Research and development is considered as an essential component of higher education, due to its pioneering role in exploring the knowledge base, establishing better insights, and maintaining dynamism in the ‘teaching – learning’ process. The conference focuses on the frontier themes of simulation modeling, and analysis, as applied to multiple disciplines of engineering. Simulation is a powerful and widely applied methodology for studying the behaviour of a variety of systems in order to develop solutions to problems in their design and operation. It is perhaps the only resort when there is a need to analyze and understand systems characterized by complex and probabilistic behavior, especially when such systems cannot be modeled using strict mathematical formulations. Several engineering and technological systems exhibit such behavior.
The rapid advances in computer hardware and architecture added with the development of powerful computational software have contributed heavily to the problem solving and decision making process in engineering. It is now possible to simulate many complex real world systems and obtain solutions to their problems. Consequently, we have reached a stage wherein computer simulation has become an essential and indispensable ingredient in the curriculum of all engineering disciplines.
In the context of engineering design and analysis, the simulation process essentially involves developing a mathematical model that represents the physical system under study and obtain solutions using numerical methods. The conference is aimed at bringing together the researchers and engineers working in the area of simulation and modeling to exchange their ideas and also to formulate a road map through discussions and deliberations for the young engineers to follow-through.
The conference includes pre-conference workshops, post-conference workshops, keynote addresses, technical paper presentations from academia and industry, panel discussions, exhibits, contests and poster sessions.
