Simulation techniques are widely applied in both manufacturing and service operations. Simulation techniques play an essential role to improve and optimize these systems from process to supply chain levels, which makes this a very open and interesting subject.

Modelling of virtual worlds

Due to their complexity and size, virtual worlds used in next-gen games will have to be automatically generated, to a large extent, whether based on real data or fully imaginary. Representing objects and their relations in these worlds needs to take into account more data than simply their geometry or appearance. In addition, most objects in such worlds will typically require a high degree of adaptivity, in order to avoid most current rigid behaviours, as well as to cope with the need for really adaptive game-play in both entertainment and serious games.

Perceptual User Interfaces for Games

Humans communicate using speech, gesture, and body motion, yet today's computers do not use this valuable information. Instead, computers force users to sit at a typewriter keyboard, stare at a TV-like display, and learn an endless set of arcane commands -- often leading to frustration, inefficiencies, and disuse.

The idea behind PUI is that a computer system "hears" users' voice commands and "sees" their gestures and body positions. Interactions are natural, more like human-to-human interactions. PUI use here machine perception to allow users to interact with computergames and within computer gaming environments. By reading gestures, motions and speech we should be able to in a much more natural way interact with the games.

But sensor systems deliver only raw position and pose information. For interface use, these are not the desired quantities”we need to understand the abstractions appropriate for a natural interface and consider how the various perceptual input degrees of freedom should relate to available commands and options.
