2018 Winter Simulation Conference

Simulation has been found useful for a range of scientific, engineering and business applications as evident by the papers presented at Winter Simulation Conferences over the past 50 years. Simulation has been employed to help noble causes too over the recent past but such efforts have received limited attention. The 2018 conference seeks to highlight applications of simulation for noble causes in addition to continuing to report leading developments and applications in other fields. We especially invite papers describing uses of simulation in efforts analyzing and addressing issues facing humanity including, but not limited to, reducing poverty and world hunger, social causes, social problems, improving natural environment, and disaster response.

Participatory Research Courses

How do you do when you co-produce? How combine research and development? How involve partners in research projects?

These challenges are present at IDT in most projects, and is something that is focused in MDH's policy. It is not always easy ... but there are research traditions like Action Research and Interactive Research, which has rich experience and knowledge in dealing with these issues.

During the spring semester PhD courses in Participatory Research is given in two variants, including Action Research and Interactive Research.

Participatory Research I, introductory course:
Deltagarbaserad forskning, kurs I/Participatory Research, course I
Participatory Research II, second/”paradigm” course:
Deltagarbaserad forskning, kurs II/Participatory Research, course II

You will meet participants from different disciplines and Swedish universities. An aim is to support planning, implementation and reflection on R & D projects with a Co-production/Participatory approach. The courses start 12 March. We are also open to the participation of practitioners, e.g. our partners in organizations and companies, who are interested to deepen the understanding of R & D in collaboration with academia - so feel free todisseminate this information!
