Increase of the computing power on handheld devices has made these devices attractive for many applications including simulation systems. There are Parallel Discrete-Event Simulation (PDES) frameworks exists but most of these are designed for cluster systems, not suitable for battery operated devices. In this paper, the well- known Rensselaer's Optimistic Simulation System (ROSS) framework has been instrumented for a detailed analysis in terms of CPU usage, memory consumption, energy and power requirements. This profiling helps in selecting the appropriate synchronisation algorithm for running the PDES frameworks on the mobile devices. Further, we propose a simulation framework (referred as SEECSSim1) that is specifically designed for handheld devices. It is the first one designed keeping in mind the characteristics and the constraints of mobile devices. SEECSSim includes the support for a number of state-of-the-art synchronisation protocols. The performance of SEECSSim has been studied using a PHOLD simulation model for different synchronisation algorithms.
