*************************** HWNQoE-2017 CFP **************************

*2017 International Workshop on Heterogeneous Wireless Networks and
Quality-of-Experience (HWNQoE-2017)*

*Exeter, England, UK, 21-23 June 2017*

To be held in conjunction with the 13th IEEE International Conference on

Green Computing and Communications (GreenCom-2017)

*Focus of the Workshop*


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.
