Mercure Rougemont Hotel, Exeter

Held in cooperation with: The INFORMS Simulation Society (I-SIM)

The biennial OR Society Simulation Workshop brings together academics, practitioners and students working in the field of modelling & simulation. It provides an opportunity to exchange ideas on the current and future state-of-the-art in modelling and simulation. The programme consists of keynote presentations, panel discussions, beginner/advanced tutorials, and parallel streams. Breaks between sessions and the conference dinner provide an excellent opportunity for networking. The exhibition area includes poster displays and some of the latest developments in simulation software tools.

As part of the Journal of Simulation Africa Focus initiative (2024-2026), the workshop will include special sessions on modelling and simulation research conducted in or related to the African region. Papers, posters and presentations are sought that advance simulation theory, methodology, and practice within the unique contexts, challenges, and opportunities of the African region. The Africa Focus sessions are expected to be either online or hybrid sessions. Please contact the Conference Chairs for further information.
