Call For Papers

2005 Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC'05)

The Summer Computer Simulation Conference is focusing on Innovative Technologies for Simulation this year. Modeling and Simulation is a very critical area for supporting Research and Development as well as competitiveness worldwide; new technologies are enabling new use of M&S and increasing its impact in new areas; SCSC provides an International Forum for presenting the State of the Art in the International Simulation Community as well as the Effectiveness of Simulation Experiences in World Businesses.  Several topical perspectives will serve to illuminate the evolution of the modeling and simulation community. All submissions will be reviewed based on the draft full paper and/or extended abstract.  

The SCSC'05 Student Workshop, devoted to PhD Students, Master Students and Undergraduates willing to submit a paper to be presented during SCSC'05, enables students to attend the workshop and get a SCSC'05 CD copy including the whole Conference Proceedings with a very special registration fee ($55 USD, Student ID and Professor Check Required).  The Student Workshop speakers will compete for the Best SCSC'05 Student Paper Award (at SCSC'03 and SCSC'04 this included checks for $1,000 for each winner provided by AEgis Technologies and AIMS).  All the accepted student papers will be included in SCSC'05 CD-Proceedings, but are keep separate from SCSC'05 hardcopy proceedings (regular non-student papers are included in both).

The Conference Committee will choose also the best SCSC'05 papers for awards; these awards will include consideration of those papers for possible publication in a special issue of an International Journal. 

The list of topics includes (but is not limited to):

M&S Technologies

Tutorials

The organizing committee is seeking high quality tutorials in the areas related to one or more of the conference themes listed above.

Tutorial Proposal Submission

The proposal must contain:

Title of the tutorial
Name and affiliation of the presenter(s)
A brief biography of the presenter(s) with evidence for research and teaching experience
A short description of the tutorial (1-2 paragraphs)
List of Topics
Motivation (relevance to the conference themes)
Target audience
Duration (half-day minimum)

Note: all full day proposals will be treated as two separate ˝ day tutorials and need to be structured into two clearly separate parts.

Proposal submissions should be e-mailed to either the Program Chair or the General Chair.

     
Paper Submission

Extended abstracts (4-6 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process as a PDF file to the Manuscript Central proceedings management system site by February 28, 2005. Each extended abstract must include the title, authors, affiliations, addresses, references and summary (4-6 pages) for proper positioning in the conference. Only original papers, written in English, which have not been published previously elsewhere will be accepted. Please indicate which conference topic is most appropriate, listing first and second choices. Notifications of acceptance status will be sent on May 2, 2005.

Please note that in case of acceptance  your final manuscript will need to be submitted electronically as a PDF file to the Manuscript Central proceedings management system site by March 15, 2005 to guarantee inclusion in the conference CD and final program. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted.
