MMMse 2011: Intl Symp on Qualitative, Quantitative, and Hybrid Modeling Methodologies in Science and Engineering (Mar 2011, Orlando)

Dates: March 27th-30th, 2011 ~ Orlando, Florida, USA.
Deadline for submission: 6 January 2011.

In the context of The 2nd International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics: IMCIC 2011 (
Submissions for face-to-face and virtual presentations are accepted and in both cases the respective final papers will be included in the proceedings.

Important dates

Abstract/paper Submissions and invited sessions proposals: Jan 6th, 2011
Acceptance notification: Feb 7th, 2011
Final Papers Upload: Feb 22nd 2011

Best papers

A best paper will be selected for each session, and the best 20% of the papers presented at the symposium will also be published in the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics (All papers to be presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings)


Submissions will be reviewed in two-tier reviewing process: non-blind and double-blind reviewing.

Invited sessions organizers

Registration fees will be waived for EFFECTIVE invited session organizers.


The purpose of MMMse 2011’s Organizing Committee is to bring together modelers in science and engineering

  1. to present qualitative, quantitative, or hybrid models and/or methods in Science and Engineering (authors are encouraged to present models related to the topics of the collocated symposia and conferences), and/or to the topics of the collocated symposia and conferences), and/or
  2. to share their reflections regarding modeling practice and methodologies, and/or
  3. to participate in informal conversational sessions (beside the usual sessions where they would present their accepted papers) with the objective of identifying
    a. synergic relationships among the different methodologies and ways of modeling in Science and Engineering;
    b. common grounds of modeling in different disciplines, or with different methods, so the identified commonalities would support inter-disciplinary communicational processes among modelers, in the different areas and through different  methods, in Science and Engineering;
    c. similarities in different kinds of modeling which would support creative analogical thinking in this kind of thinking and practice.

Suggested Types of Submissions

  • Articles related to Models and/or Reflective Practice in Modeling in Science and/or Engineering
  • Articles related to specific models presented as case studies, where the model is presented with a reflection on modeling method followed and its potential applicability in other disciplines or areas.
  • Articles related to modeling methods and methodologies.
  • Articles related to Meta-Modeling: models of modeling processes, methods, and/or methodologies.
  • Articles related to differences among different kinds of modeling, their respective pros and cons, and/or the ways of synergistically combining or mixing them for specific purposes, as it is the case in some specific engineering problems.
  • Articles related to syncretistic, eclectic, or integrative methodologies in hybrid modeling.
