#################################################################

Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is increasingly becoming a central
activity in the design of new systems and in the analysis of
existing systems because it enables designers and researchers to
investigate systems behavior through virtual representations. For
this reason, M&S is gaining a primary role in many industrial and
research fields, such as space, critical infrastructures,
manufacturing, emergency management, biomedical systems and
sustainable future. However, as the complexity of the
investigated systems increases and the types of investigations
widens, the cost of M&S activities increases for the more
complex models and for the communications among a wider number and
variety of M&S stakeholders (e.g., sub-domain experts, simulator
users, simulator engineers, and final system users). To address
the increasing costs of M&S activities, collaborative
technologies must be introduced to support these activities by
fostering the sharing and reuse of models, by facilitating the
communications among M&S stakeholders, and more generally by
integrating processes, tools and platforms.

Aside from seeking applications of collaborative technologies to
M&S activities, the track seeks innovative contributions that
deal with the application of M&S practices in the field of
collaborative engineering platforms. These platforms are continuously
becoming more complex, and therefore their design requires
systematic approaches to meet the required quality of
collaboration. This is important for two reasons: to reduce
rework activities on the actual collaborative environment, and to
maximize the productivity and the quality of the process the
collaborative environment supports. M&S offers the methodologies
and tools for such investigations and therefore it can be used to
improve the quality of collaborative environments.

A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest includes:

* collaborative requirements modeling
* collaborative environments for M&S
* collaborative Systems of Systems M&S
* business proces modeling for collaborative environments
* agent-based M&S
* collaborative distributed simulation
* collaborative component-based M&S
* net-centric M&S
* web-based M&S
* model sharing and reuse
* model building and evaluation
* modeling and simulation of business processes
* modeling for collaboration
* simulation-based performance analysis of collaborative engineering platforms
* model-driven approaches for collaborative engineering
* domain specific languages for collaborative M&S
* databases and repositories for M&S
* distributed virtual environments
* virtual research environment for M&S
* collaborative DEVS M&S
* multi-method M&S

To stimulate creativity, however, the track maintains a wider
scope and invites interested researchers to present contributions
that offer original perspectives on collaboration and M&S.

On-Line Submissions and Publication
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

CoMetS'14 intends to bring together researchers and practitioners
to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative
applications and trends in the track research area.

This year, we will accept submissions in two forms:

(1) papers
(2) poster and industrial presentations

(1) Papers should contain original contributions not published or
submitted elsewhere. Papers up to six pages (including figures,
tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the
IEEE format, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt
Times/Roman font. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF)
and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee
members.

Accepted full papers will be included in the proceedings and
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (IEEE approval pending).
Please note that at least one author for each accepted paper should
register to attend WETICE 2014 (http://www.wetice.org) to have the
paper published in the proceedings.

(2) Posters should describe a practical, on-the-field, experience in
any domain area using collaborative M&S. The poster submission
requires the submission of an abstract for evaluation from the
organizers. Accepted abstract must be followed by the submission of
a poster which will be displayed at conference time.
With the poster submission, a short (15 minutes) slot might be
allocated for oral presentation illustrating the industrial case.
The presentation may also include a live demo, but it should not
include commercial details.

Interested authors and participants may contact the organizers for expression of interests and content

appropriateness at any time.

Papers and posters can be submitted in PDF format at the conference submission site

(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wetice2014), by selecting the CoMetS track.

Please feel free to contact the track chairs (dambro@uniroma2.it, danielegmail-comets@yahoo.it)
if you experience problems with the EasyChair Web site.
