PADS 2020 : ACM SIGSIM Conference on Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation
Conference Series : Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation
Call For Papers
The ACM SIGSIM Conference on Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation (ACM SIGSIM PADS) continues its reputation for high quality papers. SIGSIM PADS is the flagship conference of ACM's Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling (SIGSIM).
The ACM SIGSIM PADS conference focuses on cutting-edge research that lies at the intersection of Computer Science and Modeling and Simulation (M&S). All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. An abstract submission is required for all papers by January 31, 2020. The full paper submission is due by February 14, 2020 in the ACM conference format (double column; single space). The page limit is for 10 pages + one page for references. Reviews are double-blind thus all identifying information must be removed from the manuscript: this includes removing authors' names and affiliations, acknowledgements, funding information, and all references to the authors' work that would disclose their identity. This information can be added to accepted manuscripts.
To submit, please use easychair
High quality papers are solicited in all aspects of M&S, including (but not restricted to) the following areas:
- Advanced modeling techniques, including reuse of models, new modeling languages, agent-based M&S, and spatially explicit M&S.
- Algorithms and methods for parallel or distributed simulation, including synchronization, scheduling, memory management, load balancing, and scalability issues.
- New simulation algorithms and techniques including hybrid simulation approaches, adaptive algorithms, approximations, GPU, FPGA and hybrid architecture acceleration.
- Modeling and simulation for big data and big data analytics.
- Simulation infrastructure and security issues for large scale distributed and/or cloud-based modeling and simulation.
- Model and simulation persistence and recovery in the presence of hardware failures.
- Integration of simulation with other IT systems, methods, and developments including simulation based decision-making, visual analytics, intelligent support in M&S, and simulation in cloud computing environments.
- Mechanisms for efficient design of experiments, including dynamic verification and validation of models, and automatic simulation model generation and initialization.
- M&S applied to manage and/or optimize operational systems and methodological challenges arising from these applications including online simulation, symbiotic simulation, dynamic data-driven application systems, real-time and embedded simulation, and emulation of real systems.
- Tools and techniques for interoperability and composability of simulations including emerging standards and service-oriented approaches.
- Case studies considering the application of new or advanced computational methods to applications of contemporary interest.

The ACM SIGSIM PADS organizing committee is soliciting short papers to be presented at the conference. Short papers can be up to 4 pages long, and should describe interesting, novel research that is in an early stage of development or position papers of interest to the community. All short papers will be fully reviewed and will be published in the conference proceedings and included in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author is required to attend the conference and present their work in a time slot of 10 to 15 minutes.
Ph.D. Colloquium and Poster Session
The Ph.D. Colloquium and Poster Session at the ACM SIGSIM PADS conference is an exciting opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their work to the research community. Each participating student is required to:
submit an Abstract with no more than 500 words,
prepare and bring a poster to the conference, and
provide a short presentation at the Ph.D. Colloquium and participate in the poster session at the conference.
ACM SIGSIM will provide a complementary one-year membership to ACM SIGSIM to participants at the Ph.D. colloquium. ACM SIGSIM will also offer a limited number of $1,000 travel grants to colloquium participants.
Paper Presentation Requirement
Publication of an accepted paper in the ACM SIGSIM PADS Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library requires the presentation of the paper at the conference. If an accepted paper is not presented at the conference, that paper will be removed from the Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
