    Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is increasingly becoming a central
    activity in the design of new systems and in the analysis of
    existing systems because it enables designers and researchers to
    investigate systems behavior through virtual representations. For
    this reason, M&S is gaining a primary role in many industrial and
    research fields, such as space, critical infrastructures,
    manufacturing, emergency management, biomedical systems and
    sustainable future. However, as the complexity of the
    investigated systems increases and the types of investigations
    widens, the cost of M&S activities increases for the more
    complex models and for the communications among a wider number and
    variety of M&S stakeholders (e.g., sub-domain experts, simulator
    users, simulator engineers, and final system users). To address
    the increasing costs of M&S activities, collaborative
    technologies must be introduced to support these activities by
    fostering the sharing and reuse of models, by facilitating the
    communications among M&S stakeholders, and more generally by
    integrating processes, tools and platforms.

    Aside from seeking applications of collaborative technologies to
    M&S activities, the track seeks innovative contributions that
    deal with the application of M&S practices in the field of
    collaborative engineering platforms. These platforms are continuously
    becoming more complex, and therefore their design requires
    systematic approaches to meet the required quality of
    collaboration. This is important for two reasons: to reduce
    rework activities on the actual collaborative environment, and to
    maximize the productivity and the quality of the process the
    collaborative environment supports. M&S offers the methodologies
    and tools for such investigations and therefore it can be used to
    improve the quality of collaborative environments.

    A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest includes:

    * collaborative requirements modeling
    * collaborative environments for M&S
    * collaborative Systems of Systems M&S
    * business process modeling for collaborative environments
    * agent-based M&S
    * collaborative distributed simulation
    * collaborative component-based M&S
    * net-centric M&S
    * web-based M&S
    * model sharing and reuse
    * model building and evaluation
    * modeling and simulation of business processes
    * modeling for collaboration
    * simulation-based performance analysis of collaborative engineering
    platforms
    * model-driven approaches for collaborative engineering
    * domain specific languages for collaborative M&S
    * databases and repositories for M&S
    * distributed virtual environments
    * virtual research environment for M&S
    * collaborative DEVS M&S
    * multi-method M&S

    To stimulate creativity, however, the track maintains a wider
    scope and invites interested researchers to present contributions
    that offer original perspectives on collaboration and M&S.

    CoMetS'16 intends to bring together researchers and practitioners
    to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative
    applications and trends in the track research area.

    Papers should contain original contributions not published or
    submitted elsewhere. Papers up to six pages (including figures,
    tables and references) can be submitted. Papers should follow the
    IEEE format (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/ publishing/templates.html). All submissions should be submitted
    in PDF format and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program
    committee members.

    Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings and
    published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
    Please note that at least one author for each accepted paper should
    register to attend WETICE 2016 (http://www.wetice.org) to have the
    paper published in the proceedings.

    Interested authors and participants may contact the organizers for
    expression of interests and content appropriateness at any time.

    Papers and posters can be submitted in PDF format at the conference
    submission site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?
