Scope and Topics of Interest

In modern communication networks, different technologies need to cooperate with each other for end-to-end quality of service (QoS) provisioning, support a wide range of multimedia applications with a huge number of customers represented not only by humans, but more and more by things and robots interconnected to each other and to data centers. The Communication QoS, Reliability and Modeling (CQRM) Symposium aims at providing an international venue for the discussion of research advances in communications service provisioning, quality of service/experience technologies, and analytical and experimental techniques to allow the design of communication networks as a reliable information infrastructure with QoS capability. The scope of this symposium is agnostic to network technologies. Specifically, the goal is to address the key challenges to provide the required level of QoS, security and reliability to coexisting networks that are heterogeneous in nature, in size, and in the type of information transmitted. Topics of interest for the CQRM Symposium include, but are not limited to:
