Track Description

Designing complex systems has critical implications at the strategic, tactical and operational levels for organizations in public and private sectors. Its processes often follow an iterative and incremental path where multiple actors are involved. Design faults are difficult to foresee and could entail high costs. To tackle these problems, Simulation Based Design (SBD) allows designers to study and evaluate design alternatives, gaining better understanding of the designed system. Although SBD holds great potential, its realization is hindered by the fact that M&S is a time intensive and highly specialized activity which, with the current M&S methodology and tools, has not been fully integrated in the design process. This track provides SBD researchers with a platform to exchange their recent research ideas, experiences and results, and to discuss related topics.


The topics of this SDB track include, but are not limited to, the following areas.


 Theory and Methodologies of SBD

 Requirement analysis

 SBD processes and frameworks

 SBD environments, tools and techniques

 Model verification and validation in SBD

 Case studies

 Data integration in SBD

 Data visualization in SBD

 SBD optimization

 Risk analysis

 Model generation in SBD

 User interface design of SBD tools


Nevertheless, different topics concerning Simulation Based Design are welcome as well. Authors are kindly invited to include in their papers and presentations all the research works, case studies and application both theoretical and applied.
