SimFringe

Inspired by the concepts of a ‘Fringe Festival’ – SimFringe is an opportunity for the entire Australasian Simulation Congress (ASC) community to come together, share ideas, network and learn in new and different ways. Not set by the boundaries of a specific simulation sector, SimFringe offers a variety of activities where all ASC attendees can share ideas and be themselves. SimFringe experiences will inspire you to expand your simulation horizons, meet new people and think outside the box…

Tell us about your SimFringe and other Congress experiences on Twitter! Use the hashtag #SimCongress

SimFringe Film Fest - #ASCfilmfest

Move aside Cannes and Tropfest, the SimFringe Film Festival is hitting town!

We are introducing a concurrent digital conference where you are invited to submit a short 5-min film showcasing YOUR activities related to congress theme of Balance and Disruption.

 

Show us what you are doing now!

Have you just started or almost finished?

Are you stuck and not sure which direction to move in?

 Do you want some feedback on an element of what you are doing to improve it?

We want to see what you are doing/have done and open the communication lines for those who are not able to physically make it to the Congress.

 

We will host your short video online so everyone can see and provide moderated feedback, showcasing your work to a larger audience.

Be involved in ASC19, from your home!
