—In this paper we present two implementations of
event-driven algorithms for simulating molecular dynamics
using the Omnet++ Simulation Framework and its Future
Event Set (FES) implementation. The first one uses a cell-linked
list algorithm. The second one extends the cell-linked list
algorithm incorporating a Verlet neighbor list algorithm. We
also present results and compare both algorithms over a set of
different scenarios. Finally, we discuss the advantages of using
the Omnet++ Simulation Framework and the implemented
algorithm for simulating cell-signaling communications.
