Simulation Drives Innovation

Virtual Conference

We live in exciting times in which the power of data and computing are at our fingertips. With this increased power comes increased complexity – which invites simulation as a natural tool to help drive innovation. This, in turn, allows us to innovate in the theory and practice of simulation itself. We invite papers that highlight innovations in both simulation theory and applications, with a specific interest in innovative uses of simulation in unconventional areas such as the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
