Simulation News Europe - December Issue

Simulation News Europe - December Issue

"The European Multidisciplinary Society for Modelling and Simulation Technology"

Dear Colleague,
It seems months just fly past between the issues of our electronic newsletter.
On the positive side, however, as it has been a long time since July, we
can add in a lot of new information you can have a look at.
Enjoy the issue.

This issue has the following topics:
1) EUROSIS Members Update
2) Call for IPC Members
3) EUROSIS Conferences Update
4) Online Pictures Update
5) New EUROSIS Publications
6) Journals and Books update

7) FP7 Projects

1) EUROSIS Memberships
We have the pleasure to announce that EUROSIS now has its second full Academic Member (see below)

The Higher Technological Institute Tenth of Ramadan City, Egypt.

And two new full time members:
1) Joaquim Felipe, INSTICC, Setubal, Portugal
2) Vincent Leemans, Ulg, Gembloux, Belgium

2) IPC Members

Over the last couple of years we have attained a median number of 3-5 reviews per submission for our conferences. In order to increase the quality of feedback and of the papers submitted for EUROSIS events, we are aiming to bring the number of reviews to 4-6. What we have accomplished so far has translated itself into attracting new journals
and books linked to our activities, as you can see under heading 6. So if you are interested in taking up an ipc position, send an email to

6) Journals and Books updates

From 2011 onwards selected conference papers will be published in the Elsevier Journal of Computational Science. If you are interested in being part of the Editorial Board you can send me an email. BEWARE preference is given to paid up EUROSIS members and present conference IPC members.

EUROSIS has been requested by Cambridge Scholars Publishing to produce a number of specialized books on the use of simulation and modelling. A first book is in the works on Transport and Traffic Simulation edited by Gerrit Janssens, Kenneth Soerensen and Cathy Macharis. More info to follow on this book and how you can get involved soon.

If you are interested in proposing a book or being part of the Book Editorial Board you can send me an email. BEWARE preference is given to paid up EUROSIS members and present conference IPC members.
