The workshop aims to bring together experts in model-based, model-driven 
and software engineering with experts in simulation methods and simulation 
practitioners, with the objective to advance the state of the art in 
model-driven simulation engineering. 

Model-driven engineering approaches provide considerable advantages to 
software systems engineering activities through the provision of consistent 
and coherent models at different abstraction levels. As these models are in 
a machine readable form, model-driven engineering approaches can also 
support the exploitation of computing capabilities for model reuse, 
programming code generation, and model checking, for example. 

The definition of a simulation model, its software implementation and its 
execution platform form what is known as simulation engineering. As 
simulation systems are mainly based on software, these systems can 
similarly benefit from model-driven approaches to support automatic 
software generation, enhance software quality, and reduce costs, 
development effort and time-to-market. 

Similarly to systems and software engineering, simulation engineering can 
exploit the capabilities of model-driven approaches by increasing the 
abstraction level in simulation model specifications and by automating the 
derivation of simulator code. Further advantages can be gained by using 
modeling languages, such as UML and SysML – but not exclusively those. For 
example, modeling languages can be used for descriptive modeling (to 
describe the system to be simulated), for analytical modeling (to specify 
analytically the simulation of the same system), and for implementation 
modeling (to define the respective simulator). 

A partial list of topics of interest includes: 

* model-driven simulation engineering processes 
* requirements modeling for simulation 
* domain specific languages for modeling and simulation 
* model transformations for simulation model building 
* model transformations for simulation model implementation 
* model-driven engineering of distributed simulation systems 
* relationship between metamodeling standards (e.g., MOF, Ecore) and 
distributed simulation standards (e.g., HLA, DIS) 
* metamodels for simulation reuse and interoperability 
* model-driven technologies for different simulation paradigms (discrete 
event simulation, multi-agent simulation, sketch-based * simulation, etc.) 
* model-driven methods and tools for performance engineering of simulation 
systems 
* simulation tools for model-driven software performance engineering 
* model-driven technologies for simulation verification and validation 
* model-driven technologies for data collection and analysis 
* model-driven technologies for simulation visualization 
* Executable UML 
* Executable Architectures 
* SysML / Modelica integration 
* Simulation Model Portability and reuse 
* model-based systems verification and validation 
* simulation for model-based systems engineering 

To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider scope and 
welcomes contributions offering original perspectives on model-driven 
engineering of simulation systems.

On-Line Submissions and Publication
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We invite paper submissions in three forms:

1. Full paper (max 8 pages), describing innovative research results. These 
papers are eligible for the best paper award and may be invited for an 
extended version in a special issue of the SCS SIMULATION journal.
2. Work-in-progress paper (max 6 pages), describing novel research ideas 
and promising work that have not yet been fully evaluated.
3. Short paper (max 6 pages), describing industrial and hands-on experience 
on any relevant area (i.e. military, government, space, etc.).

All the papers must be submitted through the SCS conference management 
systems (http://www.softconf.com/scs/DEVS14/) and select the Mod4Sim track. 
The submissions must be in PDF format and conform to the SCS conference 
template (Word template is available at 
http://www.scs.org/upload/documents/templates/ConferenceSubmissionWORDTemplate.doc 
, guidelines are available at http://www.scs.org/PDFs/formattingkit.pdf). 
All the submitted papers must be original and not submitted else where. 
Submitted papers will be peer reviewed with respect to their quality, 
originality and relevance. The authors of the accepted papers must register 
in advance for inclusion of their paper in the conference proceedings. 
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to update their papers basing on 
the reviews, before providing the camera ready.

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and 
archived in both the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library. 

Authors may contact the organizers for expression of interest and content 
appropriateness at any time.
