2020 OR-Society Simulation Workshop – Call for papers

Category : Call for papers

10th OR Society Simulation Workshop 2020 (SW20), 30 March – 1 April 2020, Loughborough, UK, held in cooperation with the INFORMS Simulation Society (www.theorsociety.com/SW20).

The 10th OR Society’s Simulation Workshop 2020 invites authors to submit academic research papers, industrial case studies and practitioner papers. The Simulation Workshop is a biannual conference that brings together practitioners and academics working in the field of modelling & simulation. It provides an opportunity to exchange ideas on the current and future state-of-the-art in modelling and simulation.

Please submit your papers through the EasyChair link (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sw20). We look forward to receiving your paper submissions and seeing you at SW20!

The workshop will include plenary sessions, special focus streams, introductory/advanced tutorials and posters. Contributions to the technical programme are sought in the following areas, although papers in any area of simulation modelling and analysis will be considered.
