Winter Simulation Conference 2018
Simulation for a Noble Cause

2018 Winter Simulation ConferenceThe Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) is the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of system simulation. In addition to a technical program of unsurpassed scope and quality, WSC provides the central meeting place for simulation practitioners, researchers, and vendors working in all disciplines in industry, service, government, military and academic sectors.

Simulation has been found useful for a range of scientific, engineering and business applications as evident by the papers presented at Winter Simulation Conferences over the past 50 years. Simulation has been employed to help noble causes too over the recent past but such efforts have received limited attention. The 2018 conference seeks to highlight applications of simulation for noble causes in addition to continuing to report leading developments and applications in other fields. The track sessions will feature uses of simulation in efforts analyzing and addressing issues facing humanity including, but not limited to, reducing poverty and world hunger, social causes, social problems, improving natural environment, and disaster response.

Learn about simulation applications for analyzing social issues such as human trafficking in the keynote address by Dr. Jean Baderschneider, CEO of the Global Fund to End Slavery. Two excellent speakers will present during the conference lunches, Dr. Peter Frazier, Associate Professor at Cornell University and Staff Data Scientist and Data Science Manager at Uber, and Dr. Russell Cheng, Emeritus Professor at the University of Southampton.

WSC 2018 is sponsored by: ACM/SIGSIM, IISE (Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers), INFORMS-SIM and SCS (Society for Modeling and Simulation International), with Technical Co-Sponsorship from ASA (American Statistical Association), ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation), IEEE/SMC (Systems, Man and Cybernetics) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

About Gothenburg

Gothenburg is located on the Swedish west coast. Founded almost 400 years ago, the city blends a distinct feeling of charm with the pulse of modern urban life.

In December, Gothenburg is adorned with lights to celebrate the upcoming holiday. It is also time for Scandinavia’s largest Christmas market at the Liseberg Amusement Park, as well as other traditional markets, traditional Lucia celebrations, and happenings around town. The tram-rattled streets are lined with cosy cafés and restaurants where cuisine from all over the world is offered at reasonable prices.
