Every 2 years, the Modelling and Simulation Society of Australia and New Zealand holds an international congress. The 20th International Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM2013) will be combined with the 22nd National Conference of the Australian Operations Research Society (ASOR 2013) and will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, from Sunday 1 to Friday 6 December 2013. See www.mssanz.org.au/modsim2013 for more details. Initial abstracts are due on April 8.
It promises to be a great event. I plan to be there and to chair a session on Homeland Security & Emergency Management Applications of Modelling & Simulation.
