Call For Papers


Workshop on MOdeling and Simulation of
Peer-to-Peer Architectures and Systems (MOSPAS 2011)

As part of The International Conference on
High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2011)

In conjunction with The 7th International
Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)
July 4 - July 8, 2011
Istanbul, Turkey


January 11, 2011


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:

- Formal Characterization of P2P Systems
- DEVS Modeling of P2P Systems
- Discrete Event Simulation of P2P Systems
- Agent-based Simulation of P2P Systems
- Novel Techniques for M&S of P2P Systems
- M&S-Based Development Methods Targeting P2P Systems
- P2P Overlay Schemes
- Advanced P2P Search Algorithms (Including Range, Wildcards, and
Multidimensional Search)
- Design and Analysis of P2P Applications and Services
- Analysis of Performance and Robustness of P2P Architectures
- P2P Workload Characterization and Simulation
- Analysis of Emergent Behaviors in P2P Systems
- Measurement and Discovery of Real-world P2P Topologies
- Evaluation of Consistency in P2P Systems
- Evaluation of Hybrid Systems (Client/Server Combined with P2P)
- Security in P2P Systems: Availability, Access Control, Integrity
- Countermeasures Against Free-Riding in P2P Networks
- Timing Violations for Multimedia and Other Real-Time Traffic in
P2P Overlays
- Analysis of novel network services supporting P2P such as ALTO and LEDBAT
- Impact of P2P Traffic on the Network Infrastructure
- Green P2P Computing


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

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.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the organizers.
