Welcome to Inter-Perf 2008
Inter-Perf 2008: Workshop on Interdisciplinary Systems Approach in Performance Evaluation and Design of Computer & Communication Systems
Communication networks is now a diverse area featuring sensor networks, mobile networks, ad hoc networks, and various application layer networks. A great deal of current research focuses on the networking aspect of interacting computer systems, which are typically large scale and highly dynamic. Interestingly, operational principles of these networking systems may exhibit great similarity with complex systems found in other sciences, when studied at an appropriate level of abstraction. This observation suggests that models and techniques developed in other sciences can potentially be used in order to evaluate and understand the performance of existing communication systems and also to drive design of new ones.
The workshop aims at getting together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas, including biology, economics, physics, artificial intelligence and social sciences, to present their contributions applicable to performance evaluation and design of computer & communications systems. In particular this third edition of the workshop will focus on completely distributed self-organizing systems. Approaches from the following research areas are considered of particular interest:
- Mechanism design
- Multiple agent systems
- Social networks
Dates and Location
The Inter-Perf 2008 workshop is co-located with the VALUETOOLS conference. The workshop will be held on October 24, 2008 in Athens, Greece.
