Call For Papers

International workshop on quality of service management of wireless networks

Scope and Overview

This workshop is to be held in conjunction with the 2010 IEEE Asia-Pacific Services Computing Conference at Hangzhou, China. The objective of this workshop is to review the state of the art research in the quality of service (QoS) management and diagnosis of wireless networks, as well as to explore future research directions in this area. Quality of service of wireless networks refers to the collective service performances with respect to the user expectation and the network configuration. Over the years, the wireless networks have not only expanded in their sizes, such as geographical area and number of nodes, but also in the variety of services, users, and deployment environments. Small mobile devices that allow instantaneous high speed information access and data processing have radically changed the way of our living. Moreover, the development of ad-hoc networks allows the easy formation of wireless networks for information sharing and data gathering.

Due to various factors, wireless networks are constantly changing. For example, the service pattern, workload, available resources (power supply, bandwidth, beacons, nodes etc.) are not fixed. Therefore, it is import to be able to access and manage the quality of services for ensuring the optimal performance of the networks. There are basically two aspects to QoS study in wireless network. One aspect is accessing and diagnosing the status of the networks and evaluating the current level of service quality. The other aspect is to study the network design to handle the changing factors of the network so that the quality of service is optimized under the constraint of the available resources and service pattern. The quality of service management and diagnosis of a network is closely related to wide range of fundamental issues such as network topology, routing protocols, resource allocation, communication layer, and working environments etc. The contributed papers will study both practical and theoretical models and algorithms for ensuring the high quality of service of wireless networks and the approaches for quality of service evaluation and diagnosis.
