Here is the Final Program and Schedule and the full set of Multimedia Submissions, which are now available! Contact the Society for Computer Simulation for the availability of the CD-ROM distributed at the conference.

The aim of this conference is to focus on problems and perspectives of the Internet and World Wide Web as a tool for modeling and simulation. This conference is sponsored by the Society for Computer Simulation International (SCS). Internet and modeling practitioners are encouraged to submit proposals based on their applications and demonstrations of computer simulation techniques.

WHAT IS WEB-BASED SIMULATION?

Web-based simulation represents a convergence of computer simulation methodologies and applications within the World Wide Web (WWW). There are many possible bridge areas between the web and the simulation field. Web-based simulation does not mean only "distributed simulation" or "simulation documentation." The introduction and wide-spread use of the web suggests that there are many areas where web science and technology will meet simulation to provide impetus to both fields. Here is a sampling of some of the recent simulation projects placed into the framework of the web. This will give you an idea of some of the possibilities.

RELEVANCE OF YOUR PAPER TO THE CONFERENCE THEME

All submissions should be oriented around either or both of the following two themes: 1) a connection with the current web, or 2) a connection with the future state of the web. In other words, we will not be accepting submissions unless they address at least one of these themes. For theme 2, be sure to specify the difference between the current web and your envisioning of the future web, and state explicitly how the web will evolve in that direction.
