Event Description:

The 2015 AlaSim International Conference & Exposition brings together the greater modeling and simulation community from Alabama, North America, and the world. The conference is designed both to showcase the breadth and depth of simulation activity in Alabama and to collect, document, display and discuss the current state of simulation technology throughout the world. AlaSim allows a variety of formats for attendees and participants to see, be seen, hear, be heard, teach, and learn about the science and technology of simulation. Elements planned for AlaSim 2015: Plenary speakers, papers, project briefings, panel discussions, workshops, tutorials, and exhibits displaying simulation products and services. AlaSim International is organized by the Alabama Modeling and Simulation Council.
