The 6th Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Services Call for Papers


The 6th Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Services

Collocated with:
SITIS 2019 - The 15th International Conference on SIGNAL IMAGE TECHNOLOGY & INTERNET BASED SYSTEMS
26-29 November 2019 - Sorrento, Italy

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

Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All
submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at
least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make
final paper selections.


All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the SITIS
conference proceedings, published by IEEE Computer Society. Content
will be submitted to the indexing companies (Scopus, DBLP, etc.) as in
previous conference editions. The conference proceedings will be
available at the conference.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
workshop. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single
