ISC 2003 - Industrial Simulation Conference
by Ana Pajares, Juan C. Guerri and Carlos Palau
The first Industrial Simulation Conference (ISC'2003) was held in Valencia, Spain, from 9-11 June 2003. This annual international conference is intended to give a complete overview of recent industrial simulation related research for the european community and the rest of the world.
The meeting, hosted by the Communications Department of the Technical University of Valencia, was organized by the European Simulation Society (Eurosis) and co-sponsored by the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Industries Textiles (ENSAIT) and the Ghent University. With the objective of exchanging techniques and ideas among universities and industry, ISC'2003 put together both scentific research results from universities and practical approaches from industry, which participated with a variety of contributions to the following topics:
- Verification and Analysis
- Complex System Simulation
- Simulation in Electronics
- Simulation in Engineering
- Automotive Simulation
- Simulation in Logistics
- Simulation in Manufacturing
- Chemical Engineering and Energy Simulation
- Simulation in Robotics and Multibody Applications
- Simulation in Aerospace and Traffic
- Modelling and Simulation in the Textile Industry.
More than 80 scientific papers were presented at ISC'2003, which were published in the proceedings of the conference. Besides these contributions, the conference also included a keynote speech about knowledge discovery in databases and modelling, and two tutorials concerning parallelism in discrete event simulation and modelling and simulation of complex cell spaces. Together with the ISC'2003 conference a workshop on modelling and simulation in the textile industry took place.
The second edition of ISC (ISC'2004) will be held in Malaga, Spain.
