PADS Has An Expanded Scope! The steering committee for the workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation (PADS) has approved an expanded scope scope for work published and presented in this conference. In addition to the traditional focus on parallel and distributed simulation methods and applications, the conference will now include all aspects of simulation technology. The steering and program committee look forward to a number of high- quality paper submissions in the following areas.


ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation (SIGSIM), IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Simulation (IEEE-TCSIM), and Society for Computer Simulation (SCS)

Important Dates: Send submissions to the program co-chairs no later than December 15, 2002. Electronic submission of postscript or PDF is highly encouraged, using the URL given below. Hard copy submissions are allowed, but six copies must be received by the program co-chairs by the deadline. Notification of acceptance will be made by March 1, 2003. Camera ready copies must be submitted by April 1, 2003.

Submissions: Papers must be written in English and should not exceed 5000 words. Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Each submission must be accompanied by the following information: a short abstract, a complete list of authors and their affiliations, a contact person for correspondence, 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, bibliographic references should be modified so as not to reveal the identities of the authors.
