This venue brings together the brightest researchers and practitioners in the fields of architecture, urban design, urban planning, building science, visualization and simulation. In past years, attendees have included researchers, engineers, architects, software developers, managers, educators, and business professionals. Over the years, SimAUD symposia have attracted exceptionally high-quality submissions (papers, datasets, and videos) on a diverse range of topics. We highly encourage you to take advantage of the free downloads of previous years' proceedings1.

We invite you to submit and present an original contribution for SimAUD 2016 in the London, UK. All submissions are peer-reviewed and considered for selection by the Committee. All accepted full papers (8 pages) will be published in the ACM Digital Library2. However, all the accepted submissions (both full and short papers) will be published in SimAUD’s proceedings. Please observe the submission types and deadlines on the Symposium website. SimAUD is run collaboratively with ACM/SIGSIM and is sponsored by The Society for Modeling and Simulation International.
