                        IEEE IWQoS 2009
    17th IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Service

                        July 13-15, 2009
                  Charleston, South Carolina


Sixteen years since the inauguration of IWQoS, the workshop has
become the premier forum to present original, novel ideas on all
research subjects related to quality of service provisioning at
end systems or in a networked environment. Recent technological
advances in broadband networks, peer-to-peer networks, wireless
networks, grid computing, and Internet-based social networks have
led to new research challenges, such as providing QoS support for
multimedia applications on the future Internet that seamlessly
integrates wired, wireless, and overlay networks. Building on the
previous success, the objective of this workshop is to bring
together researchers, developers, and practitioners working in
this area to discuss recent and innovative results, and to identify
future directions. The scope of the workshop covers all aspects of
QoS research, including related issues such as availability,
reliability, security, pricing, resource management, and
performance guarantees.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* QoS on the Internet
* QoS in distributed systems, including grid computing systems
* QoS in wireless ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
* QoS in operating system design
* QoS support in middleware
* QoS for web services and storage systems
* QoS for overlay networks
* System dependability, availability, resilience, and robustness
* Security and privacy as QoS parameters
* Adaptive QoS in a dynamic environment
* QoS evaluation metrics and methodologies
* QoS analysis and modeling
* QoS pricing and billing
* QoS architectures and protocols
* QoS routing algorithms
* Programmability and language features supporting QoS
* Rationality, incentive, microeconomics, and self-interest in
  decentralized networks
* QoS in business processes, workflows
* Policy-based QoS management
* Last-mile QoS at wireless edge
* QoS assurance under DoS or DoQ (denial of quality) attacks
* QoS design for the future Internet.

IWQoS invites submission of manuscripts with original research
results that have not been previously published or 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 reasonable margins
and font sizes of 10 or larger. All accepted papers, will be
included in the conference proceedings. At least one of the authors
of each accepted paper must present the paper at IWQoS 2009.

IWQoS aims at rapid dissemination of research results. For fast
turnaround, a short review and publication cycle is designed, with
the submission deadline as close to the workshop as the publisher
allows. The workshop is a single-track forum spanning two and a
half days. Award will be given at the workshop to the best paper.
