GWI supporting MODSIM2021
The 24th International Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM2021) is being held in Sydney in December as a hybrid conference. The theme of the conference for this year is “Modelling for action with a flood of data and a cloud of uncertainty” - which is particularly pertinent given the uncertainty in our world at present due to COVID19. MODSIM2021 will focus on how modelling and simulation can be used to translate data into action. Building on the traditional modelling and simulation papers in diverse areas, papers will explore the conference theme from a wide spectrum of disciplinary perspectives organised in different streams. Papers can approach the theme from different angles, including quantitative and qualitative modelling, and stakeholder engagement techniques. Streams for the conference span water resources, global change and hazards, ecology, applied and computational mathematics, energy, infrastructure and planning, health and biosecurity, water quality and operations research.
UNSW-GWI is sponsoring the student awards for MODSIM which have historically provided wonderful recognition to PhD researchers presenting at the conference. A number of GWI researchers are involved with the conference including Professors Jason Evans and Lucy Marshall who are two of the convenors and Associate Professor Fiona Johnson who is chair of the local organising committee, with other GWI researchers organising conference sessions.
The conference is being held at The University of Sydney and International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour, from Sunday 5 to Thursday 9 December 2021 with a workshop day on Friday 10 December.
Submissions can either be extended abstracts or full papers. Full papers are due by 23rd August and extended abstracts are due 11th October. More information on the conference can be found on the MODSIM2021 website.
