We invite you to submit and present an original contribution for SimAUD 2020. All submissions are peer-reviewed and considered for selection by the Scientific Committee. All accepted full papers (8 pages) will be published in the ACM Digital Library: https://dl.acm.org/dl.cfm. However, all the accepted submissions (both full and short papers) will be published in SimAUD’s proceedings. Please observe the submission types and deadlines on the website.
Research works can be submitted in several categories:
Areas of Interest
SimAUD topics include, but are not limited to:
Note: All submissions are published in SimAUD’s Proceedings.
Full papers (max. 8 pages) present significant contributions to research and practice in the SimAUD areas. Accepted full papers will be archived at the ACM Digital Library: https://dl.acm.org/dl.cfm. Links to SimAUD papers in the Digital Library are posted at www.simaud.org/papers.php.
Please adhere to the 8-page limit and prepare your paper using one of the templates below:
Short papers are non-archived publications (max. 4 pages) that present brief and focused research contributions that are noteworthy but may not merit a full paper. Typically, short papers provide an overview of research-in-progress and/or thought-provoking work relevant to the SimAUD community. They have not reached completion level necessary for jury review and acceptance as complete papers; however, authors will benefit from in-person feedback from symposium attendees.
Short papers should include:
Please adhere to the 4-page limit and prepare your paper using one of the templates below:
In order to help bring together diverse disciplines we aim to establish a common language of perspectives, case studies, techniques or technologies. One way to start this process is through invited works. The Committee may internally evaluate and invite certain papers, projects, or videos to include in the symposium outside the formal peer-review process. To nominate research that you believe would be beneficial to building this new community, please email any of the chairs with suggestions.
Project & Videos
Many architecture and urban design projects communicate visions of a proposed future. Projects and videos are among the best ways to communicate these visions. We invite project and video submissions of high-quality scientific visualizations of architecture or urban design projects, interactive design decision support systems, compelling animations of construction simulation, and more. We strongly encourage authors of full and short paper submissions to also provide a high-quality video for peer-review and exhibition at the SimAUD symposium.
A project submission is a poster that summarizes a professional or student design project that utilizes simulation as a means for informing design decisions, in an effort to demonstrate innovation and excellence in architecture and urban design. All projects should be submitted on boards that adhere to an A1 page size, portrait or landscape orientation, with no other specific limitations and not necessarily tied to a paper submission.
All papers that were accepted as posters should be submitted following the same format as the project posters.
Accepted projects and videos will be featured in a poster session during the conference, and will be featured on SimAUD’s website. If you plan to provide a video or project, please notify the General Chair by email prior to the submission deadline.
Data sets are optional (but recommended) collections of ZIP files of original data that accompany full or short paper submissions. A data set submission may include, for example, a detailed Building Information Model (BIM) of a real or virtual building that would be of use to the SimAUD community for simulation testing or cross-validation. Another example would be a conceptual model of a process or event expressed as DEVS classes. Other data sets could be point clouds, sensor data, programs, models of HVAC units, fridges, escalators, geothermal, etc. Many scientific communities suffer from a lack of access to high-quality detailed data sets and algorithms. At SimAUD, an accepted peer-reviewed data set is recognized as a significant contribution to science, and we hope to encourage researchers and practitioners to share their data for the greater good of the community.
Data sets will be linked or archived at www.simaud.org/datasets. If you plan to contribute a data set, please notify the General Chair by email prior to the submission deadline.
A small fee applies to others participants , for which there is no refund in case of cancellation after May 1st. Registration will open soon, please check back to this site for details.
