2017 Spring Simulation
Multi-Conference

Virginia Beach, VA USA

APRIL 23 –26, 2017 | VIRGINIA BEACH CONVENTION CENTER | VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA, USA

The 2017 Spring Simulation Multi-conference (SpringSim’17) is an annual conference sponsored by The Society for Modeling and Simulation International which covers state-of-the-art developments in computer simulation technologies, as well as scientific, industrial, and business applications. Areas covered include high-performance computing technologies, models and algorithms, GUI visualization technologies, communications and much more. Application disciplines covered include advanced telecommunication; computer systems; aviation and aerospace; environment, energy, and other industries.

CO-LOCATION

In 2017 we are pleased to be co-locating with the MODSIM World Conference. MODSIM World is a unique multi-disciplinary conference for the exchange of modeling and simulation knowledge, research and technology. They join theory and practice across industry, government and academia–providing for an open interchange of information, knowledge and technology.

WORKSHOPS PROPOSITION

A Call for Workshops is open (see important dates), to raise visibility on topics of focused interest in a particular scientific or applications area. Workshops are held as a part of a Symposium. Proposals for special Workshops should be submitted by email to the corresponding Symposium Chair with a copy to the Program Chair: Andrea D’Ambrogio.
