• Communications Quality of Service, Reliability, and Performance Modeling Symposium

Fabrizio Granelli,
University of Trento, granelli@dit.
Toshinori Tsuboi, Tokyo University of Technology,

This symposium emphasizes the design, resource allocation and performance evaluation advances required in order to deliver the expected high quality and reliability in telecommunication networks and services. The symposium will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and academia to exchange ideas and present results of ongoing research on the challenging issues related to the requirements, metrics, measurement, management, and dissemination, as well as performance modeling for the emerging era of network services.
This symposium aims at papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects of performance modeling, QoS and reliability in telecommunication networks. Authors are invited to submit original technical papers covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below.
The symposium is technically endorsed by IEEE ComSoc Technical Committees on "Communications Quality and Reliability" and "Communications Systems Integration & Modeling".
