            	             CALL FOR PAPERS


        April 4-9 2011. Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel Boston, MA. USA.


                               Sponsored by
           The Society for Modeling and Simulation International

                   in cooperation with ACM/SIGSIM and ICST 

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum to discuss recent 
advancements in Theory of M&S. The main focus is on theory of modeling, 
methodology, practice and software to cope with the challenges arising 
out of these, as well as lessons learned and challenges. The Symposium 
bridges different areas in the field of Theory of M&S, including formal 
modeling, model-checking, graph transformation, modeling methodologies. 
It also provides an opportunity to exchange ideas with other SpringSim'11 
symposia participants in different fields.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

- DEVS, Petri Nets, Finite State Machines, Timed Automata, Process Algebras
- Hybrid system modeling and integration of formalisms 
- Formal analysis and symbolic reasoning 
- Model Checking 
- Graph Transformations

M&S Software
- M&S Software, including frameworks and libraries for DEVS, PN, FSM, TA,
PA, etc.
- Education aspects of Theory of M&S	

- Parallel & distributed simulators 
- Middleware and simulators Interoperability (grid, cloud, web services) 
- M&S Engineering
- M&S-Based development methods

Practice and Lessons Learned
- Military systems and infrastructures 
- Real-time and embedded systems 
- High performance computing 
- Software-intensive/networked systems 
- Transportation and traffic systems 
- Ecological and environmental systems 
- Standards

All papers will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in
both the the ACM and EU Digital Libraries; Full Papers will be also printed
hard copy.

Important Dates
Paper Submission: 21 Nov 2010
Notification: 	21 Dec 2010
Final Paper:  	25 Jan 2011
Main conference: 4-9 Apr 2011

Submission Procedures 
The conference committee will accept three types of papers submitted as a 
PDF file to the conference website (http://www.softconf.com/scs/DEVS11/)
as listed below. All the submitted papers should be original and not have 
been submitted to other venues; they will be peer reviewed with respect to 
their quality, originality and relevance. 

1. Full manuscript: 8 pages in final conference format. In addition to
publication in the conference proceedings, they will be considered for best 
paper award. Full papers will be published both in hard copy and CD-ROM. 

2. Work in Progress: Short papers up to 6 pages in final conference format.

3. Short Papers: Papers with industrial focus, military or government 
applications, and work-in-progress in abstract or short paper format. 

This year, the Symposium will hold the Second Bernard P. Zeigler DEVS M&S
Award, to recognize high-impact innovations in M&S methods, applications 
and tools (sponsored by RTSync - Chair: Doohwan Kim). 

Authors interested in organizing satellite workshops can contact the
organizers. Up to date, two workshops have been confirmed:

- Mod4Sim: M&S and Software Engineering (Chairs: Andrea D'Ambroggio - 
UniRoma "Tor Vergata" - and Dorina Petriu - Carleton University -). 

- DEVS Standardization (Chairs: Xiaolin Hu - Georgia State - and Hessam
Sarjoughian - University of Phoenix -).
