The Fourth Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Services

Collocated with:

SITIS 2017 - 
The 13th International Conference on 
December 4-7, 2017, Jaipur, India

Organized by
Mohammed El Hassouni, Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco
Hocine Cherifi, University of Burgundy, Dijon, France

Scope of the Workshop
Today, there is an explosion of multimedia data production and
consumption, through a multitude of new services in our connected
world. The way users perceive the quality of these services is
critical for the content providers and consumers. It is therefore
necessary to relate the user centric perspective to the service's
Perceptual Quality and QoE (Quality of Experience) to the
network-level QoS (Quality of Service). This workshop is dedicated to
the relationship between QoS, Perceptual Quality and QoE in
general. It will bring together researchers from academia and
industry, to identify and discuss technical challenges, exchange novel
ideas, explore enabling technologies, and report latest research

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

    QoE relation and mapping to QoS
    QoE-driven network and service management
    Network QoS and QoE modeling
    QoE and QoS for emerging pervasive applications
    QoE-aware Wireless Sensor Networks
    Integration of QoS and QoE models
    QoS and QoE correlation
    Objective QoE metrics for audiovisual and various media
    Novel subjective evaluation techniques  for assessment of QoE
    QoE evaluation methodologies for metrics
    QoE for Mobile Multimedia Devices
    QoE and Visual attention
    QoE in ubiquitous scenarios
    QoE for 3D Multimedia, web and IPTV content
    QoE metrics for novel applications (e.g. augmented reality, cloud-based online gaming)
    Standardization issue
