Gas Cloud Simulation

A simulation of how a gas cloud that has been observed approaching the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy.

Advanced Test Reactor Simulation

Advanced simulation capabilities can model reactors, such as INL's Advanced Test Reactor shown here, from atomic scales to full-sized reactor assemblies.

Underwater EVA Simulation

Underwater simulation of extravehicular activity (EVA).

Combat Simulation

A screen capture depicts a combat situation in a digital world during a command post exercise inside the Joint Multinational Simulations Center.

Motorcycle Simulator

Testing motorcycle simulator at the Pentagon to get a feel for how the bike would handle some situations.

Wake Turbulence Simulation

Wake turbulence simulation for an Airbus A340 on final approach, just before touchdown.

Driving Conditions Simulator

View from the cockpit of the simulator. Multiple screens provide a view similar to what one would see in a snowplow on the road.

Molecules Simulation

Dynamic computer simulations of molecular systems.

Global Aerosols Simulation

This portrait of global aerosols was produced by a Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Version 5 (GEOS-5) simulation at a 10-kilometer resolution.

Driving Simulation

Simulation for driving training.

ACM SIGSIM Travel Support Program for Ph.D. Students

to attend Winter Simulation Conference and ACM SIGSIM PADS


Call for Nominations

 

To support the professional development of Ph.D. students working in the field of modeling and simulation, SIGSIM offers travel support for up to 15 students to attend the Winter Simulation Conference (10) and ACM SIGSIM PADS (5).

Individual awards of up to $1000 will be made. These awards can be used for travel, lodging, and registration expenses. Awardees will need to submit receipts for reimbursement after attending the conference.

Dates

  1. Application materials should be submitted to the SIGSIM Education Committee at least three months prior to the conference start date.
  2. Students will be notified of award decisions within one month.

Requirements

  1. The applicant must be enrolled in a Ph.D. program.
  2. The student's research must relate directly to advancing the art of simulation.
  3. The applicant must be a current member of SIGSIM.
  4. Supported students may be asked to offer some assistance to the conference organizers and SIGSIM at the conference. This may require up to four hours of their time at the conference.

Application materials should include:

  1. A statement of up to 500 words describing how participation in the ACM SIGSIM conference, WSC or PADS, will benefit the student's professional development (including detail on how the monies will be spent).
  2. A description of the student's research objectives in the field of modeling and simulation and how this research will advance the field.
  3. The student's current curriculum vitae.
  4. A support letter from an individual familiar with the student's simulation-related research.
  5. An academic transcript of the student's graduate work. This transcript should show that the student is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program.

The above materials should be submitted via email within a single zip file to:

Dr. David Bell, Chair
SIGSIM Education Committee
