Call For Papers

Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI QSHINE 2020 will take place online in a live stream.

Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.


Computer networking has been embracing increased heterogeneity since its inception, in terms of the range of the applications it has to support, the various communication technologies it can run on, and the hierarchical, hybrid and heterogeneous techniques it has to rely on to meet the challenges from both the diverse application requirements and communication technologies.

Qshine has been established as the primary venue for researchers and practitioners to disseminate exchange and discuss all recent advances related to heterogeneous networking, particularly for quality, experience, reliability, security and robustness.

Original submissions, not under any concurrent reviews, are solicited in all areas related to heterogeneous wired, wireless and hybrid networks varying from IoT and edge devices, vehicles, cellular, ad hoc, enterprise, datacenters, to service-provider and overlay networks, ranging from in/on-body, personal/local/metropolitan/wide-area, to intra/inter-planetary scales.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Network Theories and Models

• Security, Cryptography, and Privacy Networks Design
• Quality of Service (QoS) Provisioning: Architectures, Protocols and Mechanisms
• Quality of Experience (QoE): User-perceived Quality, Cost-sensitive Experience
