SOAISLP Track- EMSS 2012 : Track on Simulation Optimization Approaches in industry, services and logistics processes at EMSS 2012
Call For Papers
Problems in industries, services and in general supply chain management problems can be either modelled using classical optimization techniques or approaches based on simulation techniques. The former techniques have the advantage that they perform efficiently when the problems are properly defined, but they also have the drawback that are generally based on some fixed parameters. Furthermore sometimes important information is lost during the abstraction process in order to fit the problem in the optimization technique; on the other hand, simulation approaches have the advantage that they posses high description levels but the optimization is generally performed taking samples of the whole possible configurations that the system can have.
In later years scientific community is concerned in developing hybrid approaches that benefit from the advantages of both paradigms in order to give good solutions to important problems in services, production processes or supply chains such as scheduling, routing problems and resource allocations among others.
Some immediate applications are in:
· Automotive Industry
· Production in Manufacturing
· Supply Chain Management
· Hospital Services
· Transportation Services
The objective of this track is to present recent developments or case studies that combine simulation/optimization techniques in order to give solutions to problems in those fields.

Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 12, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the June 12, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
