Call for Paper

Scope and Background

Computer-based modelling and simulation have become useful tools to facilitate humans to understand systems in different domains, such as physics, astrophysics, chemistry, biology, economics, engineering and social science. A complex system is featured with a large number of interacting components (agents, processes, etc.), whose aggregate activities are nonlinear and self-organized. Complex systems are hard to be simulated or modelled by using traditional computational approaches due to complex relationships among system components, distributed features of resources, and dynamics of environments. Meanwhile, smart systems such as multi-agent systems have demonstrated advantages and great potentials in modelling and simulating complex systems.

The 5th International Workshop on Smart Simulation and Modelling for Complex Systems (SSMCS2020) aims to bring together researchers in both artificial intelligence and system modelling/simulation to discuss research challenges and cutting-edge techniques in smart simulation and modelling.

The topics of SSMCS include but are not limited to:

  • Agent-based simulation for complex systems
  • Agent-based modelling for complex systems
  • Large-scale simulations
  • Network simulation and modelling
  • Environment and ecosystem simulation and modelling
  • Smart Grid/Service simulation and modelling
  • Simulation of social and economic organizations
  • Simulation of social complexity
  • Cooperation, coordination, negotiation and self-organisation in complex systems
  • Market-based model and simulation
  • Transportation model and simulation
  • Crowd model and simulation
  • Evacuation model and simulation

Smart simulation and modelling is an important field in AI. We believe that this special session will attract attention from not only AI researchers, but also domain experts who are interested in the applications of AI techniques in system modelling and simulation.

Important Dates

  • May 17, 2020 TBC - Submission of contributions to workshops
  • June 8, 2020 TBC - Workshop paper acceptance notification
  • June 21, 2020 TBC - Deadline for final camera-ready copy
  • July 11, 2020 Jan 2021 - IJCAI2020 Workshops

Submission

We encourage submission in IJCAI2020 format. You can find the format requirements on the website of IJCAI2020 https://www.ijcai.org/authors_kit. The length of the papers should not be more than 6 pages. All submissions must include the author's name(s), affiliation(s), and email address(es).

Please submit your paper via Easychair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ssmcs2020

All accepted papers will be provided an oral presentation at the workshop. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two PC members or experts in the field. Multiple submission policies for papers: papers that are being submitted to other conferences, whether verbatim or in essence, must reflect this fact on the title page. Papers that do not meet this requirement are subject to rejection without review.

Post-Proceeding Publication

The extended version of the accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings (Special issus of Jounral) of the workshop (to be confirmed).
