OR63: Simulation

We are looking for presentations on how we can create a better future with simulation.

Simulation affects so many aspects of our lives, with everything from healthcare to manufacturing relying on the expertise of simulation. 

Many people from across the OR spectrum have stepped up to offer ways their speciality can help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those working in simulation are no different, and we would like to hear about your projects at OR63.

We're now looking for OR professionals, data scientists, professors, researchers, analysts, engineers, etc., to present at this event. Submit your 300-word presentation summary on simulation by the now extended deadline of the 25th of June to join our expert OR63 speakers!


Submissions deadline extended: 25 June 2021

Share your simulation projects

The simulation stream welcomes submissions from those in industry, academia and the public sector that focus on any aspect of modelling and computer simulation (M&S). Topics of interest are not limited to but will include:

  • Simulation theory (e.g., DEVS, Parallel and Distributed Simulation, model reusability),
  • Single-technique Simulation - the use of conventional single-technique approaches to modelling using Discrete-event Simulation (DES), System Dynamics (SD), Agent-based Simulation (ABS), Monte Carlo, etc.
  • Hybrid Simulation - the use of multiple techniques like DES, ABS and SD in the context of a single simulation study
  • Hybrid Modelling – studies that have applied interdisciplinary approaches, including Soft Operations Research, Big Data/Data Science/Machine Learning/AI, Industrial Automation (e.g., digital twin) with computer simulation.
  • Case studies related to COVID-19, Circular Economy, Digital Economy and Industry 4.0, Climate Emergency and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are also keen to receive case studies that demonstrate the benefits of simulation in practice in all areas.
  • Standards: This may include work on the reproducibility of simulation studies, open science/open data initiatives, and work related to the development of M&S standards (e.g., SISO PDG, IEEE standards).

Submit your 300-word summary now to speak at our simulation stream.
