#################################################################

The workshop aims to bring together experts in model-based,
model-driven and software engineering with experts in simulation
methods and simulation practitioners, with the objective to advance
the state of the art in model-driven simulation engineering.

Model-driven engineering approaches provide considerable advantages to
software systems engineering activities through the provision of
consistent and coherent models at different abstraction levels. As
these models are in a machine readable form, model-driven engineering
approaches can also support the exploitation of computing capabilities
for model reuse, programming code generation, and model checking, for
example.

The definition of a simulation model, its software implementation and
its execution platform form what is known as simulation engineering.
As simulation systems are mainly based on software, these systems can
similarly benefit from model-driven approaches to support automatic
software generation, enhance software quality, and reduce costs,
development effort and time-to-market.

Similarly to systems and software engineering, simulation engineering
can exploit the capabilities of model-driven approaches by increasing
the abstraction level in simulation model specifications and by
automating the derivation of simulator code. Further advantages can be
gained by using modeling languages, such as UML and SysML – but not
exclusively those. For example, modeling languages can be used for
descriptive modeling (to describe the system to be simulated), for
analytical modeling (to specify analytically the simulation of the
same system), and for implementation modeling (to define the
respective simulator).

A partial list of topics of interest includes:

* model-driven simulation engineering processes
* requirements modeling for simulation
* domain specific languages for modeling and simulation
* model transformations for simulation model building
* model transformations for simulation model implementation
* model-driven engineering of distributed simulation systems
* relationship between metamodeling standards (e.g., MOF, Ecore) and
distributed simulation standards (e.g., HLA, DIS)
* metamodels for simulation reuse and interoperability
* model-driven technologies for different simulation paradigms
(discrete event simulation, multi-agent simulation, sketch-based *
simulation, etc.)
* model-driven methods and tools for performance engineering of
simulation systems
* simulation tools for model-driven software performance engineering
* model-driven technologies for simulation verification and validation
* model-driven technologies for data collection and analysis
* model-driven technologies for simulation visualization
* Executable UML
* Executable Architectures
* SysML / Modelica integration
* Simulation Model Portability and reuse
* model-based systems verification and validation
* simulation for model-based systems engineering

To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider scope
and welcomes contributions offering original perspectives on
model-driven engineering of simulation systems.

On-Line Submissions and Publication
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We invite paper submissions in three forms:

1. Full paper (max 8 pages), describing innovative research results.
These papers are eligible for the best paper award and may be invited
for an extended version in a special issue of the SCS SIMULATION
journal.
2. Work-in-progress paper (max 6 pages), describing novel research
ideas and promising work that have not yet been fully evaluated.
3. Short paper (max 6 pages), describing industrial and hands-on
experience on any relevant area (i.e. military, government, space,
etc.).

All the papers must be submitted through the SCS conference management
systems (http://www.softconf.com/scs/DEVS13/) and select the Mod4Sim
track. The submissions must be in PDF format and conform to the SCS
conference template (Word template is available at
http://www.scs.org/upload/documents/templates/ConferenceSubmissionWORDTemplate.doc
, guidelines are available at
http://www.scs.org/PDFs/formattingkit.pdf). All the submitted papers
must be original and not submitted else where. Submitted papers will
be peer reviewed with respect to their quality, originality and
relevance. The authors of the accepted papers must register in advance
for inclusion of their paper in the conference proceedings. Authors of
accepted papers will be invited to update their papers basing on the
reviews, before providing the camera ready.

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and
archived in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.

Authors may contact the organizers for expression of interest and
content appropriateness at any time.
