Eurosim 2010, Prague

7th EUROSIM Congress on Modelling and Simulation

September 6-10, 2010, Diplomat Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic

The Congress was organized by the Czech and Slovak Simulation Society CSSS in cooperation with the Czech Technical University in Prague.

More than 235 papers from almost 41 countries were submitted during the rewieving process.

All the papers were revised by two members of the International Programme Committee (IPC). Altogether 185 contributions were accepted by the IPC and then included in the final programme. This proves that modelling and simulation is, in spite of being a very traditional discipline, still attractive, modern, and with a wide range of applications and research possibilities, and is closely connected with many of the most sophisticated and modern disciplines.

Germany (46), Austria (37), Czech Republic (29), Slovenia (18), France (8), Slovakia (8), Spain (7), Finland (5), Italy (5), Japan (5), USA (5), Romania (4), Russia (4), Serbia (4), United Kingdom (4), Croatia (3), Bosnia and Herzeg. (2), Latvia (2), Mexico (2), R. South Africa (2), Sweden (1), Bulgaria (1), Brasil (1), China (1), Denmark (1), Greece (1), India (1), Iran (1), Lebanon (1), Poland (1), Rep. of Macedonia (1), Swizerland (1), Tunisia (1), UAE (1), Ukraine (1)

The scope of the congress included all aspects of continuous, discrete (event) and hybrid modelling, simulation, identification and optimisation approaches. The programme scheme consisted of
Invited Plenary Talks,
Special Sessions and Ad-hoc Sessions,
Scientific Invited Performance and
Poster Session

Five Invited Plenary Talks and one scientific performance were presented by outstanding speakers and presenters. All of them are well known european experts in the field of modelling and simulation (see titles and presenters below). Scientific Invited Performance was the traditional Laura-Petrarca Case.

  • Human Behaviour Modelling as a Challenge for Future Simulation R&D: Methodologies and Case Studies
    Agostino G. Bruzzone, University of Genoa (IT)   
  • Agent-Based Simulations of Transportation Terminals
    Antonin Kavicka, University of Pardubice (CZ) ,  Norbert Adamko, University of Žilina (SK)
  • Physical Modelling: Some Experiences from Education and Applications
    Borut Zupančič, University of Ljubljana (SL)   
  • Modelica   
    Peter Fritzson, University of Linkopinkg (SE)    
  • Modelling and Simulation in Health Technology Assessment
    Felix Breitenecker, Vienna University of Technology (AT)   
  • Behave Emotions like Transfer Functions? - The Laura-Petrarca Case
    LAURA Group, Vienna Univ. of Technology (AT)

The regular programme consisted of regular papers presented in parallel (4-5) running sessions and posters. The only distinction was in the form of presentation: oral or poster.
