Simulation Society

Mailing List

The Simulation Society listserv has been successfully transitioned to the Simulation Society Community in INFORMS Connect (http://connect.informs.org) and is no longer accepting messages. Messages are now to be posted only to the Simulation Society Community page.

If you are a current paid member of Simulation Society, your subscription has been automatically migrated to the new platform as a “Daily Digest” subscriber. Each day you will receive an email summary of the previous day’s messages. If you would prefer to receive messages in real time, you have the option of changing your subscription once you have signed in to the INFORMS Connect community.

If you are not a current paid member of Simulation Society, join now to avoid losing access to valuable community content.

We encourage you to take 10 minutes and visit INFORMS Connect now: http://connect.informs.org. Login to INFORMS Connect using your INFORMS Self Service username and password. Forgot your password? Reset your password here.

  • Announcements of job openings for simulation analysts and researchers.
  • Announcements of new working papers, articles, programs, for comment and discussion.
  • Substantive discussion concerning topics such as input modeling, output analysis, agent-based simulation, rare event simulation, to name just a few of the topics of interest to our members.
  • Comments, questions, and contributions on curriculum questions; suggested texts, cases, new articles of common interest for course-related adoption, etc.
  • Brief "war stories" describing interesting or novel applications.

Upcoming Events

2017 INFORMS Simulation Society Research Workshop: Towards an Ecosystem of Simulation Models and Data, July 31– August 2, 2017, University of Durham, UK. 

The simulation community faces major challenges and opportunities both in exploiting available real-world data and in extracting insights from the massive data sets produced from large-scale simulation experiments. The goal of the 2017 Workshop is to promote fruitful interactions between the data science and simulation communities. The website is http://www.isim2017.tk.

INFORMS Annual Meeting, October 22-25, 2017, Houston, TX, USA

Each year, the INFORMS meeting brings together experts from academia, industry and government to consider a broad range of ORMS and analytics research and applications.
