MODSIM World 2016

MODSIM World is a unique multi-disciplinary conference for the exchange of modeling and simulation knowledge, research and technology. We join theory and practice across industry, government and academia--providing for an open interchange of information, knowledge and technology.

This year, MODSIM World 2016 will take place April 26-28, 2016 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, VA.

The theme for this year's conference is Empowering User Communities with Modeling and Simulation, which refelcts the importance of users and partners in the business model and the ability for modeling and simulation (M&S) to shape and influence each community.

Sure to attract local, national and international attendance, MODSIM World 2016 will address the state of M&S in the community domains of today; including cyber, energy, healthcare, entrepreneurship, manufacturing, inter-modal transportation, defense, homeland security, and life long learning. Cross-cutting these domains are the enduring tracks of Training and Education, Analytics and Decision-Making, Science and Engineering, and Visualization and Gamification.

In addition to thought provoking keynote speakers, panelists and collaborative events, MODSIM World 2016 is hosting a full schedule of paper presentations from experts around the entire M&S community. The vast and varied world of modeling and simulation technology and thought leadership will be on full display at MODSIM World 2016.
