Conference Call for Papers

With the increase in data availability and recognition of uncertainty, MODSIM2021 will focus on how modelling and simulation can be used to translate data into action. Building on the traditional modelling and simulation papers in diverse areas, papers will explore the conference theme from a wide spectrum of disciplinary perspectives organized in different streams. Papers can approach the theme from different angles, including quantitative and qualitative modelling, and stakeholder engagement techniques. We encourage innovative approaches using novel modelling objectives. Special themes of the conference will include methods that take advantage of large datasets, scenario modelling of uncertain futures under climate change, resource constraints, and conflicting objectives. In 2021 the workshops for MODSIM will occur on late Thursday afternoon and Friday, we are inviting members to set up Special Interest Groups and put suggestions forward for a workshop in their area of interest.

Overview

Top Research Topics at Congress on Modelling and Simulation?

  • Hydrology (11.86%)
  • Environmental resource management (8.58%)
  • Climate change (4.64%)

Congress on Modelling and Simulation was organized to reinforce research efforts on Hydrology, Environmental resource management, Climate change, Climatology and Statistics. Congress on Modelling and Simulation concentrated on Hydrology research, specifically Surface runoff, Drainage basin, Water quality, Groundwater and Streamflow.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A multi-objective optimisation approach to water management. (100 citations)
  • Modelling seawater intrusion in the Burdekin Delta Irrigation Area, North Queensland, Australia (99 citations)
  • Computer software tool REALM for sustainable water allocation and management. (95 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Congress on Modelling and Simulation:

The most cited articles are organized to address concerns in the fields of Environmental resource management, Climate change, Hydrology, Artificial intelligence and Remote sensing. The most cited publications hold forums on Environmental resource management that merge themes from other disciplines such as Agriculture, Agricultural productivity, Decision support system, Adaptation (computer science) and Environmental economics. While work presented in the conference publications provide substantial information on Hydrology, it also covers topics in Sediment transport, Debris and Vegetation.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The discussions in the conference mainly cover the fields of Bayesian network, Environmental planning, Data science, Water resource management and Return flow. It focuses on Bayesian network but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Spatial contextual awareness, Community engagement, Relevance (information retrieval), Economic cost and Incentive. While Environmental planning is the focus of it, it also provided insights into the studies of Land development, Land use, Urban area and Urban density, Urban planning.

The conference focuses on Water resource management research which is adjacent to topics in Irrigation.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Use of SIRMOD as a quasi real time surface irrigation decision support system (2 citations)
  • Modeling water futures using food security and environmental sustainability approaches (1 citations)
  • Using management scenarios and a participatory approach to encourage model adoption in managing invasive species (0 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2020 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 100.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 0.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
