2023 Winter Simulation Conference 

Simulation for Resilient Systems

December 10-13, 2023
San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter
San Antonio, TX

WSC 2023 will focus on the use of simulation to improve resiliency for a wide range of systems.

The Winter Simulation Conference 2023 highlights the vital role that simulation plays in designing, planning, and operating resilient systems under uncertainty. In an increasingly inter-connected world, it is more critical than ever to ensure that systems quickly recover from and adapt to major disruptions. With its uncertainty modeling and explainable analytics capabilities, simulation is one of the key technologies that lie at the heart of building resilient systems. We invite papers that emphasize the latest advances in simulation theory and applications showcasing the integrated use of simulation with technologies ranging from the Internet of Things and statistics to AI/ML and optimization. We particularly encourage applications of simulation to improve resiliency in a wide range of domains, including but not limited to aviation, disaster response, education, energy, finance, healthcare, infrastructure, manufacturing, national security, space systems, and supply chains.

The Winter Simulation Conference 2023 will continue the tradition of including pre-conference workshops, introductory and advanced tutorials, commercial case studies, poster sessions, and the Ph.D. Colloquium. It will also host the 19th International Conference on Modeling & Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing (MASM). WSC 2023 will showcase professional development opportunities and a Simulation Challenge for teams to compete on an industrial case study.

The Winter Simulation Conference 2023 will be held in San Antonio, Texas from December 10 to 13 in 2023. The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter is located on the beautiful waterfront within walking distance of historical sites. Join us in San Antonio for the leading conference in the field of simulation!
