ACM SIGSIM Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation 

Montréal, Quebec, CANADA – May 19-22 2013 


Building upon 26 years of history and the reputation for high quality
papers, PADS (the Workshop on Principles of Advanced and Distributed
Simulation) is evolving to become the premier conference of ACMSIGSIM.
The new conference will be entitled “ACM-SIGSIM Conference on the
Principles of Advanced Discrete Simulation,” and will go by the name
SIGSIM-PADS. The conference will be solely sponsored by ACM-SIGSIM and
willfocus on the intersection of computer science and modeling and

SIGSIM-PADS is soliciting high-quality papers in all aspects of
simulation technology, including (but not restricted to) the following

·      Advanced modeling techniques, and their execution using novel
simulation algorithms
·      Agent-based modeling and simulation.
·      Algorithms and methods for parallel or distributed simulation,
including synchronization, scheduling, memory management, and load
·      Applications of large-scale or distributed simulation methods.
·      Development of advanced simulation engines
·      Distributed simulation.
·      GPU, FPGA and hybrid architecture acceleration.
·      Integration of simulation with other IT systems, including
automatic simulation model generation and initialization and simulation
based decision-making.
·      Mechanisms for efficient design of experiments.
·      Modeling and Simulation applied to solveproblems in previously
difficult or impossible domains.
·      Online and symbiotic simulation.
·      Parallel algorithms and high performancesimulation.
·      Real-Time and Embedded Simulation
·      Simulation as emulation of real systems.
·      Simulation visualization techniques.
·      Techniques for constructing scalable simulations.
·      Tools and techniques for interoperability of simulations.

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication
elsewhere. Each submission must be accompanied by the following

·      a short abstract, 
·      a complete list of authors and their affiliations, 
·      a contact person for correspondence, and
·      post and email addresses. 

All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process,
i.e., the identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each
other. To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and affiliations should
not appear in the paper, and bibliographic references should be suitably

Papers must be written in English and should not exceed 12 pages using
ACM Formatting, found at

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair submission system, 
All accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library and
DBLP. Extended versions of the best papers in the conference will be
submitted for Journal publication (details TBA).
