The purpose of QofIS 2004 is to present and discuss design and implementation techniques for providing quality of service in the Internet. The impact of emerging terminals, mobility and embedded systems will create a new environment where networks will be ambient. New challenges are open by this new space where networks of interest ranging from personal networks to large-scale application networks will need to be designed and often integrated. Protocol mechanisms for supporting quality of service at the different layers of the networks will need to be assessed and eventually redesigned in such environments. The focus of this year’s workshop is on the provisioning of Quality of Service in the Emerging Networking Panorama, assessed by results of experiments carried out in simulation platforms and test-beds, and given the progressive irruption of optical technologies.

This workshop, at its fifth international event, is organized under the umbrella of the E-NEXT Network of Excellence on “Emerging Networking Experiments and Technologies”, which will start early in 2004.

Along with presentations of papers and keynote speeches, QofIS 2004 will offer two one day workshops on October 1, namely the First International Workshop on QoS Routing (WQoSR’04) and the Fourth International Workshop on Internet Charging and QoS Technology (ICQT’04).
