Call for Papers

The TMS Track provides a forum to present the most recent advances in the Theory and Foundations of Modeling and Simulation. The focus is on the Modeling and Simulation concepts, methods, methodology, practice, and toolkits. The TMS Track welcomes unpublished papers on the topics below as well as others that can help deepen and expand the M&S Theory and Foundations for better understanding and development of computing, physical, and human systems.


  • Modeling & Simulation Formalisms (Actors, DEVS, Petri nets, Statecharts, etc.)
  • Multi-formalism Modeling, Hybrid Modeling Languages, Multi-Modal Modeling
  • Multi-Resolution/Multi-Scale Modeling, Multi-Paradigm/Multi-Domain Modeling,
  • Model Checking, Formalism-Based Model Debugging, Model Transformation
  • Parallel, Distributed, Real-Time, Cloud-Based, and Interactive Simulation
  • Modular Hybrid, Spatially Distributed, and Ultra Large-Scale Systems
  • Co-simulation, Interoperability, Simulation Languages, Numerical Solvers
  • Embedded, IoT, and Fog Computing Systems
  • Model Development and Simulation Visualization Tools
  • Model Libraries, Repositories, and Data Formats

Submission Procedures:

Original, high-quality technical papers are solicited for review, possible presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings. Papers are max 12 pages long with single column format (see author’s kit at Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review orsubmitted to another forum during ANNSIM’22 review process.

All submissions will be peer reviewed and feedback will be provided. Authors of papers accepted at symposiums and their tracks are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted. Papers registered and presented will be included in the conference proceedings, archived in the ACM Digital Library, IEEE Digital Library (pending) and indexed in DBLP and SCOPUS.

Please refer to the ANNSIM ’22 website for full details about the submission procedure. When submitting your contribution, please make sure to use the paper template available at
