I'm usually not a great fan of the CFP spam on this list. But this
workshop really could be of some interest to the users of simgrid, I
think. And the fact that I'm in the committee is of course not biasing
at all my objectivity here ;)

Bye, Mt.

                    CALL FOR PAPERS

  6th International Workshop on Modeling, Simulation,
     and Optimization of Peer-to-peer Environments

                      MSOP2P 2012

          Special track of Euromicro PDP 2012
 Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), Garching, Germany
                  February 15-17, 2012


	Deadline for submission: July 25, 2011

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 6th International Workshop on Modeling, Simulation, and
Optimization of Peer-to-peer environments (MSOP2P) aims at
bringing 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

Deadline for paper submission: July 25, 2011
Acceptance notification: October 10, 2011
Camera ready paper due: November 11, 2011
Conference: February 15-17th, 2012

Paper Submission

Papers can be submitted through the EasyChair conference
submission system
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2012 with an
indication of the name of the Special Session MSOP2P. Papers
will undergo a double blind peer review process. 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.
Moreover, the names of the authors of the paper must not
appear in citations in the reference section. All accepted
papers will be included in the same volume, published by the
IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services
(CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission
Instructions will be published after the notification of
