Special Track on: Applications of Spatial Simulation of
Note: Submission Deadline Extended Until September 14, 2001
(ACM Symposium On Applied Computing 2002,
will be hosted by the
Universidad Carlos III De Madrid , Spain, from March 10 - 13, 2002.
Spatial Modeling of Discrete Entities
Many important phenomena result from
localized interactions of individual entities, including:
Modeling of these systems makes it possible to reduce the cost of
experiments or make them possible by conducting them on the computer.
The simulated systems have large numbers of entities, which motivates research
into design and parallel implementation issues. Often cellular automata or
particle-in-Cell approaches are used. This track provides a unique forum for
people with diverse interdisciplinary interests to interact and exchange ideas
in this area. Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the
- population dynamics,
- protein folding,
- structural geology,
- mobile computing and
- wireless networks.
- Application inspired algorithms
- Architectural evaluation for modeling
- Multifidelity modeling techniques
- Parallelization of spatial models
- Design, implementation and application of cellular automata
Guidelines for Submission
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be
considered. This includes three categories of submissions:
Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blindreview
process by at least three referees. Accepted papers in all categories will
be published in the ACM SAC'02 proceedings. Selected papers from the
track will be considered for a special issue of
published by IOS press
after the conference.
- original and unpublished research;
- reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences,
engineering, business,government, education and industry; and
- reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.
Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:
Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to:
William A. Maniatty
Dept. of Computer Science
University at Albany
1400 Washington Ave.
Albany, NY 12222
Alternatively, submit your paper electronically to
in uuencoded compressed postscript or pdf format;
this is strongly encouraged.
Fax submissions will not be accepted.
The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the
paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to
facilitate blind review. The body of the paper should not exceed 5,000
words (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced). A separate cover sheet
(in the case of electronic submission this should be sent separately from
the main paper) should show the title of the paper, the author(s)
name(s)and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail, telephone,
and FAX) to which correspondence should be sent. All submissions must be
received by September 14, 2001. Anyone wishing to review papers for this
special track should contact the Track ProgramChair(s) at the address shown
