Interests: QoS in wired and wireless IP networks; deployment of ubiquitous services and applications; engineering education
Today, QoS is undoubtedly a key element in any packet network technology. Despite of important advances in QoS in communication networks, IP QoS is still an issue that challenges the scientific community. Current networks are deeply heterogeneous as well as future networks. The IP protocol, the main piece of Internet, plays a decisive role, since has been chosen to provide the interconnection framework among the multiple existing and emerging technologies. QoS requires a study end to end by access networks and their interconnections. Service convergence and integration needs a network able to match user contracts with traffic control and traffic management in the global IP network, even when the user moves changing the access technology. Apart from original papers in basic research for providing IP end to end QoS over wired and wireless networks, this special issue also will pay special attention to papers providing studies on efficiently support applications such as voice over IP (VoIP), video streaming, music downloading and many others, and studies devoted to performance evaluation on QoS architectures for emerging networks such as IPTV, body networks and wearable networks.

All manuscripts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to the Guest Editor. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first few issues, to be published in 2009 and 2010, the Article Processing Charges (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
