Call For Papers

NEWS: The conference proceedings will be archived by IEEE Xplore!
New submission deadline: 1 May 2015!

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.

The only conference focusing on heterogeneous networking, 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.

As a conference series held in three major continents so far, QShine-2014 comes to the Greek Island of Rhodes.

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


* The conference proceedings will be archived by IEEE Xplore!
* The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
* Qshine 2014 will be collocated with the International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks,  AdHocNets.
* All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
* Selected papers, particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication in the special issues of Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) journal (SCIE-indexed) and will be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.

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

* Quality-of-Service (QoS) provisioning: architectures, protocols, mechanisms.
* Quality-of-Service (QoS) provisioning: architectures, protocols, mechanisms.
* Quality of Experience (QoE): user-perceived quality, cost-sensitive experience.
* Reliability and Scalability: performance, adaptation, cognition, extensibility.
* Security and Privacy: system/network security, user privacy/accountability.
* Robustness: fault/disruption/disaster-tolerance, resilience, survivability.
* Cross-Layer Design, Optimization and Implementation: spectrum/energy efficiency.
* Social and Economic Perspectives: incentive, pricing, billing, governance.
* New Applications and Communication Technologies: cloud, smart grid, SDN.


* Full Paper Due 1 May 2014
* Acceptance Notification 16 June 2014
* Camera-ready Due 14 July 2014

The QShine 2014 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference, in Rhodes, Greece, August 2014.
Proposals for workshops should be at most four pages in length and must be submitted to Dr. Adlen Ksentini, University of Rennes 1/INRIA Rennes ( Please find more details here.
Important Dates
•Deadline for proposal submission: 01 May 2014
•Notification of proposal acceptance: 10 May 2014

Conference language is in English. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit full papers in PDF file format. Papers should be prepared in the 2-column IEEE conference paper format in 10-point Times New Roman fonts, and should not be more than 7 pages long all inclusive. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Please visit the Submission page for detailed submission requirements and procedures.

Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal.
Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted. For additional information see the registration information page.

Accepted papers will be published in the Qshine Conference Proceedings, archived by IEEE Xplore and submitted for inclusion in the databases of leading indexing services. We reserve the right to exclude papers accepted but not presented from the conference proceedings submitted for archiving and indexing.

Selected papers, particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication in the special issues of Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) and Springer Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications (PPNA) journals (SCIE-indexed) and will be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.
