IWQoS 2011 : IEEE 19th International Workshop on Quality of Service
Conference Series : International Workshop on Quality of Service
Call For Papers
Improving quality of service (QoS) in both networks and end-systems has been a long lasting research focus worldwide. The eighteen-year-long success of IWQoS has established it as a highly reputable forum to present novel ideas on all research subjects related to QoS. While QoS research for future generations of wired and wireless networks continues to captivate much interest, recent exploration of data centers, virtualization, cloud computing, industrial communication, and "green" computing has motivated a new wave of research interest in QoS and its related metrics such as Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Protection (QoP) . The scope of IWQoS 2011 covers both theoretical and experimental research on QoS related issues such as survivability, availability, reliability, security, privacy, pricing, resource provisioning and management, user experience, and system performance guarantees. Topics of interest include QoS issues in (but not limited to) the following areas:
Data centers, virtualization and cloud computing
Energy saving in networks and end systems; IT technologies to reduce energy consumption in applications
Protection, experience, security and privacy
System dependability, availability; resilience and robustness to faults and DoS attacks
Scheduling, resource management, queue management, admission control; traffic engineering approaches and tools for provisioning and evaluation
Quality evaluation metrics and methodologies; application-aware QoS parsing, identification and control
Measurement, evaluation, adaptation and verification
Network operations, pricing and billing, network and service management
Architectures and protocols for IP and WDM networks, overlay and peer-to-peer networks; wireless ad-hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
Design for the future Internet
Green technology for computing, networking, and communications
This year, we will have a Special Section organized in collaboration with the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM) to provide fast-tracking of high-quality papers from this forum for journal publication. Also, a Best Paper Award will be given this year as well.
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 judged based on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness. Paper submissions should be no longer than 9 single-spaced, double-column pages with font-size of 10. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files through the EDAS system (http://edas.info/). All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. IWQoS aims at rapid dissemination of research results. For fast turnaround in the review process, a short review and publication cycle is designed, with the submission deadline as close to the workshop as the publisher allows.
The proceedings will be published in the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore.
PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IWQoS 2011 Conference Proceedings (as well as the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore), an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the IWQoS 2011 Conference Proceedings. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE IWQoS 2011 Conference Proceedings, the ACM Portal, and IEEE Xplore.
