IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Quality of Service
4-6 June 2018 – Banff, Alberta, Canada

Call for Posters and Demos

IWQoS is the premier annual symposium on Quality of Service, providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting edge research in the field. Following previous practice, IWQoS 2017 will include a poster and demo track. While all submissions are welcome, we particularly encourage doctoral students to submit their work. It will be a lively forum to discuss work among each other and with senior researchers, with a special focus on work in progress, upcoming research challenges, and new directions in the field of QoS.

The topics of the IWQoS poster and demo session coincide with the IWQoS main track. They include but are not limited to:

  • Quality of services in Internet of things
  • Quality of cloud services and cloud computing
