Managing cumulative risks through model-based processes
The 22nd International Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM2017) will be held at The Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, Tasmania, Australia from Sunday 3 to Friday 8 December 2017.
ASOR will be joining us again, for the 25th National Conference of the Australian Society for Operations Research as will the DSTO led Defence Operations Research Symposium (DORS 2017).
In addition to the traditional modelling and simulation papers in diverse areas, papers will explore the conference theme from a wide spectrum of disciplinary perspectives organised in different streams. Papers can take a number of approaches including quantitative modelling as well as qualitative, procedural and stakeholder techniques. As well as innovative approaches using novel modelling objectives, we strongly encourage papers that consider modelling techniques and practices that explicitly consider societal and political risk.
Special themes of the conference will include pragmatic policy evaluation, scenario modelling of uncertain futures under climate change, resource constraints, colliding 'catastrophes' and limited budgets. We are also ramping up the number of our optional Wednesday workshops for this MODSIM, openly inviting members soon to set up Special Interest Groups and put suggestions forward for a workshop in their area of interest.
MSSANZ will continue to develop its strong Student Awards for MODSIM2017!
Awards for Biennial Medals, Fellows and Early Career Research Excellence will be presented at the Gala Dinner.
