Call For Papers
The journal Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory provides a forum for original, high-quality papers dealing with any aspect of systems simulation and modelling.

The journal aims at being a reference and a powerful tool to all those professionally active and/or interested in the methods and applications of simulation. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed and must significantly contribute to modelling and simulation in general or use modelling and simulation in application areas.

Paper submission is solicited on:

• theoretical aspects of modelling and simulation including formal modelling, model-checking, random number generators, sensitivity analysis, variance reduction techniques, experimental design, meta-modelling, methods and algorithms for validation and verification, selection and comparison procedures etc.;

• methodology and application of modelling and simulation in any area, including computer systems, networks, real-time and embedded systems, mobile and intelligent agents, manufacturing and transportation systems, management, engineering, biomedical engineering, economics, ecology and environment, education, transaction handling, etc.;

• simulation languages and environments including those, specific to distributed computing, grid computing, high performance computers or computer networks, etc.;

• distributed and real-time simulation, simulation interoperability;

• tools for high performance computing simulation, including dedicated architectures and parallel computing.

Papers covering applications should be presented in such a way that the separate steps in the process, such as model development, computer implementation of the derived model, mathematical and scalability problems encountered and validation/verification with real data become transparent to all readers.

Theory may play an important role in a paper, but it should be presented in the context of its applicability to the work being described. For application-oriented readers it is essential that theoretical papers should cover the following aspects: why the theory is relevant and how it can be applied, what is the novelty of the approach and what are the benefits and objectives of a new theory, method or algorithm; what experience has been obtained in applying the approach and what innovations did result.

(Variations from these prototypes, such as comprehensive surveys of active research areas, critical reviews of existing work, and book reviews, will be considered provided they make a clear contribution to the field.)

Special issues on specific topics will be published from time to time; proposals for such issues are invited.

Special Issue on Modeling and Simulation of Hybrid Clouds
Submission Date: 2020-08-31

As cloud computing continues to gain momentum, a wide range of applications moved to the cloud. Issues involved with this paradigm shift, such as security and cost, resulted in the adoption of hybrid clouds, especially by organizations with large on-premise infrastructure investments. A hybrid cloud is a combination of private and public clouds. It provides the best of both worlds, a balanced control on performance and security. Applications in hybrid clouds can move between private and public clouds for flexibility and efficient deployment. Additional public cloud resources can be utilized for outsourcing applications when private resources cannot cope with the workload. However, the adoption of hybrid clouds entails many challenges, such as QoS and security-aware workload offloading, cost-efficient public cloud utilization, effective resource management and load balancing. The scope of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art research covering a variety of concepts in hybrid clouds, particularly focused on modelling, simulation and performance evaluation of such platforms. Papers for the Special Issue must provide a substantial novel contribution, and authors must carefully situate their work with regard to the relevant scientific literature. They must clearly address research issues of Hybrid Clouds and show the role of modeling and simulation in this research area. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Performance evaluation and modeling of hybrid clouds Enterprise applications and services in hybrid clouds Real-time applications in hybrid clouds Storage and data architectures in hybrid clouds Resource management, load balancing and scheduling in hybrid clouds Security and privacy in hybrid clouds Cost-saving strategies in hybrid clouds Big data analytics in hybrid clouds Energy efficiency of hybrid cloud infrastructures Hybrid clouds integration with fog computing, the Internet of Things and multi-clouds
