Conference Location
Call For Papers
The MASCOTS conference encourages original submissions describing state-of-the-art research in the areas of the performance evaluation of computer systems and networks.

Papers describing results of theoretic and/or practical significance are solicited. Experimental, modeling, and simulation studies are all in the scope of the conference. Work presenting novel performance evaluation methods or providing insights on design and runtime management tradeoffs are particularly encouraged.

Broad topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    Big data and machine learning techniques for performance analysis and management
    Computer architectures, multi-core processors, and memory systems
    Computer networks, protocols, and algorithms
    Databases and big data systems and technologies
    Distributed and cloud computing
    Energy efficient computer systems
    Mobile systems
    Multimedia systems
    Operating systems and virtualization
    Security in computer and communication systems
    Smart grids and cyber-physical systems
    Social networks
    Storage and file systems
    Web systems, enterprise applications and web services
    Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks 

Full Papers:

Submissions must be formatted using two-columns and may be at most 10 pages in length, including all tables and figures but not including references. You may include any number of pages for references. Unsuccessful full paper submissions, where appropriate, will automatically be considered for publication as short papers.

Short Papers:

Authors with a contribution for which a full paper is not appropriate may submit short papers of at most 6 pages, not including references, with the same formatting guidelines as full papers. You may include any number of pages for references. Short papers may describe original or unconventional ideas at a preliminary stage of development, negative results, experimental validations, or original results that do not require a full-length paper.


Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for publication elsewhere.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.

For guidelines regarding formatting, please refer to the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. All papers must be formatted using the two-column IEEE conference style IEEE conference style with a font size of 10 points or greater.

MASCOTS 2017 is using the HotCRP conference management system. Please submit manuscripts conforming to the guidelines given above.
