International Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of
Peer-to-Peer Architectures and Systems
Call for Papers
As part of
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
In Conjunction With
The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)
July 4 – 8, 2011
(Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011)
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The peer-to-peer (P2P) paradigm has emerged as a highly appealing solution for scalable and high-throughput resource sharing among decentralized computational entities. This is achieved by employing appropriate information and communication systems without the necessity for central coordination. The design, implementation, and analysis of P2P systems pose several challenges, both with functional and non-functional properties, depending on network size, churn rate and application context. This workshop has the goal of providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners in all P2P modeling and simulation areas, to present, discuss and exchange highly innovative research results and advanced topics that mix theory and practice.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Peer to Peer architectures and systems modeling and simulation. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at michele.amoretti[a]unipr.it and max.walter[a]tum.de.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
International Program Committee:
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the workshop technical program committee members following similar criteria used in HPCS 2011.
