Purpose of this secial session
In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the use of multimedia applications over the Internet. Nowadays video streaming accounts for a large fraction of all bandwidth used, and Internet Telephony and IP-based teleconferencing systems have become part of our daily lives.
The way users perceive the quality of these services is critical both for the users themselves and for the content and service providers. In turn, the quality of these services depends strongly on the underlying transport network and its performance. It is therefore very important to understand how the network-level QoS (Quality of Service) is related to the services' Perceptual Quality and QoE (Quality of Experience), and conversely, how can the latter be exploited in order to improve the performance of the networks and services that run on them.
This Special Session will focus on the relationship between QoS, Perceptual Quality and QoE in general. We welcome submissions on the following topics:
- QoS to QoE mappings
- QoE-driven Network Management
- Cross-layer optimization
- Network QoS and QoE modeling
- Integration of QoS and QoE models
- Standardization issues
