The 28th European Modeling & Simulation Symposium (Simulation in Industry)


September 26 - 28  2016

The Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

The 28thEMSS, 2016


The dynamic changing behavior of industry processes, due to markets globalization, requires continuous research and development advances for guarantying higher competitiveness. Modeling & Simulation is a growing research field capable of supporting, as powerful decision making tool, industrial evolution.

Authors are kindly invited to include in their papers and presentations all the research works, case studies and application both theoretical and applied. Topics of interests include the following tracks, nevertheless different topics concerning Modeling & Simulation in Industry are welcome.
