Workshop on QoS Support for Real-Time Internet Applications

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
June 1, 1999

In conjunction with the 5th IEEE Real-Time Technology and Applications Symposium

Advance Program and Call For Participation


The Internet is increasingly being used to support a wide range of applications that are subject to QoS constraints for proper operation. This 1-day workshop (preceding the 1999 IEEE RTAS'99 Symposium) aims at bringing together researchers interested in the design and implementation of novel protocols and architectures to support the requirements of such applications in the context of the existing ubiquitous infrastructure of the Internet.

The Workshop consists of four main sessions on Differentiated Services, Routing and Channel Access, QoS Estimation and Adaptation, and Resource Allocation and Integration. Each of the sessions will feature a set of technical presentations to be followed by a discussion. The Workshop Proceedings, which will be distributed to all Workshop attendees, will include all presentations as well as a set of Project Summaries and Position Statements from Workshop participants.
