Call for papers

17th International Conference on Analytical and Stochastic Modelling Techniques and Applications (ASMTA'10)

Cardiff, 14-16 June 2010

OVERVIEW

Methods of analytical and stochastic modelling are widely used in engineering to assess and design technical and information systems, like computer and communication networks, software systems, and distributed systems. The ASMTA conference is a main forum for advancing these techniques and their applications and aims to bring together researchers of academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in analytical, numerical and simulation algorithms for stochastic systems, like real-time UML, (non-)Markovian processes, queueing networks, stochastic Petri nets, process algebras, etc. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE UK-RI Computer Chapter and ECMS - The European Council for Modelling and Simulation.

ASMTA proceedings have been in indexed by ISI - Thompson's Web of Science since 2004. The proceedings of ASMTA 2010 will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

SCOPE & TOPICS

ASMTA 2010 solicits original contributions that include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of stochastic modelling:

PAPER SUBMISSION

Full papers reporting original and unpublished research results on ASMTA topics are solicited. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this conference.

FORMATTING:

The proceedings will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions may already be prepared in LNCS format and must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, tables and references. The cover page should contain title, author names, affiliations, fax and phone numbers and email addresses. Please indicate clearly the corresponding author. Include up to five keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 300 words.

HOW TO SUBMIT:

The paper submission for ASMTA 2010 will only be accepted through the EDAS Paper Submission System accessible from the link on the website. Only papers in PDF will be accepted for reviewing. Submissions as e-mail attachment will not be accepted.

REVIEWING:

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive rigorous peer reviewing. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Selection will be based on full papers.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the conference are expected to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.

CAMERA READY MANUSCRIPT:

Accepted papers will need to be formatted according in LNCS format (see publication guidelines on the conference website). Camera ready papers must be submitted using the EDAS Conference Management System. Only PDF files will be accepted.

BEST PAPER AWARD:

The ASMTA 2010 Committee will select the best paper of the conference for which a certificate will be presented at the end of the conference.
