Call For Papers

Workshop on MOdeling and Simulation of Peer-to-Peer Architectures and Systems
(MOSPAS 2010)

As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2010)
In conjunction with
The 6th International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010)

June 28 - July 2, 2010
Caen, Normandy, France

Submission Deadline: February 15, 2010

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 recent
innovative research results and advanced topics that mix theory and
practice. It explores the potentials of P2P systems and addresses
current existing challenges and future directions.

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
* Reliability, availability and survivability of P2P systems
* M&S-Based Development Methods Targeting P2P Systems
* P2P Overlay Schemes
* 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

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on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 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 400 words. The full
manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format.
Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Please include page
numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide
helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email
to the Workshop organizer 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 available at the time of the

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and
present the paper in the workshop. Accepted papers will be given
guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

All accepted papers are expected to be published as ISBN proceedings by
the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library (EI indexing).
