SCSC’07 is focused on basic and applied research in modeling and simulation. Modeling and Simulation is a very critical area for supporting Research and Development as well as competitiveness worldwide; new technologies are enabling new use of M&S and increasing its impact in new areas; SCSC provides an International Forum for presenting the State of the Art in the International Simulation Community as well as the Effectiveness of Simulation Experiences in World Businesses. Several topical perspectives will serve to illuminate the evolution of the modeling and simulation community. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and governmental and industrial investigators to exchange ideas and discuss developments in this growing field.

All submissions will be reviewed based on the draft full paper and/or extended abstract. The best contributed paper will be given an award. A selected group of full papers will be published in the special issue of Simulation Journal (SCS).

The list of topics includes (but is not limited to):

Paper Submission Procedures

The conference committee will accept three types of papers submitted as a PDF file to the conference website (http://www.softconf.com/scs/SCSC07/) as listed below. Final version of all the papers MUST COMPLY with the SCS conference format. All the submitted papers will be peer reviewed with respect to their quality, originality and relevance. The authors of the accepted paper MUST register in advance for inclusion of their paper in the conference proceedings.

1.      Full manuscript: 8 pages in final conference format. In addition to publication in the conference proceedings, they will be considered for best paper award and for possible inclusion in a Special Issue of the Simulation Journal (SCS). Full papers will be published both in hard copy and CD-ROM.

2.      Work in Progress: Short papers up to 6 pages in final conference format. 

3.      Short Papers: Papers with industrial focus, military or government applications, and work-in-progress in abstract or short paper format.

Each paper must include the title, authors, affiliations, addresses, references and abstract for proper positioning in the conference. Only original papers, written in English, which have not been published previously elsewhere, will be accepted. Please indicate which conference topic is most appropriate.

Please note that in case of acceptance, your final manuscript will need to be submitted electronically as a PDF file to the conference websiet by May 15, 2007 to guarantee inclusion in the conference CD and final program. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted. All papers will be included in the conference proceedings and archived in both the SCS digital library and the ACM Digital Library; Full Papers will be also printed in hard copy.


Submission of Full Papers


April 20th, 2007

Notification of Acceptance


May 25th, 2007 (most notifications already sent; in case of problems contact the Program Chair).

Final Camera-Ready Submission and Early Registration


June 22nd, 2007

A PDF version of this Call for Papers is available here.


The organizing committee is seeking high quality tutorials in the areas related to one or more of the conference themes listed above.
