Call for Papers 43rd Annual Simulation Symposium (ANSS'10)

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
  • 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
  • Simulation and Emulation of Embedded systems
  • Pervasive Computing
  • Smart Network Design and Traffic Modeling
  • Routing and Mobility Management in Networks
  • 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
  • Statistical Analysis and Inference
  • Verification and Validation
  • Selection and Comparison Procedures

Key Dates
  • Full Paper Submission due 28 Nov 2009
    Submit technical articles and experience reports, properly formatted in accordance with these guidelines.
    Notification 19 Dec 2009
    The program committee will review the papers and determine which ones will be accepted. Final Paper due 31 Jan 2010
    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 System. All 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‘10 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.
