MOSPAS 2013 - 4th International Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Peer-to-Peer and Autonomic Systems (MOSPAS 2013)

Date2013-07-01 - 2013-07-05


VenueHelsinki, Finland Finland



Topics/Call fo Papers

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Autonomic Computing (AC) paradigms have emerged as highly appealing, scalable solutions to tackle the growing complexity of software and hardware systems. While P2P solutions put the emphasis on decentralization and sharing of resources, AC solutions are based on equipping computational entities with autonomic (self-*) features. Both approaches are of course complementary and are often combined together in modern distributed systems that avoid central coordination and human intervention. The design, implementation, and analysis of such complex systems pose several challenges, both with functional and non-functional properties, depending on network size, churn rate and application context. This workshop has the goal of providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners willing to present, discuss and exchange highly innovative research results and advanced topics that combine theoretical and practical approaches to modeling and high performance simulation of P2P and Autonomic systems.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Formal Models in P2P and Autonomic Systems
DEVS Modeling of P2P and Autonomic Systems
Discrete Event Simulation of P2P and Autonomic Systems
Agent-based Simulation
Formal Verification
Novel Techniques for M&S
M&S-Based Development Methods
Overlay Schemes
Advanced Knowledge Dissemination and Discovery
Design and Analysis of Applications and Services
Analysis of Performance and Robustness of Architectures
Workload Characterization and Simulation
Analysis of Emergent Behaviors

Evaluation of Consistency
Evaluation of Hybrid Systems (e.g., combination of P2P and AC with Client/Server Architectures)
Security aspects (e.g. Availability, Access Control, Integrity, Trust, Reputation)
Monitoring and countermeasures for unfair behaviors (e.g. Free-Riding in P2P Networks)
Real-Time Aspects, including Timing Violations for Multimedia and Other Real-Time Traffic
Analysis of novel network services supporting P2P such as ALTO and LEDBAT
