Eleventh International Workshop
on Quality of Service (IWQoS 2003)

Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IFIP WG6.1 in cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and ACM SIGMOBILE

Co-located with NOSSDAV

Invited talks: Rene Cruz (UCSD), Abhay Parekh (ICSI, Berkeley), Lixia Zhang (UCLA)

Panel: "QoS in Demand: Who Needs it Anyway?"; Chair: Klara Nahrstedt (Panelists: Andrew Campbell (Columbia U.), Dave Hartzell (NASA Ames), Jerry Rolia (HP Labs), Ralf Steinmetz (Darmstadt University), Harick Vin (UT Austin))

Workshop theme

IWQoS is a successful series of workshops providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of new research and ideas on quality of service (QoS). The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners working in this area to discuss recent and innovative results, and identify future directions and challenges, in developing practical systems where predictable and controlled performance is a central requirement.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of architecture, algorithm, and protocol design for systems in which QoS requirements are important. In addition to traditional IWQoS topics such as service guarantees and admission control, papers offering research contributions related to robustness, resilience, security, and predictability in networking and distributed systems are particularly solicited.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Scalable QoS architectures
  • Analytical and simulation models for QoS
  • QoS control for middleware
  • Programmability and language aspects
  • QoS issues in overlay and peer-to-peer networks
  • QoS issues in ad-hoc networks
  • Robust and resilient systems
  • Content delivery networks with service guarantees
  • Service assurances in wireless and mobile environments
  • QoS support for information appliances
  • Modeling user and application QoS requirements
  • Charging, accounting, and pricing for QoS
  • Experiences with QoS (measurements, tests, evaluations)
IWQoS aims to allow rapid dissemination of research results and to provide fast turnarond. The deadline for papers is therefore as close to the conference as the publishers allow. In the past the workshop has been cross-disciplinary, well focused, with the emphasis on innovation. As a result, a considerable amount of time is devoted to informal discussion. The programs of the previous workshops is available online

IWQOS 2003 will be held in Monterey, CA, on June 2-4, 2003.
