International Workshop on Modeling,
Analysis and Simulation of Computer and
Telecommunication Systems (MASCOTS'95)

            Co-sponsored by the IEEE (Computer Society, TCCA, TCSIM)
   and Duke University
            In Cooperation with the ACM (SIGSIM, SIGARCH, SIGMETRICS),
IFIP WG 7.3, and

       January 18 -- 20, 1995
Omni Durham Hotel & Durham Civic Center (1-800-THE-OMNI)
Durham, North Carolina, USA

MASCOTS'95 is a workshop for researchers, practitioners, developers and
experts with interests in systems design, modeling, analysis, simulation,
and performance evaluation. Attendees will meet and discuss tools,
technologies, and methodologies for studying the performance of computer
and communications systems. Performance, robustness and reliability
predictions of current and future computer and communication systems are
both important and challenging. The repertoire of the contemporary system
designer must include a wide spectrum of theoretical and pragmatic tools.
This workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to meet
and discuss the spectrum of theory and application of performance

Papers that deal with these themes, both methodological and specific case
study-oriented, are solicited. We are especially interested in papers on
innovative modeling and/or simulation techniques that are expected to
survive the onslaught of technological advances and remain current for a
reasonable period of time.

The workshop will have prominent guest speakers, presentations of refereed
papers, tool and poster presentations.

Contributions to the program are invited in areas such as (but not limited
to) the following:

Advances in tools, techniques, and methodologies relating to:

  -- Performance models
  -- Discrete simulation
  -- Performance animation and visualization
  -- Trace collection and usage
  -- System tuning
  -- Application program tuning
  -- Numeric simulation and visualization techniques
  -- Analytic modeling
  -- Performability modeling
  -- Specification and validation techniques

Application and Case Studies might relate to systems such as:

  -- Parallel and distributed systems
  -- Parallel and distributed applications
  -- Computer architecture
  -- Memory hierarchies and network memory systems
  -- Database systems
  -- Massively parallel and scalable systems
  -- Telecommunication/communication systems
  -- Application systems like DSP/AI applications, expert systems,
        vision and image processing systems, robotics and control, etc.



All submissions will be blind reviewed. Put names, affiliations and
addresses for correspondence (postal and electronic) of authors on a
separate cover. Papers must not exceed 20 double-spaced pages (and will
normally be limited to 6 typeset pages when they are published). Provide
an abstract and 3-4 keywords. An author of each accepted paper is
required to attend the meeting and to present the paper.

A limited number of posters/short papers may also be admitted. For
posters, an extended abstract of maximum 4 double-spaced pages must be
submitted. Full-length papers and poster abstracts will appear in the

Send four copies of your papers, posters, to the Program Chair (Patrick
Dowd) at the address given below.

Tools accepted for presentation will be demonstrated on a computer system
or shown on a video tape. All submissions on tools must contain the
details of the necessary equipment. Send abstracts on tools to one of the
Tools Fair Chairs. Brief descriptions of selected tools including
pictures (max. 4 double-spaced page) will also appear in the proceedings.



          July 15, 1994: Deadline for submissions of papers
          July 15, 1994: Deadline for tool proposals
September 15, 1994: Notification of acceptance
    October 15, 1994: Deadline for camera-ready copy

People interested in forming special sessions should contact
the Program Chair (Patrick Dowd).
