SESAM Newsletter November 2015

Dear friends and colleagues, 

We are aware that SESAM has been quiet throughout November, however, during the preparation of the November Newsletter we received the disastrous news of the Paris attacks. These kinds of tragedies throughout the world are terrible, and we feel deeply for those who lost their lives and the people who mourn the loss of their relatives and friends. Having an incident like this occur in your own country, in front of your eyes, is extremely painful and we hope this kind of terror will end soon so we can live in a peaceful world. 



3rd SESAM-ALASIC Cooperation Meeting

As you know SESAM is working hard to intensify collaborations with National Simulation Societies throughout Europe. The 3rd SESAM-ALASIC cooperation meeting took place on 8-10 November in Santiago-Chile. The first event was in Coimbra (2009) and the second was in São Paulo (2011). The Chilean society organised the 2015 event, with the scientific support of SESAM and ALASIC. SESAM was represented by the past-President; Ralf Krage, a keynote speaker; Peter Dieckmann and a scientific committee member; Francisco Matos. The meeting attracted 335 participants from 13 different countries who had great enthusiasm for simulation. The meeting included 118 posters, 15 workshops and 15 sponsors.
