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 because of the more 
complex models and of 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 workshop seeks innovative contributions that 
deal with the application of M&S practices to the design of 
collaborative environments. These environments 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 hi-level topics includes: 

* databases of simulation models
* collaborative environments for M&S 
* agent-based M&S 
* collaborative distributed simulation 
* 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 evaluation of collaborative 
  networks 
* model-driven simulation engineering 
* domain specific languages for the simulation of collaborative 
  environments 
* domain specific languages for collaborative M&S 

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

On-Line Submissions and Publication 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 

CoMetS'10 intends to bring together researchers and practitioners 
to discuss key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative 
applications and trends in the workshop 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, which is single spaced, two columns, 10 pt 
Times/Roman font. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF) 
and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee 
members. 

Full papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the 
proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (IEEE 
approval pending). Note that at least one author from each 
accepted paper should register to attend WETICE 2010 to get the 
paper published in the proceedings. 

Authors may contact the organizers for expression of interests 
and content appropriateness at any time. Papers can be submitted 
in PDF format at the submission site 
supported by the EasyChair conference management system. Please 
contact the workshop chairs (comets10@easychair.org) if you 
experience problems with the EasyChair Web site.
