Call for Papers

MASCOTS 2009 seeks original technical papers describing research in the areas of computer systems and network performance evaluation. The scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:

 Computer Architecture

 Distributed/Parallel Systems

 Computer Networks

 Heterogeneous Systems

 Industrial Practice and Experience

 Internetworking Protocols

 Multi-core Systems

 Multimedia Systems

 Performance Evaluation Methodologies

Submissions may be up to 10 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column conference style with font size no less than 10 point (see the submission page for more details). All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in any other conference or journal. Accepted papers for MASCOTS 2009 will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society. Authors of highly-ranked papers may be invited to submit extended versions of their work to appropriate IEEE or ACM journals.



Posters provide a forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent work, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. Material submitted as a full paper may also be submitted as a poster paper; if the full paper is accepted the poster will not be considered. Poster paper submissions may be up to two pages in length, excluding references, formatted as for regular papers. Accepted poster papers will be allocated up to three pages in the conference proceedings.
