Call For Papers


SIMUTools 2018 is the 11th 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.


• 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++, Mininet, and other open source software for modeling and simulation


All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

SIMUtools proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
