37th International ECMS Conference on Modelling and Simulation

ECMS 2023

collocating with


Florence, Italy, June 20th – June 23rd, 2023

Join the leading scientific forum for European simulation experts

The International European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS) is the annual conference of the European Council for Modelling and Simulation, an independent forum of European academics and practitioners dedicated to research, development, and applications of modelling and simulation. ECMS 2023 is hosted by the University of Florence, Italy and is happy to announce its collocation with this year’s ASMTA EPEW conferences.

The human capacity to abstract complex systems and phenomena into simplified models has played a critical role in the rapid evolution of our modern industrial processes and scientific research. As a science and an art, Modelling and Simulation have been one of the core enablers of this remarkable human trace, and have become a topic of great importance for researchers and practitioners. The increasing availability of massive computational resources and interconnectivity has helped fuel tremendous advances in the field, collapsing previous barriers and redefining new horizons for its capabilities and applications.

Call for contributions:

The International European Conference on Modelling and Simulation is ranked B in CORE ranking and is dedicated to help define the state of the art in different fields involved in creating, defining, and building innovative simulation systems, simulation and modelling tools and techniques, and novel applications for modelling and simulation. Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original results in all related areas of modelling and simulation. Published papers will be sent for indexation to DBLP, SCOPUS, ISI, INSPEC and DOI. High quality selected papers will be considered for publication in a focused issue with some international journals. An author of each accepted paper must register and present the paper at the conference. Detailed instructions for submission are available on the conference website.

ECMS 2023 is happy to announce our two keynote speakers:

Wil van der Aalst

Professor at RWTH Aachen University, leading the Process and Data Science (PADS) group
Chief Scientist at Celonis

Christine Currie

Professor of Operational Research at University of Southampton, United Kingdom
Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of Simulation

Best paper awards:

All submitted papers will be evaluated for the Best Conference Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award.

Special Issue:

A Special Issue on Journal of Simulation (ISSN: 1747-7778; Q1 on Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, Modeling and Simulation) focused on a selection of discussed topics will be presented during the conference.

Local attractions:

Florence is a city in Central Italy and the capital city of the Tuscany region. It was a centre of medieval European trade and finance and one of the wealthiest cities of that era. It is considered by many academics to have been the birthplace of the Renaissance, becoming a major artistic, cultural, commercial, political, economic and financial center. UNESCO declared the Historic Centre of Florence a World Heritage Site in 1982. Forbes ranked it as the most beautiful city in the world in 2010. Detailed information could be found in the following website: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence
