Quality of Service (QoS) has long been the focus of communications researchers worldwide. Since 1993, IWQoS has served as the premier venue on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting edge research in the field. IWQoS 2015 will continue to be a premier symposium on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The 2015 edition of the IEEE/ACM IWQoS Symposium will be held in conjunction with ACM FCRC on June 15th/16th in Portland, Oregon, USA.



  • June 15th, 2015: Dinner logistics information: Dinner will be at Bridgeport Brewpub, 1313 NW Marshall Street, Portland, OR 97209 (http://www.bridgeportbrew.com). You can take the streetcar (http://www.portlandstreetcar.org/) from the Oregon Convention Center to BridgePort. The streetcar actually drops at the BridgePort stop so it is very convenient. Bridgeport does not provide a parking lot for guests but there is plenty of off street metered parking all around.
    There is also a public parking garage across the street from the BrewPub that guests may use.

Technical Scope

While traditional QoS research areas continue to attract much interest, recent exploration of information-centric networking, software-defined networking, Internet of things, data centers, virtualization, cloud computing, cloud services, 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 2015 covers both theoretical and experimental research on QoS, QoE, QoP and 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:

  • Quality of services in software-defined networking
  • Quality of services in information-centric networking
  • Quality of services in Internet of things
  • Quality of cloud services and cloud computing
  • Quality of protection, user experience, security and privacy
  • System dependability, availability, resilience and robustness to faults and security attacks
  • Scheduling, resource management, queue management, admission control
  • Traffic engineering approaches and tools for provisioning and evaluation
  • Quality evaluation metrics and methodologies
  • QoS parsing, identification and control
  • Measurement, evaluation, adaptation and verification
  • Network operations, pricing and billing, network and service management
  • Architectures and protocols for IP, overlay and peer-to-peer networks, optical networks, wireless, ad hoc, mesh, and sensor networks
  • Energy awareness in communication systems
  • Design for future networks

Questions regarding paper submission or the conference should be emailed to the program co-chairs.
