The TMS/DEVS 2011, part of the SpringSim 2011, took place in Boston from the 4th to the 7th of April 2011.

General notes

We would like to thank all contributors to the TMS/DEVS 2011. You did a great job on supporting the conference and we finally had a great conference in Boston.

At first we have to say thank you to all those who submitted a paper to the conference. We received a sufficient number of good and high quality submissions covering many of the topics of the conference and we are especially happy about the increasing share of papers on the broader theory of modeling and simulation.

At second we have to say thank you to all those who did the reviews: without your support such a conference could never be successful.

Last but not least we would like to express our gratitude to all those of you supporting the conference on site (registration desk, session chairs, presenters, audience, etc …) as well to those who did a great job on organizing rooms, proceedings, and the rest.
