Conference on Conceptual Modeling and Simulation

Part of the 1st Mediterranean Multiconference on Modeling and Simulation Genoa, Italy, October 28-30 2004

Sponsored by SCS Mediterranean Council

This new conference is a forum devoted to the discussion of advances in conceptual modeling and simulation. Modeling and simulation activities have been enriched by contributions from complex domains that include dynamic structure, mobile agents and hybrid systems. Conceptual specification can give a major contribute to the design of more advanced simulation languages and environments that will support better to understand and maintain models. Conceptual models, while focusing on clear and precise semantics, provide a framework for describing and achieving model inter-operability, a key issue in model reuse. This conference is to serve as a meeting to exchange ideas between researchers working on different modeling approaches including, but not restricted, to DEVS, Petri nets, Timed-automata, etc.
Conference welcomes contributions with a strong background in conceptual models, related (but not limited), to the following topics:
  • Component-based Modeling and Simulation
  • DEVS Formalism
  • Dynamic Structure Systems
  • Formal Representation of Standards (i.e.HLA)
  • Formalism Equivalence
  • Hierarchical and Modular Systems
  • Hybrid Systems
  • Mobile Agents
  • Model Interoperability
  • Petri Nets
  • Real-time Systems
  • Verification and Validation

  • Submission

    Please submit the full paper in PDF format (6 pages, double column, single spacing) using the online submission form: (available soon)
    Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings edited by the SCS. For any questions about the conference please contact conference chairs at:,
