  • Annual Simulation Symposium

    Joachim Denil, University of Antwerp, Belgium and Deniz Cetinkaya, Bournemouth University, UK

    Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is currently the core of many industrial processes. It is a vital ingredient, since it can support early evaluation and optimization of designs, as well as ongoing verification while changes occur to make sure that the right product is developed with the required quality. However, there are still businesses that must understand that embracing M&S in project development and management is good practice, and this can be done by showing real-world examples of success.
    Real-world applications have always been the driving force for the development of M&S theories. For over 50 years, the Annual Simulation Symposium has been a forum to exchange ideas, results, and methods related to real-world theories and applications of M&S for simulation experts in industry, government, and academia.
    The purpose of this track is to highlight and advance rigorous experimental and computational practices of M&S devoted to the study of real-world problems. Research on all topics concerning the practice of M&S theories are welcome. Authors are invited to submit original research papers, including case studies and applications.

    Recommended topics in the track include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Advances in the field of M&S for implementation purposes
    • Application of modeling formalisms into real world applications
    • Rigorous comparisons across M&S techniques
    • Model checking, formalism-based model debugging, model transformation

  • Humans, Societies, and Artificial Agents

    Taylor Anderson, George Mason University, USA and Petra Ahrweiler, Johannes Gutenberg University, Germany

    Agent-based models (ABMs), cellular automata, and microsimulations model systems through the lens of complex systems theory. More specifically, such approaches simulate populations of possibly heterogeneous individuals as they utilize either simple behavioral rules or learning models to govern their interactions with each other and their environment, and from which system-level properties emerge. Such modeling and simulation approaches have supported a wide range of applications related to human societies (e.g., traffic and urban planning, economics, natural hazards, national security, epidemiology) and research tasks (e.g., exploring what-if scenarios, predictive models, data generation, hypothesis testing, policy formation and generation).
    Despite the multitude of advancements in the last few decades, there remain longstanding challenges that limit the usefulness of such models in the policy cycle. Such challenges include but are not limited to: capturing realistic individual and collective social behaviors; basic issues in model development (calibration, scalability, model reusability, difficulties in generalizing findings); and making transparent the strengths and limitations of models. This track focuses generally on advancements in modeling and simulation approaches in application to human societies that seek to overcome these challenges, with a special interest in policy modeling and the inclusion of models in the policy cycle.

    Thus, authors are encouraged to submit papers that include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

    • Applications of artificial societies (e.g., modeling group decisions and collective behaviors, emergence of
      social structures and norms, dynamics of social networks)
    • Data collection for artificial societies (e.g., using simulations to identify data gaps, population simulations
      with multiple data sources, use of the Internet-of-Things)
    • Design and implementation of artificial agents and societies (e.g., case studies, analyses of moral and
      ethical considerations)
    • Participatory modeling and simulation
    • Policy modeling
    • Fostering dialog between modelers and policy makers
    • Improved models of social behavior
    • Simulations of societies as public educational tools
    • Mixed-methods (e.g., analyzing or generating text data with artificial societies, combining machine
      learning and artificial societies)
    • Models of individual decision-making, mobility patterns, or socio-environmental interactions
    • Testbeds and environments to facilitate artificial society development
    • Tools and methods (e.g., agent-based models, case-based modeling, soft systems)
    • Addressing longstanding challenges (model validation, re-use, communication)
  • Health and Medicine

    Özgür M. Araz, University of Nebraska -- Lincoln, USA and Srini Venkatramanan, University of Virginia, USA

    Modeling and simulation techniques have been widely adopted across various domains such as healthcare, clinical medicine, and population health. In healthcare settings, simulations have been useful to represent medical processes at a large scale (e.g., emergency rooms, hospitals) to identify bottlenecks in patient treatment and improve efficiencies. Computer-based medical simulations are useful for synthesizing the response of tissues to therapy while trading off between response fidelity and computational efficiency. High-fidelity clinical simulation and disease progression modeling can be used to provide insights for experienced clinicians to optimize across treatment options. Finally population health modeling and simulation tools have been useful for guiding real-time epidemic response while also understanding the impact of various policies on different aspects of community health. These may range from individual level agent-based models to aggregate simulations including system dynamics models. Such methods could also be used to address healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) which impact both public health and healthcare operations.
    Multiple recent advances in computational modeling are yet to be fully exploited in health and medicine. High-performance computing (HPC) intensive simulation tools are needed for studying multiscale dynamics such as co-evolving epidemics and health impacts of extreme weather events on the population. Application of deep learning techniques for complementing such simulations through surrogate modeling is an active research area. For clinical simulations, the use of Virtual Reality (VR) and haptics to enhance real-time interactivity is promising for skill acquisition and training. Interactive platforms for exploring simulated outcomes in the healthcare and medical simulations could improve uptake among clinicians and health system administrators. Efficient integration of domain knowledge and complex data calibration in the case of biomedical simulations is needed to improve fidelity of tissue response to therapy. Finally, coupling such simulations with medical imaging techniques to improve diagnosis capabilities would be greatly beneficial.

    This track encourages submissions on simulation aspects of health and medicine that include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Simulation for healthcare systems and medical processes
    • Predictive models and simulations for disease progression
    • Surgery and therapy simulation

  • Sustainability and Resource Management

    Ursula Eicker, Concordia University, Canada and Ankica Barisic, Université Côte d'Azur, France

    Sustainability emerges as both a profound challenge and a tremendous opportunity in this century. The imperative of achieving sustainable development, where present needs are met without compromising the well-being of future generations, has never been more apparent. This involves a harmonious integration of social equity, economic growth, and environmental preservation, recognizing their interconnectedness across various dimensions.
    Sustainability-aware systems must explicitly balance trade-offs between factors like cost reduction, emission reduction, positive social behaviors and system evolution ease.
    The call stresses the growing importance of supporting sustainability through modeling and analysis, particularly in complex systems like cyber-physical systems, and it also highlights the significance of addressing sustainability in urban contexts, as cities increasingly determine global resource use. The call addresses software and systems, which adhere to sustainability principles or which support sustainability goals. Sustainability modeling might include energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, societal and economic impact, inclusivity, and adaptability for prolonged viability. The urgent need for urban transformation strategies is emphasized, covering aspects such as sustainable mobility, efficient buildings, industry and urban infrastructure, renewables, and circular economy concepts. The challenges of congestion, affordable housing, and overspending on biocapacity are acknowledged, with a call to address climate change-related problems through decarbonizing urban infrastructure and innovative concepts for load management, flexibility, storage, and local renewables.

    Artificial Intelligence has fundamentally changed how we conduct our business, research, teaching, and even shopping, among other activities, often through the automation of routine tasks and the mediation of human/machine interactions. In the age of Large Language Models, there is a focus on generative models of AI and their impact on human labour. However, both generative and non-generative AI are increasingly and consistently being incorporated into the many facets of research practice and outcomes. As the M&S community moves forward, we need to consider not only the technical but also the methodological and ethical challenges when integrating AI into our research. This includes how ML/AI methods can expand M&S theory and practice and how M&S can be a key component in the advancement of ML/AI.
    The Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (ML/AI) track seeks to engage scholars, across domains, on discussing the ML/AI and M&S synergy: from the philosophical to the technical, from the theoretical to the empirical.
    The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • AI-mediated M&S and M&S-mediated AI
    • Generative AI and the design and development of models
    • Generative AI and the interpretation of models
