PADS has a New Name & Expanded Scope! The steering committee for the Workshop on Principles of Advanced and Distributed Simulation (PADS 2005) (formerly called Parallel and Distributed Simulation) continues the expanded scope for PADS in 2005. In addition to the traditional focus on parallel and distributed simulation methods and applications, the workshop now includes all aspects of simulation technology. The steering and program committees look forward to a number of high-quality paper submissions in the following areas.

Sponsors:

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

Important Dates: Send submissions to the Program Co-Chairs no later than January 22, 2010. Electronic submission of postscript or PDF is highly encouraged, using the URL given below. Notification of acceptance will be made by NOTE New Paper Deadline of January 22, 2010

TBD. Camera ready copies must be submitted by April 2, 2010.

Submissions: Papers must be written in English and should not exceed 10 pages using IEEE formatting guidelines. Final versions of accepted papers must not exceed 8 pages, with option to purchase up to two additional pages. Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere.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.

Selected articles from PADS 2010 will be considered for extension and publication within a Special Issue of SCS Simulation.
