SIMUTools 2013 is the sixth installment 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 thereby strives to foster interdisciplinary collaborative research in these areas and across a wide spectrum of application domains.

This edition, which builds on the success of the previous five editions (2008-2012), will provide a forum for interaction that brings academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community and the different user communities.
Paper submissions describing significant research contributions of theoretical and/or practical nature are solicited.



We invite authors 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, we encourage the submission of papers on all aspects of simulation, modeling, and analysis, including broader theoretical and practical research contributions.

SIMUTools’ general areas of interest include:

* Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed simulation, time
synchronization, load balancing and migration, model partitioning, hybrid simulation,
* Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based,
symbiotic simulation
* Simulation software: environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks, including specialized
tools, such as ns-2/3, OPNET, ATDI ICS, Qualnet, OMNET++, NIIST, e-cell, and other open
source software for modeling and simulation
* Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others
* Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models,
simulation-based verification, workflow, simulation experiment design, and optimization

The conference invites submissions in all application areas. We specifically encourage submissions in interdisciplinary areas. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

* Wireless technologies (cellular, vehicular, mesh, ad hoc, wireless sensor networks)
* Network models (mobility models, traffic models, network topology)
* Overlay networks, peer-to-peer networks
* Parallel and distributed systems, high-performance computing systems
* Operating systems
* Fault tolerant systems
* Embedded and real-time systems
* Human behavioral models/representations
* Infrastructure networks (transportation, traffic, electric power, natural gas, etc.)
* Logistics and manufacturing
* Environmental and biological systems
* Multi-agent systems
* Security and emergency applications
* Military applications

Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit papers through EasyChair in PDF format, complying with the ACM conference proceedings format. 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 different individuals. In exceptional circumstances, papers may not receive full-length reviews and may receive early rejection notice; if they are deemed out of scope, for instance. Papers will be assessed based on originality, correctness, relevance and quality of writing. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and present the work at the conference. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages, describing work in progress, can also be submitted.



Accepted papers presented at the conference will appear in CD proceedings, in the ACM DL (approval pending), and in EU-DL.
