The Influence and Use of Simulation in Transport Industries

Delft, The Netherlands, November 18th 2016

Symposium Aims

The Dutch Benelux Simulation Society (DBSS), founded in July 1986, is one of the oldest Simulation Societies of Europe and one of the founders of EUROSIM. Although the Society has been inactive for some time, its 30th Anniversary was celebrated as a new start with a Symposium on The Influence and Use of Simulation in Transport Industries. The very interesting talks by six keynote speakers from academy and industry aimed to show the utility, necessity and applications of simulation in transport industries.
