Call For Papers

The 3rd workshop on Complex Systems Modelling and Simulation (CoSMoS) will take
place as a satellite event of the AlifeXII: 12th International Conference on
the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems (
Previous CoSMoS workshops have provided a forum for research examining all
aspects of the modelling and simulation of complex systems. This year, we aim
to complement the main themes of Alife XII by focusing the workshop on the
engineering aspects of modelling and simulating (artificial) living systems.

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
is part of a four-year initiative, based at the Universities of York and Kent,
UK, to develop a framework and infrastructure for the construction of of
generic 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:


We are seeking papers on the engineering aspects of the modelling and
simulation of complex systems, with a focus on complex living systems.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Examples of engineering models and simulations of living systems
* 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 (to be presented orally) and abstracts (to be
presented via a poster). Both 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 in advance of submission.

LNCS formatting details can be found here:
