Call for Papers & Presentations (pdf)

Please mark your calendars for the first-ever SISO SIMposium, to be held September 21-22, 2021.  The SISO SIMposium will feature a mix of papers/presentations, topical panel sessions, and invited speakers.  For the first time at a SISO event, short 5-to-10 minute presentations, which we are calling SIMbriefs, will be considered for presentation as an alternative to SIMtalks (customary longer presentations).  The SISO SIMposium will be 100% virtual.

The Abstract Submission Site is now open.  Deadline for Abstract Submission is July 31, 2021.

SISO hopes to hold this event annually, as a complement to the "face-to-face" Simulation Innovation Workshop (SIW) held each February in Orlando, FL.

Please contact Patrick T. Rowe, Executive Director of SISO, at prowe@sisostds.org with any questions about the SIMposium.
