SCS is an international non-profit organization founded in 1952. On a yearly basis SCS organizes 6 Simulation Conferences worldwide, cooperates in 2 others, and publishes the monthly magazine Simulation, a quarterly Transactions, and books. For more information, please tick the appropriate box on the reply card. During ESS'94 the following events will be presented besides the scientific program: Professional Seminars The first day of the conference is dedicated to professional seminars, which will be presented for those interested participants to expose the state-of-art overview of each of the five main themes of this conference. Participation fee is included in the conference registration fee. If you have suggestions for other advanced tutorial topics, please contact one of the program chairmen. Exhibits An exhibition will be held in the central hall where all participants meet for coffee and tea. There will be a special exhibition section for universities and non-profit organizations, and a special section for publishers and commercial stands. If you would like to participate in the exhibition, please contact the SCS European Office. Vendor Sessions, Demonstrations and Video Presentations For demonstrations or video sessions, please contact SCS International at the European Office. Special sessions within the scientific program will be set up for vendor presentations. Other Organized Meetings Several User Group meetings for simulation languages and tools will be organized on Monday. It is possible to have other meetings on Monday as well. If you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact the Conference Chairman. We will be happy to provide a meeting room and other necessary equipment. VENUE Istanbul, the only city in the world built on two continents, stands on the shores of the Istanbul Bogazi (Bosphorus) where the waters of the Black Sea mingle with those of the Sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. Here on this splendid site, Istanbul guards the precious relics of three empires of which she has been the capital; a unique link between East and West, past and present. Istanbul has infinite variety: museums, ancient churches, palaces, great mosques, bazaars and the Bosphorus. However long you stay, just a few days or longer, your time will be wonderfully filled in this unforgettable city. Bogazici University, which will host ESS'94 has its origins in Robert College, first American College founded outside of the United States in 1863. It has a well deserved reputation for academic excellence and accordingly attracts students from among the best and brightest in Turkey. The University is composed of four faculties, six institutes (offering graduate programs), and two other schools. The conference location is Istanbul Dedeman, an international five star hotel, which is located in the center of the city with a spectacular view of the Bosphorus. It is in a very close district to the most of the historical places as well as to the business center. For the conference participants the single room special rate is 65 US dollars. SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM The 1994 SCS European Simulation Symposium is structured around the following five major themes. A parallel track will be devoted to each of the five topics. The conference language is English. * Advances in Simulation Methodology and Practices, e.g.: - Advanced Modelling, Experimentation, and Output Analysis and Display - Object-Oriented System Design and Simulation - Optimization of Simulation Models - Validation and Verification Techniques - Mixed Methodology Modelling - Special Simulation Tools and Environments * Artificial Intelligence in Simulation, e.g.: - Knowledge-based Simulation Environments and Knowledge Bases - Knowledge-based System Applications - Reliability Assurance through Knowledge-based Techniques - Mixed Qualitative and Quantitative Simulation - Neural Networks in Simulation * Innovative Simulation Technologies: - Virtual Reality - Multimedia Applications * Industrial Simulation, e.g. Simulation in: - Design and Manufacturing, CAD, CIM - Process Control - Robotics and Automation - Concurrent Engineering, Scheduling * Computer and Telecommunication Systems, e.g.: - Circuit Simulation, Fault Simulation - Computer Systems - Telecommunication Devices and Systems - Networks INVITED SPEAKERS Focusing on the main tracks of the conference, invited speakers will give special in-depth presentations in plenary sessions, which will be included in the proceedings of the conference. BEST PAPER AWARDS The 1994 European Simulation Symposium will award the best five papers, one in each of the five tracks. From these five papers, the best overall paper of the conference will be chosen. The awarded papers will be published in an International Journal, if necessary after incorporating modifications in the paper. DEADLINES AND REQUIREMENTS Extended abstracts (300 words, 2-3 pages for full and 150 words, 1 page for short papers typewritten without drawings and tables) are due to arrive in QUADRUPLICATE at the office of Ali Riza Kaylan, at the Industrial Engineering Department of Bogazici University, TURKEY before April 12, 1994. Only original papers, written in English, which have not previously been published elsewhere will be accepted. In case you want to organize a panel discussion, please contact the program chairmen. Authors are expected to register early (at a reduced fee) and to attend the conference at their own expense to present the accepted papers. If early registration and payment are not made, the paper will not be published in the conference proceedings. In the case of multi-authors, one author should be identified as the person who will act as correspondent for the paper. Abstracts will be reviewed by 3 members of the International Program Committee for full papers and one member for short papers. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by April 30, 1994. An author kit with complete instruction for preparing a camera-ready copy for the proceedings will be sent to authors of accepted abstracts. The camera-ready copy of the papers must be in by July 15, 1994. Only the full papers, which are expected to be 5-6 pages long, will be published in the conference proceedings. In order to guarantee a high-quality conference, the full papers will be reviewed as well, to check whether the suggestions of the program committee have been incorporated. The nominees for the best paper awards will be selected as well.
