Conference Information


The Unit of Rimini of the Department of Statistical Sciences of Bologna University in collaboration with the Department of Management and Engineering of the University of Padova, the Department of Statistical Modelling of Saint Petersburg State University and INFORMS Simulation Society are sponsoring the Seventh International Workshop on Simulation.

This international conference is devoted to statistical techniques in stochastic simulation, data collection and analysis of scientific experiments and studies representing broad areas of interest. All the previous Workshops took place in St. Petersburg (Russia). The first Workshop took place in May 1994, the second Workshop in June 1996, the third in June 1998, the fourth in June 2001, the fifth in June 2005 and the sixth in June 2009 (see

The Seventh International Workshop on Simulation will take place in the Rimini Campus of the University of Bologna in the historical centre of Rimini (see google maps). The scientific program will be carried out from May 21 to May 24, while May 25 will be devoted to social/free activities. A book of abstracts will be available at the beginning of the Conference.
