Call for Papers
42nd Annual Simulation Symposium (ANSS'09)

Part of the 2009 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'09)

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

March 22 - 27, 2009

Doubletree Hotel San Diego-Mission Valley
San Diego, CA

Full Paper Submission Deadline has been extended to November 15, 2008

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 contributions in all areas of modeling and simulation are welcome. This year's symposium is particularly seeking papers in the following topical areas:

  •  Service-oriented Computing and Simulation
  •  Web-based Modeling and 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
  •  Simulation of Sensor Networks
  •  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
  •  Wearable Computer Systems
  •  Mobile and Nomadic Computing
  •  Energy-aware Schemes for Wireless Networks
  •  Simulation of Real-time Systems
  •  Parallel and Distributed Simulation
  •  Simulation based Software Performance
  •  Reliability and Maintenance Models
  •  Simulation of Multimedia Applications and Systems
  •  Cognitive Modeling and Simulation
  •  Artificial Intelligence in Simulation
  •  Neural Network Models and Simulation
  •  Animations/Virtual Reality
  •  Advances in Simulation Methodology and Practices
  •  Experimental Design
  •  Meta-modeling
  •  Statistical Analysis and Inference
  •  Verification and Validation
  •  Selection and Comparison Procedures

Key Dates

Abstract / Full Paper Submission due
15 Nov 2008 Submit technical articles and experience reports, properly formatted in accordance with these guidelines.
Notification 30 Dec 2008 The program committee will review the papers and determine which ones will be accepted.
Final Paper due 20 Jan 2009 The final version of accepted papers, incorporating changes based on reviewer comments, are due by this date.

Abstracts and papers should be submitted to the SCS Conference Proceedings Management SystemAll submissions will be fully refereed for accuracy, technical content, and relevance. Papers should be formatted in accordance with the SCS Conference formatting guidelines. 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 SpringSim‘09 Conference Proceedings and the ACM Digital Library. Authors of top papers will also be encouraged to submit a follow-on paper for publication in Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation.
