        Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the wellbeing of delegates, staff and the public, SW21 will take place online. Keep an eye out for further information to be announced soon.

        High-quality talks – guaranteed

        The conference typically features 30 high-quality practitioner and researcher papers detailing applied case studies and theoretical developments in the field of computer simulation. Our programme is packed with interesting papers showcasing simulation work on discrete event simulation optimisation, metamodels, system dynamics, hybrid simulation, as well as on teaching simulation in the classroom. You will hear from authors from different destinations across the globe, USA, Spain, France, Ireland and the UK.

        Prof. Susan M. Sanchez,?Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA?

        Title of talk:
        Data farming: the meaning and methods behind the metaphor

        Dr Young-Jun Son, Systems and Industrial Engineering, The University of Arizona?

        Title of talk:
        A DDDAMS-based Surveillance and Crowd Control via UAVs and UGVs

        Celebrating 20 years: The story of the simulation workshop

        SW21This year marks the 10th Operational Research Society Simulation Workshop (SW). It is 20 years since the planning commenced for the very first SW which took place in Birmingham in March 2002.

        To mark this occasion, this article presents a short history of the conference including the events that led up to the first conference, details of the first SW, a summary of all 10 SWs, and how all this led to the creation of the Journal of Simulation. As founders of the conference series we provide our personal reflections on these events.

        Rates & Registration

        Fees cover access to all sessions over the five days along with networking opportunities, discussion forums where you will be able to discuss all the hot topics with your peers and conference material. Early Bird deadline: 29 January 2021

        Enjoy our technical sessions

        Feedback from delegates asks for more technical talks about simulation methodology and so following the success of the simulation tutorial sessions, we are pleased to announce that the conference will continue to feature an extra half-day dedicated to tutorial sessions for beginners and experienced simulation modellers alike.

        We have created a programme of stimulating technical sessions by speakers from government, industry and academia on a range of subjects across a variety of industry sectors.? The final programme will be distributed nearer the date.

        Zoo Modelling Hackathon – with prizes!

        We are planning a surprise “zoo modelling” competition with a hands-on exercise. Seasoned and novice modellers will be invited to join and work in groups in a hackathon-type environment during the conference, with prizes to be given out. Watch the space for more details to follow.


        Special Interest Group

        The Simulation Special Interest group will also meet to discuss the SIGs ambitious plans, including past activities, ideas for future directions, assess the potential for hosting the flagship Winter Simulation Conference 2026 in the UK or Ireland. The session will be chaired by the SIG chair Dr Stephan Onggo (University of Southampton).


        Closing Panel Session

        The conference will close with a topical panel session on artificial intelligence and simulation with the title Artificial Intelligence and Simulation: Friend or Foe?, chaired by Professor Simon Taylor from Brunel University.


        Women in OR & Analytics Network Event

        This year we are hosting a Women in OR & Analytics Network event.??We need your voice, your knowledge and your experience to help us to build a strong, self-supporting network and to set better conditions for each new generation of women entering these professions.
