7th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques, SIMUTools 2014
SIMUTools 2014 is the seventh 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.
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 submissions on the topics above in all application areas of simulation.
