The 2016 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC 2016) will be held Dec. 11-14 in Arlington, Va., at the Crystal Gateway Marriott. The hotel is located minutes from downtown Washington, D.C., and less than a mile from the Reagan National Airport.  The METRO is connected to the hotel, which makes exploring the area’s monuments, museums, shopping and restaurants very convenient.

WSC is the premier international forum for disseminating advances in the field of dynamic systems modeling and simulation. In addition to a technical program of unsurpassed scope and quality, WSC is the central meeting place for simulation practitioners, researchers and vendors. Research in modeling and simulation is driven by cross-fertilization between various disciplines. The theme for WSC 2016 is “Stimulating Complex Service Systems.”

The call for papers is now open. Complete paper deadlines and requirements are available at Todd Huschka is general chair and Stephen Chick is program chair of WSC 2016.

WSC 2016 is sponsored by ACM/SIGSIM. ASA, ASIM, IEEE/SMC, IIE, INFORMS-SIM and NIST are technical co-sponsors, along with SCS. ORMS
