SIMUTools 2017 is the 10th edition of the annual International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques. The conference focuses on a broad range of research challenges in the field of simulation, modeling and analysis, addressing current and future trends in simulation techniques, models, practices and software. The conference is dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary collaborative research in these areas and across a wide spectrum of application domains.
Building on the success of the previous editions (2008-2016), this year's edition will provide an exciting forum for interaction among academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community and the different user communities. The conference will be held in Shenzhen, China's Silicon Valley.
The conference invites submissions on the topics below in all application areas of simulation. Submissions in interdisciplinary areas are especially encouraged (e.g. Smart Cities, Health, Environment, Societal Challenges, Digital Humanities, Security, IT Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Business). The conference also invites posters and technical demonstrations that report on recent results, ongoing research or industrial case studies in the area of simulation.
SIMUTools' general topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed simulation, time synchronization, load balancing and migration, model partitioning, hybrid simulation, simulation-interoperation, multi-resolution and multi-scale simulation
Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based, symbiotic simulation
Simulation software: environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks
Simulation performance: GPU-based simulation, simulation in the cloud, scalability, performance analysis
Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others
Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models, simulation-based verification, workflows, simulation experiment design, and optimization
Simulation packages:widely used frameworks such as Modelica, ns-2/3, OPNET, Qualnet, OMNET++, and other open source software for modeling and simulation
You can find more details about submission in "initial submission" and "author´s kit".
Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit papers via the SIMUTools conference website in PDF format, complying with the ACM conference proceedings style. 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 reviewers. Papers will be assessed based on originality, correctness, relevance, and quality of writing. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages describing work in progress can also be submitted in the short paper category.
All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to ACM Digital Library.
Accepted authors are invited to submit extended versions of their papers to:
- IEEE Access SI on Convergence of Sensor Networks, Cloud Computing, and Big Data in Industrial Internet of Things
Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: EI, ISI Thomson's Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, MAS, EBSCO, as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
