Skip Abstract Section


With great pleasure, we welcome you to the 2020 ACM symposium on QoS and Security for Wireless and Mobile Networks (ACM Q2SWinet 2020). This year edition was initially planned to be held at Alicante (Spain), but unfortunately, due to Covid-19 pandemic, we moved to remote meeting through video-conferencing tools. Despite this world-wide pandemic situation, Q2SWinet is still attracting academic and industrial interest and confirmed its place as a known meeting point for exchanging ideas, sharing experiences and discussing solutions among researches and professionals. This year's edition proposes an exciting program covering broad issues on QoS and security in wireless and mobile networked systems as well as in IoT systems.

The call for paper attracted submissions from Europe (France, Italy, etc.), North America (USA and Canada), South America (Brazil, etc.), Asia (China, etc.) and Africa as well, which demonstrate the international dimension of the symposium. The program committee reviewed all papers and accepted 17 technical papers for presentation, which represents an acceptance ratio of 27%.
