Financial Terms

An accepted conference university tutor receives a free conference registration plus a free publication of his tutorial paper. University tutorial presenters will receive also an honorarium depending on the number of attendees registering specifically for the tutorial outside the conference registrants. The precise amount of the honorarium will be determined immediately after the early registration deadline.

Tutorials that have less than 8 early registrants will face the risk of cancellation.

Tutorial Selection Committee

The proposals received will be reviewed by the Selection Committee to ensure a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference. The goal of the Selection Committee is to provide a diverse set of tutorials that attract a large interest among the broad segments within the diverse simulation community.

Effective organizational decision-making often requires deep understanding of various aspects of an organisation such as goals, structure, business-as-usual, operational processes etc. The large size of an organisation, its socio-technical characteristics, and fast business dynamics make this a challenging endeavor. This tutorial presents a model-based simulation approach to organisational decision-making. We introduce a new technology that supports the approach and illustrate how it is applied to real life problems using real world case studies.
