June 28 - July 2, 2010
Caen, France

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)

Extended Full Paper Submission Deadline: February 28, 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 :
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Peer to Peer architectures and systems modeling and simulation.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  michele.amoretti[a]unipr.it. 

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 meeting. 

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 ).
