         10th International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques


            11 - 13 September, 2017,  Shenzhen, China


*** SCOPE ***

SIMUTools 2017 is the 10th 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.

Building on the success of the previous editions (2008-2016), this year's edition will provide an exciting forum for interaction among academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community and the different user communities. The conference will be held in Shenzhen, China's Silicon Valley.


The conference invites submissions on the topics below in all application areas of simulation. Submissions in interdisciplinary areas are especially encouraged (e.g. Smart Cities, Health, Environment, Societal Challenges, Digital Humanities, Security, IT Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Business).  The conference also invites posters and technical demonstrations that report on recent results, ongoing research or industrial case studies in the area of simulation.

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 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

*** Simulation packages:widely used frameworks such as Modelica, ns-2/3, OPNET, Qualnet, OMNET++, and other open source software for modeling and simulation


The conference invites proposals for one-day workshops that are to be held in conjunction with the main conference and are intended to complement the conference main track. Example topics of interest for prospective workshops may address the use of simulation in a given context (e.g., system production, software engineering, collaborative environments, virtual reality, etc.) or in a given application domain (e.g., healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, automotive, etc.), as well as specific simulation tools and methodologies.

Prospective workshop organizers may combine these and other topics into a coherent theme and set up a workshop proposal that includes the following information:

*** Title of the proposed workshop (full name and short name)

*** Profile of workshop organizers (including affiliations, contact info and brief biography)

*** Theme of the workshop and topics of interest, and how these relate to the main conference

*** Tentative list of Program Committee members

*** Description of the submission and revision procedure

***  Preliminary Call for Papers

*** Expected number of accepted papers

*** Expected number of attendees

*** Estimated time schedules

Workshop proposals (max two pages) should be submitted to workshops at simutools.org by the deadline below.

Prospective workshop organizers may contact the workshop chair at workshops at simutools.org for expression of interests and content appropriateness at any time.

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for:

*** building and updating the workshop web site

***  getting sponsorships (optional)

*** soliciting papers

*** coordinating reviews (at least three reviews per submission are required)

*** corresponding with the authors and the organizers of the main conference

*** adhering to the proceedings publication procedure and constraints

*** participating to the workshop (at least one organizer has to attend)


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. Short papers of 4 to 6 pages describing work in progress can also be submitted in the short paper category.

All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to ACM Digital Library.

Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to  a special Journal Issue.
