10th Simulation Workshop (SW20)

Presented By The Operational Research Society

About this event

Join us to celebrate the 10th ‘anniversary’ of the Simulation Workshop

This conference always boasts an excellent mix of delegates from the fields of simulation practice and research. The conference covers application and theoretical developments across all simulation methods, for example agent-based simulation, discrete-event simulation, system dynamics and monte-carlo simulation. 

Feedback from delegates asks for more technical talks about simulation methodology and so following the success of the simulation tutorial sessions, we are pleased to announce that the conference will continue to feature an extra half day dedicated to tutorial sessions for beginners and experienced simulation modellers alike.

 Learn from and meet the top names in Simulation

The Simulation Workshop has a proud track record of attracting top names in computer simulation as keynote speakers such as Barry Nelson, Shane Henderson, Charles Macal, Paul Fishwick, Alexander Verbraeck, Sally Brailsford and at SW18 two major keynote talks from John W. Fowler, Arizona State University and Russell C.H. Cheng, University of Southampton. SW20 will be just as exciting and not only provides a platform for learning from some top names, but also the opportunity to meet the speakers and get feedback on your work.SW Mingling.jpg

High quality talks – guaranteed

The conference typically features 30 high quality practitioner and researcher papers detailing applied case studies and theoretical developments in the field of computer simulation. We ask delegates to submit either a 5-10 page full paper or a 2-4 short paper. Short papers are a new feature introduced at SW20 particularly suitable for delegates wishing to present industrial case studies or work in progress, narrower in scope compared to a full paper. Submitted papers are peer reviewed and published in our proceedings. Not only does this mean you get to take away 30 high quality papers in the proceedings, but it guarantees high quality talks!

Practitioner and researcher poster competition

If you don’t feel your work warrants a full oral presentation then the practitioner and researcher poster option is for you. Poster delegates produce an A0 or A1 poster showcasing their applied or theoretical simulation work and are asked to give a 2 minute ‘elevator pitch’ presentation to argue why their poster deserves the title of SW20’s best poster. This competition is open to all SW20 delegates!
