Call for Papers
38th Annual Simulation Symposium (ANSS'05)

Part of the 2005 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'05)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)

April 3 - 7, 2005

Hilton Mission Valley Hotel
San Diego, CA

The Annual Simulation Symposium is a forum for the exchange of ideas, techniques, and applications among practitioners of simulation in industry, government, and academia. This international Symposium is the oldest continuously operating conference/symposium dedicated to simulation.

The paper sessions are designed to promote discussion of concepts, tools, methodologies, and results between authors and the audience. The structure of the Symposium also provides for a degree of collegiality and continuity in the discussions of the various topics presented during the week

Original contribution in all areas of modeling and simulation are welcome. 

This year's Symposium is particularly seeking papers in the following topical areas:

Object-Oriented Simulation
Simulation Languages, Tools, and Environments
VLSI Circuit Simulators
Simulation of Multiprocessor Architectures
Simulation of Distributed Systems and Databases
Simulation of Parallel Processing Systems
Simulation-based Performance Analysis
Network Modeling and Simulation
Simulation of Sensor Networks
Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Networking and Computing
Simulation of Large Scale Systems
Simulation of Clusters and Grids
Simulation of Client-Server Systems
Simulation of Wireless Systems
Pervasive Computing
Smart Network Design and Traffic Modeling
Routing and Mobility Management in Networks

General Chair:

Taieb Znati
University of Pittsburgh

Program Chair:

Helen Karatza
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Paper Submission Deadline: October 30, 2004.

It is strongly recommended that papers be submitted to the Program Chair by electronic mail. All submissions will be fully refereed for accuracy, technical content, and relevance. Papers should be NO longer than 25 double-spaced pages. Please include full name, affiliation, address, phone number, and email address of each author and designate the author who is to be contacted. Authors will receive the reviewers’ comments and will be given a chance to respond to these reviews. Authors’ replies will be taken into consideration in the final paper selection decision. Accepted papers will appear in the Symposium’s Proceedings which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. Authors of top papers will also be encouraged to submit a follow-on paper for publication in SCS journals. Only papers that have not been previously published or presented should be submitted. Authors must obtain employer, client, or government releases prior to submitting the final manuscript. For additional information, please contact Prof. Helen Karatza.
