in printed form or via E-mail , before JANUARY 30, 1996

Please, mention in your abstract the novel elements in your research and
its contribution to the field of simulation.

Only original papers, written in English, which have not previously been
published elsewhere will be accepted. In case you want to organize a panel
discussion, please contact the general program chairman.

Authors are expected to register early (at a reduced fee) and to attend the
conference at their own expense to present the accepted papers.
Without early registration and payment, the paper will not be published in
the Conference Proceedings.

Each abstract will be reviewed by at least three members of the
International Program Committee. The notification of acceptance or
rejection will be sent by FEBRUARY 20, 1996.

Along with the notification of acceptance, an author kit with complete
instructions for preparing a camera-ready copy for the Proceedings will
be sent to authors of accepted abstracts or drafts . The camera-ready
copy of the papers (or electronic versions of the paper in Word 6.0
(for Windows 3.1), WP 5 or LateX ) must be in by APRIL 20, 1996. In order
to guarantee a high-quality conference, the full papers will be reviewed
as well, to check whether the suggestions of the program committee have
been incorporated. Nominees for the best paper award will then be selected
as well.

Language
The official conference language and the language of the accepted papers
will be English.

If you plan to give state-of-the-art reviews or to organize panel
discussions, then please contact the European Simulation Office.

Best Paper Award
The 1996 European Simulation Multiconference will award the best papers,
one in each track. From these papers the best overall paper will be chosen.
We will try to have the awarded paper published in an International Journal,
if necessary after incorporating modifications to the paper.

Submission Deadline: January 30, 1996
Acceptance Notification: February 20, 1996
Camera-Ready Copies: April 20, 1996

Conference Information

The ESM series (organized by SCS, the Society for Computer Simulation
International) is now in its 10th year. SCS is an International
non-profit organization founded in 1952. On a yearly basis SCSI organizes
six Simulation Conferences worldwide, cooperates in two others, and
publishes the monthly magazine "Simulation", a quarterly "Transactions",
and books. For more information, please tick the appropriate box on the
reply-card

Vendor sessions, Demonstrations and Video presentations

For demonstrations or video sessions, please contact SCS International at
the European Office. Special sessions will be set up for vendor
presentations in coordination with the scientific program.

Exhibits
An exhibition will be held in the central area connecting the lecture
halls where all participants meet for coffee and tea. There will be a
special exhibition section for universities and non-profit organisations,
and a special section for publishers and commercial stands. If you would
like to participate in the exhibition, please contact the SCS European
Office.

Venue
Budapest is not only the capital of Hungary, but also its geographic,
scientific and cultural centre. As a result of its location on both banks
of the river Danube, Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities of
Europe. The city grew out of the union of both cities on either
bank of the Danube, the hillstrewn Buda on the right bank and the
lowlying Pest on the left bank. As a result of its speckled history from
Roman times, through the Middle Ages and Renaissance to the present day,
Budapest blends a myriad of building styles into one harmonious entity.
One of its peculiarities lies in the fact that there are some 180 hot
springs feeding some 10 thermal baths.
