Welcome to ICST QShine 2008


The Fifth International ICST Conference on Heterogeneous Networking for Quality, Reliability, Security and Robustness


Recent technological developments in wireless communications and mobile networks, broadband networks, pervasive computing, and distributed computing have led to a wide variety of new challenging problems. These include the provisioning of Quality of Service (QoS), survivability, resilience and scalability in a wide range of emerging applications and services over large-scale wired and wireless networks.

The Fifth International Conference on Heterogeneous Networking for Quality, Reliability, Security and Robustness (QShine 2008) will focus on the research challenges associated the design and implementation of large-scale wired and wireless networks and distributed systems. The aim of this conference is to bring together research and practitioners to present and share the latest results in the areas of performance, configuration, cross-layer approaches, scalability, resilience and survivability of large scale heterogeneous networks and distributed systems. Following the tradition of the previous QShine meetings, QShine 2008 will feature prominent invited speakers as well as papers by top researchers in the field.

Research papers of particular merit will be selected for consideration of fast track publication in a ACM/Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (approved). Moreover, some selected papers will be considered for publication in special issue on "Heterogeneous Networking for Quality, Reliability, Security, and Robustness" of Elsevier Computer Communications.
