OR Society 9th Simulation Workshop

OR Society 9th Simulation Workshop

9th Simulation Workshop (SW18)

19 – 21 MARCH 2018

ETTINGTON CHASE HOTEL, STRATFORD, WORCESTERSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM CV37 7NZ

19th – 21st March 2018 sees the return of the OR Society’s biennial simulation workshop (SW18). The conference always boasts an excellent mix of delegates from the fields of simulation practice and research. The conference covers application and theoretical developments across all simulation methods, for example agent based simulation, system dynamics, discrete-event simulation and monte-carlo simulation. We have updated and refreshed the conference this year keeping the best of the original format and adding some exciting new elements.

New UK System Dynamics book published

Discrete-Event Simulation and System Dynamics for Management Decision Making

Sally Brailsford (Editor), Leonid Churilov (Editor), Brian Dangerfield (Editor)

In recent years, there has been a growing debate, particularly in the UK and Europe, over the merits of using discrete-event simulation (DES) and system dynamics (SD); there are now instances where both methodologies were employed on the same problem. This book details each method, comparing each in terms of both theory and their application to various problem situations. It also provides a seamless treatment of various topics–theory, philosophy, detailed mechanics, practical implementation–providing a systematic treatment of the methodologies of DES and SD, which previously have been treated separately.
