Commercial & Industrial Case Studies

NEW! Industrial & Commercial Case Studies

You might have done important work where you used simulation to conduct analysis and provide recommendations for potential solutions to a specific problem; or where simulation is the backbone of a commercial application enabling critical use cases that you would like to share with others. But perhaps you do not have the time and resources required to submit a full paper and make early commitments to participate at the 2022 Winter Simulation Conference.

To support your commercially focused contributions, you are cordially invited to submit to 2022 WSC a 2-page Extended Abstract describing an industrial or commercial case study. Unlike in previous years, case studies will not be kept in a separate track anymore. Rather, for all application-oriented topics (see below for the full list), presentations of such case studies will be fully integrated into the respective full paper presentation tracks. This will enable WSC to not only feature more prominently exciting commercial show cases illustrating the benefits that have been achieved with novel methodologies and solutions, but also to much more effectively catalyze cross-fertilization between Academia and Industry.

An Extended Abstract should use the WSC Extended Abstract template for paper submission and describe the problem, the simulation methods used, the results, and the impact/benefits achieved. Those case studies selected for presentation at WSC will have a summary appear in the final program of WSC and on the WSC Archive website but will not be published elsewhere.
