*** Scope and Topics

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, and is

sponsored* by the IEEE and in technical cooperation with the ACM SIGSIM*.
The 20th edition of this conference will take place August 7-9, 2012 in
the Virginia Tech Arilington Research Center, located in the Washington DC
metropolitan area. 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 posters.

We encourage researchers world-wide to submit original technical papers
describing their latest research work in the areas of:

- Measurement studies;

- Performance evaluation methodologies;

- Industrial practice and experience; or

- Theoretical results

Topics of interest include:

- Computer Architecture

- Computer Networks

- Distributed/Parallel Systems

- Internetworking Protocols

- Multimedia Systems

- Pervasive Web and Mobility

- Sensor Networks

- Storage Systems

- Web-based Systems

- Wireless Networks

*** 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
no less than 10 point.

*** 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 will be also automatically considered for as a
work-in-progress paper where appropriate. 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.

*** Submission

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for
publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program
Committee members and other experts active in the field to ensure high
quality and relevance to the conference.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published
by IEEE press.
