Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital Library. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Simulation: Systems, Science & Technology.

The registration fee is $495. This will include a copy of the proceedings, refreshments and lunch.

STUDENT SPONSORSHIP: A number of discounted registration-fees of $345, reduced from $445, are available for high-equality young student papers, i.e. papers whose first author is enrolled on a recognised full time postgraduate taught or research programme as verified by an electronic letter from his project supervisor emailed to Dr Orsoni (conference chair). Authors who wish their papers to be considered for such reduction must include the term ‘Student Paper’ in a separate line before the title on the first page.


Accommodation in College: graduates from Cambridge colleges go on to become leading world scientists, prime ministers, parliamentarians and top civil servants. Share the experience of living-in by staying in college rooms. An all inclusive full-board 3-day package is available for $640, single occupancy. This includes a meal on the evening before the conference, all meals/conference dinner on day 1 and day 2  (including conference pre-dinner reception), and breakfast and lunch on day 3. For those wishing to eat outside, a Bed & Breakfast 3 day package is available at $440 single occupancy. A limited number of en-suite rooms is also available on full board basis at $740 for a 3 day package, single occupancy. Booking and pre-payment is essential, see EDAS Registration.

Submission Guidelines

You are invited to submit:
- full paper of 6 pages (Letter format) for oral presentation,

- proposal to organize a technical session and/or workshop.

Submissions must be original, unpublished work containing new and interesting results that demonstrate current research in all areas of modelling and simulation and their applications in science, technology, business and commerce. The proceedings of the Conference will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. The conference is supported/co-sponsored by


-          EUROSIM

-          European Council for Modelling & Simulation

-          Society for Computer Simulation Int. (SCS)- Europe

-          IEEE UK &RI Computer Chapter

-          Asia Modelling & Simulation society


Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. All papers are to be submitted electronically,- see full instructions under Paper Submission below, in PDF or Word format. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least three independent referees of the international program committee.

A minimum of one registration fee is payable for each paper accepted.

When the final version of the paper is uploaded one of the authors should be nominated to attend the conference and present the paper. If this is not done then the organising committee will assume that the first author is the nominated author. The status of the nominated author will determine the registration fee that is payable for that paper. If additional authors wish to attend (and they are not the nominated author for another paper) then an additional registration fee is payable for each such author.

Attendees must pay the registration fee appropriate to their own status.
