Edinburgh, UK

Call for Paper of DASD 2008

The 2008 Summer Simulation Multiconference (SummerSim'08) and the Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC'08) will feature the 6th conference on Design, Analysis, and Simulation of Distributed Systems (DASD 2008). The conference is devoted to distributed and complex systems. The goal of the conference is to encourage innovation in design, analysis and simulation of distributed systems. This includes new technologies as well as new methodologies, new concepts and experience reports. DASD 2008 will promote a high quality exchange of ideas and information between universities, industry, and national laboratories supporting the development in the design, analysis and simulation area of next generation distributed systems which can provide solutions to current scientific and technological challenges.
