Call for Symposium Papers

Quality of Service (QoS) has long been the focus of communications and networking researchers worldwide. While traditional QoS research areas continue to attract much interest, recent exploration of Internet of things, data centers, virtualization, cloud and fog computing, cloud services, industrial communication systems, and “green” computing has motivated a new wave of research interest in service guarantees with QoS, and its related metrics of Quality of Experience (QoE), Quality of Protection (QoP), Software Quality, Knowledge Base Quality or, more broadly, Quality of Information Technology.

For more than two decades, IWQoS has established itself as a highly reputable forum to present novel ideas on all QoS-related subjects. IWQoS 2017 sets the goal to continuing to be a premier symposium and an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The scope of IWQoS 2017 covers both newest theoretical and experimental research papers.

Besides regular papers, this year, IWQoS includes the Work-in-Progress track inviting papers presenting new talent, risky ideas, and new subjects to be discussed in a creative and inspiring atmosphere of the event. It is a lively forum to discuss work among each other and with senior researchers, with a special focus on work in progress, upcoming research challenges, and new directions in the field of QoS.

Topics of interest include QoS issues in (but not limited to) the following areas:

    Quality of services in Internet of things
    Quality of cloud services and cloud computing
    Quality of mobile cloud services and fog computing
    Quality of protection, user experience, security and privacy
    Quality of services in software-defined networking
    Quality of services in information-centric networking
    Quality of services in DTN, mobile and next generation cellular networking
    Quality of services in information-centric networking
    Quality of service in physical networks
    System dependability, availability, resilience and robustness to faults and security attacks
    Robustness against security vulnerabilities in critical infrastructures
    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
    Quality of software
    Quality of experience in multimedia networks
    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 and computing systems with QoS in mind

Regular 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 rigorously judged based on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. IWQoS aims at rapid dissemination of research results. Regular paper submissions should be no longer than 10 single-spaced, double-column pages with font-size of 10.
Work in Progress Paper Submission Guidelines:

IWQoS invites submission of manuscripts not previously published or under submission elsewhere, offering new and unexplored, and, even untested ideas in related to QoS that present creative thinking, whilst at the same time opening new opportunities and research directions with high-risk-high-reward outlook. Doctorate students, and those with entrepreneurial ambitions are invited to present. Submissions will be judged based on originality, creativity, and potential. Work-in-progress paper submissions should be no longer than 5 single-spaced, double-column pages with font-size of 10.

Reviewing will be double-blind for both categories of papers. Submissions must not reveal the authors’ names and their affiliations and should make all efforts to avoid obvious self-references and disclosures. Submissions not meeting these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Accepted and presented papers for both categories, will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
