The term validation is applied to those processes which seek to determine whether or not a simulation is correct with respect to the "real" system. More prosaically, validation is concerned with the question "Are we building the right system?". Verification, on the other hand, seeks to answer the question "Are we building the system right?"

This track is interested in simulation validation methodologies: methodologies to support the process of constructing a simulation model and then aiding the validation of this model to the "real" system. These system models can be discrete, continuous or hybrid. Application areas range from information systems to engineering and scientific systems. Relevant parameters include performance, properties given by formal or informal requirements, exception handling etc. In this conference track, contributions from all areas of simulation and validation are solicited. Topics include, but are not limited to those given below.
