2024 Annual Modeling and
Simulation Conference

May 20 - 23, 2024

American University, Washington D.C., USA


Hosted by The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS), the Annual Modeling and Simulation Conference (ANNSIM) is the SCS Conference to cover state-of-the-art developments in Modeling & Simulation (M&S). We invite original contributions to the theory and practice of modeling and simulation in any scientific or engineering discipline. 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. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into ACM and IEEE Xplore subject to meeting ACM and IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
Evaluation criteria: Double blind submissions will be assessed with respect to their overall contributions, strengths and weaknesses. Feedback will include qualitative comments on these three dimensions as well as quantitative scores. Both qualitative and quantitative feedback will be used by track chairs to suggest a decision, which will then be reviewed by the organizing committee.
