Since 1994, 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.

This year, IWQoS 2011 is co-sponsored by both ACM and IEEE, and it will be held at the San Jose Convention Center during June 6-7, 2011 as a part of the Federated Computer Research Conference (FCRC). Also new for this year, we will have a Special Section organized in collaboration with the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM) to provide fast-tracking of high-quality papers from this forum for journal publication, and a Best Paper Award will be given this year as well.

Technical Scope

Improving quality of service (QoS) in both networks and end systems has been a long lasting research focus worldwide. The eighteen-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 2011 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:
