Call for Papers

The TMS track aims to provide a forum to present the most recent advances in the Theory
and Foundations of Modeling and Simulation. The focus is on the M&S concepts, methods,
methodology, practice, and toolkits, as well as related lessons learned and challenges. This
track welcomes unpublished papers, and not under consideration in other venues, on the
topics below as well as others that can help deepen and expand the M&S Theory and
Foundations for better understanding and development of computing, physical, and human


* Modeling & Simulation Formalisms (Agents, DEVS, Petri nets, Statecharts, etc.)
* Multi-Paradigm/Multi-Domain Modeling, Multi-Resolution/Multi-Scale Modeling
* Model Composition, Hybrid Modeling Languages, Multi-Modal Modeling
* Model Checking, Formalism-Based Model Debugging, Model Transformation
* Modular Hybrid, Spatially Distributed, and Ultra Large Scale Systems
* Embedded, IoT, and Fog Computing Systems
* Parallel, Distributed, Real-Time, Cloud-Based, and Interactive Simulation
* Co-simulation, Interoperability, Simulation Languages, Numerical Solvers
* Simulation and Model Development Visualization Tools
* Model Libraries, Repositories, and Data Formats


Submission Procedures:

Original, high-quality technical papers are solicited for review, possible presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings. Papers are max 12 pages long with single column format (see author’s kit at Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review orsubmitted to another forum during SpringSim’19 review process.

All submissions will be peer reviewed and feedback will be provided. Authors of papers accepted at symposiums and their tracks are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted. Papers registered and presented will be included in the conference proceedings, possibly archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed in DBLP and SCOPUS.

Short papers (max 6 pages, with same format of regular papers), describing early research efforts, work in progress or position statements, are invited to submit to the overall SpringSim Work-in-Progress track.

Please refer to the SpringSim’20 website or full details about the submission procedure. When submitting your contribution, please make sure to use the paper template available at
