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
* QoS-aware programming models and languages
* 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 turnaround. 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.
