This report documents the program and the (preliminary) outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 22401 "Computer Science Methods for Effective and Sustainable Simulation Studies". The seminar has been dedicated to addressing central methodological challenges in conducting effective and sustainable simulation studies. Lightning talks provided the opportunity for participants to present their current research and ideas to advance methodological research in modeling and simulation. However, the lion’s share of the seminar was dedicated to working groups. One working group investigated how machine learning and modeling and simulation can be effectively integrated (Intelligent Modeling and Simulation Lifecycle). Another working group focused on methodological challenges to support policy via simulation (Policy by simulation: seeing is believing for interactive model co-creation and effective intervention). A third working group identified 4 challenges closely tied to the quest for sustainable simulation studies (Context, composition, automation, and communication - towards sustainable simulation studies) thereby, focusing on the role of model-based approaches and related methods.
