Since 1993, IWQoS has served as the premier annual workshop on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting edge research in the field. Since 2013, IWQoS has become a symposium based on its past success. IWQoS 2014 will continue to be a full-scale symposium for the community of Quality of Service.
The 2014 edition of the IEEE/ACM IWQoS Symposium will be held on May 26-27 2014 in Hong Kong, China. 


The conference is also supported by K. C. Wong Foundation.

    Technical Scope

    Quality of Service (QoS) in communication systems has been a long lasting research focus worldwide. More than twenty-year history of IWQoS has established itself 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 2014 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
