20th IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQoS 2012)

University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal, June 4-5, 2012 

Quality of Service (QoS) in communication systems has been a long lasting research focus worldwide. The twenty-year history of IWQoS has established it as a highly reputable forum to present novel ideas on all research subjects related to the topic. While QoS research for future generations of wired and wireless networks continues to attract much interest, recent exploration of 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 2010 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 cloud services and cloud computing
* Quality of protection, quality 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; 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, overlay and peer-to-peer networks; optical networks, wireless, ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
* Energy awareness in communication systems
* Design for the Future Internet

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. 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 IEEE Xplore and EI indexed. However, IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Paper submission deadline: Feb. 8, 2012
Notification of acceptance:  April 5, 2012
Camera-ready papers: April 23, 2012
Conference dates: June 4-5, 2012
