Latest information

Dear authors, reviewers and chairs of ECMS 2020, 

Unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we are unable

to hold the ECMS 2020 conference at TH Wildau, as planned. 

The local organizers at TH Wildau, Germany, together with the ECMS Board

are offering the following alternative for all accepted papers: 

The reviewing process of all submitted papers will continue. Right now, we are planning to inform all authors about acceptance or rejection between April 6 to 10, 2020.

We are offering to publish our 2020 indexed proceedings (printed for libraries and online with DOI, Scopus, INSPEC, DBLP and Thomas Reuters), in our annual series, for a reduced fee of 250€ for each paper accepted for publication. Deadline for the final submission together with received payment will be

May 2nd, 2020.  

The ECMS organizing team is thanking you for your understanding and we are working already

on the next ECMS conference.


In case you might have any questions, please feel free to get back to us.
All the best and many greetings

Martina-Maria Seidel
on behalf of the whole ECMS 2020 organizing team


The Venue

Join the leading scientific forum for European simulationists

The 34th International ECMS Conference on Modelling and Simulation is the annual conference of the European Council for Modelling and Simulation, an independent forum of international academics and practitioners dedicated to research, development, and applications of modelling and simulation.

ECMS 2020 is hosted by the
Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau, Germany June 9-12, 2020

Call for contributions

ECMS 2020 is the 34th international conference dedicated to help define the state of the art in different fields involved in creating, defining and building innovative simulation systems, simulation and modelling tools and techniques, and novel applications for modelling and simulation. Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality papers representing original results in all related areas of modelling and simulation. Published papers will be indexed by DBLP, ISI, INSPEC, SCOPUS and DOI (ISSN 2522-2422 (Online), ISSN 2522-2414 (Print), ISSN 2522-2430 (CD-ROM)). An author of each accepted paper must register and present the paper at the conference. Detailed instructions for submission are available on the conference website:

ECMS 2020 is asking for papers on the following topics:

  • Open and Collaborative Models and Simulation Methods
  • Industrial Process Modelling and Simulation
  • Finance and Economics and Social Science
  • Simulation and Optimization
  • Finite - Discrete - Element Simulation
  • Machine Learning for Big Data
  • Simulation of Intelligent Systems
  • Modelling, Simulation and Control of Technological Processes
  • Modelling and Simulation of Data Intensive Systems
  • Probability and Statistical Methods for Modelling and Simulation

Conference Aims & Conference VenueOpen areaClose area

The human capacity to abstract complex systems and phenomena into simplified models has played a critical role in the rapid evolution of our modern industrial processes and scientific research. As a science and an art, Modelling and Simulation have been one of the core enablers of this remarkable human trace, and have become a topic of great importance for researchers and practitioners. The increasing availability of massive computational resources and interconnectivity has helped fuel tremendous advances in the field, collapsing previous barriers and redefining new horizons for its capabilities and applications.
