PADS 2011 : ACM/IEEE/SCS 25th Workshop on Principles of Advanced and Distributed Simulation
Conference Series : Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation
Call For Papers
The Workshop on Principles of Advanced and Distributed Simulation (PADS), (formerly called Parallel and Distributed Simulation), is soliciting papers in all aspects of simulation technology, expanding the traditional focus on parallel and distributed simulation methods and applications. Specifically, the steering and program committees look forward to high-quality paper submissions in the following areas:
The construction of simulation engines using advanced computer science technology.
Techniques for constructing scalable simulations.
Advanced modeling techniques.
New research in previously difficult problem domains.
Simulation visualization techniques.
Algorithms and methods for parallel or distributed simulation, including synchronization, scheduling, memory management, load balancing, and reverse computation.
Applications of large-scale or distributed simulation methods.
Distributed interactive simulation and distributed virtual environments.
Tools and techniques for interoperability of simulations.
Integration of simulation with other IT systems, including automatic simulation model generation and initialization and simulation based decision making.
Online and symbiotic simulation.
Simulation as emulation of real systems.
Mechanisms for efficient design of experiments applied to ensembles of simulations for parameter estimation, optimization, variance estimation, etc.
Unifying approaches towards mixed discrete and continuous simulation
Verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification of simulations
Sponsors (approvals pending):
ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation (SIGSIM)
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Simulation (IEEE-TCSIM)
Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)
Paper manuscripts must be submitted no later than January 15, 2011.
Electronic submission of postscript or PDF is required, using the electronic paper submission system available on the PADS website.
Notification of acceptance will be made by February 28, 2011.
Camera ready copies must be submitted by March 30, 2011.
Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Each submission must be accompanied by the following information: a short abstract, a complete list of authors and their affiliations, a contact person for correspondence, post and email addresses. Papers must be written in English and should not exceed 10 pages using IEEE Formatting Guidelines (the final versions of accepted papers will be limited to 8 pages, with the option to buy additional pages). All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process, i.e., the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the paper, and bibliographic references should be suitably modified.
