Simulation News Europe - July Issue

Simulation News Europe - July Issue

"The European Multidisciplinary Society for Modelling and Simulation Technology"

Dear Colleague,
welcome to the July issue of the electronic Simulation News Europe Newsletter of EUROSIS. It took me just a bit longer to get back to our newsletter then I had expected but things were a bit hectic in the past months.
Last point, if in the next couple of weeks I reply a bit later then expected, don't worry as I'm in and out of hospital for treatment and I will get back to you asap.
Having said that, do enjoy the issue or your holiday.

This issue has the following topics:
1) EUROSIS Members Update
2) Job Offer
3) EUROSIS Conferences Update
4) Online Pictures Update
5) New EUROSIS Publications
6) Website updates

1) EUROSIS Memberships
We have the pleasure to announce that EUROSIS has its first full Academic Member (see below)

The Virtual Systems Research Centre at the University of Skövde in Sweden encompasses a number of research groups from various disciplines. The main areas of research within the Centre are virtual product- and production development and serious gaming. Other examples are the use of virtual manufacturing tools in healthcare organisations and simulation-based optimisation of logistic systems. The group Intelligent Automation is Preferred Research Partner for the area of virtual manufacturing within the Volvo Academic Partner Program.

And two new full time members:
1) Barbaros Bostan, National University of Singapore, Singapore
2) Helena Barbas, CENTRA-Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Caparica, Portugal

2) Job Offer

I also received the following job offer which has to be filled by September of this year.

Dear colleagues,
Next September, the Department of Mathematics of the Royal Military Academy in Brussels (Belgium) will be recruiting a researcher for a project in the field of computer simulation (applied to medical disaster management). The complete job description can be found in attachment. This job offer is open especially to those students who are right now finishing their Master.
Contact: Filip Van Utterbeeck
