Thematic Series on Modeling Complexity in Complex Adaptive Communication Networks and Environments

Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling welcomes submissions to the thematic series on Modeling Complexity in  Complex Adaptive Communication Networks and Environments.

Modern Communication Networks are very complex in nature. Often times, they are made up of several hierarchical complex systems. While traditional techniques focus on developing simulation models of smaller systems as proof-of-concept, the focus of this thematic series is to capture latest research in the domain of modeling and simulation of complex communication networks such as Body Area Networks, Internet of Things, Cloud computing, Vehicular Networks etc.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Modeling and Simulation techniques for Communication networks
  • Agent-based models
  • Complex network (graph-based) models
  • Multi-scale models, mathematical models
  • Well-defined and detailed modelling and simulation case studies
  • Techniques for verification and validation of large-scale models   

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for  Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the  Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on Modeling Complexity in  Complex Adaptive Communication Networks and Environments. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.

Deadline for submissions: 31/07/2017
