Australasian Simulation Congress 2023
21 – 24 August 2023 | Adelaide Convention Centre
The Simulation Australasia Board and the 2023 Australasian Simulation Congress Organising Committee warmly invite you to join us at the Australasian Simulation Congress 2023 (ASC 2023) from 21 to 24 August 2023 at the Adelaide Convention Centre. This year’s Congress will explore contemporary challenges for simulation practitioners through the theme, ‘Life between reality and simulation‘.
The ASC 2023 will once again bring together the SimHealth, SimTecT and Serious Games streams, along with opportunities for a number of joint sessions of mutual interest. However, we are also delighted to partner this year with the Systems Engineering Society of Australia (SESA) and the International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA) to deliver an integrated transdisciplinary event bringing together system thinking, modelling and simulation as foundational enablers to contemporary societal challenges.
The ASC congresses have provided a forum for international research, academic innovation and industry communities in Modelling and Simulation and Training for over two decades, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. SESA and ITEA have run similar conferences over the same time period, and for 2023, will combine their efforts into ASC 2023. This year’s event will extend that richness further through a transdisciplinary and integrative approach to the use of modelling and simulation to deal efficiently and effectively with contemporary societal challenges. The ASC 2023 program will feature keynote speeches, full-paper and paperless oral and poster presentations, as well as masterclasses/tutorials, special interest panels and workshops delivered by leading experts in their respective simulation fields.
The ASC 2023 theme reflects the practical considerations for bringing simulations to life: budgets, diversity and inclusion, ethics, innovation and purposeful holistic approaches. Practitioners are increasingly called on to juggle operational realities in an environmental context of increasing socio-technical complexity with ongoing skills and workforce shortages exacerbated by a global pandemic, increasingly frequent natural disasters and a shifting geo-political balance. Modelling and simulation approaches are foundational transdisciplinary enablers to innovations that span the scope of emerging technologies as well as creating new ways of working together.
Join us in Adelaide to share, inform, experience and explore modelling, simulation, and system approaches in research, education, health, defence, resources and many other sectors. Connect with like-minded simulation developers and practitioners from across sectors and around the world!
