Simulation software has a prominent place in the set of tools and techniques used to study communications, networks, and systems.

The first aim of SIMUTools 2008 is to provide a meeting place for researchers and professionals who want to exchange and share their latest contributions to the design and improvement of techniques and tools in this rapidly evolving technology.

The second aim of the conference is to give a prominent place to inter-domain approaches and actively support and promote valuable contributions to the general field of Simulation Engineering.
