First International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks and Systems

  Message from the General Chairs

  Foreword by TPC Chairs...

Best Paper Award: Implementing MAC Protocols for Cooperative Relaying: A Compiler-Assisted Approach by Hermann Lichte and Stefan Valentin (University of Paderborn)

Conference Proceedings now available on-line: accepted papers are published here, in ACM Digital Library


SIMUTools 2008 is the first international conference focusing on Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks, and Systems. The conference will address all aspects of simulation modelling and analysis. Papers are sought on the topics of methodology, tools, applications, and practices. Particular emphasis will be given to papers that bridge multiple areas.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to

  • Methodology/Simulation Art: Web based simulation, Agent based simulation, Petri Nets simulation, Fluid flow simulation, Bond Graphs simulation, Simulation-based Scheduling, ...
  • Application areas: Telecommunication, Network Security, Health Care, Transportation, Manufacturing, Public Systems, Education and Training, ...
  • Tools: OPNET, NS-2, interconnected simulation platforms, ATDI ICS, Qualnet, OMNET++, NIIST, Dymola, Matlab/Simulink, open source tools, ...

The event is in cooperation with ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation (SIGSIM) and Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS). All accepted papers will be made available in ACM Digital Library, as well as indexed by EI and ISI Index. Best papers will be considered for publication in Special Issues of the following journals:

Authors of accepted papers should register and present their work at the conference. A poster session will accommodate short papers and works in progress.
