MASCOTS 2016 : Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation On Computer and Telecommunication Systems
Conference Series : Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation On Computer and Telecommunication Systems
Call For Papers
MASCOTS 2016, September 21-23, Imperial College, London, UK
The MASCOTS conference is a well-established forum for state-of-the-art research on the measurement, modeling, and performance analysis of computer systems and networks. The 24th edition of this conference will take place september 21-23, 2016 in Imperial College Campus, London. The conference will bring together academics and industry practitioners to present and discuss their latest research results. The technical program for the 3-day conference will include keynote talks, refereed full and work-in-progress papers.
The MASCOTS conference encourages original submissions describing state-of-the-art research in the areas of the performance evaluation of computer systems and networks networks, as well as in related areas and emerging technologies and new areas such as nano-networks, social networks, energy networks and the smart grid, the use of Big Data for performance analysis, machine learning techniques for performance analysis and management, and the Cloud. Papers describing results of both theoretical and practical significance are solicited. Measurements and experimental results, and simulation studies are all both in the scope of the conference. Work presenting novel performance evaluation methods or providing insights on the design and runtime management tradeoffs are also encouraged.
Broad topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the performance of:
Computer architectures, multi-core processors, and memory systems
Computer networks, protocols, and algorithms
Databases and Big Data technologies
Big Data for computer and network management
Distributed and Cloud computing
Energy efficient computer systems
Operating systems and virtualization
Smart grids and cyber-physical systems
Storage and file systems
Web systems, enterprise applications and web services
Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks
Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for publication elsewhere. Technical Program Committee members and other experts active in the field will review submitted papers to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference program. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by IEEE press. For accepted papers, attendance by at least one author is mandatory. We invite both full and work-in-progress papers as described below. Full Papers: Submissions may be up to 6 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 point or greater. Work-in-progress papers provide a peer-reviewed forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. Unsuccessful full paper submissions, where appropriate, will automatically be considered for publication as a work-in-progress paper. Work-in-progress paper submissions may be up to 3 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style with font size 10 point or greater.
