EMUTools 2014 – 2nd Workshop on Emulation Tools, Methodology and Techniques
March 17-19, 2014, Lisbon, Portugal

Collocated with SIMUTools 2014


EMUTools, 2nd workshop on Emulation Tools, Methodology and Techniques,
is a major event dedicated to emulation tools and methodology,
collocated with SIMUTools 2014. Emulators represent a family of tools
where real and emulated components interact at various levels and
scales with external elements. Where simulators aim at evaluating the
performance and conformity of models, emulators aim at evaluating that
of real components in the real execution environment. The potential of
emulators have been acknowledged, notably as a validation and
integration technique (or methodology) prior to deployment, and as a
complementary approach to field-operational tests. Emulators have
also recently been subject to an increasing interest from
practitioners in various fields of research. Yet, emulation tools
have experienced only little dedicated visibility from the community
to breed inter-disciplinary collaborative research and exchange of
ideas in the very specific and challenging methodologies and
techniques required by emulator tools, or available in major emulation

The workshop therefore aims at providing an interaction environment
between academic and industrial researchers along with practitioners
in the emulation field. EMUTools proposes to address research
challenges in the emulation methodologies, architecture, analysis,
applicability, performance, practice and platforms. This event also
aims as building a bridge between the simulation and emulation
communities to foster collaborative research to address common
challenges in the complementary fields of emulation and simulation.

We invite submissions of original high quality work in the area of
emulation methodology, techniques, tools and applications.

EMUTools’ general area includes but is not limited to:

• Emulation Methodology: architecture, distributed systems,
load-balancing, multi-processor, scalability, cloud,

• Emulation Techniques: multi-granularity,
co-emulation/simulation, application, system, protocol or channel

• Emulation Tools: framework, software, platforms,
front-end/back-end, and interactions between different simulation and
emulation tools.

The workshop invites submissions in application areas implicating
emulation methodology, techniques or tools. Specific topics include
(but are not limited to):
• Wireless technologies and access networks (cellular,
vehicular, mesh, ad hoc, wireless sensor networks)
• Backbone and core network (LTE, LTE-A, Internet)
• Peer-2-Peer and overlay networks
• Cloud systems and networks
• Parallel and distributed systems, high-performance computing systems
• Infrastructure systems (transportation, smart grid)
• Intelligent transportation systems
• Cyber-physical systems
• E-Health
• Sensors and M2M networks

Submission Instructions:
We invite three types of submissions:
• Full papers up to 10 pages
• Short papers up to 6 pages for work-in-progress aspects

All submissions to the workshop should contain aspects of EMUTools’
general area, with emulation methodology, techniques or tools playing
a central role. We particularly welcome submissions of case studies,
where emulation methodology, techniques and tools will be proposed to
reduce the gap between scalability, applicability and usability.

All submissions should be written in English, be prepared in ACM
conference proceedings format, and be original research that is
unpublished and not currently under consideration for publication. All
submissions to EMUTools 2014 should be submitted via the SIMUTools
2014 conference website in PDF format. At least on author of each
accepted paper is required to register and present the work in person
at the EMUTools workshop.

Submissions should be written in English, be prepared in ACM
conference proceedings format, and be original research that is
unpublished and not currently under consideration for publication.
Paper should be submitted only in .pdf format on Easychair at:

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers,
assessing their originality, correctness, and relevance to EMUTools
general area, as well as their writing quality. In exceptional
circumstances (such as papers evidently out of scope), some
submissions may not receive full-length reviews and may be rejected

To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during
the review process, all submissions should include the FULL list of
authors. The author list may only be changed prior to the submission

Accepted papers presented at the workshop will appear along with the
SIMUTools 2014 electronic proceedings, in the ACM DL, and in EU-DL.
'Green' open access is endorsed, i.e., authors may make their papers
available on their own web sites.
