Call For Papers



5th International Workshop on
Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of Peer-to-peer Environments

MSOP2P 2011

In conjunction with Euromicro PDP 2011
Grecian Bay Hotel, Ayia Napa, Cyprus
February 9-11, 2011


Scope of the workshop

The algorithms and methods of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology are often applied
to networks and services with a high demand for scalability. The huge number
of peers, the state space, as well as the interactions and relationships
between peers and states often make an analytical description intractable.
Discrete event simulation is a tool which is able to incorporate all
interactions and parameters and may reflect reality as accurately as possible.
Large scale simulations, however, also require sufficient memory capacities
and often exceed the available computational power. It might already be a
problem just to keep the states of the peers in the main memory.

The 5th International Workshop on Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of
Peer-to-peer environments (MSOP2P 2011) aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and government to advance the state of
the art in modeling, simulating and optimizing P2P environments. The workshop
also offers the opportunity to discuss different techniques to make P2P
simulations scalable, to debate the advantages and disadvantages of a
simulation at the packet level or at the application level, and to compare
analytical models as well as emulations to results gained by simulation. The
general venue will be a good occasion to share, to learn, and to discuss the
latest results in this field of research.


* Modeling of P2P systems
* Performance evaluation of P2P systems

* Algorithms for computing and performance implications in P2P environments
* Analytical modeling of Peer-to-Peer systems
* Quantitative analysis of Peer-to-Peer infrastructure and overlay networks
* Emulation of P2P systems
* Protocols for resource management/discovery/reservation/scheduling
* Workload characterization for P2P systems

Important Dates

Deadline for paper submission: August 30th, 2010
Acceptance notification: October 4th, 2010
Camera ready paper due: October 29th, 2010
Conference: February 9-11th, 2011

Submission Details

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in
length and including a 150-200 word abstract. This approximately corresponds
to 8 double column pages in IEEE style. Proceedings will be published by IEEE
Computer Society. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and
present the paper at the Conference. Papers submitted for the workshops or
special sessions must be submitted through the PDP 2011 submission system with
an indication of the name of the workshop/special session. Papers must adhere
to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review
process as other papers submitted to the conference.
