Final Call for Papers
Fourth International Workshop on
Advanced Internet Charging and QoS Technologies (ICQT'04)
"QoS has its Price"
co-located with the Fifth International Workshop on
Quality of future Internet Services (QofIS'04)
September 29 - October 1, 2004
Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain
ICQT'04 URL: http://www.ftw.at/icqt
The current shift of Internet communications towards differentiated
services enables and supports a huge variety of prosperous business
models. The resulting combination of support service issues with
technological and economic perspectives drives many relevant and
interesting research topics for application developers, business
architects, network providers, service providers, and customers.
Especially the identification of novel Internet charging solutions,
the investigation and evaluation of their technical feasibility,
and the consolidation of technical and economic mechanisms for
enabling a fast, guaranteed, and efficient charging of
communications services is of fundamental importance for the future
evolution of the Internet, and as such the central focus of the
international ICQT workshop series.
ICQT'04 is the fourth event in this series, following the highly
successful workshops ICQT'01 in Vienna (Austria), ICQT'02 in
Zurich (Switzerland) and ICQT'03 in Munich (Germany). The focus
of this year's workshop is on the economics of Internet services,
pricing for Quality-of-Service (QoS), and the required technology
in support of charging. Besides charging technology in terms of
monitoring, accounting, and security mechanisms, also pricing and
charging models for peer-to-peer applications, multicast, wireless,
and QoS services are of importance. Therefore, authors are invited
to submit work on issues related to, but not limited by, the
following list of topics:
o Network economics and economic models for the Internet
o Internet pricing, tariffing, and billing
o Internet charging technologies
o Monitoring, measuring, and accounting
o ISP cost and business models
o Charging for QoS, services, and content
o Pricing mobile and wireless services
o Application service provider models
o Security mechanisms for charging
o Management of Service Level Agreements
Papers and Submissions
Papers are solicited as full papers (in English), of no more than
10 single-spaced pages, each of which will be subject to a full
review process. Submissions should already follow the author
guidelines as specified below and must include: title, authors,
affiliations, 100-word abstract, and a list of at most five
keywords. The corresponding author should be identified clearly,
including name, position, mailing address, telephone and fax
numbers, and e-mail address. An electronic, PDF-based submission
of papers is mandatory.
Papers submission is being handled through the EDAS system
running at http://www.edas.info. The submission procedure
is a three-step process:
(1) First, you have to register the author(s) within the
EDAS system. To do this, go to the EDAS system and follow
(2) Next, you have to register the paper within the EDAS
system. To do this, login into the EDAS system, find
"ICQT'04" in the list of conferences and click on the link
to submit a paper for ICQT'04. You have to fill out a form
which describes your paper.
(3) Finally, you can (from within EDAS) upload your PDF file.
Once the upload has completed successfully, the submission
procedure ends. If you experience problems with the system,
please feel free to send an email to icqt04 at ftw.at.
Please check the URL http://www.ftw.at/icqt for
further submission instructions or contact icqt04 at ftw.at for
additional information. The conference proceedings are being
published as hard-copy and electronically by Springer Verlag,
Heidelberg, Germany, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
Series and will be available during the event.
Authors are obliged to follow the LNCS's guidelines (see
for detailed information) in preparing
their manuscript. Author guidelines with respect to the final
camera ready paper formats are to be strictly followed without
exception, including the 10 page limit.
Deadline for submissions: May 2, 2004
Notification of acceptance: July 2, 2004
Camera ready version: July 25, 2004
Workshop date: October 1, 2004
The final program will be run as a full day on October 1, 2004,
preceded by QofIS'04 on September 29-30, 2004, http://www.qofis.org.
The registration fee for this event will include the attendance of
both ICQT'04 and QoFIS'04. For more information please visit
