Special Issue: Sustainable Infrastructure Management
Journal of Facilities Management

Further information at:
For further questions contact the Guest Editor, Fuzhan Nasiri, at

Abstract: Infrastructures are facilities and services that support the functioning of human societies. Examples are utility networks (such as water, wastewater, gas, electricity, and communications), transportation systems (such as airports, railroads, roads, and bridges), public buildings (municipal buildings and hospitals), and social venues (such as sports and entertainment facilities). Capital intensity, network complexity, and criticality of services provided are among the main attributes of infrastructure systems. Infrastructure management is emerging as a top global priority in the 21st century due to a growing stock of aged infrastructure facilities and an increasing demand for infrastructure services resulted from a highly urbanized population. 

The closing date for submissions is:  1st May 2013

Call for Papers:
Journal of Simulation Special Issue on Simulation for Sustainable Healthcare

Further information at:

Abstract: The Journal of Simulation (JOS), an official journal of The UK Operational Research Society, aims to publish methodological and technological advances in the application of simulation modelling-related theory and practice. JOS publishes material in a wide range of domains, including manufacturing, service, defence and healthcare, as it seeks to interest and provoke discussion within the wider simulation community. JOS has recently been accepted by Thomson Reuters for indexing and inclusion in the Science Citation Index (SCI). JOS will publish a special issue on simulation for achieving sustainable development in healthcare.

The special issue editors invite contributions in conceptual, methodological and technical advances to modelling for sustainability in healthcare. Studies that have applied M&S for practical problem solving and have considered the TBL of sustainability are also welcome. The review process will be the same as that used by the journal. Topics suitable for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cross-domain review of literature pertaining to M&S for sustainability, with the objective of furthering sustainable healthcare simulation.
  • Conceptual models and frameworks to guide the development of models for sustainable healthcare. Empirical validation of the same.
  • Methodological aspects pertaining to modelling for sustainability, for example, the use of hybrid simulation models that incorporate both productivity and sustainability–related criterion.
  • Studies that report on the application of simulation for sustainable dementia care, sustainable care for the elderly, among others.
  • Sustainable healthcare supply chains.
  • Studies that increase awareness of sustainable healthcare through use of Serious Games in a teaching environment.

Submission deadline: 1 July, 2013
