IEEE MASCOTS 2018 : 26th IEEE International Symposium on the Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems
Call For Papers
The 26th IEEE International Symposium on the Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems (MASCOTS)
Sept 25 - 28, 2018, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
The IEEE MASCOTS conference encourages original submissions describing state-of-the-art research in the areas of the performance evaluation of computer systems and networks as well as in related areas and emerging technologies such as nano-networks, energy networks and the smart grid, and advanced machine learning techniques for performance analysis and management.
Papers describing results of theoretic and/or practical significance are solicited. Experimental, modeling, and simulation studies are all in the scope of the conference. Work presenting novel performance evaluation methods or providing insights on design and runtime management tradeoffs are particularly encouraged.
Broad topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Advanced machine learning techniques.
Computer architectures, multi-core processors, and memory systems
Computer networks, protocols, and algorithms
Databases and big data systems and technologies
Distributed and cloud computing
Data and control plane separation
Blockchain-based system design
Energy efficient computer systems
Internet of Things
Operating systems and virtualization
Security in computer and communication systems
Storage and file systems
Web systems, enterprise applications and web services
Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks
Submissions must be formatted using two-columns and may be at most 12 pages in length, including all tables, figures, and appendices, but not including references. You may include any number of pages for references. Unsuccessful full paper submissions, where appropriate, will automatically be considered for publication as short papers.
Authors with a contribution for which a full paper is not appropriate may submit short papers of at most 6 pages, not including references, with the same formatting guidelines as full papers. You may include any number of pages for references. Short papers may describe original or unconventional ideas at a preliminary stage of development, negative results, experimental validations, or original results that do not require a full-length paper.
Abstract submission deadline: April 30, 2018
Paper submission deadline: May 02, 2018
Acceptance Notification: June 9, 2018
Final Camera-ready: July 7, 2018
