October 6th to 8th, 2010, at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (formerly University of Karlsruhe)


Information about ASIM and previous conferences is available at the Web site of the current conference.



The 14th ASIM Dedicated Conference on Simulation in Production and Logistics deals with the integration aspects of simulation referring to equipment, organization and personnel in production and logistics systems. Thereby, the various functions of simulation tools should be illustrated which allow modelling, vizualization as well as evaluation of versatile organizational problems. Herewith, aspects of data management and modelling techniques have to be taken into account. Furthermore, verification and validation issues shall be considered.

This largest European simulation conference is well balanced between research, development and industrial use. Scientific innovation and successful application in every day's business are discussed similarly. Participants without simulation experience gain new insights into the possibilities and constraints of simulation, whereas experienced simulation users can compare notes.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Karlsruhe.
