5th OMNeT++ Community Summit 2018

University of Pisa, Italy
– September 05-07, 2018 -


***** Submission Deadline July 16, 2018 *****

OMNeT++ is a public-source, component-based, modular and open-
architecture simulation environment with strong GUI support and an
embeddable simulation kernel. It is designed to simulate diverse
discrete event-based systems.

The OMNeT++ Community Summit is an open meeting with time and space
for tutorials, discussions, coding sessions as well as presentations
on recent developments and novel ideas in the broad area of modeling
and simulation, with a focus on the OMNeT++ simulation framework.
The OMNeT++ summit unites users, developers, and researchers to
discuss applications, developments, and ideas on the topics of
integrating simulation models, coupling different simulation tools
and providing more accurate and more efficient modeling approaches
and simulation models.

The 2018 edition of the Community Summit will include a “hackathon”
for the first time in the history of OMNeT++-related events. The
hackathon gives developers of simulation models and frameworks the
opportunity to propose hackathon working topics and projects and to
directly consult and team-up with the OMNeT++ core developer team at
the hackathon. Exemplary topics for hackathon projects could be:
- hands-on problem solving (e.g., improving scalability);
- setting up regression and continuous testing for projects;
- improving certain model aspects (e.g., 2D or 3D visualization);
- porting to INET 4.0;
- informal discussion of interoperability and development roadmaps.
Hackathon topics will be selected based on prior written proposals.

The 2018 Summit also reintroduces the possibility to submit
scientific contributions which will be reviewed by the TPC and (if
accepted and presented at the summit) be published in the indexed
open access journal EPiC Series in Computing (ISSN: 2398-7340).
The copyright for all submission types is retained by the authors.

Topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:
- Design, evaluation, validation of simulation models
- Simulation credibility and validation
- Modeling techniques, including stochastic and hybrid modeling
- Comparison or integration with other simulation/emulation tools
- Parallel simulation and simulation control
- Integration of hardware-specific code
- Simulative approaches to performance evaluation
- Cross-layer protocol or system design methodologies
- Use of discrete event simulation in other domains
- Result interpretation and analysis
- Simulation in the loop
- Industrial applications and practical use cases
- Experiences on contributions to international standards

We invite researchers and users alike to submit one or more of the
following contribution types:

(a) Scientific contributions (up to 8 pages) are full research
papers that describe ongoing work or finalized results. Full
papers that are reviewed and accepted by the TPC and presented
at the summit will appear in the summit proceedings that are
published in the indexed open access journal “EPiC Series in
Computing” (
The copyright for submissions is retained by the authors.

(b) Short abstracts (up to 2 pages) provide overviews of a proposed
presentation or demonstration. Authors may find this format
suitable for design proposals, for preliminary or more narrowly
focused work, for case studies, or to highlight OMNeT++-related
results in work that has been published elsewhere.
Short abstracts will be invited as either a presentation, as a
demonstration, or a poster and will be published on the summit
website and included in the Zenodo digital repository of the
OMNeT++ Community Summit
The copyright for submissions is retained by the authors.

(c) Proposals for hackathon projects can be submitted via e-mail to
the organizers: (
Exemplary topics are listed on the summit website.

(d) Proposals for tutorials, discussion panels, and other kinds of
interactive community summit activities can be submitted to the
organizers via email: (

All submissions should be of interest to the OMNeT++ community.
We welcome case studies that employ OMNeT++ in the evaluation of
systems as well as contributions addressing general questions of
OMNeT++-based simulations.
For model-centric submissions, we ask the author(s) to publicize
source code at the time of submission.

All submissions will be checked by the organizers and scientific
submissions will be reviewed by the technical program committee.
Proposals for individual contributions will be invited depending
on the submission type and based on the expected interest for the
OMNeT++ community. We provide poster slots for all participants.

Contributions should be prepared with the Easychair EPiC series
template (use the letter format and the [EPiC] mode for LaTeX).
Detailed instructions are available on the summit website:

Scientific contributions accepted by the TPC and presented at the
summit will be published in the indexed open access journal “EPiC
Series in Computing”. All other contributions will be included and
indexed in the OMNeT++ Community Summit's digital Zenodo repository.
Copyrights for all contributions (including the EPiC submitted
articles) will remain solely with the authors.

The OMNeT++ Community Summit is sponsored and free to attend by
everyone. Registration or publication fees will not be applied.
