Call for Papers SW25


Journal of Simulation Special Issue

After the conference, the Journal of Simulation will announce a Simulation Workshop Call for Papers. The special issue will be open to authors of all accepted papers from SW25.


The workshop will include plenary sessions, special focus streams, beginner/advanced tutorials, and posters. Contributions to the technical programme are sought in the following areas, although papers in any area of simulation modelling and analysis will be considered.

Simulation Modelling Methodology

  • Hybrid modelling
  • Digital twin / Real-time simulation
  • Simulation and AI
  • Open science and open models
  • Hybrid simulation
  • Component-based simulation
  • Collaboration methods
  • Distributed simulation
  • Web-based simulation
  • Simulation and the grid/cloud
  • Simulation and artificial intelligence
  • Simulation visualisation
  • Simulation software
  • Simulation standards
  • Human performance modelling
  • Discrete-event simulation
  • Agent-based simulation
  • System Dynamics
  • Service-oriented simulation
  • Conceptual modelling
  • Verification and Validation
  • Simulation Analytic

Simulation Analysis Methodology

  • Design / analysis of simulation experiments
  • Simulation optimisation
  • Risk Analysis
  • Metamodelling

Simulation in Practice

  • Simulation in manufacturing
  • Simulation in services
  • Simulation in defence
  • Simulation in healthcare
  • Simulation in the semiconductor industry
  • Simulation practice
  • Simulation education
  • Simulation for disaster response
  • Environmental simulation/ Circular Economy
  • Supply chain simulation

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be presented at the conference. Presentations for contributed papers will be scheduled for 30 minutes, including time for questions and answers. Presentations for beginner/advanced tutorials will be for 90 minutes. If you are interested in presenting a tutorial or organising a panel, please contact Professor Nav Mustafee and Dr Thomas Monks for more details.

Posters of applied or research projects in Simulation will be displayed during the conference. A poster session is provided where delegates have 5 minute to briefly introduce their work.

If you require any further information on paper or poster submission, please contact the programme or poster chairs:

Dr Martino Luis and Dr Alison Harper (Co-Program Chairs) or Dr Okechukwu Okorie (Poster Chair).
