Call For Papers

INTRODUCTION
=================
With the rapid innovation in sophisticated wireless communication technologies including 4G LTE-Advanced, fixed and mobile broadband WiMAX, 3G UMTS/CDMA and high-speed Wi-Fi, the past years have witnessed a dramatic growth of mobile multimedia applications, for example, Live Mobile Video, 3D Video Stream, Digital and Mobile TV, VoIP, etc. These content-rich multimedia applications consume a huge amount of network resources and create new challenging issues for heterogeneous wireless networks to satisfy the ever-increasing Quality-of-Experience (QoE) requirements. Furthermore, the traditional criteria for the measurements and provisioning of network performances are generally based on Quality of Service (QoS), which is defined in terms of network delivery capacity and resource availability such as bandwidth, jitter, throughput, transmission delay and availability. While it is widely accepted that QoS is inadequate for successfully and comprehensively evaluating the user-perceived quality of multimedia services over heterogeneous networks, as QoE is determined not only by QoS but also by the quality of multimedia content to be delivered.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together industry and academic researchers to provide an up-to-date picture of the state-of-the-art research in the field of heterogeneous wireless communications and QoE provisioning. It is also intended to provide a forum to exchange varying beliefs and understandings of how to seamless integrate advanced wireless networking and adaptive multimedia processing for enabling evolution of the current wireless system toward future networks.

Submission details
==============
We solicit original and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference. All papers will be reviewed by the HWNQoE-2018 Program Committee for significance, originality, accuracy, and clarity. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with over length charge), including figures and references (see the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines: here). For detailed submission instructions, please visit the workshop website: HWNQoE-2018.
Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI). If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the workshop to present the work.
