ACM SIGSIM PADS 2015 Call for Papers

Venue: University of Westminster, London, UK
Date: 15 - 17 Jun 2015

Hosted by the University of Westminster (founded as Britain’s first polytechnic in 1838), the ACM SIGSIM Conference on Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation (ACM SIGSIM PADS) builds on 29 years of history and the reputation for high quality papers. This is the flagship conference of ACM's Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling (SIGSIM).

The ACM SIGSIM PADS conference focuses on the intersection of Computer Science and Modeling and Simulation (M&S).

We are soliciting high quality papers in all aspects of M&S, including (but not restricted to) the following areas:

  • Advanced modeling techniques, including reuse of models, new modeling languages, agent-based M&S, and spatial M&S.
  • Algorithms and methods for parallel or distributed simulation, including synchronization, scheduling, memory management, and load balancing.
  • New simulation algorithms including hybrid simulation approaches, adaptive algorithms, and approximations, GPU, FPGA and hybrid architecture acceleration.
  • Integration of simulation with other IT systems, methods, and developments including simulation based decision-making, visual analytics, intelligent support in M&S, and simulation in the grid or in the cloud.
  • Mechanisms for efficient design of experiments, including dynamic verification and validation of models, and automatic simulation model generation and initialization.
  • M&S applied to solve problems in difficult domains and methodological challenges arising from these applications including online and symbiotic simulation, real-time and embedded simulation, and emulation of real systems.
  • Tools and techniques for interoperability of simulations, including emerging standards and service-oriented approaches.

Special Sessions will be organized on the following topics:

  • Internet of Things and Simulation
  • Cloud for PADS
  • Hybrid Simulation

International Symposium on Military Operational Research

Venue: Royal Holloway, University of London
Date: 21 - 24 Jul 2015

2015's International Symposium on Military Operational Research will be held at Royal Holloway, University of London, from 21 to 24 July 2015. Further details and online booking will be available at from January.

ISMOR is sponsored by MOD and strongly supported by the OR Society DSIG and by the US Military Operations Research Society. It is self-funding and non-profit making.

YoungOR 19 Biennial Conference

Venue: Conference Aston Meeting Suites (CAMS) at Aston University Business School, Aston Triangle, Birmingham. B4 7ET
Date: 22 - 24 Sep 2015

YoungOR 19 is the conference for those whose Operational Research (O.R.) careers are less than ten years in duration. This is a biennial conference for academics and practitioners with up to ten years of experience in O.R.  Attendees have the opportunity to present their work to peers in a supportive environment, while learning about how O.R. techniques have been used in a wide range of applications.  Parallel streams of talks are interspersed with presentations from plenary and keynote speakers.   

Simulation in Production and Logistics

Venue: Dortmund, Germany
Date: 23 - 25 Sep 2015

The German simulation society (ASIM) conference on Simulation in Producation and Logistics in Dortmund (23-25 September). The conference website can be found at:

2015 Winter Simulation Conference

Venue: Huntington Beach, California
Date: 06 - 09 Dec 2015

The Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) is the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of dynamic systems modeling and simulation. In addition to a technical program of unsurpassed scope and quality, WSC provides the central meeting place for simulation practitioners, researchers and vendors. Research in modeling and simulation is propelled by fostering cross-fertilization between various disciplines. The conference website is at
