EAI SIMUtools 2021 : 12th EAI International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques
Call For Papers
EAI SIMUtools 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).
If the local situation allows it, the event will take place on-site in its original location with an option for all authors to present remotely.
In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.
SIMUTools 2021 is the 13th 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 system modelling and simulation, software simulation, communication networks’ modelling and analysis, AI system simulation and performance analysis, big data simulation analysis, addressing current and future trends in simulation techniques, systems, networks, methods, platforms, models, practices and software, emulation software, simulation tools, emulation tools. 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 (2019-2020), this year’s edition will provide an exciting forum for interaction among academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community, the emulation community, the development community, the application community, the production community, and the different user communities. The SIMUTools 2021 conference will be held in Xuzhou, China, on September 17-19, 2021.
The conference invites submissions on the topics below in all areas of simulations and emulations. Submissions in interdisciplinary areas are especially encouraged, such as. Smart transportation, Smart Cities, big data Health, Intelligent communication, AI-based networking, Intelligent networking, Electromagnetic cognitive, Environment, Electromagnetic spectrum analysis, Mathematic analysis and simulation, Societal Challenges, Digital Humanities, network security, ICT Infrastructure, Intelligent manufacturing, Intelligent Business, and so on. The conference also invites posters, demos, and technical demonstrations that report on recent results, ongoing research or industrial case studies in the area of the platforms, tools, and technologies related to simulations and emulations.
All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library: SIMUtools Conference Proceedings.
