The scope of the congress includes all aspects of continuous, discrete (event) and hybrid modelling, simulation, identification and optimisation approaches. Fore details see Scope and topics.
The programme scheme consists of:
Best papers will be published by Elsevier in a special issue of the EUROSIM journal Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory (with science citation index).
In the programme scheme 6 plenary lectures presented by outstanding speakers are foreseen, covering different actual research and technological topics on the area of M&S.
Important part of the congress programme represent regular sessions, covering congress scope and topics which can be still extended according to the suggestions of IPC members or special sessions organisers. Sessions consist of 4-6 papers where presentation with discussion lasts 20 minutes.
Only original papers which have not been previously published can be sent. The papers are subjects to the standard copyright regulations.
The papers will be reviewed and selected on the basis of extended abstract (2 pages) or draft papers – for details see Instructions for authors. Each paper will be reviewed by three referees.
Special sessions cover specific fields within the scope of the congress. They should consist of 5-6 papers with not more than two from the research group of the session organiser. Choice of authors and papers is up to the session organiser who is completely responsible for the topics and also for the reviewing.
Organisation of special sessions tracks is also welcome (two or three sessions with not more than one third of papers from the research group of the organiser). Of course international structure of the sessions is preferable.
All papers proposed by the session organiser will be accepted for presentation and will be included in the congress proceedings. Moreover, these papers are also subject to the standard copyright regulations. Contributors to special sessions are treated as every participant in the congress what means that they are expected to pay the appropriate fee. However, the fees for the special session organisers will be reduced.
Potential special sessions organisers are kindly asked to send preliminary information about the session they intend to organise (topic, tentative title, number of papers and possibly preliminary authors list) as soon as possible but not later than 1st of February 2007 to the programme chair who will send them the detailed information about the needed procedures.
Poster means at the congress only the way of presentation. In the sense of submission, format in the proceedings and also reviewing procedure the posters are exactly the same as regular papers.
So posters will have similar weight as oral presentations because for some topics of global interest posters are very appropriate. They are namely often even more attainable than regular papers due to parallel sessions.
A best poster award is also foreseen.
In this competition students must be the first and leading authors of papers. Co-authorships with other students and/or faculty advisers are permitted. Such authors must be registered at the university as either undergraduate or graduate students (e.g. bachelor and master in new Bologna studies).
No more registered authors are legible if they were registered as undergraduate or graduate students in the year 2006. Students must not compete with their PhD work, however they are welcome to participate in other sessions.
Authors will be requested to provide verification in this regard (a student document) what also entitles him the reduced student registration fee.
Awards for the winners of the competition are also foreseen.
Tutorials cover areas interesting for congress participants as well as for possible other audience. Here also exhibitors can participate with their software or hardware presentations. Tutorials will be organised in the first day and will be, according to the interest , repeated during the congress. They will last three hours including a break.
Proposals should be sent by email to the EUROSIM 2007 IPC chair by 1st of February 2006. A tutorial proposal should clearly indicate the topic, background knowledge expected of the participants, objectives and the qualifications of the instructor(s).
