Call For Papers

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 IEEE/ACM IWQoS 2012 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:

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.


Paper Submission Guidelines: 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 the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore.

Questions regarding paper submission or the conference should be emailed to:

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IWQoS 2012 Conference Proceedings (as well as the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore), an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at full (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Registration feeds must be pair prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration if valid for up to 2 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the IWQoS 2012 Conference Proceedings. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE IWQoS Conference Proceedings, the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore.
