                16th Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation
   2 0 0 2
                       Washington, DC (USA)   12-15 May 2002
                  ACM Special Interest Group on Simulation (ACM SIGSIM)*
  IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Simulation (IEEE TC-SIM)*
                                  Society for Computer Simulation (SCS)*
                                                      * approval pending
  The PADS workshops provide a forum for presenting recent work that
  enhances the understanding of parallel and distributed simulation
  techniques (including optimistic, conservative, real-time and
  interactive synchronization, synthetic environments, virtual reality,
  DIS and HLA, and web-based simulation) and their use in real-world
  Papers on a diversity of topics are welcomed, particularly those
  that indicate and explore new directions; the scope of PADS 2002
  is by no means limited to the topics explicitly mentioned here,
  nor to those discussed at previous meetings.
  We invite RESEARCH CONTRIBUTIONS that present new formulations,
  theoretical models, architectures, algorithms, protocols, data
  structures or other implementation techniques; in short, anything that
  advances the state of the art or provides deeper insight into its
  fundamental nature.  Papers describing languages, systems, libraries,
  tools or techniques that facilitate the development, interoperation,
  re-use and validation of parallel simulation models are also sought,
  as are contributions towards predicting their performance.
  practitioners who have tried to apply these techniques in real-world
  applications.  Success stories that demonstrate the practical benefits
  that parallel, distributed, and web-based simulation can offer are
  obviously welcome, but we would also encourage those for whom these
  techniques did not prove successful to characterize those aspects of
  their problem that caused the most difficulty and thereby frame
  challenges for future research.  (Naturally, deeper analysis than
  just ``we tried this and it did/didn't work'' would be preferred!)
  Papers must be written in English and should not exceed 5000 words.
  Authors should identify clearly the contribution of their paper,
  explain its significance, and show how it relates to previous work.
  Papers must not have been previously published, nor may they be under
  consideration for publication elsewhere.
  All submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process
  --- the identities of authors and referees will not be revealed to
  each other.  To ensure blind reviewing, authors' names and
  affiliations should not appear in the submission, and bibliographic
  references should be modified so as not to reveal the identities of
  the authors.
  Authors are encouraged to submit their papers in electronic form.
  Further guidelines regarding submissions will be made available on
  the PADS 2002 web site in due course.
  Electronic submissions (PostScript only) be sent to the program
  co-chairs by 15 OCTOBER 2001.  

  Notification of acceptance will be made by
  20 DECEMBER 2001.  Camera ready final versions of accepted
  papers will be required approximately mid FEBRUARY 2002.
