Dear Colleague,

This is the first announcement and call for
tutorials and workshop proposals for ESM'2012,
which will be held at the FOM- University of
Applied Sciences, Essen, Germany, from October
22-24, 2012.

If you wish to submit a tutorial or workshop
please see below.

Specific Information posted so far:
Prof. Uwe Clausen, TU Dortmund, Dortmund, Germany
Dr. Roberto Montemanni, (IDSIA), Manno, Switzerland
for further information see:


Tutorials can be proposed in the following
three categories:
* T1- Introductory Tutorials
* T2- State of the Art Tutorials
* T3- Software and Modelware Tutorials

Tutorial proposals should be emailed to Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org, by indicating the type of tutorial you would like to suggest. (T1, T2 or T3) before March 30, 2012. A confirmation email will be sent to verify that the proposal was received.

Examples of topic areas for tutorial proposals should mirror the topics in the list of conference themes and workshops.

Proposals must be submitted electronically via e-mail, as plain text or in PDF. The tutorial submission should be contained within five pages. Various parts of the proposal for accepted tutorials may be edited for incorporation in the Advance Program.

Financial Terms

An accepted conference tutor receives a free conference registration plus a free publication of his tutorial paper. Tutorial presenters will receive also an honorarium depending on the number of attendees registering specifically for the tutorial outside the conference registrants. The precise amount of the honorarium will be determined immediately after the early registration deadline.

Tutorials that have less than 8 early registrants will face the risk of cancellation.

Tutorial Selection Committee

The proposals received will be reviewed by the Selection Committee to ensure a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference. The goal of the Selection Committee is to provide a diverse set of tutorials that attract a large interest among the broad segments within the diverse simulation community.


The conference organization is open to suggestions on possible workshops featuring software packages, new hardware or methods used in simulation and modelling.

Workshop organizers are mentioned as thus in the conference proceedings as well as in the preliminary and final programmes. The workshop is also clearly marked in the aforementioned.

If you want to propose a workshop please contact;philippe.geril@eurosis.org before MARCH 25.
