3rd International Workshop on
Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of Peer-to-peer Environments

MSOP2P 2009

In conjunction with Euromicro PDP 2009
Weimar, Germany
February 18-20, 2009

Scope of the workshop

The algorithms and methods of Peer-to-Peer (p2p) technology are often applied to networks and services with a high demand for scalability. The huge
number of peers, the state space, as well as the interactions and relationships between peers and states often makes an analytical description
intractable. Discrete event simulation is a tool which is able to incorporate all interactions and parameters and may reflect reality as accurately
as possible. Large scale simulations, however, also require sufficient memory capacities and often exceed the available computational power. It might
already be a problem just to keep the states of the peers in the main memory.

The 3rd 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 also offers the opportunity to discuss different techniques to make p2p simulations scalable, to debate the advantages and disadvantages of
a simulation on packet level or on application level, and to compare analytical models as well as emulations to results gained by simulation. The
general venue will be a good occasion to share, to learn, and to discuss the latest results in this field of research.

Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: August 1, 2008
Notification of acceptance: October 15, 2008
Camera ready papers due: October 23, 2008
Conference: February 18-20, 2009

Submission Details

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. This approximately
corresponds to 8 double column pages in IEEE style. 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. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper
at the Conference.
Papers submitted for the workshops or special sessions must be submitted through the PDP 2009 submission system with an indication of the name of the
workshop/special session. Papers must adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review process as other papers
submitted to the conference.
