For this scientific conference, it is possible to send in full papers and extended abstracts that will be published in the proceedings. In addition, you can submit short papers or poster presentations, product or vendor presentations, and proposals for panel discussions. The refereeing process for the scientific presentations will be based on full papers and extended abstracts only. Full papers and extended abstracts are due to arrive BEFORE OCTOBER 5, 1997 at:

European Simulation Office
The Society for Computer Simulation International
University of Ghent, Coupure Links 653, B-9000 Ghent, Belgium
Tel. (Office) : +32.9.2337790; Fax: +32.9.2234941
Tel.+Fax (Private): +32.59.800.804

in printed form (four copies) or preferably via E-mail (uuencoded or binhexed, zipped, if possible in PostScript, or -if not possible- in Word, WordPerfect, or LaTeX format). Only original papers, written in English, which have not previously been published elsewhere will be accepted.

The length of the full paper should be about 10-14 typed pages, resulting in 6-8 two-column 10 point paper for the published paper in the proceedings.

The length of an extended abstract should be such, that the paper can be worked out into a 6 page two-column 10 point paper for the published paper in the proceedings.

During review, the submitted FULL PAPERS or EXTENDED ABSTRACTS can be accepted by the programme committee, as either an extended (8 pages) paper if excellent, or as a regular (6 pages) paper. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the International Program Committee.

It is also possible to submit a SHORT PAPER (1-2 page submission) to the conference. Short papers should also be structured as a scientific paper and will be refereed by at least one member of the Program Committee, but the rules are applied less strict. Short papers are an ideal outlet for current research or industrial applications. Short papers do not appear in the main volume of the conference proceedings. Presentation time is shorter than that of full papers.

In short:

Submissions, written in English, must clearly indicate the name, affiliation, address, phone number and email address of the primary authors. They must clearly state what is new and point out significant results. In case of multi-authors, one author should be identified as the corresponding author for the paper.

Only original papers which have not previously been published elsewhere will be accepted.

If you are not sure whether your paper will fit into the conference, you can send in an abstract of your paper to the European Simulation Office, or directly to the appropriate conference chair of the subconference. The Office will make sure your paper gets to the chairman of the appropriate conference. You will receive an answer whether it is advisable to send in a submission within one week. In case of sending in an abstract, please state your e-mail and fax number to speed up communication.


Other types of submissions

Please send in the other types of submissions (product presentation, discussion session, workshop, user group meeting, and panel) to the European Simulation Office.


Refereeing and Camera-ready papers

The notification of acceptance or rejection, in combination with suggestions to improve the paper, will be sent by NOVEMBER 15, 1997. Along with the notification of acceptance, an author kit with complete instructions for preparing a camera-ready copy for the Proceedings will be sent to authors of accepted abstracts or drafts . The camera-ready copy of the papers (can be submitted by e-mail in electronic form: a uuencoded or binhexed, zipped PostScript file) must be in by DECEMBER 5, 1997. In order to guarantee a high-quality conference, the camera ready papers will be checked as well, to check see the suggestions of the program committee have been incorporated.
