SIMUTools 2009 is the Second International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques. This edition, which builds on the success of the first conference 168 participants from 31 countries), will focus on all aspects of simulation modeling and analysis. High quality papers are sought on simulation tools, methodologies, applications, and practices.

The aim of the conference is to bring academic and industry researchers together with practitioners (from both the simulation community and from the numerous

simulation user communities). The conference will address current and future trends in simulation techniques, models and practices, and foster

interdisciplinary collaborative research in this area. While the main focus of the conference is on simulation tools, the conference also encourages the

submission of broader theoretical and practical research contributions. General areas include, but are not limited to:

* Simulation Techniques and Methodologies: Discrete Event, Web-based, Agent-based, Petri Nets, Fluid-flow simulation, Bond Graphs, Simulation-based

Scheduling, Simulation languages, Simulation interoperability techniques, etc.
* Tools: NS-2/3, OPNET, ATDI ICS, Qualnet, OMNET++, NIIST, Dymola, Matlab/Simulink, open source tools, etc.

The principal points of focus for the conference are computer networks, computer systems, and interdisciplinary work bridging various areas. Position papers

from industry representatives, stimulating collaboration between industry and academia (e.g. posing problems and giving input to the simulation community)

are particularly encouraged. Specific topics include but are not limited to:

* Wireless technologies (vehicular, mesh, ad hoc and sensor networks, cellular systems, IEEE 802.11, 802.15, and 802.16.)
* Mobility models
* Overlay networks
* Network traffic modeling and generation
* Topology generation
* Quality of service
* Networked applications and new networking paradigms
* Energy-efficient computing
* Distributed systems
* Operating systems
* Interconnection networks
* Fault tolerant systems
* Embedded and real time systems
* Logistics
* Security and emergency response
* Health care
* Transportation
* Manufacturing
* Education and training
* Environmental and biological systems
* Social networks
* Public systems
