International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Computer and
Telecommunication Systems
August 14-16, 2013, San Francisco, CA, USA

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 21st edition of this conference will
take place August 14-16, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. The conference will
bring together academics and industry practitioners to present and discuss
their latest research results. The technical program for the 3-day conference
will include keynote talks, refereed full and work-in-progress papers, and

We encourage original submissions describing state-of-the-art research in
the areas of computer networks and performance evaluation of computer
systems. The MASCOTS conference encourages papers describing results
of theoretic and/or practical significance. Papers presenting new performance
evaluation methods or those applying existing methods to provide new
insights to design trade-offs in computer and networked systems are
particularly encouraged. Broad topics of interest include:
• Computer architectures, multi-core processors, and memory systems
• Computer networks, protocols, and algorithms
• Distributed and cloud computing
• Energy efficient computer systems
• Operating systems, file systems, and databases
• Mobile systems
• Multimedia systems
• Smart grids
• Social networks
• Storage systems and networks
• Web-based systems and services
• Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under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 by at least one author is mandatory.

We invite both full and work-in-progress papers as described below.
Full Papers: Submissions may be up to 10 pages in length (including
figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style
with font size 10 point or greater.
Work-in-Progress Papers: Work-in-progress papers provide a
peer-reviewed forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results,
giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and
demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their
peers in an informal setting. Unsuccessful full paper submissions,
where appropriate, will automatically be considered for publication
as a work-in-progress paper.
Work-in-progress paper submissions may be up to 3 pages in length
(including figures and references), with the option of purchasing one
extra page upon acceptance, formatted in two-column IEEE conference
style with font size 10 point or greater.

Abstracts submission deadline: March 22, 2013
Papers submission deadline: April 8, 2013
Author notification due: June 8, 2013
Camera ready due: June 22, 2013
