First SIMS EUROSIM Conference on Modelling and Simulation, SIMS EUROSIM 2021, and 62nd International Conference of Scandinavian Simulation Society, SIMS 2021
The First SIMS EUROSIM Conference on Modelling and Simulation, SIMS EUROSIM 2021 will be held as a virtual conference on September 21-23, 2021. The 62nd International Conference of Scandinavian Simulation Society, SIMS 2021, is embedded with SIMS EUROSIM 2021.
The SIMS EUROSIM conference will be organized every third year by SIMS and the Federation of European Simulation Societies, EUROSIM. The background of this conference series is in the 60-years history of Scandinavian Simulation Society, SIMS. The program of the SIMS EUROSIM 2021 Conference will have a multi-conference structure with several special topics related to methodologies and application areas. The program includes invited talks, parallel, special and poster sessions, exhibition and versatile technical and social tours. The conference is organized by Scandinavian Simulation Society (SIMS), Finnish Simulation Forum (FinSim), Finnish Society of Automation and University of Oulu.
The Scandinavian simulation society, SIMS, originates from Scandinaviska Analogmaskinsällskabet (SAMS), which was founded in 1959. The Finnish Society of Automation (FSA), founded in 1953, is a forum for members and all automation users to disseminate technological experience and to advance professional skills. Finnish Simulation Forum (FinSim) is a division of FSA. The Federation of European Simulation Societies, EUROSIM, was set up in 1989. The purpose of EUROSIM is to provide a European forum for regional and national simulation societies to promote the advancement of modelling and simulation in industry, research and development.
**SIMS EUROSIM 2021 conference will be held as a virtual conference.
The modified schedule allows some additional contributions as draft full paper submissions by July 12, 2021, and draft short paper or draft extended abstract submissions by July 27, 2021.
- The length of the scientific papers
should be 6 pages, the maximum is 8 pages.
The peer-reviewed conference articles will be published in Linköping Electronic Conference Proceedings Series (publication level 1 in Finland and Norway). Linköping Electronic Conference Proceedings is an open access archive.
- The length of the industrial papers
should from 4 to 8 pages.
- The length of the short papers
should be from 2 to 3 pages.
The extended abstracts
should be structured into the following sections:
- Title which clearly indicates the research topics.
- Authors, names institute, country and email address . The first/presenting author is responsible for ensuring that all authors have agreed to be co-authors.
- Key words (3-5). Background, Aims, Materials and methods, (Results, Conclusions).
- Maximum length of the abstract is 5000 characters, about 700 words or approximately one A4 page. Figures and tables are allowed and with them the maximum length is two pages.
The short abstracts should be 150 - 300 words. Note! They are required in the information part of the first submissions and should be updated later for the conference program and publications. There will not be any separate review for these abstracts.
Thematic sessions should be devoted to a specific topic within the scope of the conference. The proposals are submitted at EasyChair, see the submission instructions. The contributions do not need to be of the same paper type. The submission procedures, deadlines and the review process follow the guidelines of the appropriate submission type from the draft paper / draft extended abstract phase onwords. The first submission steps will be controlled by the session organizers. EasyChair should be used in all submission phases. The thematic session is indicated by selecting the topic information.
