2006 International Conference on Simulation in Education (ICSiE'06)

Part of the 2006 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'06)

Sponsored by:

ICSiE06 provides a forum for discussion and presentations focusing on the development of a curricular body of knowledge, accreditation criteria for simulation education, and the use of simulation tools in education and training. This year we will offer a session dedicated to the development of the body of knowledge in modeling and simulation for undergraduate and graduate education. We will propose models for undergraduate modeling and simulation education, propose an accreditation approach and criteria, examine certification within the university model, and explore the differences in US and European simulation education structures and needs.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Teaching modeling and simulation
Educational case studies
Design and use of simulators for educational purposes
Modeling and simulation curriculum
Computer and web based education and training
Innovative uses of modeling and simulation
Development of multimedia models and their application in education
New educational paradigms
Virtual reality and potential applications of VR in education
Modeling and simulation for education
Use of simulations for educational purposes
Simulation languages, packages, and simulation-based curricula
Computer-based and simulation-integrated laboratories
New software and hardware developments and their impact
Experiences in integrating computers and software tools in education
Government and corporate programs in support of computer- and multimedia-based education

Authors interested in topics listed above are encouraged to submit four copies of the extended abstract, up to two pages long, and a one-page summary to the Program Chair
