                                 CALL FOR PAPERS
   The 15th IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQoS)
                         Chicago, IL, June 20-22, 2007

Quality of Service principles can be applied to a large number of
domains, and are particular relevant to the new NSF initiatives on
Future Internet Design (FIND) and Global Environment for Network
Innovations (GENI). The scope of the workshop will broadly cover all the
important aspects of QoS research: in networking (wireline, wireless,
and sensor networks), distributed systems, operating systems, servers,
and middleware (such as grid computing and peer-to-peer systems). The
workshop values both theoretical and practical research contributions
and encourages multi-disciplinary approaches to QoS research. Besides
traditional QoS topics, we welcome submissions on relevant technical
issues, such as availability, reliability, security, pricing, incentive,
resource management, and performance guarantees, in the context of
networking and distributed systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
QoS in the wide-area Internet, peer-to-peer, overlay
QoS in large-scale distributed systems, including grid environments
QoS in wireless, mobile, ad hoc, and sensor networks (including  
wireless mesh networks)
QoS in intranets and VoIP systems
QoS for web services and storage systems
System dependability, availability, resilience, and robustness
Security and privacy as QoS parameters
QoS specification, translation, and adaptation
QoS evaluation metrics and methodologies (measurements, verification,  
QoS analysis and modeling
QoS pricing and billing
QoS architectures and protocols (including QoS routing)
Programmability and language features supporting QoS
Rationality, incentive, microeconomics, and self-interest in  
decentralized networks
QoS and new media
QoS and haptics , virtual environments
QoS in business processes, workflows

IWQoS invites submission of manuscripts that present original research
results, and that have not been previously published or currently under
review by another conference or journal. Any previous or simultaneous
publication of related material should be explicitly noted in the
submission. Submissions should be full-length papers that are no longer
than 8 single-spaced, double-column pages with font sizes of 10 or
larger, including all figures and references, and must include an
abstract of 100 -- 150 words. We recommend that you use the IEEE
transactions format. All papers must be submitted in the Adobe PDF
format, and no other formats are accepted by the paper submission web
site. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest,
clarity, relevance, and correctness. At least one of the authors of each
accepted paper must present the paper at IWQoS 2007.

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 (about 4-5 months apart). The workshop is a
single-track forum spanning two and a half days. Award will be given at
the workshop to the best student paper, whose first author is a current
student. The best paper award will be chosen in consultation with the
TPC members and will be based on the topic, technical contributions,
review scores and comments of the paper.
