Call For Papers

EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the event.

EAI Qshine is a top-ranked conference venue for researchers: CORE conference ranking: B.
Qshine authors have enjoyed over 348.000 downloads.


Heterogeneous networking has long been the focus of computer network and communications researchers worldwide. Since 2004, QSHINE has been established as the primary venue for researchers and practitioners to present novel ideas on heterogeneous networking related subjects, particularly for quality, experience, reliability, security and robustness of heterogeneous networking. QSHINE 2021 sets the goal to be a high-quality conference and an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The scope of QSHINE 2021 covers both newest theoretical and practical research topics to address the challenges from both the trending application requirements and the communication technologies.
