49 th SIMS Conference on Simulation and
Modelling, SIMS 2008, October 7-8 2008, Oslo, Norway
The purpose of the annual SIMS conference is to cover broad aspects of modeling
and simulation and scientific computation. Every year a special topic will be
considered. This year topics are parallel simulation and grid computing.
The conference is of interest for model builders, scientists, engineers,
vendors, etc. The scientific program will consist of technical sessions with
submitted and invited papers. The Procedings of the Conference will be
published electronically by Oslo University College. Selected papers will be
considered for publication in relevant journals. Ph.D. students in particular
are encouraged to contribute with papers.

SIMS is the Scandinavian Simulation Society with members from the five Nordic
countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Iceland. The SIMS history goes
back to 1959. SIMS practical matters are taken care of by the SIMS board.
It consists of two representatives from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden,
and eventually one from Iceland. (The representative from Iceland has not been elected yet).
SIMS annual meeting
takes place at the annual SIMS conference or in connection to international
simulation conferences arranged in the Nordic countries.
