Second SIMS EUROSIM Conference on Modelling and Simulation, SIMS EUROSIM 2024, and 65th International Conference of Scandinavian Simulation Society, SIMS 2024, September 11-12, 2024, Original Sokos Hotel Arina, Oulu, Finland


The SIMS EUROSIM conference will be organized every third year by SIMS and the Federation of European Simulation Societies, EUROSIM. The background of this conference series is in the 65-years history of Scandinavian Simulation Society, SIMS. The first SIMS EUROSIM Conference was organized as a virtual conference in 2021. The program of the SIMS EUROSIM 2024 Conference will have a multi-conference structure with several special topics related to methodologies and application areas. The program includes invited talks, parallel, special and poster sessions, exhibition and versatile technical and social tours. The conference is organized by Scandinavian Simulation Society (SIMS), Finnish Simulation Forum (FinSim), Finnish Society of Automation and University of Oulu.

The Scandinavian simulation society, SIMS, originates from Scandinaviska Analogmaskinsällskabet (SAMS), which was founded in 1959. The Finnish Society of Automation (FSA), founded in 1953, is a forum for members and all automation users to disseminate technological experience and to advance professional skills. Finnish Simulation Forum (FinSim) is a division of FSA. The Federation of European Simulation Societies, EUROSIM, was set up in 1989. The purpose of EUROSIM is to provide a European forum for regional and national simulation societies to promote the advancement of modelling and simulation in industry, research and development.
