SW 2012 : 6th Simulation Workshop
Call For Papers
The biennial OR Society Simulation Workshop brings together practitioners and academics working in the field of discrete-event simulation and related fields. It provides an opportunity to exchange ideas on the current and future state-of-the-art in simulation and modelling. The programme consists of a key note presentation, panel discussion and parallel streams. Breaks between sessions and the conference dinner provide an excellent opportunity for networking. The exhibition area includes some of the latest developments in simulation software tools.
The workshop will include plenary sessions, special focus streams, simulation practice sessions and PhD posters. Contributions to the technical programme are sought in the following areas, although papers in any area of discrete-event simulation will be considered.
Simulation Modelling Methodology
Component based simulation
Web based simulation
Simulation and the grid
Simulation and artificial intelligence
Human performance modelling
Verification and Validation
Simulation Analysis Methodology
Design and analysis of simulation experiments
Simulation in Practice
Simulation in manufacturing
Simulation in services
Simulation in defence
Simulation in healthcare
Simulation in semiconductor industry
All submissions will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be presented at the conference. Presentations will be given 30 minutes including time for questions and answers.
The Simulation Practice Stream provides an opportunity to submit a shorter paper (3 to 5 pages). These papers should either describe a novel application of simulation or provide some insight into how the use of simulation might be improved. Contributions from simulation practitioners are particularly encouraged.
PhD Posters (1-3 pages) are included in the conference proceedings and displayed during the conference.
