18th IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQoS 2010)
June 16-18, 2010, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

Improving quality of service ( QoS ) in both networks and end systems has been a long lasting research focus worldwide. The seventeen-year-long success of IWQoS has established it as a highly reputable forum to present novel ideas on all research subjects related to QoS. While QoS research for future generations of wired and wireless networks continues to captivate much interest, recent exploration of data centers, virtualization, cloud computing, 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 IWQoS 2010 covers both theoretical and experimental research on QoS 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:

  • Data centers, virtualization and cloud computing
  • Energy saving in networks and end systems; IT technologies to reduce energy consumption in applications
  • Protection, experience, security and privacy
  • System dependability, availability; resilience and robustness to faults and DoS 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 and WDM networks, overlay and peer-to-peer networks; wireless ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
  • Design for the future Internet

Paper Submission Guidelines: 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. 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 IEEE Xplore and EI indexed.  However, IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Paper submission deadline: Feb. 8, 2010
Notification of accept: April 5, 2010
Camera-ready papers: April 23, 2010
