The sixth OMNeT++ Community Summit will be held at the Hamburg University of Technology from Wednesday to Friday, September 04-06, 2019.
OMNeT++ is a public-source, component-based, modular and open-architecture simulation environment with strong GUI support and an embeddable simulation kernel. It is designed to simulate discrete event systems, with the simulation of communication networks as one of its primary application areas.
In continuation of the history of the International Workshop on OMNeT++ and four very successful editions of its reincarnation, the OMNeT++ Community Summit, we continue to hold a yearly open meeting for all OMNeT++ community members with less costs and more interaction possibilities. The Community Summit provides a forum for tutorials, discussion sessions and presentations on recent developments and novel ideas in the area of simulation and modeling, with a focus on the OMNeT++ simulation environment.
The first five Summits in Hamburg, Zurich, Brno, Bremen, and Pisa were huge successes with lively discussions, keynotes, tutorials, panels, presentations, and demonstrations of ongoing and finalized research covering many aspects of OMNeT++-related research. The 2019 event continues to expand the idea of a yearly community summit by explicitly addressing the interaction through tutorials, panels and coding sessions. Additionally, there will be the possibility to submit scientific contributions which will be reviewed and (depending on their acceptance) be published.
The OMNeT++ summit unites users, developers, and researchers to discuss applications, developments, and ideas on the topics of integrating simulation models, coupling different simulation tools and providing more accurate and more efficient modeling approaches and simulation models.
We invite researchers and users alike to submit one or more of the following contribution types:
All submissions should be of interest to the OMNeT++ community. We welcome case studies that employ OMNeT++ in the evaluation of systems as well as contributions addressing general questions of OMNeT++-based simulations. For model-centric submissions, we ask the author(s) to publicize source code at the time of submission.
All submissions will be checked by the organizers and scientific submissions will be reviewed by the technical program committee. Proposals for individual contributions will be invited depending on the submission type and based on the expected interest for the OMNeT++ community. We provide poster slots for all interested participants.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
After the great success of the first Hackathon in Pisa last year, a similiar Hackathon is again going to be organized together with this year's OMNeT++ Community Summit.
The hackathon gives developers of simulation models and simulation frameworks the chance to consult and team-up with the OMNeT++ core developer team and fellow framework developers, in order to improve the quality and interoperability of simulation models and frameworks and to work on topics proposed by the developers themselves. Participants and topics will be selected based on prior written project proposals.
Exemplary topics for hackathon projects:
Authors are encouraged to submit their tutorial / demo / hackathon/ discussion proposals as well as their scientific contributions describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference or venue, addressing state-of-the-art research and topics as listed. If a submission extends work described in a previous publication of their own, we strongly encourage authors to include a citation to that publication.
Full papers and short abstracts should be prepared with the Easychair EPiC series template, available online. Please prepare your submission with the letter page format and the [EPiC] mode enabled. You can indicate your submission type during the submission process in Easychair (e.g., scientific contribution, tutorial, demonstration).
Scientific contributions accepted by the TPC and presented at the summit will be published in the indexed open access journal "EPiC Series in Computing" (pending agreement). Copyrights for all contributions (including the EPiC submitted articles) will remain solely with the authors. This allows for a publication of revised versions at other venues.
The 6th OMNeT++ Community Summit will take place at the Hamburg University of Technology in Germany.

With more than 1.8 million people, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. The port of Hamburg is the third largest port in Europe. Hamburg's many streams, rivers and canals are crossed by over 2300 bridges, more than London, Amsterdam and Venice put together. The city is a major tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; it was ranked 10th in the world for liveability in 2017. The average temperature in September is around 18°C.
