The 6th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications - SIMULTECH 2016

Published on: 4th March 2016
The sixth edition of the SIMULTECH conference (The International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications) organized by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) will take place from 29 to 31 of July 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The purpose of SIMULTECH is to bring together researchers, engineers, applied mathematicians and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of system simulation. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering on one side domain independent methodologies and technologies and on the other side practical work developed in specific application areas. The specific topics listed under each of these tracks highlight the interest of this conference in aspects related to computing, including Conceptual Modeling, Agent Based Modeling and Simulation, Interoperability, Ontologies, Knowledge Based Decision Support, Petri Nets, Business Process Modeling and Simulation, amongst others.
One of the most important contributions that SIMULTECH brings about is the creation of a high-level forum in collaboration with the most prestigious internationally recognized experts, including names such as Mohammad S. Obaidat (Fordham University, United States) as a Conference Chair. Yuri Merkuryev (Riga Technical University, Latvia) and Tuncer Ören (honorary - University of Ottawa, Canada) as a Program Chairs. SIMULTECH 2016 will have invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas: Francesco Casella, Politecnico di Milano, Italy); Catholijn Jonker (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands) and Yaman Barlas (Bogaziçi University, Turkey).

 All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer in a Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series book.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

SIMULTECH 2016 will be held in conjunction with ICINCO 2016.

INSTICC is the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, a scientific, non-profit, association whose main goals are to serve the international scientific community by promoting, developing and disseminating knowledge in the areas of information systems and technologies, control and communications. To achieve these goals, INSTICC is committed to integrate and support many activities relevant for the international scientific community, including:

  • Promotion of the mobility of renowned researchers, usually involved as keynote speakers at INSTICC events, so that they can share their knowledge with conference delegates;
  • Providing grants to support the presence of many young researchers from all over the world, especially from regions facing economic difficulties, who wish to attend INSTICC conferences;
  • Publication of proceedings, books and journals - some of them in cooperation with distinguished international publishers - widely indexed and made available at appropriate digital libraries;
  • Sponsorship of research projects, proposed by universities and R&D institutes, related to INSTICC main interest areas;
  • Collaboration with international associations, who may technically  co-sponsor INSTICC events, as well as with companies involved in R&D or supporting of the international academic community. 
Over the years, these initiatives have brought together a large and very diversified international community spread over more than 141 countries, including more than 500 high profile keynote speakers, over 15600 specialized reviewers and about 46000 authors.
