[ContextQoS 2013]
3rd International Workshop on Context-aware QoS Provisioning and Management for Emerging Networks, Applications and Services

Important Dates
Paper due: March 17th, 2013 (EXTENDED DEADLINE)
Author Notification: April 26th, 2013
Camera-ready due: May 10th, 2013
Workshop Date: July 30th, 2013

In conjunction with 22nd International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN) 2013 from July 30 - August 2, 2013 in Nassau, Bahamas!

ICCCN is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society. The Proceedings of the ICCCN 2013 has already been accepted in the IEEE Conference Publication Program. Workshop papers will appear in the conference proceedings.

Context-aware QoS provisioning and management has many facets and most of the time novel tailored QoS schemes are required to provide an appropriate level of QoS for different types of networks, applications and services.

For example, the execution of business processes is supported by running many applications within a corporate network. Each business process includes several tasks which have different priorities expressing each task's relevance in helping to achieve the related business objectives. The provisioning of a certain level of QoS according to the requirements of an entire business process can hardly be accomplished in Wired Intra-Networks using traditional QoS provisioning and management schemes because these do not account for the dynamic requirements introduced by business processes. The definition of a certain level of QoS using the traditional models is just driven by technical aspects of the running applications. A novel QoS scheme must be context-aware regarding business processes and must account for the dynamic requirements and ideally permits application-independent usage.

The context of business processes as input for context-aware QoS provisioning and management in Wired Intra-Networks is only one application area in this field. Context-awareness is required in several types of networks and for different types of applications and services. All of these are different. E.g., the occurring network traffic in Wireless Mesh Sensor Networks cannot be compared to network traffic of a corporate Intra-Network. Each of them have different constraints and demands that should be covered by a context-aware QoS provisioning and management system. This workshop, among other things, wants to bring together researchers to present and discuss novel approaches and solutions as well as recent results in this area of research, e.g. specially designed for Cloud and Grid Computing, Wireless Mesh Networks, Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks, Wireless and Mobile Sensor Networks, Private Home Networks as well as Cyber Physical Systems and Networks.

Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EDAS (http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=14283&track=29485) as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 5 pages. One additional page is permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages). Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es). The paper must be registered on and submitted to EDAS by the deadline. The paper title and author name list/order cannot be changed during the final camera-ready submission. All authors of a paper must be registered in the RIGHT order at the SUBMISSION TIME and cannot be changed after the submission due time.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. An accepted paper must be presented at the ICCCN 2013 venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. Each workshop registration covers up to two workshop papers by an author. Accepted and registered papers will be published in proceedings that will be available through IEEE Xplore. Papers that are not presented at the ICCCN 2013 venue by one of the registered co-authors will not appear in IEEE Xplore.
