Welcome to IEEE CQR 2021
The 35th IEEE International Workshop on Communications Quality and Reliability will be held virtually. The workshop will offer technical sessions, original paper presentations, and keynotes panels designed to further career opportunities and the in-depth understanding of key issues impacting communications networks quality and reliability.
Bridging the Digital Divide – Quality, Reliability and Secure Access for All
For the 2021 edition, the workshop will identify problems and solutions to bring quality, reliable, and secure access to the under-served in rural and urban areas. The problems and solutions will be discussed from three perspectives – Reachability, Equity and Extensibility.
