  1. Modeling and simulation case studies
    • Discrete Event Simulation
    • Network Simulation
    • Agent-based Modeling (ODD, CABC, DREAM, VOMAS, EABM etc.)
    • Complex Network Modeling
    • Multiscale modeling
    • Formal Specification-based Simulation Models
    • Specification of Simulation and Modeling
    • Verification & Validation of Models
    • Other paradigms
  2. Modeling and Simulation applications
    • Big Data
    • Computational Science
    • Nano-communication networks
    • Online/Offline social networks
    • Social Network Analysis
    • Molecular Modeling
    • Biochemistry
