IEEE WETICE 2010 - 1st International Workshop on Collaborative Modeling and Simulation
CALL FOR PAPERS
June 28 - June 30, 2010, Larissa (Greece)
* Papers Due: March 2, 2010
* Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI.
Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is increasingly becoming a central activity in the design of new systems and in the analysis of existing systems because it enables designers and researchers to investigate systems behavior through virtual representations. For this reason, M&S is gaining a primary role in many industrial and research fields, such as space, critical infrastructures, manufacturing, emergency management, biomedical systems and sustainable future. However, as the complexity of the investigated systems increases and the types of investigations widens, the cost of M&S activities increases because of the more complex models and of the communications among a wider number and variety of M&S stakeholders (e.g., sub-domain experts, simulator users, simulator engineers, and final system users). To address the increasing costs of M&S activities, collaborative technologies must be introduced to support these activities by fostering the sharing and reuse of models, by facilitating the communications among M&S stakeholders, and more generally by integrating processes, tools and platforms.
Aside from seeking applications of collaborative technologies to M&S activities, the workshop seeks innovative contributions that deal with the application of M&S practices to the design of collaborative environments. These environments are continuously becoming more complex and therefore their design requires systematic approaches to meet the required quality of collaboration. This is important for two reasons: to reduce rework activities on the actual collaborative environment, and to maximize the productivity and the quality of the process the collaborative environment supports. M&S offers the methodologies and tools for such investigations and therefore it can be used to improve the quality of collaborative environments.
A non-exhaustive list of hi-level topics includes:
* collaborative environments for M&S
* agent-based M&S
* collaborative distributed simulation
* net-centric M&S
* web-based M&S
* model sharing and reuse
* model building and evaluation
* modeling and simulation of business processes
* modeling for collaboration
* simulation-based performance evaluation of collaborative networks
* model-driven simulation engineering
* domain specific languages for the simulation of collaborative environments
* domain specific languages for collaborative M&S
To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider scope and invites interested researchers to present contributions that offer original perspectives on collaboration and M&S.
On-Line Submissions and Publication
CoMetS'10 intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications and trends in the workshop research area.
Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere. Papers up to six pages (including figures, tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt Times/Roman font. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF) and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members.
Full papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (IEEE approval pending). Note that at least one author from each accepted paper should register to attend WETICE 2010 to get the paper published in the proceedings.
Authors may contact the organizers for expression of interests and content appropriateness at any time. Papers can be submitted in PDF format at the submission site (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=comets10), which is supported by the EasyChair conference management system. Please contact the workshop chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you experience problems with the EasyChair Web site.
