The event will consist of seminar presentations from globally-recognised organisations during which attendees will be introduced to simulation modelling methods and real-life projects implemented by UK users of AnyLogic software.
This is a great opportunity to see how simulation modelling is applied across manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, transportation, business processes, pedestrian flows optimization and road traffic. The day will feature a presentation by Andrei Borshchev, CEO The AnyLogic Company, and there will be plenty of chance to network. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The event is suitable for anyone with an interest in simulation modelling. Whether you are a current user of AnyLogic, or a potential future user wishing to find out more about the software, this event is ideal for finding out more about what simulation can do for you. It is an ideal chance for practitioners to build their network within the simulation community and also for academics wanting to build closer relationships with the practitioner community. Operational Research and Decision Sciences students are encouraged to attend to see how simulation is used in industry and to interface with academics and practitioners in the field.
Running alongside the conference, teams from decisionLab and HSSMI will be using the AnyLogic software to solve some real-life data challenges, through a “data hack”. The results of this will be shared with the conference attendees at the end of the day and will offer further insights into the benefit of the software and usage capabilities.
