Winter Simulation Conference 2022

Reimagine Tomorrow

December 11-14, 2022

Marina Bay Sands
Expo and Convention Centre
Singapore

After more than 50 years since its inception, the Winter Simulation Conference will be held in Asia for the very first time in 2022! Join us virtually, or on-site at Marina Bay Sands, the iconic landmark of Singapore, in one of the most dynamic and cosmopolitan cities in Asia from December 11-14, 2022!

The theme of WSC 2022 is derived from Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative “Singapore Reimagined.” The COVID-19 pandemic brought us a “new normal” and technological advances in the fields of robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), biotechnology, Internet of Things, quantum computing and virtual reality (VR) are changing the way humans live, work, play and communicate. Building on the “Smart Cities” focus of last year’s conference, WSC 2022 will “Reimagine Tomorrow” to evaluate not just living in an urban future where cities are safe, green and environmentally-secure with seamless power, water and transportation networks, but also working in an environment where both sustainable high-tech manufacturing and novel services play an essential role.

Well-known for its efficiency in logistics services and in the midst of developing the world’s largest next generation container port, we will look at Singapore’s future logistics and port systems integration and how simulation provides a good way to help the country plan its next move.

In addition, with more than a dozen wafer fabrication facilities in operation or under construction in Asia’s “Silicon Island,” the Modeling and Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing (MASM) subconference will be given particular attention at WSC 2022.

“Reimagine Tomorrow” relies on significant advancement from many fields such as modeling, experimentation and data analysis coming together to tackle various challenges. We invite scientific papers and case studies that highlight innovations in both theory and applications, with a specific focus on the use of not just simulation but also related technologies such as AI and VR.

A number of exciting changes will be implemented to make WSC 2022 even more attractive. Case studies will be integrated into the full paper tracks to enhance cross-fertilization between academia and industry, further supported by a Case Study Competition. The program roster will also be significantly enhanced to enable a productive hybrid format that accommodates the needs of virtual attendees from time zones across the entire globe.
