About QSHINE 2021

Heterogeneous networking has long been the focus of computer network and communications researchers worldwide. Since 2004, QSHINE has been established as the primary venue for researchers and practitioners to present novel ideas on heterogeneous networking related subjects, particularly for quality, experience, reliability, security and robustness of heterogeneous networking. QSHINE 2021 sets the goal to be a high-quality conference and an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The scope of QSHINE 2021 covers both newest theoretical and practical research topics to address the challenges from both the trending application requirements and the communication technologies.

Original submissions, not under any concurrent reviews, are solicited in all areas related to heterogeneous wired, wireless and hybrid networks varying from network theories and models, emerging networks and applications, network heterogeneous computing, signal and data processing, security and privacy in networks, and artificial intelligence and machine learning in networks.
