                         CQR2010 Workshop: Jun 8-10, 2010



The annual IEEE CQR International Workshop is held with the purpose of
bringing together industry and academic experts to present and discuss
communications quality, reliability and security issues as they relate to
real world issues. Continuing the tradition, CQR2010 will provide an
international technical forum for experts from industry and academia to
exchange ideas and present results of ongoing research in two program
tracks: Industry-focused Strategic Track and Technical Paper Track.

In addition, there will be a special theme on the telecommunications of
Olympic Games. In the Millennium Workshop (CQR2000), select industry
executives, seasoned managers, and senior subject matter experts from
sponsor organizations of world-class events, telecommunication companies,
and government officials of host cities/countries came together to discuss
the requirements and steps necessary to build and operate a
"Perfect Network" for such events. Among them were people who played a
pivotal in the success of the Winter and Summer Olympiads in the 1992-2006
period. They shared experiences, plans, "do lists", and their vision to
ensure a "Perfect Service". The three intense days of selected
presentations focused on how to avoid "re-inventing the wheel" every time
that a city or country becomes a candidate/host for such world class events.
The output of the Millennium Workshop was published in a well received
special issue of the IEEE Communications Magazine (July 2001, Vol. 39,
No. 7).

Ten years later, this sequel CQR Workshop will focus on the unique
challenges of hosting Olympiads in the Internet and wireless era. The
telecommunications technology for the Olympic Games has gone through
remarkable changes since 2000. Following a technological migration path,
the Olympic Networks are evolving to a Next Generation Network (NGN),
which is a packet-based network that seamlessly supports data, voice, and
video services. However, evolving network architectures and technologies
pose interesting challenges in measuring the "end-toend" reliability and
QoS, two critical aspects regarding the resilience of the Olympic Networks.
The goal of this sequel workshop is to cover the Winter and Summer Olympic
Games in the 2008-2016 period. Key people from the International Olympic
Committee, the Organizing Committees, the Grand Telecom Sponsors, and the
telecom industry involved in the telecommunications aspects of those Games
will be invited to participate.


For the Strategic Track, 3 themes aligned with CQR's Charter:
Quality & reliability of Service Network and Product/System are being
organized. Topics and presentations of past years can be found on the CQR
events page
Please visit the CQR2010 website for the updated program in the future.
