IEEE IM QoE Management 2017 : IFIP/IEEE Int. Workshop on Quality of Experience Management
Call For Papers
1st IFIP/IEEE Int. Workshop on Quality of Experience Management
Co-located with IEEE IM, May 8-12, 2017 - Lisbon, Portugal
Call for Papers
The First IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Experience
Management (QoE-Management) will be held in conjunction with
IFIP/IEEE IM 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal, from May 8-12, 2017.
Building on the success of the QCMAN (http://qcman.org) and
QoE-FI workshop series (http://qoe-fi.diee.unica.it/2016/),
the workshop is supported by AIT Austrian Institute of Technology,
RWTH Aachen, London South Bank University, and VTT Finland.
The workshop is endorsed by the QoE and Networking Initiative
(http://qoe.community) and the IEEE MMTC QoEIG.
Recent technological advances have enabled a constant proliferation
of novel immersive and interactive services that pose ever-increasing
demands to our communication ecosystem. Examples are: social TV,
immersive environments, mobile gaming, Ultra High Definition (4K/8K),
3D virtual worlds, Augmented Reality, just to cite a few.
These services and applications are typically managed through a set
of Quality of Service parameters (e.g. packet loss, delay, jitter).
However, it is widely agreed that the management of these services
and applications should be centered on their quality, as this is
perceived by the end user: the Quality of Experience (QoE).
This QoE-centric management is greatly challenged in today's
Internet by (i) the stringent QoE requirements of the supported
services and applications (e.g., timing constraints, loss intolerance)
and users (e.g., unpredictability of user behavior, request for
high quality services), (ii) the plethora of service consumption
possibilities (e.g., for video: live vs. on-demand,
managed vs. over-the-top), (iii) the inherent complexity of services
and applications (combining video, audio, real-time text) which can
be offered to users in several ways, to reach the same QoE level
and (iv) the difficulty in assessing the quality as perceived by
the end user also due to insufficient insight in the psychological
and sociological factors of service and application consumption.
QoE-Management 2017 aims at providing an international forum for
researchers addressing these challenges. The workshop will combine
original full and short paper presentations with a motivating
keynote to thoroughly explore this challenging topic.

In addition, we encourage the submission of novel, provocative ideas
or late breaking results that have the potential to generate lively
debate and new perspectives as short papers. These are planned to be
presented in a dedicated session which will help the authors to collect
important feedback and inspire future work on the proposed topic.
* Paper registration: Dec 15, 2016
* Paper submission: Dec 19, 2016
* Notifications: January 30, 2017
* Camera ready: Feb 15, 2017
* Workshop: T.B.A. (May 8 or 12, 2017)
Paper submissions must present original, research or experiences.
Late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing
research are also encouraged. Only original papers that have not
been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be
Each submission must be written in English, accompanied by a
75 to 200 word abstract and a list of up to 5 key words.
There is a length limitation of 6 pages for full papers and
3 pages for short papers (including title, abstract, figures,
tables, and references). Submissions must be in IEEE 2-column style.
Papers exceeding these limits, multiple submissions, and
self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review.
All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not
considered elsewhere for publication. We invite submissions
up to 6 pages long (10pt font, double column, IEEE format),
including text, figures and references.
IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting
instructions, are available online:
Each paper will undergo a thorough process of peer reviews by at
least three members of the technical program committee. Accepted
and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings
and submitted to IEEE Xplore.
Submission implies that at least one author will register and attend
the workshop to present the publication if the paper is accepted.
Contributions should be submitted electronically as PDF, using the
IEEE conference publishing template, via the conference submission
