This is the eighth of a series of workshops providing an international forum for the exchange of information on quality of service (QoS) research in all the facets of QoS in a networked or distributed environment, including architectures, services, multimedia, operating systems and middleware. The objective of the Eighth International Workshop on Quality of Service is to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners working in all these areas to discuss recent innovative results and future directions. Besides soliciting contributions in all areas of QoS research in distributed systems and networking, we would like to place special emphasis this year on papers reporting experience in developing and using applications that use QoS-enabled systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:
