Event Description:

The 2015 AlaSim International Conference & Exposition brings together the greater modeling and simulation community from Alabama, North America, and 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 include plenary speakers, papers, project briefings, panel discussions, workshops, tutorials, and exhibits displaying simulation products and services. 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 International is organized by the Alabama Modeling and Simulation Council.

  • Speakers: Plenary speakers and industry experts will present project and program papers/briefings about simulation work planned and in-progress. Papers are of the high academic quality capable of surviving rigorous review.
    • Keynote Speaker: Rear Admiral James A. Robb USN (Ret)
      President, National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA)
    • Plenary Speaker: Dr. Dietmar Moeller
      Professor for Stochastic Models in Engineering Science, Clausthal University of Technology
    • Featured Speaker: Steven D. Swaine
      Director, Support & Analytics Technology, Boeing Research & Technology
  • Panel Discussions: Opportunities for open discussion with simulation subject experts.

  • Workshops: An open and collaborative environment for the definition and creation of modeling and simulation products.

  • Tutorials: To provide introductory and advanced training in current simulation technology.

  • Exhibit Area: Where industry exhibitors will be displaying their latest simulation products and capabilities.

  • Sponsorship Opportunities: Opportunities for sponsors to promote their products, message, and/or brand.

Who Should Attend:
