    AIM OF ESM'2002

    The ESM'2002 is the international conference concerned with state of the

    art technology in modelling and simulation. For several years, ESM has
    proven to be an outstanding forum for researchers involved in building
    innovative simulation systems, simulation and modelling tools and
    applications on both the research and industrial front. The SCS European

    Simulation Multiconference features an outstanding technical program
    ranging from introductory tutorials to software reviews to
    state-of-the-art
    research and practice. The conference includes exhibits, business
    meetings
    for professional societies, software user groups, and a social program.
    All submissions will be peer reviewed by three members of the
    International
    Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference
    Proceedings (both print and electronic format), that will be copyrighted

    and widely disseminated. All talks and tutorials must be accompanied by

    VENUE: DARMSTADT, GERMANY

    Once a residence of Hessian Landgrafen and Grand Dukes, Darmstadt
    developed
    into the capital city of the German state of Hessen. Following nearly
    complete
    destruction of the inner city in the Second World War, Darmstadt was to
    pass
    this title on to Wiesbaden. The city's identity had to be re-established
    from
    the ground up. Therefore emphasis was put on the so-called "smokeless
    industry",
    until the advent of computer technology.

    Darmstadt calls itself the home for a number of reputed international
    institutes
    such as the European space research organizations ESOC and EUMETSAT, the
    Heavy
    Ion Research Association (GSI), the GMD Research Centre Information
    Technology
    GmbH, the Research Centre Deutsche Telekom and the Fraunhofer Institute
    for
    Graphic Data Processing, to name only a few. Commercial firms of
    international
    format (Merck, Röhm, Schenck, Wella) on one hand and institutions of the
    arts
    (Industrial Design, New Music etc.) and sciences (several universities)
    are within
    close vicinity. Today, Darmstadt, located in the middle of the
    Starkenburg Region
    and at the outskirts of one of the most active economic areas, the
    ‘Rhein-Main’,
    is considered as one of the centres for information, communication and
    software
    technologies.
