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
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.
TOPICS & APPLICATIONS:
- Multimedia-enriched simulation, modeling and interactive
- Java-based simulation environments
- Web-based modeling using UML and other methodologies
- Web-based workflow modeling and simulation
- Web-based modeling with groupware
- Modeling of autonomous agents
- Integration of DIS and HLA with Web technologies
- Parallel and distributed simulation on the Internet
- Integration of VRML with traditional simulation
- Distributed model, input and output-data set repositories
- Hypermedia knowledge about geometry and dynamics
- Modeling electronic commerce and online business re-engineering
- Integrating distributed object technologies into simulation
(OLE/COM, CORBA, HLA, DIS)
DEADLINES and SUBMISSION:
- Want to chair a session, submit a tutorial, or exhibit your
software or hardware at this conference? If so, send email to the
co-chairs by May 30, 1997: Paul Fishwick or David Hill.
- We are supporting and requesting full multimedia submissions.
Questions on the submission process should be directed to
Roger Smith. To create a
submission, we first need to receive an extended abstract in
HTML that is roughly the equivalent of 1 to 3 single-space printed
pages. The HTML abstract will help us to put your submission on
line. The extended abstract should be composed of a 1) title, 2) author
list, and 3) body, and will be created in the form of a
compressed multimedia file. For the author list, please specify
the entire postal address along with phone/fax, E-mail address,
and web home page if you have one. Please note important information on
the submission format.
This format holds for structuring the extended abstract as
well as for the full submission. Send the abstract as a compressed
multimedia file using anonymous ftp to
by June 15, 1997.
- Notification of general suitability for the conference will be made
by August 1, 1997.
- Once an abstract has been accepted, the following step is to send
your submission using anonymous ftp to
by August 31, 1997.
- Authors must submit a final hardcopy paper, conference
registration with payment, and copyright transfer form
(from an author kit that you will receive in the mail) by no later
than October 3, 1997.
- The 1) Compressed Postscript file,
and 2) Compressed Multimedia file must be sent
using anonymous ftp to
by October 31, 1997.
