Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems allow to gather a wide range of computers into a single environment. Performance of such environments is difficult to evaluate due to the heterogeneity and to the number of computers participating in the system. Therefore, modeling and simulation are now becoming more and more used in order to optimize the behavior of P2P environments.

The International Workshop on Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Peer-to-peer environments (MSOP2P) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to advance the state of the art in modeling, simulating and optimizing P2P environments. The workshop will also represent an occasion to share, to learn and to discuss the latest results in this field of research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modeling of P2P systems
* Performance evaluation of P2P systems
* Simulation of P2P systems
* Traffic management for P2P computing systems
* Algorithms for computing and performance implications in P2P environments
* Analytical modeling of Peer-to-Peer systems
* Quantitative analysis of Peer-to-Peer infrastructure and overlay networks
* Emulation of P2P systems
* Protocols for resource management/discovery/reservation/scheduling and
their evaluation
* Workload characterization for P2P systems

MSOP2P workshop

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract. Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Best papers will be selected for special issues of Elsevier Journal of Systems Architecture and InderScience International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering.
Papers must be submitted through the conference submission system ( with an indication of the name of the workshop.
