The 22nd IEEE International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems (MASCOTS 2014)

Sep 9, 2014 – Sep 11, 2014

Paris, France

The MASCOTS conference is a well-established forum for state-of-the-art research on the measurement, modeling, and performance analysis of computer systems and networks. The 22nd edition of this conference will take place September 9–11, 2014 in Paris, France. The conference will bring together academics and industry practitioners to present and discuss their latest research results. The technical program for the three-day conference will include keynote talks, refereed full and work-in-progress papers, posters, demo papers and tutorials.

We encourage original submissions describing research that advances the state of the art in the areas of computer networks and performance evaluation of computer systems in the era of big data. The MASCOTS conference encourages papers describing results both of theoretic and practical significance. Papers presenting new performance evaluation methods or those applying existing methods to provide new insights into design trade-offs for computer and networked systems are particularly encouraged.

Broad topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Computer Architecture
  • Computer Networks
  • Database performance
  • Distributed/Parallel Systems for Large Scale Intensive Data
  • High Performance big data analysis
  • Industrial Practice and Experience
  • Internetworking Protocols
  • Multimedia Systems
  • Performance Evaluation Methodologies
  • Performance on Web Services and Cloud Computing
  • Pervasive Web and Mobility
  • Sensor and Wireless Networks
  • Social network
  • Security and privacy
  • Storage Systems
  • Web-based Systems
  • Submissions guidelines

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for publication elsewhere. Technical Program Committee members and other experts active in the field will review submitted papers to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference program. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by IEEE press. For accepted papers, attendance and presentation by at least one author is mandatory. We invite both full and work-in-progress papers.
