9th International Workshop on Internet Charging and QoS Technologies
(ICQT 2017)
Associated Workshop of CNSM 2017, November 26(-27), 2017, Tokyo, Japan
With the appearance of new technologies and new services, the nature of
the economic stakes in the ICT (Information and Communication
Technologies) sector is continually evolving. An illustration is the
soaring number of providers who base their business models on publicity
instead of bandwidth selling. Following the same tendency, the power
relationships have radically changed in the last decade, between the
providers offering connectivity, and those managing services and user
identities (content providers, cloud computing providers, social
networks). While future business models and regulatory frameworks are
still under discussion, the design of efficient charging methods for
the variety of upcoming network technologies has become of paramount
importance for realizing the economic potential of future convergent
architectures and services. The resulting combination of technical and
economic perspectives drives many relevant research topics for
application developers, business architects, network and service
providers, and customers. Especially the identification of novel
service charging solutions, the investigation and evaluation of their
technical feasibility, and the consolidation of technical and economic
mechanisms for enabling a fast, guaranteed, and efficient charging of
services is of fundamental importance for the future evolution of the
Internet and the telecommunications business in general, and as such the
central focus of the international ICQT workshop series.
ICQT 2017 is the ninth event in this series, following the highly
successful ICQT workshops in Vienna 2001, Zurich 2002, Munich 2003,
Barcelona 2004, St. Malo 2006, Aachen 2009, Paris 2011, and Zurich
2013. The focus of ICQT 2017 is on Telecommunication Economics from a
broad interdisciplinary perspective, concentrating on the economics of
future information and communication infrastructures as well as the
close relation between economics and technologies in support of
charging, quality-based pricing and business modelling.
Papers accepted and presented at ICQT 2017 will be published open
access on the conference Web site with IFIP copyright, and will be
submitted for possible inclusion in IEEE Xplore, ACM and IFIP Digital
