CALL FOR PAPERS/ABSTRACTS
7th Complex Systems Modelling and Simulation Workshop (CoSMoS 2014)
Workshop held on Wednesday 30 July 2014 (TBC)
New York, NY, USA
The 7th workshop on Complex Systems Modelling and Simulation (CoSMoS 2014) will take place as a satellite workshop at the beginning of ALIFE 14: The 14th International Conference on the Synthesis and simulation of Living Systems (http://blogs.cornell.edu/alife14nyc/), New York, NY, USA. 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 complex systems dynamics and their visualisation.
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/workshops.html
AREAS OF INTEREST
We are seeking submissions that explore aspects of complex systems modelling and simulation, with a special focus on complex systems dynamics and their visualisation. 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
We are accepting both full papers and abstracts for presentation at the workshop. Submissions will be peer reviewed, and accepted 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 firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of submission.
