IEEE ComSoc International Communications Quality and Reliability Workshop
13 May 2021 // Virtual Conference

Call For Papers

The IEEE International CQR (Communications Quality and Reliability) Workshop is held annually with the purpose of bringing together industry and academic experts to present and discuss communications quality, reliability and security issues as they relate to real world issues. The output from the workshops adds to the community’s body of knowledge and serves to inform, to help form opinion, and to assist in the development of best practice and relevant standards.

Continuing the tradition of this series of workshops, CQR 2021 will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and academia to exchange ideas and present results of ongoing research in the areas listed below. You are invited to submit a paper related to various aspects of QoS and Reliability for the following networks/services, but are not limited to:

  • Grid and Distributed Cloud Computing
  • Software Defined Networks
  • Network Function Virtualization
  • Data Center Networks
  • Information-Centric Networking
  • Vehicular Networks
