Scope and Motivation

Communication networks are designed to provide service to their users with acceptable quality level. For that, network traffic should be analyzed and properly controlled so that the desired Quality of Service requirements of applications and Services are achieved. The diversity of applications characteristics and current network technologies demand specific modelling and design tools. Moreover, different techniques including analytical modelling, simulation, measurement and monitoring are required in order to support design and dimensioning of communication networks and services.

The aim of the “Communications QoS, Reliability and Performance Modelling” Symposium is to provide an international venue for the discussion of communications service provisioning, the quality and mechanisms to support such services as well as the techniques to model and analyze the performance and the design of communication networks. Authors are invited to submit original technical papers covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below:
