MODSIM World is dedicated to promoting cooperation among academia, industry and government for applying modeling and simulation technologies to help organizations anticipate and prepare for the future. Governor Terry McAuliffe of the state of Virginia gave the keynote address to open the conference which was held in Virginia Beach. He spoke about his plans for developing business and economic opportunities in Virginia, and the role that modeling and simulation plays in exploring possibilities and making those plans a reality.
In the second annual entrepreneurship competition at MODSIM World (http://modsimworld.org/), Michael Hugos made the presentation for SCM Globe. We were selected from a field of contestants by judges and conference attendees as the winner. Contestants were judged on considerations ranging from “the cool factor” to ease of use, affordability, and potential for making a significant impact and positive contribution to how work and training is done in a given profession or industry.
