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 as well as in related areas and emerging technologies such as nano-networks, energy networks and the smart grid, and advanced machine learning techniques for performance analysis and management.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):
- Advanced machine learning techniques.
- Computer architectures, multi-core processors, and memory systems
- Computer networks, protocols, and algorithms
- Databases and big data systems and technologies
- Distributed and cloud computing
- Data and control plane separation
- Blockchain-based system design
- Energy efficient computer systems
- Internet of Things
- Multimedia systems
- Operating systems and virtualization
- Security in computer and communication systems
- Storage and file systems
- Web systems, enterprise applications and web services
- Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc, and sensor networks
Submissions must be formatted using two-columns and may be at most 12 pages in length, including all tables, figures, and appendices, 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.
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Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for publication elsewhere.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 in IEEExplore. For accepted papers, conference registration and attendance by at least one author to present the paper 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 with a font size of 10 points or greater. There is no need to anonymize submissions, since MASCOTS does not use a double-blind reviewing process (only single-blind).
