2021 ANNUAL MODELING AND SIMULATION CONFERENCE (ANNSIM'21)
July 19 - 22, 2021
George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, USA
CALL FOR PAPERS
PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MARCH 1, 2021
The Annual Modeling and Simulation Conference is a new annual conference of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS) after merging SpringSim and SummerSim into a single conference starting from 2021. Built on strengths of SpringSim and SummerSim, the 2021 Annual Modeling and Simulation Conference is the flagship conference of SCS to cover state-of-the-art developments in Modeling & Simulation (M&S). We invite original contributions to the theory and practice of modeling and simulation in all scientific and engineering disciplines.
The 2021 Annual Modeling and Simulation Conference will be a hybrid conference accommodating both physical and virtual participation. The physical venue of the conference will be at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. The conference includes keynote speeches presented by technology and industry leaders, technical sessions, as well as professional development tutorials. Scientists, engineers, managers, educators, and business professionals who develop or use M&S methodologies and tools are invited to participate and present original contributions.
SCS will be closely following the advice of institutional health officers, regional health authorities and, for larger conferences, national guidance for travel as well as the organizers for the Annual Modeling and Simulation Conference for updates. Preparedness for the conference in a COVID-19 world will include hand sanitation stations, required masks, social distancing in all general and breakout rooms, and a sanitized check in registration table.

General Technical Papers
To see the Author's Kit, go to: https://scs.org/authorskit/.
Authors of accepted papers 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. All accepted research papers will be included in the conference proceedings and may be archived in the ACM Digital Library, IEEE Xplore (approval pending), and indexed in DBLP Computer Science Bibliography and SCOPUS; some exceptions apply. Best papers will also be considered for a special issue of SIMULATION: Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International.
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 https://scs.org/authorskit). Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during ANNSIM’21 review process.
Tutorial proposals should be two pages in length. Interested authors are invited to submit an accompanying optional paper: maximum of 12 pages long, with a minimum of five pages, with single column format.
Poster & Demos
Submissions for Posters and Demos consist of a 2-page extended abstract paper. All abstracts should describe the research motivation, M&S relevance of the problems being addressed, proposed methodology, and results of completed research.
