WSC 2017: ‘Simulation Everywhere’

Winter Simulation Conference

The 2017 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC 2017) will be held Dec. 3-6 in Las Vegas at the Red Rock Resort.

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 working in all disciplines in industry, service, government, military and academic sectors.

The theme for WSC 2017 is “WSC Turns 50: Simulation Everywhere!” After 50 years, we are now beyond modeling and simulation using grid and cloud computing, Web-based and distributed simulation and other recent technologies. We need to deal with computing power and storage in heterogeneous environments, resources virtualization; services consumed on demand (with minimal limitation for resource location), power issues, massive data sets. We face new challenges as we have ubiquitous processors that can process applications on demand.

The call for papers is now open.  Complete paper deadlines and requirements are available at WSC 2017 general chair is Ernest H. Page and program chair is Gabriel Wainer.

WSC 2017 is sponsored by ACM/SIGSIM, IISE (Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers), INFORMS-SIM and SCS (Society for Modeling and Simulation International), with Technical Co-Sponsorship from ASA (American Statistical Association), ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation), IEEE/SMC (Systems, Man and Cybernetics) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
