AIM OF ISC'2009
The aim of the 7th annual Industrial Simulation Conference (ISC'2009, is to give a complete overview of this year's industrial simulation related research and to provide an annual status report on present day industrial simulation research within the European Community and the rest of the world in line with European industrial research projects.
With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modelling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support tool in industry. The exchange of techniques and ideas among universities and industry, which support the integration of simulation in the everyday workplace, is the basic premise at the heart of ISC'2009 conference.
The ISC'2009 conference consists of four major parts; the first part concerns itself with discrete event simulation methodology, the second and biggest part with industrial simulation applications, a third one with industrial themed workshops, and last but not least the fourth part, namely the poster sessions for students. The whole is then illustrated by an exhibition.
This year's conference will feature a number of new themes, which have been proposed by Loughborough University.

AMBIENT INTELLIGENCE AND SIMULATION
Ambient Intelligence is an emerging research area that has received much attention in recent years, concerned with the implications of embedding computing devices into the environment, and how human and artificial agents can interact in such technological contexts. The infrastructure for ambient intelligence is coming on line, Computational resources are becoming cheaper, while ubiquitous network access has started to appear.
Different devices equipped with simple intelligence and the abilities to sense, communicate and act, will be unremarkable features of our world. Therefore, one takes the view that ambient intelligence is imminent and inevitable and it may be of great interest in simulation scenarios.

SIMULATION IN ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING
Semiconductor Manufacturing Simulation
Recently, the electronics industry has become the largest industry in the world. One important area of this industry is the manufacturing of integrated circuits (IC) on silicon wafers. Semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities (wafer fabs) are complex manufacturing systems that contain hundreds of machines and thousands of lots. Currently, it seems that the improvement of operational processes creates the best opportunity to realize necessary cost reductions. Therefore, the development of efficient planning and control strategies is highly desirable in the semiconductor domain.
In order to create, implement and test the required novel strategies, it is necessary to take new opportunities of information technology into account. Modelling and Simulation are widely accepted tools in planning and production control in wafer fabs because they are able to deal with the huge complexity of modern wafer fabs.
The aim of the session consists in collecting papers from both industry and academia that deal with interesting applications and new methodologies in modelling and simulation of manufacturing systems in the electronics industry.

VERIFICATION, VALIDATION AND ACCREDITATION
The term validation is applied to those processes, which seek to determine whether or not a simulation is correct with respect to the "real" system. More prosaically, validation is concerned with the question "Are we building the right system?". Verification, on the other hand, seeks to answer the question "Are we building the system right?"
This track is interested in simulation validation methodologies: methodologies to support the process of constructing a simulation model and then aiding the validation of this model to the "real" system. These system models can be discrete, continuous or hybrid. Application areas range from information systems to engineering and scientific systems. Relevant parameters include performance, properties given by formal or informal requirements, exception handling etc. In this conference track, contributions from all areas of simulation and validation are solicited. Topics include, but are not limited to those given below.
VV&A methodology (effective VV&A, VV&A planning, confidence levels, risk estimation, organisation, documentation, standards, cost estimation, technique application, result presentation, subject matter expert (SME) selection, formal model specification, fidelity, automation potential), VV&A technology (documentation, CASE-tools, cross checking, requirements specification, knowledge based systems, configuration management, tool overview, simulation environments)
SIMULATION AND TRAINING
Highly skilled staff is an essential prerequisite for the safe and effective operation of industrial production systems. Simulation-based training plays an increasingly important role in qualification of plant personnel. In specific sectors such as aerospace or power stations, training simulators have already been successfully employed for many years. Latest developments in industrial information technology as well as the introduction of virtual product and process engineering provide a new technological basis for the cost-effective implementation of training simulators. Therefore, in near future the general spread of these technology in a variety of industrial sectors and applications is expected. Today ´s best practice, latest developments, and future concepts of simulation-based training in industry will be presented.
