CALL FOR PAPERS
5th Complex Systems Modelling and Simulation Workshop (CoSMoS 2012)

University of Orléans, France, 3rd September 2012

http://www.cosmos-research.org/workshops/cosmos-workshop-2012
cosmos-2012@cs.york.ac.uk
*******************************************************************

The 5th workshop on Complex Systems Modelling and Simulation (CoSMoS 2012) will take place as a 1-day satellite workshop of the Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation conference (http://www.univ-orleans.fr/lifo/events/UCNC2012/index.php) at the University of Orléans, France. The CoSMoS workshops series provides a forum for research examining all aspects of the modelling and simulation of complex systems. This year, we will place a special focus on how complex systems simulations can be used to simulate unconventional and natural computation.

Constructing models and simulations of complex systems is a challenging and interdisciplinary task. Elements might include choice of modelling tools and techniques, simulation infrastructures, concurrency, the process of moving from models to simulations, arguing validity of simulations, and the identification of reusable engineering techniques such as patterns. The CoSMoS workshop series continues an initiative, based at the Universities of York and Kent, UK, to develop a framework and infrastructure for the construction of complex systems simulations.

Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer-review process and accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by Luniver Press. Proceedings of the previous CoSMoS workshop are available: http://www.cosmos-research.org/publications/proceedings

*****************
AREAS OF INTEREST
*****************

We are seeking submissions that explore aspects of complex systems modelling and simulation, with a special focus on how complex systems simulations can be used to simulate unconventional and natural computation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Complex systems simulation case-studies
* Modelling tools and techniques
* Simulation infrastructures
* Arguing validity of simulations
* Concurrency and distribution techniques
* Identification of reusable engineering techniques
* Working across scientific disciplines

***********
SUBMISSIONS
***********

We are accepting both full papers (to be presented orally) and abstracts (to be presented via a poster). Both full papers and abstracts will appear in the workshop proceedings.

For submission via abstract, please submit an abstract not longer than 2 pages of LNCS format that summarises the content of the poster you wish to present. Full papers can be of any length up to a maximum of 25 pages of LNCS format. If you wish to exceed the page limit, or have any other queries, then please email cosmos-2012@cs.york.ac.uk in advance of submission.

LNCS formatting details can be found here: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair here: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cosmos2012
