Today, there is an explosion of multimedia data production and consumption, through a multitude of new services in our connected world.The way users perceive the quality of these services is critical for the content providers and consumers.It is therefore necessary to relate the user centric perspective to the service’s Perceptual Quality and QoE (Quality of Experience) to the network-level QoS (Quality of Service). This workshop is dedicated to the relationship between QoS, Perceptual Quality and QoE in general. It willbringtogetherresearchersfromacademia and industry, to identify and discusstechnical challenges, exchange novelideas, explore enabling technologies, and report latestresearch efforts.

• Network QoS and QoE modeling
• QoE and QoS for emerging pervasive applications
• QoE-aware Wireless Sensor Networks
• Integration of QoS and QoE models
• QoS and QoE correlation
• Objective QoE metrics for audiovisual and various media
• Novel subjective evaluation techniques for assessment of QoE
• QoE evaluation methodologies for metrics
• QoE for Mobile Multimedia Devices
• QoE and Visual attention
• QoE in ubiquitous scenarios
• QoE for 3D Multimedia, web and IPTV content
• QoE metrics for novel applications (e.g. augmented reality, cloud-based online gaming).
