Please consider to contribute to and/or forward to the appropriate groups
the following opportunity to submit and publish original scientific


============== SIMUL 2009 | Call for Papers ===============


SIMUL 2009: The First International Conference on Advances in System

September 20-25, 2009 - Porto, Portugal

General page:

Call for Papers:

Submission deadline: April 20, 2009

Technically Co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society - Portugal Chapter

Sponsored by IARIA,

Submissions will be peer-reviewed, published by IEEE CPS, posted in IEEE
Digital Library, and indexed with the major indexes.

Extended versions of selected papers will be published in IARIA Journals:

Please note the Poster Forum and Work in Progress track.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of
concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running
experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are
invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review
in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to,
topic areas.

All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions, in terms
of Regular papers, Posters, Work in progress, Technical/marketing/business
presentations, Demos, Tutorials, and Panels.
