Simutools 2012 : SIMUTools2012 5th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques
Conference Series : Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks and System
Call For Papers
SIMUTools 2012 (the 5th International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques) invites authors to submit original, high-quality papers presenting new research related to simulation tools, methodologies, applications, and practices. While SIMUTools' main focus is on advances in simulation tools, we encourage the submission of papers on all aspects of simulation modeling and analysis, including broader theoretical and practical research contributions. The conference serves as a forum to foster collaborative work by bringing together researchers from academia and industry, and practitioners who develop and who use simulation technologies in a variety of areas.
General areas of interest include:
Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed, hybrid, load balancing, partitioning, simulation-interoperation
Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based, symbiotic simulation
Simulation tools, libraries and frameworks, including specialized tools, such as ns-2/3, OPNET, ATDI ICS, Qualnet, OMNET++, NIIST, e-cell, and other open source tools
Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others
Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models, simulation-based verification, workflow, simulation experiment design, optimization, and simulation coercion.
The conference invites submissions in all application areas. We specifically encourage submissions in interdisciplinary areas. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
Wireless technologies (cellular, vehicular, mesh, ad hoc, wireless sensor networks)
Network models (mobility models, traffic models, network topology)
Overlay networks, peer-to-peer networks
Parallel and distributed systems, high-performance computing systems
Fault tolerant systems
Embedded and real-time systems
Human behavioral models/representations
Infrastructure networks (transportation, traffic, electric power, natural gas, etc.)
Logistics and manufacturing
Environmental and biological systems
Security and emergency applications
Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit papers through EasyChair in PDF format, complying with the ACM conference proceedings format. Submitted papers must not have been submitted for review or published (partially or completely) elsewhere. Every paper will be peer-reviewed by at least three different individuals. In exceptional circumstances, papers may not receive full-length reviews and may receive early rejection notice; if they are deemed out of scope, for instance. Papers will be accepted based on originality, correctness, and quality of writing. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and present the work at the conference. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages, describing work in progress, can also be submitted.
