Simulation OR

The Simulation Special Interest Group (SIG) provides a forum for academics, practitioners and software vendors to discuss the most recent advances in simulation theory and methodologies, to exchange ideas on simulation practice, to promote collaboration among its members, and to engage in impact-related activities.

Since 2002, the group has been running a bi-annual OR Society conference on simulation called the Simulation Workshop. Members of the group also contribute to the Journal of Simulation (ORS journal) in senior editorial roles. The group organises a number of meetings and one-day workshops on cutting-edge simulation research and topics of relevance to SIG members. For example, in the summer of 2018, the group facilitated the Simulation SIG Road Trip with Professor Paul Fishwick, which included meetings in seven UK cities.

The group encourages those who are interested in attending or organising future meetings and workshops to join the mailing list to get the conversation going.

The biennial OR Society Simulation Workshop brings together practitioners and academics 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 a keynote presentation, panel discussion, 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.

The programme will include plenary sessions, special focus streams, beginner/advanced tutorials, and posters. Contributions to the technical programme are sought in the following areas, although papers in any area of simulation modelling and analysis will be considered.
