The 2019 Summer Simulation Conference (SummerSim’19) is an annual conference sponsored by The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS), which focuses on modeling and simulation, tools, theory, methodologies and applications and provides a forum for the latest R&D results in academia and industry. SummerSim’19 invites original contributions to the theory and practice of modeling and simulation in any scientific or engineering discipline including but not limited to:
  • Advanced and Visual Analytics for Simulation
  • Simulation in the System Design
  • Human and Social Simulation
  • Cloud-based and High-Performance Simulation Environments
  • Simulation for Cybersecurity and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Modeling and Simulation for Strategy Engineering
  • Simulation and Machine Learning
  • Simulation in Augmented and Virtual Environments
  • Emergency Management Simulation
  • Software Engineering and Performance
  • QoS/QoE Modeling, Analysis, and Performance Evaluation
  • Experimental Testbeds, Field Trials and Deployment issues
The conference includes keynote speeches presented by technology and industry leaders, technical sessions, professional development tutorials, as well as vendor exhibits. Scientists, engineers, managers, educators, and business professionals who develop or use M&S methodologies and tools are invited to participate and present original contributions.

Submission Guidelines

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 accepted research papers will be included in the conference proceedings and may be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed in DBLP and SCOPOS; some exceptions apply.

We welcome submission of the following types of contributions and/or proposals:

  • Workshops
  • Tutorials (2 hours)
  • Short papers, describing early research efforts (6 pages max)
  • Extended abstracts (2 pages max)
  • Live demonstrations to be given during the conference

General Technical Papers

Original, high-quality technical papers are solicited for review, possible presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings. Papers are max 12 pages long with single column format (see author’s kit at http://scs.org/authorskit). Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during SpringSim’19 review process.

Short papers (max 6 pages, with same format of regular papers), describing early research efforts, work in progress or position statements, are also welcome.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by a minimum of 3 reviewers and feedback will be provided. Authors of papers accepted for the SpringSim’19 Conference 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.


Tutorial proposals should be two pages in length. Interested authors are invited to submit an accompanying optional paper: maximum of 12 pages long, with a minimum of five pages, with single column format.
