Call For Papers

SIMUTools 2014 is the seventh 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 simulation, modeling and analysis, addressing current and future trends in simulation techniques, models, practices and software. 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 six editions (2008-2013), this year's edition will provide an exciting forum for interaction among academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community and the different user communities.


SIMUTools' general topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed simulation, time synchronization, load balancing and migration, model partitioning, hybrid simulation, simulation-interoperation, multi-resolution and multi-scale simulation
Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based, symbiotic simulation
Simulation software: environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks
Simulation performance: GPU-based simulation, simulation in the cloud, scalability, performance analysis
Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others
Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models, simulation-based verification, workflows, simulation experiment design, and optimization
Simulation packages:widely used frameworks such as Modelica, ns-2/3, OPNET, Qualnet, OMNET++, and other open source software for modeling and simulation

The conference invites submissions on the topics above in all application areas of simulation.

Submissions in interdisciplinary areas are especially encouraged. 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
Infrastructural networks
Logistics and manufacturing
Environmental and biological systems
Multi-agent systems
Security and emergency applications
Military applications
Social networks


Papers describing significant research contributions of theoretical and/or practical nature are being solicited for submission to the conference.

Authors are invited 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, the submission of papers is encouraged on all aspects of simulation, modeling, and analysis, including broader theoretical and practical research contributions.

Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit papers via the SIMUTools conference website in PDF format, complying with the ACM conference proceedings style. 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 reviewers. Papers will be assessed based on originality, correctness, relevance, and quality of writing. In exceptional circumstances (such as papers evidently out of scope) may not receive full-length reviews and may be rejected summarily. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present the work in person at the conference. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages describing work in progress can also be submitted in the short paper category.
