AlaSim allows a variety of formats for attendees and participants to see, be seen, hear, be heard, teach, and learn about the science and technology of simulation. Elements planned for AlaSim 2016 include plenary speakers, papers, project briefings, panel discussions, workshops, tutorials, and exhibits displaying simulation products and services. The conference is designed both to showcase the breadth and depth of simulation activity in Alabama and to collect, document, display and discuss the current state of simulation technology throughout the world. AlaSim International is organized by the Alabama Modeling and Simulation Council.</p> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 1.3em; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 1.1em; line-height: 1.3em; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff;">For more information please visit&nbsp;<a href="http://www.almsc.org/alasim-international.shtml">http://www.almsc.org/alasim-international.shtml</a></p> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 1.3em; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 1.1em; line-height: 1.3em; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff;"><img src="http://www.almsc.org/img/alasim-2016-header-940.jpg" alt="AlaSim International" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: initial; max-width: 100%; font-family: 'Open Sans', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 24px; display: block; width: 940px; height: 170px;" /></p> Annual Conferences Mon, 07 Dec 2015 15:34:24 +0000 156 at http://www.m-sug.org Simulation Modeling for System Design and Optimization II http://www.m-sug.org/node/151 <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2015-11-19T18:50:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 11/19/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2015-11-20T18:50:00Z"><label>End: </label> 11/20/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2015-11-19T18:50:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 11/19/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2015-11-20T18:50:00Z"><label>End: </label> 11/20/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <p>See attached document</p><table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href="http://www.m-sug.org/system/files/FALL%202015%20Brochure_0.pdf">FALL 2015 Brochure.pdf</a></td><td>576.17 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Industry Events Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:54:17 +0000 151 at http://www.m-sug.org Simulation Modeling for System Design and Optimization I http://www.m-sug.org/node/150 <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2015-11-16T18:38:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 11/16/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2015-11-18T18:38:00Z"><label>End: </label> 11/18/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2015-11-16T18:38:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 11/16/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2015-11-18T18:38:00Z"><label>End: </label> 11/18/2015 </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <p>See attachment for details</p><table id="attachments" class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><a href="http://www.m-sug.org/system/files/FALL%202015%20Brochure.pdf">FALL 2015 Brochure.pdf</a></td><td>576.17 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Industry Events Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:48:04 +0000 150 at http://www.m-sug.org
