Special Session on:

Network Simulation and Performance Analysis: Practice and Theory


This session is a forum for professionals and researchers involved in
performance evaluation of computer networks and telecommunication systems.
Performance analysis and evaluation of computer systems and networks is
needed for understanding system behavior and the analysis of innovative
proposals. The research in the field of performance evaluation has
progressed rapidly in the last years. Considerable progress has been made in
analytic modeling, simulation, and measurement approaches for performance
evaluation of computer and telecommunication systems and this work has been
made from researchers in different fields. Thus, this special session at
MSV'04 is intended to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to
present their contributions as technical papers related to architectures,
protocols and applications. Possible topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

-          Architectures and protocols for heterogeneous network

-          Wireless Networks

-          Integration of wired and wireless networks

-          Internet Technology

-          Quality of Service

-          MPLS

-          Network Protocols

-          Network Management and Control

Papers due: March 1, 2004

Notification of acceptance: March 30, 2004

Camera-ready paper due: April 21, 2004

MSV'04 Conference: June 21-24, 2004:


Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in the topical
area. The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by session chair. The chair
will check that the comments provided by the reviewers' have been
incorporated in the revised text and that the revised paper follows the
formatting rules. The chair will get back to you directly in case there are
additional changes that need to be made.


The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN) in
hardcopy. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Some accepted
papers will also be considered for journal publication (soon after the
conference). All conference proceedings published by CSREA Press are
considered for inclusion in major database indexes that are designed to
provide easy access to the current literature of the sciences (database
examples: ISI Thomson Scientific, IEE INSPEC, DBLP, ...). After the
conference, some sessions will be considered for publication in appropriate
journals as Special Issues with the session chair as the Guest Editor of the

Session Chair:

The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort hotel, Las Vegas,
Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). The Monte Carlo
Resort is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities & over 3,000
rooms. The hotel is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to
& from the airport. This hotel has many recreational attractions, including:
waterfalls, spa, pools & kiddies pools, sunning decks, Easy River water
ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis courts, health spa (with
workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game
rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping area,
bars, ... Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a day & most are
suitable for families & children. The negotiated room rate for conference
attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within walking distance from most
other attractions (major shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine
dining & night clubs, free street shows, ...).
