Quality of Service (QoS) has long been the focus of communications researchers worldwide. Since 1993, IWQoS has served as the premier venue on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting edge research in the field. IWQoS 2016 will continue to be a premier symposium on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The 2016 edition of the IEEE/ACM IWQoS Symposium will be held on June 20th/21th in Beijing, China.

Technical Scope

While traditional QoS research areas continue to attract much interest, recent exploration of information-centric networking, software-defined networking, Internet of things, data centers, virtualization, cloud computing, cloud services, 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 2016 covers both theoretical and experimental research on QoS, QoE, QoP and 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:

  • Quality of services in software-defined networking
  • Quality of services in information-centric networking
  • Quality of services in Internet of things
  • Quality of cloud services and cloud computing
  • Quality of protection, user experience, security and privacy
  • System dependability, availability, resilience and robustness to faults and security attacks
  • Scheduling, resource management, queue management, admission control
  • Traffic engineering approaches and tools for provisioning and evaluation
  • Quality evaluation metrics and methodologies
  • QoS parsing, identification and control
  • Measurement, evaluation, adaptation and verification
  • Network operations, pricing and billing, network and service management
  • Architectures and protocols for IP, overlay and peer-to-peer networks, optical networks, wireless, ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
  • Energy-aware computing and communication systems
  • Design for future networks
