Follow me to WinterSim
For as long as I’ve been working at SIMUL8 I’ve been helping to organize our attendance at Wintersim, but I’ve never had the opportunity to go… until now!
For those of you who don’t know Wintersim is the main international conference all about simulation. It brings together practitioners, researchers and academics that are using simulation and it’s a great opportunity to find out about all the amazing ways it can be applied to a wide variety of organizations and in everyday life.
Traditionally Wintersim is held in a US city, but this year it’s being held in Europe in the Intercontinental Hotel, Berlin, Germany, which is great as it gives more people the opportunity to attend who maybe haven’t been before.
As well as it being my first time at Wintersim, it’s also my first time going to Berlin, which I’m super excited about, although I’m pretty sure it’s going to be cold there! I’ve been told it’s a really great city and there’s a lot to see, so I’m hoping to get to experience some of it.
However it’s definitely not going to be a vacation while we’re there! There are loads of talks, poster sessions, exhibitions and events to attend at the conference, and we’re exhibiting, so I’ll also be at our stand to chat to everyone about simulation, and what we’ve been up to at SIMUL8 recently.
Frances Sneddon, our CTO, is also presenting a talk on new ideas and approaches to building great simulations, and having heard it I’m really excited to see how it’s received. Internally we’ve been using these approaches on both our consulting projects and in our own teams to be more efficient and to put customers at the heart of what we do and I’m looking forward to see if others think these approaches can apply to their projects too.
If you’re going to be there then come and say hi! We’ll be at booths 18 and 19 and I’d love to hear what you’re using simulation for and find out what you’re enjoying at Wintersim.
If you’re not going to be there then keep up with what’s going on by following us on Facebook and Twitter and look out for my next blog on how it all went!
