The Summer Simulation Multi-Conference 2017 (SummerSim’17) is a combination of the Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC) and the International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunications Systems (SPECTS). 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 pervasive role of simulation tools, methodologies and technologies for enabling a more informed and effective online decision making. We encourage you to take this opportunity to experience the tutorials, tracks, and workshops that will be available. Click here for additional information.
A selected group of the best papers of SummerSim 2017 will be published in a special issue of Systems. All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s normal process of evaluation for suitability for peer review. Please note that acceptance of a paper in SummerSim 2017 does not imply acceptance of an accompanying paper for publication in the special issue.
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.
