This paper presents a summary of the fifth International Workshop on Quality of Service (IWQOS) which was held at Columbia University in May 1997. The goal of this three-day meeting was to foster interaction between researchers active in the area of Quality of Service(QOS) research, to reflect on past experiences and lessons learnt, and to discuss future QOS challenges. To reflect this goal, this year's workshop included a hot program made up of (i) a keynote address on "Programming Telecommunications Networks"; (ii) panels addressing "QOS for Distributed Object Computing Middleware --- Fact or Fiction?" and "Reservations about Reservations"; (iii) a workshop invited paper entitled, "Quality of Service --- Where are we?" and (iv) ten technical sessions that included new topics for IWQOS such as mobile communications, QOS routing and QOS-based transport systems. This report summarizes the technical program and captures the main themes and major areas of discussion that emerged during IWQOS'97.
