Special Issue on "Dependency Modelling in Complex System Design" - Call for Papers for Journal of Engineering Design

Interested authors are invited to submit high-quality contributions to the current special issue of the Journal of Engineering Design. The special issue focusses on how different forms of dependency modelling (such as DSM, MDM, or network analysis)  can support complex system design in theory and practice. Therefore, topics such as e.g. the following are of interest: Elicitation of models, specific dependency models for different applications, the analysis and simulation of models, the visualization and exploration of structural complexity. Of course, all additional problems and perspectives that relate to complexity and dependencies are invited as well. 
Please state your intent to submit ASAP to David Wynn (dcw24[at][dot]uk). Abstracts are due Sept 30, 2011, and full papers are required for review by Nov 25, 2011. The special issue is expected to be published in June 2012.
The full schedule as well as all necessary details can be found in the detailed call for papers.
