest, recent exploration of information-centric networking, software-defined networking, Internet of things, data centers, virtualization, cloud computing, cloud services, industrial communication, and “green” computing has motivated a new wave of research interest in QoS and its related metrics such as Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Protection (QoP).
The scope of IWQoS 2015 covers both theoretical and experimental research on QoS, QoE, QoP and related issues such as survivability, availability, reliability, security, privacy, pricing, resource provisioning and management, user experience, and system performance guarantees. Topics of interest include QoS issues in (but not limited to) the following areas:
Quality of services in software-defined networking
Quality of services in information-centric networking
Quality of services in Internet of things
Quality of cloud services and cloud computing
Quality of protection, user experience, security and privacy
System dependability, availability, resilience and robustness to faults and security attacks
Scheduling, resource management, queue management, admission control
Traffic engineering approaches and tools for provisioning and evaluation
Quality evaluation metrics and methodologies
QoS parsing, identification and control
Measurement, evaluation, adaptation and verification
Network operations, pricing and billing, network and service management
Architectures and protocols for IP, overlay and peer-to-peer networks, optical networks, wireless, ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
Energy awareness in communication systems
Design for future networks
Paper Submission Guidelines:
IWQoS invites submission of manuscripts with original research results that have not been previously published or that are not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions will be judged based on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. IWQoS aims at rapid dissemination of research results. The proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore and EI indexed.
Reviewing will be double-blind. Submissions must not reveal the authors' names and their affiliations and avoid obvious self-references. Submissions not meeting these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits.
Paper submissions should be no longer than 10 single-spaced, double-column pages with font-size of 10. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files. The papers will be submitted via EDAS.
