################################################################# 

Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is increasingly becoming a central activity in the design of new systems and in the analysis of existing systems because it enables designers and researchers to investigate systems behavior through virtual representations. For this reason, M&S is gaining a primary role in many industrial and research fields, such as space, critical infrastructures, manufacturing, emergency management, biomedical systems and sustainable future. However, as the complexity of the investigated systems increases and the types of investigations widens, the cost of M&S activities increases for the more complex models and for the communications among a wider number and variety of M&S stakeholders (e.g., sub-domain experts, simulator users, simulator engineers, and final system users). To address the increasing costs of M&S activities, collaborative technologies must be introduced to support these activities by fostering the sharing and reuse of models, by facilitating the communications among M&S stakeholders, and more generally by integrating processes, tools and platforms. 

Aside from seeking applications of collaborative technologies to M&S activities, the track seeks innovative contributions that deal with the application of M&S practices to the design of collaborative environments. These environments are continuously becoming more complex, and therefore their design requires systematic approaches to meet the required quality of collaboration. This is important for two reasons: to reduce rework activities on the actual collaborative environment, and to maximize the productivity and the quality of the process the collaborative environment supports. M&S offers the methodologies and tools for such investigations and therefore it can be used to improve the quality of collaborative environments. 

A non–exhaustive list of topics of interest includes:
* collaborative environments for M&S

* collaborative Systems of Systems M&S

* workflow modelling for collaborative environments and processes

* agent-based M&S

* collaborative distributed simulation

* collaborative component-based M&S

* net-centric M&S

* web-based M&S

* model sharing and reuse

* model building and evaluation

* modeling and simulation of business processes

* modeling for collaboration

* simulation-based performance evaluation of collaborative networks

* model-driven simulation engineering

* domain specific languages for the simulation of collaborative environments

* domain specific languages for collaborative M&S

* databases and repositories for M&S

* distributed virtual environments

* virtual research environment for M&S

* collaborative DEVS M&S

To stimulate creativity, however, the track maintains a wider scope and invites interested researchers to present contributions that offer original perspectives on collaboration and M&S.

On-Line Submissions and Publication

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 

CoMetS'12 intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative applications and trends in the track research area. 

This year, we will accept submissions in two forms:
(1) papers

(2) poster and industrial presentations

(1) Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere. Papers up to six pages (including figures, tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt Times/Roman font. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF) and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members. 

Accepted full papers will be included in the proceedings and published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (IEEE approval pending). Please note that at least one author for each accepted paper should register to attend WETICE 2012 (http://www.wetice.org) to have the paper published in the proceedings. 

(2) Posters should describe a practical, on-the-field, experience inany domain area using collaborative M&S. The poster submission requires the submission of an abstract for evaluation from theorganizers. Accepted abstract must be followed by the submission ofa poster which will be displayed at conference time.With the poster submission, a short (15 minutes) slot might be allocated for oral presentation illustrating the industrial case. The presentation may also include a live demo, but it should not include commercial details.
Interested authors and participants may contact the organizers for expression of interests and content appropriateness at any time. 

Papers and posters can be submitted in PDF format at the submission site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=comets2012), which is supported by the EasyChair conference management system. Please feel free to contact the track chairs (comets2012@easychair.org) if you experience problems with the EasyChair Web site.
