8th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques
August 24-26, 2015, Athens, Greece
SIMUTools 2015 is the eighth edition of the annual International Conference
on Simulation Tools and Techniques. The conference focuses on a broad
range of research challenges in the field of simulation, modeling and analysis, addressing current and future trends in simulation techniques, models,
practices and software. The conference is dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary collaborative research in these areas and across a wide spectrum of
application domains.
Important Dates
Abstract submission deadline
January 30. 2015
Short and full paper submission

SIMUTools' general topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed simulation, time synchronization, load balancing and migration, model partitioning, hybrid simulation, simulation-interoperation, multi-resolution and multi-scale simulation
Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based, symbiotic simulation
Simulation packages: widely used frameworks such as Modelica, ns-2/3, OPNET, Qualnet, OMNET++, and other open
source software for modeling and simulation
Simulation software: environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks
Simulation performance: GPU-based simulation, simulation in the cloud, scalability, performance analysis
Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others
Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models, simulation-based verification, workflows,
simulation experiment design, and optimization
Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit papers via the SIMUTools conference website in PDF format,
complying with the ACM conference proceedings style.
Submitted papers must not have been submitted for review or published (partially or completely) elsewhere. Every paper will be peer-reviewed by at
least three reviewers. Papers will be assessed based on originality, correctness, relevance, and quality of writing. In exceptional circumstances (such as
papers evidently out of scope) may not receive full-length reviews and may be rejected summarily. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present the work in person at the conference. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages describing work in progress can also be submitted in
the short paper category.
