    CONFERENCE TOPICS

    The 13th annual European Simulation Symposium concentrates on the
    industrial
    application of simulators and computer technology. Increasingly the
    industrial
    application of simulation is being used by companies, to analyze their
    relative
    strengths and weaknesses and to focus on specific processes open for
    improvement. With the integration of artificial intelligence and other
    modeling
    techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision
    support
    tool, as well. The exchange of techniques and ideas among universities
    and
    industry, which support the integration of simulation in the everyday
    workplace,
    is the basic premise at the heart of ESS'2001. ESS'2001 consists of four
    major
    parts. A part concerns itself with simulation applications, another with

    simulation methodology, then there are the workshops, the exhibition and
    last
    but not least the poster sessions for students..

    The application section covers: Automation, CAD/CAM/CAE, Defense
    Electronics,
    Design Automation, Simulation in industrial Design, Industrial
    Engineering,
    Industrial and Process Simulation, Manufacturing, OR, Business and
    Services
    Simulations, Emergency Management, Environmental Sciences and Mission
    Earth,
    Intelligence and Security, Logistics and Transport, Power Plants,
    Multibody
    Systems, Aerospace, Training and Educational Support., Distributed
    Interactive
    Simulation

    The methodologies section covers: Simulation Methodologies, Languages
    and Tools,
    Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Based Simulation, Virtual Reality,
    Synthetic
    Environments, Petri Nets and Performance Analysis.

    There will be four theme specific workshops at the conference: the DEVS
    workshop, the Ecology Workshop, the Bond Graph Workshop and the
    Artificial
    Neural Networks Workshop. The DEVS Workshop will cover: Extensions to
    the DEVS
    formalism, DEVS and Distributed DEVS frameworks, DEVS-based next
    generation
    VHDL, DEVS standardization, DEVS applications

     The Ecology Workshop's main goal is to enhance the transdisciplinarity
    and
    to facilitate contacts and dialogs between computer scientists and
    specialists
    of Environmental Sciences. Since 10 years the modelling process took
    benefits
    from recent (and less recent) techniques of computer science :
    Object-Oriented
    Languages, Discrete Event Simulation, Concepts
     of Agent and Actor, Fuzzy Logic, UML, model - GIS interface, Web-based
    simulation... Many, many simulators were built in the wide spectra of
    environment managing, predictive models of forest growth, fishing,
    climate and
    other biological processes.
    Papers dealing with ecological modelling (in a large sense) are welcome.
    As for
    instance few topics are indicated:
    Applications: Environment managing, Waste managing, Ecosystem dynamics
    (terrestrial and oceanographic ecology) Population dynamics (diseases &
    epidemics, changes in biodiversity, genome, predator-prey relationships,

    fishing...), Population behaviour, Individual behaviour, involving
    methodologies such as : Artificial Intelligence, Distributed Interactive

    Simulation High-Performance Computing Languages , Modelling Techniques,
    Simulation Methodologies & Tools , Synthetic Environment , Virtual
    Reality ,
    Petri nets DEVS and Bond Graphs

     The Bond Graph Workshop will bring experts together for the purpose of
    discussing new concepts, methods, techniques tools and applications of
    this
    energy-based modeling methodology. Papers dealing with all aspects of
    the use of
    bond graphs in system design, analysis, and control are welcome. The
    workshop
    will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent
    research and
    applications of the Bond Graph methodology.
    Research papers are welcome in the following categories of presentation:

    Tutorials, Panel Discussions, Software and Tools,
    Bond Graph Theory, Advanced Bond Graph Methodology, Bond Graphs and
    Block
    Diagrams, Computer Graphics and Bond Graph Modeling, Qualitative
    Modeling,
    Mechatronics Systems, Mechanical Systems and Robotics, Electrical and
    Power
    Systems, Control Systems, Thermal and Chemical Systems, Biomechanics and

    Prosthetics, Ecological Systems, Biological and Medical Systems, Social
    and
    Economic Systems, Industrial Applications, Large, Non-linear Models

     The Artificial Neural Networks Workshop will provide a forum for the
    presentation and discussion of recent research and applications of
    artificial
    neural networks such as in machine learning, data analysis and
    simulation. The
    aim of the workshop is to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary
    communication amongst university and industry professionals in applying
    ANN.
    Papers dealing with ANN applications (in a large sense) are welcome. As
    for
    instance few topics are indicated: Classification, Data analysis, Fault
    tolerance, Forecasting, Knowledge acquisition, Economics and Finance,
    Planning,
    Pre-treatment of the data, Process control, Robotics, Speech and image
    recognition, Web intelligence, involving methodologies such as : Hybrid
    systems
    (GA, fuzzy, symbolic representation, Methods or tools for evaluating ANN

    performance, Reinforcement Learning, Simulation tools (research,
    education,
    development), ...

     Multiagent Modelling and Simulation in Industry and the Environment.
    See the website for a more extensive overview)

    The exhibition is aimed at companies designing simulation products. The
    program
    provides specific time blocks designed to enhance vendor contact with
    attendees.

    The poster sessions are devoted to Ph.D. Students who can come to
    present and
    discuss their thesis work with experts in the area of simulation.
    Ph.D.Students
    should submit overview articles, describing the area of their research

    CONFERENCE SITE

    The conference will be held in the beautiful French city of Marseilles,
    used as
    many a backdrop of many a great movie. The city lies on the crossroads
    of the
    orient and the easy-going life of the south of France. Famous for its
    Old
    Fishing Port and fine food. The fishing port made famous by the many
    works of
    Marcel Pagnol. Next to the Old port, the city boasts a very well
    preserved inner
    city dating back to the 17th century. The townhall for example dates
    back from
    that era and as Marseille used to be, next to Toulon an important
    strategic town
    for the French Navy, many remnants of that illustrious past still
    abound.. One
    of the main attractions of the city for naval buffs is the naval museum,
    which
    houses some of the finest naval exhibits in the world.
    So, make sure Marseilles is the destination for you this Autumn and be
    at
    ESS'2001., thePlace to meet simulation experts in your field of
    expertise.

    The conference will be held at The Mercure Marseille Euro-Centre. Right
    next to
    the CMCI and close to the Canebiere and the chamber of commerce, part of
    the
    Bourse mall, the hotel overflows the famous "Vieux-Port"and the "Jardin
    des
    Vestiges. The hotel offers 199 guest rooms. Also available: bar,
    restaurant, 12
    meeting rooms for 300 people. Pets are allowed, car park available.
