5th International Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of
Peer-to-Peer and Autonomic Systems
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2014)
July 21 – July 25, 2014
The Savoia Hotel Regency
Extended Submission Deadline: March 28, 2014
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) and Autonomic Computing (AC) paradigms have emerged as highly appealing, scalable solutions 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, AC solutions are based on equipping computational entities with autonomic (self-*) features. 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 & Autonomic High Performance Systems
High Performance M&S
Formal Modeling and Analysis
Discrete Event Modeling and Simulation
Novel Techniques for M&S
M&S-Based Development Methods
High Performance Fault Tolerance / Resilience at Extreme Scale
Evaluation of Combined P2P and AC Systems
Overlay Schemes Performance Evaluation
Analysis of P2P/AC-based Applications and Services
Workload Characterization and Simulation
Analysis of Emergent Behaviors
Evaluation of Trust and Reputation Systems
Verification at Runtime of AC 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
INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Peer to Peer and autonomic 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://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/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=mospas2014. 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 20144 conference to present the paper at the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2014 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.
