##################################################################### 

March 26-29, 2012, Orlando, FL (USA) 
http://www.sel.uniroma2.it/Mod4Sim12 

##################################################################### 
# Papers Due: *** November 15, 2011 ***

# The Symposium is co-sponsored by IEEE. 
##################################################################### 

The workshop aims to bring together experts in model-based, model-driven and software engineering with experts in simulation methods and simulation practitioners, with the objective to advance the state of the art in model-driven simulation engineering. 

Model-driven engineering approaches provide considerable advantages to software systems engineering activities through the provision of consistent and coherent models at different abstraction levels. As these models are in a machine readable form, model-driven engineering approaches can also support the exploitation of computing capabilities for model reuse, programming code generation, and model checking, for example. 

The definition of a simulation model, its software implementation and its execution platform form what is known as simulation engineering. As simulation systems are mainly based on software, these systems can similarly benefit from model-driven approaches to support automatic software generation, enhance software quality, and reduce costs, development effort and time-to-market. 

Similarly to systems and software engineering, simulation engineering can exploit the capabilities of model-driven approaches by increasing the abstraction level in simulation model specifications and by automating the derivation of simulator code. Further advantages can be gained by using modeling languages, such as UML and SysML – but not exclusively those. For example, modeling languages can be used for descriptive modeling (to describe the system to be simulated), for analytical modeling (to specify analytically the simulation of the same system), and for implementation modeling (to define the respective simulator). 

A partial list of topics of interest includes: 

* model-driven simulation engineering processes 
* requirements modeling for simulation 
* domain specific languages for modeling and simulation 
* model transformations for simulation model building 
* model transformations for simulation model implementation 
* model-driven engineering of distributed simulation systems 
* relationship between metamodeling standards (e.g., MOF, Ecore) and distributed simulation standards (e.g., HLA, DIS) 
* metamodels for simulation reuse and interoperability 
* model-driven technologies for different simulation paradigms (discrete event simulation, multi-agent simulation, sketch-based * simulation, etc.) 
* model-driven methods and tools for performance engineering of simulation systems 
* simulation tools for model-driven software performance engineering 
* model-driven technologies for simulation verification and validation 
* model-driven technologies for data collection and analysis 
* model-driven technologies for simulation visualization 
* Executable UML 
* Executable Architectures 
* SysML / Modelica integration 
* Simulation Model Portability and reuse 
* model-based systems verification and validation 
* simulation for model-based systems engineering 

To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider scope and welcomes contributions offering original perspectives on model-driven engineering of simulation systems. 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
On-Line Submissions and Publication 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 

We invite paper submissions in three forms: 

1. Full paper (max 8 pages), describing innovative research results. These papers are eligible for the best paper award and may be invited for an extended version in a special issue of the SCS SIMULATION journal. 
2. Work-in-progress paper (max 6 pages), describing novel research ideas and promising work that have not yet been fully evaluated. 
3. Short paper (max 6 pages), describing industrial and hands-on experience on any relevant area (i.e. military, government, space, etc.). 

All the papers must be submitted through the SCS conference management systems (http://www.softconf.com/scs/DEVS12/), selecting the Mod4Sim track in the "Submission Categories" section. All the submitted papers must be in PDF format and must conform to the SCS conference template (Word template is available at http://www.scs.org/upload/documents/templates/ConferenceSubmissionWORDTemplate.doc , guidelines are available at http://www.scs.org/PDFs/formattingkit.pdf). All the submitted papers must be original and not submitted else where. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed with respect to their quality, originality and relevance. The authors of the accepted papers must register in advance for inclusion of their paper in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to update their papers basing on the reviews, before providing the camera ready. 

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library, IEEE Xplorer and IEEE CS Digital Library. However, **only** accepted **full papers** will be printed in hard copy. 

Authors may contact the organizers for expression of interest and content appropriateness at any time.
