Theme: Modelling for action with a flood of data and a cloud of uncertainty

With the increase in data availability and recognition of uncertainty, MODSIM2021 will focus on how modelling and simulation can be used to translate data into action. Building on the traditional modelling and simulation papers in diverse areas, papers will explore the conference theme from a wide spectrum of disciplinary perspectives organized in different streams. Papers can approach the theme from different angles, including quantitative and qualitative modelling, and stakeholder engagement techniques. We encourage innovative approaches using novel modelling objectives. Special themes of the conference will include methods that take advantage of large datasets, scenario modelling of uncertain futures under climate change, resource constraints, and conflicting objectives. In 2021 the workshops for MODSIM will occur on late Thursday afternoon and Friday, we are inviting members to set up Special Interest Groups and put suggestions forward for a workshop in their area of interest.
