Simutools 2008 : 1st International Conference on Simulation Tools and techniques for Commuications, Networks and Systems & Workshops
Conference Series : Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks and System
Call For Papers
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. Extended versions of selected papers will be published in relevant special issues of leading 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.
Full Papers due: October 15, 2007
Notification of Acceptance: December 14, 2007
Camera-ready Manuscripts due: January 18, 2008
Conference Dates: March 3-7, 2008

Short papers are 4 to 6 pages long and do not compete for Best Paper award or Journal Selection. Short Papers are intended for authors that wish to present their ongoing work or new open issues. Each paper will be peer reviewed for quality and correctness by at least three reviewers. Only original papers, written in English, which have not been published previously elsewhere, will be accepted.
Please visit the Submission page for detailed submission requirements and procedures.
Call for Workshops
We solicit workshop proposals on new and emerging topics in Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks and Systems. We are seeking high-quality submissions that focus on a specific theme of current interest. Proposals for one-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference are solicited and should be forwarded to the workshops chairs firstname.lastname@example.org by September 21, 2007. Acceptance notification by October 1, 2007.
Call for Panel Sessions
Panel sessions proposals should be submitted to email@example.com by September 21, 2007. Proposals should state the session title, a description of the topic, and the names of key organizers and potential panelists. Panel Session topics will be decided by November 10, 2007.
Call for Exhibitors at EXPOTools
In addition to the main technical program, the conference will hold a parallel exhibition, EXPOTools. This will be a unique opportunity for industry, researchers and professionals to exhibit simulation tools, techniques and related products.
