Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications (SIMULTECH 2020), which is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with the ACM SIGSIM - Special Interest Group on Simulation and Modeling, the Institute of Engineering and Management (IEM), the European Council for Modeling and Simulation (ECMS), the Bulgarian Modeling and Simulation Association (BULSIM), the European Training and Simulation Association (ETSA), the Movimento Italiano Modellazione e Simulazione (MIMOS), the Federation of Asia Simulation Societies (ASIASIM) and the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB). This year SIMULTECH 2020 was, exceptionally, held as an online web-based event, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, from 8 - 10 July, 2020. This conference, which is the tenth in a row, has again met with much interest of the research community worldwide, which is the best proof that, first, the idea of the SIMULTECH conferences that has been conceived some years ago by a group of dedicated people with vision has been a proper choice. And, second, that the research and scholarly community working in the field of broadly perceived simulation has responded with great interest in spite of such an abundance of conferences on all possible topics that we presently face. This conference, SIMULTECH 2020, has again proven that the high expectations of the “founding fathers” of this conference series has been fulfilled, and the interest of the research and scholarly community has been not only maintained, but even amplified as, in addition to regular participants, many new people have submitted results of their new research. As in the previous editions, the participation of younger scientists and engineers is a very important factor and very highly encouraged. This year we have again succeeded to bring together top researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in methodologies and applications of modeling and simulation from all parts of the world. The main topics covered in the papers accepted after a careful review process for presentation the conference are: Methodologies and Technologies, and Applications and Tools of modeling and simulation. The papers accepted demonstrate new and innovative methodologies and solutions. They also highlight technical issues, challenges, and trends in this field. The high quality of the SIMULTECH 2020 program is enhanced by three distinguished keynote lectures, delivered by renowned international experts in their fields: Gerd Wagner (Brandenburg University of Technology at Cottbus, Germany), Lin Zhang (Beihang University, China) and Tillal Eldabi (University of Surrey, United Kingdom). SIMULTECH 2020 received 47 paper submissions, including special sessions, from 22 countries in all continents, of which 12 were orally presented (25% as full papers) and 15 as short papers (32% of submissions). Additionally, 4 papers were accepted for poster presentations. A double blind peer paper review was performed by the International Program Committee members, all of them recognized in at least one of the main conference topic areas, with an invaluable help by leading experts in the fields. Building an interesting and successful program for the conference requires the dedicated efforts of many people; we thank them all. Firstly, we must thank the authors, whose research and development efforts are recorded here. Secondly, we thank the members of the International Program Committee and additional reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. We also gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes, especially given the need to introduce online streaming, forum management, direct messaging facilitation and other web-based activities in order to make it possible for SIMULTECH 2020 authors to present their work and share ideas with colleagues in spite of the logistic difficulties caused by the current pandemic situation. Finally, we would like to thank the invited distinguished keynote speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and deliver their great talks. (More)
