CALL FOR SUBMISSION and SAVE THE DATE: European Simulation Research Network (SiReN) virtual meeting on 14th October 2021!

Registration is now live for SiReN meeting and SESAM Winter School here
As part of SESAM’s strategic plan, we are pleased to announce the second SiReN meeting following our inaugural event at the SESAM 2019 meeting in Glasgow.  The European Simulation Research Network is a grass-roots, collaborative group of simulation researchers working at all levels—from novice researchers through to experienced research colleagues—supported by SESAM. 

After our inaugural meeting established some network principles and assigned volunteers to key roles we are now excited to focus the 14th October 2021 meeting on current research projects. We intend to have direct mentee-mentor discussions and will include mini-workshop-like sessions on relevant simulation research topics relevant to the SESAM audience. Everyone interested in simulation research and education is encouraged to attend, to network, and to learn from and with their peers.  



We also invite simulation practitioners and researchers to apply to present their current research in a short ALERT (Advanced Look Exploratory Research Template) presentation. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to get tailored feedback from our experienced researchers and other attendees to improve their project or develop collaborations. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your work, develop it further with tailored feedback, and engage with a network of simulation researchers. 

To apply to present your work please email with a short abstract and reason why you would like to present at this meeting. 

Deadline for applications for ALERT presentations – 18th September 2021 

What is an ALERT presentation?  

An ALERT (Advanced Look Exploratory Research Template) presentation is a 5 minute presentation that encapsulates either your new simulation-based research idea (as a new ALERT). The idea is to present the distilled essence of your study. The concept of ALERT presentations has been adapted by SESAM on the model developed by our partner research organization, the International Network for Simulation Based Research (INSPIRE). The ALERTs are presented in this format back-to-back. Once the presentation is delivered you will be assigned a small table where you will discuss your project with up to 10 participants, receive feedback, and in turn have the opportunity to give feedback to others. Our ultimate goal is to give your team the feedback and networking you need to launch a successful single or multi-site study.
