Simulation News Europe - June Issue

"The European Multidisciplinary Society for Modelling and Simulation Technology"

Dear Colleague,
Well here it is again, our Newsletter updating the EUROSIS activities of
the past months and the coming months. As usual its already far past
my envisaged publication deadline, but still am glad I made it before the
Enjoy the issue.

This issue has the following topics:
1) EUROSIS Members Update
2) Call for IPC Members
3) EUROSIS Conferences Update
4) Online Pictures Update
5) New EUROSIS Publications
6) Journals and Books update

7) Project Proposal

1) EUROSIS Memberships
We have the pleasure to announce that EUROSIS now has its third full Academic Member, namely the British Institute of Technology and E-Commerce

And two new full time members:
1) Barbaros Bostan, Yeditepe University, Istanbul, Turkey
2) Helena Barbas, CENTRA-Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Caparica, Portugal

2) IPC Members

Over the last couple of years we have attained a median number of 3-5 reviews per submission for our conferences. In order to increase the quality of feedback and of the papers submitted for EUROSIS events, we are aiming to bring the number of reviews to 4-6. What we have accomplished so far has translated itself into attracting new journals
and books linked to our activities, as you can see under heading 6. So if you are interested in taking up an ipc position, send an email to

6) Projects

A Belgian clothing company we are working with is looking for industrial
