International Congress on Modelling and Simulation

Advances and Applications for Management and Decision Making

Modelling & Simulation Society of Australia & New ZealandThe congress theme of "Advances and Applications for Management and Decision Making" was selected to reinforce the importance of modelling and simulation developments for management and decision making, particularly those which have not been present at recent MODSIM conferences. There was also a focus on the application of modelling and simulation techniques to a broad range of real-world problems.
