International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQOS)

13th International Workshop, IWQoS

Passau, Germany, June 21 - 23, 2005

Co-sponsored by IFIP WG 6.1, German Chapter of the ACM,
GI Regionalgruppe Berlin, IEEE TCCC and EuroNGI


IWQoS has emerged as the prime annual event on Quality-of-Service (QoS)-related research and technologies. Building on the successes of previous workshops, the objective 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. IWQoS has a long standing tradition of being highly interactive while maintaining highest standards of competitiveness and excellence. This characteristic will be re-emphasized by intercepting the regular paper sessions with stimulating discussion events about controversial and cutting edge topics.

The programme will include the following highlights:

  • Key Note Speaker: Randy Katz, "Quality of Service versus Any Service at All", University of California, Berkeley, USA
  • Key Note Speaker: Michael Stal,  "Beyond Middleware and QoS - Service-Oriented Architectures - Cult or Culture?", Siemens Munich, Germany
  • A Panel on "Would self-organized or self-managed networks lead to improved QoS?" by David Hutchison, Lancaster Univ., U.K.
  • Short paper sessions:

  • Industrial Exhibition and Demonstration of Tools and Methods related to Quality of Communication by Jan de Meer, Institute for High-performance Microelectronics GmbH, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany

The panel and lobby exhibition sessions will be highly interactive and leave much time and space to the audience to  meet minds of practitioners and researchers.

The position and short paper sessions will go through the general reviewing process but the papers must specifically be submitted to fit the track. Short versions of regular technical papers will not be accepted here. It is rather encouraged to submit work that is either stimulating with a long term vision or that points to immediate relevance with need for controversial debate to address the foremost experts at the venue. The panel and the short paper session will be highly interactive to get the audience involved.
