We kindly welcome you to the 17th ACM International Symposium on QoS and Security for Wireless and Mobile Networks (Q2SWinet’21). This year, Q2SWinet will exceptionally be held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, on November 22nd to November 26th, 2021.
The Q2SWinet 2021 Symposium aims at serving as a meeting point and a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers, professionals, application developers, and practitioners from institutions around the world. As with the previous sixteen editions of the Q2SWinet symposium series, the scope of this year’s Symposium will remain on general issues related to QoS and security in wireless and mobile networks networking and computing.
The call for papers has attracted a large number of high-quality submissions worldwide. Every paper submitted had been peer-reviewed by at least three referees from the Technical Program Committee. The featured papers span from a wide range of topics related to multimedia content delivery and video streaming, 5G and wireless networks, fog computing, and Internet of Things.
We would like to thank the authors for their contributions and the Technical Program Committee members that reviewed the submitted papers and provided valuable feedback for authors. Special thanks go to who hardly worked for the technical excellence and success of the event: Constantinos Marios Angelopoulos and Georgios Kambourakis (Special Sessions Co-Chairs), Mirela Notare and Antonio Loureiro (Tutorial Co-Chair), and Peng Sun (Poster/Demo Chair). We would further like to thank the Steering Committee for their guidance and support with the advice during the planning of the symposium, and ACM production of the proceedings. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors, ACM and ACM SIGSIM for their continued support of these successful symposia.
We hope that you will find this technical program interesting and that the symposium will provide you with a valuable opportunity to share ideas with other researchers and practitioners from institutions around the world.
