Workshop 07-MOSPAS

6th International Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of
Peer-to-Peer Architectures and Systems
(MOSPAS 2015)


CALL FOR PAPERS

As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2015)


July 20 – July 24, 2015
The Hilton Amsterdam Hotel
Amsterdam, The Netherlands 

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2015

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
High Performance Computing at extreme scale sets new challenges which have to be faced to guarantee fault tolerance and reliability. The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) paradigm has emerged as highly appealing, scalable solution to tackle the above issues and the growing complexity of such software and hardware technologies. While P2P solutions put the emphasis on decentralization and sharing of resources, it employs appropriate information and communication systems without the necessity for highly central coordination. These approaches are, of course, complementary and are often combined together in modern distributed systems that avoid central coordination and human intervention. The design, implementation, and analysis of these complex 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 willing to present, discuss and exchange innovative research results and advanced topics that combine theoretical and practical approaches to modeling and high performance simulation, but also modeling and simulation of high performance (extreme scale) systems.

The MOSPAS Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following
:
  • Modeling and Simulation of P2P High Performance Systems 
  • High Performance M&S
  • Formal Modeling and Analysis and Formal Characterization of P2P Systems
  • Discrete Event Modeling and 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
  • High Performance Fault Tolerance / Resilience at Extreme Scale
  • P2P Overlay Schemes Performance Evaluation
  • Advanced P2P Search Algorithms (Including Range, Wildcards, and Multidimensional Search)
  • Analysis of P2P-based Architectures, Applications and Services
  • P2P Workload Characterization and Simulation
  • Analysis of Emergent Behaviors in P2P Systems
  • Evaluation of Hybrid Systems (Client/Server Combined with P2P)
  • Security in P2P Systems: Availability, Access Control, Integrity
  • Evaluation of Trust and Reputation Systems
  • Countermeasures Against Free-Riding in P2P Networks
  • Verification at Runtime of P2P Systems
  • Real-Time Aspects, including Timing Violations for Multimedia and Other Real-Time Traffic
  • Analysis of novel network services supporting P2P such as RELOAD and ALTO
  • Impact of P2P Traffic on the Network Infrastructure     
  • Green P2P Computing

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Peer to Peer Architectures and Systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please  submit  a PDF copy  of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged  additional  fee.  Submission should include a cover page with  authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s).  Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and poster (please refer to  http://hpcs2015.cisedu.info/home/cts-2015-posters  for posters submission details) will also be accepted.  Please specify the type of submission you have. 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 using the Workshop EasyChair web site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mospas2015.  Submissions will be acknowledged within 48 hours.  

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the link above.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity, and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2015 conference to present the paper at the workshop. 

PROCEEDINGS
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2015 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

Plans are underway to have the best accepted papers be selected for possible publication in a journal special issue(s). Detailed information will soon be announced, and will be made available on the conference website. 

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