***************************************************************************************

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
- Distributed ledger and other blockchain-based system design
- Distributed, cloud, and fog computing
- Energy efficient computer systems
- Internet of Things
- Multi-access edge computing
- Multimedia systems
- Network softwarization and virtualization
- 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

Submission Guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal
or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Full papers: 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.

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
(https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html). 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 anonymise submissions, since MASCOTS
does not use a double-blind reviewing process (only single-blind).

A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of
their paper to a Special Issue in the Performance Evaluation journal (after the conference).
