Proceedings of the 9th EAI International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques can be now found on ACM DL.



SIMUTools 2016 is the 9th edition of the annual International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques. Being held in Prague, Czech Republic, The conference is being held in cooperation with ACM SIGSIM. the conference focuses on a broad range of research challenges in the field of simulation, modelling and analysis, addressing current and future trends in simulation techniques, models, practices and software. The conference is dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary collaborative research in these areas and across a wide spectrum of application domains.


Building on the success of the previous eight editions (2008-2015), this year's edition will provide an exciting forum for interaction among academic and industry researchers together with practitioners from both the simulation community and the different user communities.



  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
  • Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: EI, ISI Thomson's Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, MAS, EBSCO, as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
  • All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to ACM Digital Library.


SIMUTools' general topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Simulation methods: discrete event, parallel and distributed simulation, time synchronization, load balancing and migration, model partitioning, hybrid simulation, simulation-interoperation, multi-resolution and multi-scale simulation

  • Simulation techniques: service-oriented, agent-based, web-based, component-based, symbiotic simulation

  • Simulation software: environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks

  • Simulation performance: GPU-based simulation, simulation in the cloud, scalability, performance analysis

  • Modeling formalisms: DEVS, Petri Nets, process algebras, state charts, and others

  • Simulation verification, validation, accreditation, and analysis: benchmark models, simulation-based verification, workflows, simulation experiment design, and optimization

  • Simulation packages:widely used frameworks such as Modelica, ns-2/3, OPNET, Qualnet, OMNET++, and other open source software for modeling and simulation
