Call for Papers


SIMUTools 2015 is the eight 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 seven editions (2008-2014), 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.

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

The conference invites submissions on the topics above 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).


Papers describing significant research contributions of theoretical and/or practical nature are being solicited for submission to the conference.

Authors are invited to submit original, high-quality papers presenting new research related to simulation software, methodologies, applications, and practices. While SIMUTools' main focus is on advances in simulation software and techniques, the submission of papers is encouraged on all aspects of simulation, modeling, and analysis, including broader theoretical and practical research contributions.

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. In exceptional circumstances (such as papers evidently out of scope) may not receive full-length reviews and may be rejected summarily. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present the work in person at the conference. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages describing work in progress can also be submitted in the short paper category.


The papers that are accepted and presented at the conference will appear in electronic proceedings, in the ACM DL (pending approval), and in EU-DL.


Submission will be via Easy Chair and further details can be found on the website.
