Proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQoS 2005), held at the University of Passau in June 2005.
"Quality of Service (QoS) continues to be an important area of research. Traditionally very focused on the area of networking, it has grown to include mobile applications, wireless environments, 3G and 4G cellular networks, user experience, overlay networks, large-scale systems and other important areas of application. Six fuller sessions that comprised selected papers of very high quality were devoted to the above menioned, cutting-edge topics in this volume. We had a fascinating cross-disciplinary programme and hope to have seeded connections between different disciplines and between industry and academia." [...] "As always a great deal of effort went into creating this programme. More than 120 submitted papers were received with 317 co-authors from 32 countries belonging to all five continents. [...] "The best 23 full papers, all of which are technically excellent, were selected after a thorough peer-reviewing process, where each paper was independently evaluated by at least three reviewers. In addition to the full papers, 17 short papers were selected based on their merit for the respective session and their general quality."
