The inaugural International Simulation Expo opens in Beijing, the capital of China, on October 9,2016.
BEIJING, Oct. 10 (ChinaMil) -- Approved by China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and China's Ministry of Commerce, the International Simulation Expo 2016, the inaugural global simulation expo, kicked off on October 9 in Beijing. The expo is hosted by the Chinese Association for System Simulation (CASS).
Together with the expo, the International Simulation Multi-Conference 2016 (AsiaSim / SCS AutumnSim 2016), co-hosted by the Federation of Asia Simulation Societies (ASIASIM) and the Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS) also opened on Oct 8.
More than 500 representatives from China's military, defense science and technology industries, related enterprises, universities, research institutes and more than 100 media representatives attended the opening ceremony of the expo.
The opening ceremony of the expo was chaired by CASS President Zhao Qinping, who is also academician of the China Academy of Engineering.
The exhibition area is nearly 10,000 square meters and the number of visitors are expected to reach 15,000.
The theme of the 2016 International Simulation Multi-Conference is "theory, methodology, tools and applications for modeling and simulation of complex systems". Lectures, panel discussions and forums will be held focusing on the topics of modeling and simulation theory and method, model engineering, high performance computing and simulation, intelligent city modeling and simulation, intelligent manufacturing simulation, military simulation, and cloud technology in simulation applications.
