The multidisciplinary MODSIM International Congress on Modelling and Simulation is held every two years, and MODSIM 2013 will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre (South Australia) on 1–6 December.
This specific session within MODSIM will discuss Homeland Security & Emergency Management applications of modelling and simulation. It results from a splitting of the successful Defence and Homeland Security session into Defence and non-Defence areas. This new session seeks papers applying modelling and simulation to all areas of Homeland Security, including (but not limited to) agent-based modelling, simulation of social systems, applications to critical infrastructure protection & emergency management, and modelling of crime, fraud, terrorism, pandemics & natural disasters.
Anthony Dekker will be the session chair. See below for some relevant papers at past MODSIM conferences. As with all MODSIM papers from 2005 onwards, these papers will be peer-reviewed and indexed in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science.
MODSIM papers are restricted to 7 pages, in a very specific MODSIM format that includes a one-page extended abstract (executive summary). See the detailed instructions to authors. This year, there is also the option of submitting only the one-page extended abstract, which will still be peer-reviewed. MODSIM presentations are generally restricted to 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions.
Some relevant papers at previous MODSIM conferences include the following, although we are hoping for a significant broadening of scope beyond these:
