2017 DBSS Symposium

Simulation & Data: an unbreakable bond

Delft, The Netherlands, November 18th 2016

Symposium Aims

After last year’s successful 30th Anniversary Symposium, on Friday, September 8th, the 2017 DBSS Symposium: Simulation & Data: an unbreakable bond was held at the TU Delft Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. The interesting talks by six keynote speakers from academy and industry aimed to show the importance of data analysis and its relationship with current simulation methodologies.

The event registered a good attendance with an audience comprised primarily of researchers, junior researchers and industry members. Six different presentations were given between the morning and afternoon session and in between there was also space for the young researchers session. The six presentations from the guest speakers were ranging between simulation of traffic prediction and routing (Prof. Jan van Schuppen and – Dr. Javier Alonso Mora) and simulation for environmental purposes (Dr. Ghada El-Serafy and Prof. Ann Wellens). Data processing and numerical simulation was also part of the program with two presentations (Dr. Nils van Velzen and Dr. Domenico Lahaye). It is also worth mentioning the contribution of the six young researchers who enriched the program with their presentations (link to the post for the students). All the participants of the symposium showed their interest in the activities promoted by the DBSS and some of them will be integrated in the DBSS work team for the organization of further activities. The event ended with the final remarks, conclusions and drinks session where the new steering committee of the society was announced (link to the news).
