2016 Summer Simulation Multi-Conference


2016 Summer Simulation Multi-Conference (SummerSim'16)

July 24-27, 2016 | Palais des congres de Montreal (Montreal Convention Center) | Montreal, Quebec, Canada

'Scalability, Interoperability and Interdisciplinarity in the Simulation Art'




[ICBGM Submit Paper] [SCSC Submit Paper] [SPECTS Submit Paper]



Aims and Scope

The Summer Simulation Multi-Conference 2016 (SummerSim’16) is a combination of the Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC), the International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunications Systems (SPECTS), and International Conference on Bond Graph Modeling and Simulation (ICBGM). SummerSim is SCS's premier international conference in cooperation with ACM SIGSIM. The conference focuses on modeling and simulation, tools, theory, methodologies and applications and provides a forum for the latest R&D results in academia and industry. This year’s focus is on the Role of Simulation Tools, Methodologies and Technologies in Scalable and Interoperable Cyber-Physical Systems and Interdisciplinary Issues for a Connected Word. We encourage you to take this opportunity to experience the tutorials, tracks, and workshops that will be available.

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. All papers will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in both the SCS digital library and the ACM Digital Library, and will be indexed in DBLP and SCOPUS.

A selected group of the best papers of SummerSim’16 will be invited to be published in a Special Issue of the SIMULATION journal (Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International). All authors are encouraged to submit extended versions of their papers to the Special Issue, according to the guidelines that will be posted on the webpage after the conference.
