QShine 2004 - First International Conference on Quality of Service in
Heterogeneous Wired/Wireless Networks
18-20/10/2004 Dallas, Texas, USA    http://qshine.org/

Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE COMSOC TCCC, IEEE Dallas Chapter, and ACM.
(*Approval pending on ACM)

Recent technological developments in broadband high-speed networks,
peer-to-peer networks,
wireless and mobile networks, and grid computing have led to newer
challenging problems,
such as providing QoS support to the emerging high-speed internet and
multimedia applications
across both wired and wireless networks.

This conference will focus on all aspects of QoS support for heterogeneous
wired and wireless networks.
Papers addressing cross-layer design on QoS support for both wired and
wireless networks are strongly encouraged.
It will serve as a forum for researchers from both academia and industry for
presenting recent research results
in QoS issues for both wired and wireless networks.

The conference features prominent invited speakers as well as papers by top
researchers in the field.
Please join us in Dallas for QShine 2004!

Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and practical results of
The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to:
QoS in wireless local area networks
QoS in sensor networks and wireless ad-hoc networks
QoS support and mobility management in wireless Internet
QoS in wireless and mobile multimedia
QoS provisioning in mobile IP and IPv6
Scheduling policies for wireless networks
QoS in current and emerging cellular and satellite networks
Differentiated service in wireless multimedia networks
QoS in broadband high-speed networks
QoS in optical networks
