Propose a Mini Symposium

The International Symposium on
Modeling and Optimization

MODOPT 2017
June 25 - 29, 2017- Venice, Italy


Technical Co-Sponsors and Logistics Supporters

This symposium is part of INFOCOMP 2017.

   
   

Call for Papers:

Modeling and optimization are important design phases for software and hardware systems. With the development of mobile and wireless systems and applications, health and ambient systems, there is a need for new concepts and practices for modeling and optimization to be generalized.

MODOPT 2017 is dedicated to present and discuss innovative solutions or industrial impact on modeling and optimization. We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

The topics suggested by the symposium can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.

Topics:

  • Foundations of modeling and optimization
  • Enterprise modeling and optimization
  • Modeling and optimization in real-time systems
  • Modeling and optimization in complex systems
  • Model-based software and systems engineering
  • Modeling computations on modern HPC architectures
  • Empirical modeling
  • Modeling data-intensive computing
  • Algorithms and flow optimization
  • Socio-inspired optimization algorithms
  • Quality assurance and modeling (analysis, testing, verification)
  • Functional and non-functional properties of models

  • Parallel I/O optimization, convex optimization, stochastic optimization
  • Quality, clarity, and accuracy in modeling
  • Modeling and statistical modeling approaches
  • Performance benchmarking and optimization
  • Modeling domains (data analytics, big data, systems engineering, social media, devices and services, mobile applications, health applications, open source software)
  • Input noise modeling
  • Modeling and Optimization of 5G RAT/RAN (Radio Access Technology/Network)
  • Modeling and Optimization of Cloud Access and Small Cells
  • Modeling features (collaboration, scalability, security, interoperability, adaptability)
  • Maintenance an extension of models
  • Cost-effectiveness of models and optimization
  • Models for performance analysis and prediction

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).
