First International Workshop on
Modeling, Simulation and Optimization
of Peer-to-peer environments (MSOP2P)
In conjunction with Euromicro PDP 2007
7-9 February 2007 in Naples, Italy

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems allow to gather a wide range of computers 
into a single environment. Performance of such environments is difficult 
to evaluate due to the heterogeneity and to the number of computers 
participating in the system. Therefore, modeling and simulation are now 
becoming more and more used in order to optimize the behavior of P2P 

The International Workshop on Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of 
Peer-to-peer environments (MSOP2P) aims to bring together researchers 
and practitioners from academia, industry and government to advance the 
state of the art in modeling, simulating and optimizing P2P 
environments. The workshop will also represent an occasion to share, to 
learn and to discuss the latest results in this field of research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modeling of P2P systems
* Performance evaluation of P2P systems
* Simulation of P2P systems
* Traffic management for P2P computing systems
* Algorithms for computing and performance implications in P2P environments
* Analytical modeling of Peer-to-Peer systems
* Quantitative analysis of Peer-to-Peer infrastructure and overlay networks
* Emulation of P2P systems
* Protocols for resource management/discovery/reservation/scheduling and
their evaluation
* Workload characterization for P2P systems
