QoE Management Workshop

The QoE Management Workshop will be part of the QoMEX2018 program and will be devoted to topics related to the management of services and applications to improve the user-perceived quality through the incorporation QoE awareness in networking technologies, protocols, and algorithms. Proper QoE models and QoE monitoring mechanisms are fundamental for realizing QoE in networking, but also for the performance evaluation of such systems.

This workshop is an effort to make to create stronger synergies between the networking and QoE communities that can meet in a single venue.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

    QoE-aware network and application management: QoE management in heterogeneous networks, energy efficient QoE management, adaptive QoE management, self-organization techniques for the management of multimedia services
    Network architectures and protocols supporting QoE: QoE-aware architecture with an emphasis on virtualization technologies, realization of QoE management with SDN, cooperative approaches towards QoE management, new paradigms supporting QoE e.g. 5G Networks, ICN, telco clouds, new transport and application protocols, e.g. HTTP/2, webRTC
    Application of QoE management to different business sectors and use cases: smart city, transport and automotive, energy-efficient communication, healthcare and AAL, intelligent manufacturing, Industry 4.0, immersive Media (3D, AR and VR), real-time, Web- and Cloud applications, business aspects of QoE management
    Experimental approaches for QoE management: experiments in commercial settings and controlled lab environments, experimental facilities for evaluation of algorithms and services in the context of QoE management, QoE monitoring and measurement, Big Data and analytics-driven QoE monitoring approaches, effects of Internet performance on QoE, QoE monitoring approaches in the wild

Submission Procedure

Prospective authors are invited to submit full or short papers (maximum of 6 or 2 pages, respectively) to the general track, workshop on QoE Management and special sessions. Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind review process. All papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
Submit a special session proposal

The special session proposals should be sent to the special session chairs Maria Martini and Maurizio Murroni. The proposal should provide the following information: title, motivation and objectives, topics of interest, confirmed papers submissions (title, authors and abstract), organizers bio. Full papers will be published in IEEExplore.  All papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
